Why do you need snap or MAC tools? I have some of each along with Craftsman. Given I have never broke a snap-on or mac tool, I would not buy them. Craftsmans are lifetime guaranteed. I even had some that were just rusty and they even exchanged those!

Snap-on, cheapest place to find it is ebay, other than that, you gotta get it directly through snap-on, off their trucks, or from their store

same with MAC i believe

I have heard that those good tools sold at Lowes are snapon with a different name, but they don't have a lot of variety, and even they aren't cheap, also don't have the snap on name, forget what they are called.

Craftsman are great, But Snap on is a great tool as well.. I really dont nkow differences in how they are made, but most pro mechanics, tell me Craftsman sucks and to only buy Snap on


I wish i knew why...

But i bought a 1000 piece craftsman tool/technition set and a professional box from our tech program for cheap, that and i still buy tools, get some around the shop... get some free... i have so much tools... and all i want is.... more tools... lol iam a tool junkie.

Snap on should last a lot longer, look what you have to pay for them. The snap on truck guys run charge accounts for all the guys on their trucks, this is the only way they can manage to buy that stuff, same with Mac. Craftsman stands behind their tools as well as any brand on the market, you really don't know what you are getting, Sears makes nothing, they buy from the lowest bidder, sort of like the government.

Not really it just happened that most of my tools are Craftsman. I personally would buy S&K tools over any on the market.
You gotta know I live wayyyyyyyyyyy out in the boonies and when my tool collection was in its infancy there was no internet. The snap-on or Mac truck had never heard of any town within 100 miles of me. We had a Sears that was like 45mins away. I wanted to work on autos so I bought what was available at the time. Over the years Ive purchased speciality parts in diff brands but Sears still sees me when its time to replace a well worn part from the Craftsman line.
They arent the best but with a lifetime warranty and the price of them the home/yard mechanic cant beat the deal. OK enough rambling. Ill shud up now

I have a few stanley tools Brent, lots of the Wal Mart Popular Mechanics tools that Stanley Made and which have about disappeared from Wal Mart now. Lifetime replacement warranty, still trying to figure out how they are going to back that up now.

Oh, I have no idea how many tools I have, I lost count long, long ago, several boxes full. I have NAPA, Craftsman, Stanley and Popular Mechanics, Benchmark (Kmart), and a little of this and that. Thorsen, Great Neck, some I can't think of right off hand.
