snap on is too expensive, and mac is getting there too now. only good thing is the lifetime replacement warranty.
i mostly use mastercraft maximum and buy them on sale at canadian tire. comes with lifetime warranty as well.
even snap on go bad after enough use. then you have to wait for the salesman to show up to repair/replace them.
i get mine cheap enough that i could replace them 10 times and still be ahead over SO or MAC.
although with lifetime warranties, i won't worry about that either.
tools go on sale at ct continuously at 60-70% off.
i'm sure sears does the same on occasion with their craftsman tools. just buy the best on sale with lifetime warranties and you'll make out better. i still use mac for my air impact guns and specialty tools. but general hand tools are just too expensive and not really of any better quality.
