I like Matco wrenches but not their impact sockets...I think the metal they use for them is too hard, I had a few crack on me including one this morning. Sucks because our Matco Rep only comes every other week when he feels like it and is usually a dick when trying to get something exchanged

99.9% all Snap-On. I have been a professional mechanic for over 35 years. Long ago, Craftsman was a good tool at a good value. But some time ago, I started having trouble getting Sears to honor the "lifetime" warranty. After the third time when they wouldn't honor the warranty, I told them I would never buy another Craftsman tool. I told them that my tools put the roof over my family's head, food on the table and clothes on our backs. I need a tool I can depend on and when it fails, I need to know the manufacturer will stand behind them.

I had many Snap-On tools before that but I had a pretty good mix between the two. Since that time, it has been Snap-On only. I have NEVER had a Snap-On dealer give me ANY hassle over a failed tool, which rarely happens. Also, as others have pointed out, the Snap-On dealer comes to me. You get what you pay for.

For the week-end or hobby mechanic who can afford to stop the work they are doing while they run to the store to replace a tool, and whose tools are not used EVERY DAY, some of the lesser expensive brands are fine. But when I am in the middle of a job and a tool takes a crap, it is a BIG deal.
