ive done that too.
a lot of guys get their tools from harbor freight.
i have a few things from them but that is not quality stuff.
if all youre doing is working on your lawn mower every now and then i suppose harbor freight is good enough.
if youre in the shop 8 hours a day like i am putting those tools through it, they will not hold up.
i get the sale ads in the mail and i see the prices and i have to take a moment to remind myself that they are not quality.
i have an oil filter wrench from harbor freight. i have a trouble light but i wouldnt trust them for much else.
i used to be all about the tool trucks and sears but not im going to be done with sears and stick the the trucks and lowes.
hey occrest, do you know who makes the snap on stuff? they probably do it themselves huh. i didnt know if a spot like waterloo made them.
of course snap on is the best there is but the prices are insane.
how much more quality can it be?
i just paid 498 for this husky.
check this out. this a 10 drawer bottom chest only from snap on.
its 5 grand. just for the bottom
i dont see how much more quality it is over husky or kobalt.
people pay for the name.
maybe people think the better the name the better mechanic they will be.
i didnt know the same company made boxes for sears, lowes, and depot.
occrest, why the price differences? is it because of the name on the box?
i was walking around the mall with my wife and daughter and cruised through sears the other day and i was looking at the boxes.
they had a 25 inch top, middle, and bottom for 350.
i dont get those prices when this husky is 500.
the sears box didnt have roller bearings. it didnt have the top struts. didnt come with liners. didnt have the handle on the side and it had those
lame ass bars for a locking mechanism.
