    TX who do ya'll think makes the best automotive tools?

    I used to have a close friend who had a snap-on franchise.. I used to go around with him, 2 days a week, and we considering having me work for him with my own route in his area.. but we decided against it, in the end..

    I still prefer Snap-On over Matco or anyone else..

    I purchased my dad many tools, from my friend..

    I have a bit of everything now, a lot of snap on/blue point, matco, mac, wera, stahwille, craftsman, sunex, etc. I dont there there is one brand where everything is the best across the board for everything. The job you are doing determines what the best tool is. There are times where your favorite ratchet just wont fit or you cant get the right angle so you gotta use your backup. I like snap on 3/8 ratchets for heavier work, but prefer a matco 1/4 for smaller stuff, and my mac bit ratchets are the best investment I ever made. But thats based on what I am doing and how I am doing it.

    Dont let the big sexy ad campaigns or company logos on a race car trick you into thinking one brand is the best for everything.

                thats something you can ask someone else.. all I know is it was moved, and I dont think it was moved to the right sub-forum.. I would think it would belong in the non classified tool section..

                      I have been ordering Tekton now... I really like them.

                      Had craftsman before that but they have gone downhill imho.

                        For home use, GearWrench is about as expensive as I'd ever spend. I cruise offerup/c-list for guys selling buckets of old Craftsman tools too, the old US made shit is good, their china made shit isn't any better than any other chinese shit. Sunex and Tekton are also pretty good.

                        I wrench for a living with a box full of tools from all the big names but I won't spend the money on new Snap-On anything anymore, I don't even walk out to the truck if/when he shows up. They keep jacking the price up on the same shit over and over so I'm done with em, most of their tools aren't any better than the equivalent Mac or Matco. For home use, any of the truck brands are too large an investment to make any sense at all if you're buying new.

                          I don't wrench for a living,but I do have a decent collection. Sunnex, Tekton, GearWrench, Knipex, Kobalt, some Craftsman.
                          I did put together sets of Snap On combo line wrenches from Ebay because there's no comparison.

                            Line wrenches are one of the few things that FapOff does do better than the rest, one of these years I'll find a used set for the right money.

                              I put sets together from Ebay 1 pc at a time. On average I think I spent $17 each but they don't match and some of them are not pretty. I don't care if they're shiny as long as they don't strip the fittings!

                              They're all combos with an open end and a line wrench of the same size on each one.
