I watched that and thought " I wonder who donated that box"! Scott buys a lot of tools at Harbor Freight so the Snapon thing surprised me.

I bought a 3/4 drive 600lb torque wrench 2 days ago on CL.
Most of my snapon tools have someone else's name engraved on them.
I buy tools from guys retiring and pawn shops and yard sales,i have bought several garages full of tools before,estate sale stuff.
I make an offer on everything in the building,sometimes i get the stuff..

Snappy makes the best ratchets, second is Matco, Mac is garbage. Had to pop for a Snappy torque wrench, longest I could find, need the leverage.

Check out Precision Instruments for toque wrenches.. I think they make them for Snap on and they are not nearly the snap on price. I am slowly collecting one of each size.. I started with the 3/4” drive up to 600ft/lbs.. makes torquing lug nuts much easier.

I'm sure his kid bought that box, but who knows.

I have very few snap-on tools. I did buy a set of metric flare nut wrenches off the truck in town, guy I grew up with and I needed them like yesterday, gave me $100 off and it was still like $275 for the set. But those are the best flare nut wrenches I've ever used.

I really like my Matco stuff, I bought a few large open ends from the Matco truck back in the 80's in Arizona, but haven't seen a Matco truck in years - they still around?

I like my Snap-On tools as well, expensive, but I've never broken one.

If the BGM got a deal on a toolbox,good on him.
I gave most of my snappy stuff to my SiL,all worn out stuff that he got fixed on the snappy truck.
Its all about bragging rights when you a young mechanic,and theres not better bragging rights than saying my FiL gave me all these tools.


And the tools all have a date code on them,he can tell how old they are,which is cool.
I have about 20 snappy 3/4 drive sockets,old,old,old.
I bet they date back into the 30's,40's.
I guess i should check the dates on them.
I still use them,SiL is outta luck on getting them.

I have a lot of Williams tools. Most were inherited from my Dad who only bought used Williams. He never had a ratchet or sockets, only flat wrenches, box, open end and combinations. Being a good boy, for years I did the same. I even bought some old Williams tools from my Army unit when they auctioned them off. They have USA etched in them by hand. I bought a new Williams 1/2" socket set in 1969, but haven't seen any of their tools in stores since then. Now that I've reached a certain age, I buy cheap stuff that won't have to last for 80 years.
