    I have a few Cresent tools and never had a problem with them that wasn't my fault.

    Craftsman tools....I think they make the wrench edges so sharp you can't pull hard enough to break them (and make them replace them for free).

    I can't work with gloves on. Couldn't take them even when I lived up north and I'd grab a tool that was so cold it would stick to my hand. I like to be able to reach where I can't see and feel what size bolt or nut is there, be able to feel around and find a little screw that fell somewhere I can't see it. They would save me an occasional blood-letting but I learned to accept I'm gonna end up bleeding somewhere.

    yeah i guess they would be a good idea around a hot exhaust! i've got a pair somewhere out in the garage, i'll dig them out for when times are better and i'm putting my magnaflow on!
