If you want to buy the best air tools buy Ingersoll-Rand. I pretty sure that Snap on just has someone else build their air tools, and puts a high price on them, many companies like Snap on do. Snap on builds hand tools. If your going to buy an Impact, or another tool that you need alot of torque from I would recommend you by a good name brand tool, but if you want a 90 degree sander, Die Grinder, or something of that nature you can get away with a cheaper tool. Still a better tool is nicer to work with, and if you keep them oiled, and don't slam them on the ground, and stuff they should last a long time. I use many air tool everyday, and here is the best place in my opinion to buy good tools from. :pop2:

Re: Air Tools

Lets look at how often your going to be working with them every day or on the weekends for money of for pleasure?I use Craftsman until it breaks I will upgrade but right now I have ran the snot out of em in school for over a year and have been doing the same at home on the weekends and at work everyday yeah I oil them regulary not daily though.Snap on,Matco,SK and IR are all very nice and yet one day I will have them but for right now Craftsman is fine that said there are some specialty tools only they have and you got to go to em to get em my friends work at dealer ships its nothing for them to spend 150 bucks a week and only get one or two things.

S&K is either made by the Hand of God or the result of a deal with Satan. I haven't figured out which yet.

Re: Air Tools

i buy whatever is at Harbor Freight.

$20 bucks for a DA sander, $20 for a 1/2" air wrench. i think it was $50 for a set of a Air Impact Gun, Wrench, Gravity Fed Spraygun, 1/2" Deep sockets, hose, fittings, and a spray nozzle with different tips.

Re: Air Tools

Re: Air Tools

If I remember correctly, Chicago Pneumatic makes craftsman's everyday use air tools and IR makes their pro line. So you can't really go wrong either way with craftsman.

Re: Air Tools

Actually Sioux Makes the best air tool in the world. Rockwell use to. In the Aerospace world many use sears, Ingersoll Rand, Snap-on Bluepoint, and Chicago Pneumatic. But Sioux is the best, lightest and there is no one better

Snap-on is not overpriced consider they come to you and allow you to pay on time. They have some of the best tool on earth. If you are a average joe and dont have account you pay full price. I am a premier account holder I walk on a truck and get 20-30% automatically

I have over $15,000 in snap-on tools and tool boxes including air tools

Im am 45 I have worked in Aircraft Maintenance with every possible air tool for over 25 years I have had them all. Though I am now a Quality engineer I still use tools on a very regual basis. Aircraft Mechanic and builders are the top of the line in Mechanical work and hands down if you ask them they will say Sioux. That is what Lockheed, Boeing, Grumman Northrop, Airbus and just about any person in Aviation will say. Period now do they all have Sioux No but that is what they would buy if they could. You are not going to every by Sioux at Harbour Freight or for 49.99. So that is why some people will never by Sioux. Sort of why most people will never buy a terminator. They just cost to much but that does not mean they dont want one!!!!
