I have a pretty complete set of snap-on metric tools all from pawn shops and flea markets. S-K ratchets are real nice to work with. Their is a difference. A truck tool is so much better. Both a Ford escort and a old 300D will get you to work.

I try to buy tools not made in China or Taiwan if I can afford it. Usually that equates to one of the well known companies that have been mentioned. I also have a Blackhawk 3/8" ratchet that I have had forever and really like it.

I by Craftsman and have never had a problem returning anything broken but then I buy them at Orchard Supply and not at Sears. The last time I returned a tool was 2 months ago. There are a few other stores that carry Craftsman also.
I worked at a site for 20 years that the Snap On truck came to but I am not going to pay that much even though I make my living with tools.
I have collected my tools over many years and I probably have ten or twenty different brands. The only time I have ever broken a tool has been when I was using it in a way it wasn’t intended.
When I was working at the site I mentioned before there was a Craftsman salesman that came around and sold a line called Craftsman Professional Tools and they were really good tools (better than the regular Craftsman) and carried the Craftsman guarantee.
