When son was in auto school, Snap-On came in and selling their shiney tool packages to the kids. They would even set up financing lol. Now nothing against Snap-On tools. I said no! Took him down to HF, bought him all the tools in their package and more for less than 1/4 what Snap-On wanted. He still has those tools 20 years later, except for the ones his buddies borrowed and didn't return. They are still working everyday.

I bought a lithium string trimmer a couple years ago after my gas one died one afternoon. Thought it would last a week or so just enough to get through a few jobs. That thing is still going strong and is now my favorite.

I spend too much every time I go into one. You just have to use your head about what your buying.

I keep planting them and they never take root. I just buy more, I try to keep them in every truck and tractor, if I use them once when in a bind they are worth it.

What a racket. A coworker went to auto school and the exact thing happened. He was just telling me about it a couple days ago. 19 years old financed 10k for 16 percent interest. Said several of his buddies financed 30k or better. Between the school and snap on, its almost criminal. I wouldnt buy a thing from those crooks.

These things are great. We use them often, and for what we need them for, there isnít a better tool.

8-in-1 wrench. $11.99 at harbor freight.

If you pay in cash, snap on isn't too bad to do business with. I only buy 1-3 hand tools @ a time from snap on. No power tools from snap on. There's plenty of reviews on YouTube and other social media to help sort out the junk . I don't like snap on adjustable wrenches for one. I'm more of a Klein tools fan.

My Cousin in law helped me roof my cabin and we managed to kill his pancake compressor. When I asked the store manager if they sold replacement O-Rings, He practically BEGGED me to bring it in and exchange it for a new one. Great service from them.
