I take back my statement, that Craftsman wrenches are good for lawn-movers.
I tried to start my lawn-mover yesterday and obviously had to take carburetor apart for cleaning for new season.
Craftsman 7/16 box was too thick to fit on manifold bolt and I had to use open end, risking damaging soft screw. Worked this time, but wouldn't like to take chances like that on Mercedes.

Years ago I realized the quality of Snap-On tools. They look good, feel right, and work well every single day. As others have mentioned, they carry a lifetime warranty as well. Oh, did I say the Snap-On truck reliably comes to nearly every auto & related shop where people make their living using quality tools. Other brands such as Mac Tools, etc. may or may not give the same level of service depending on your location, but it has been my experience that Snap-On is always there.

Working in the automobile trade, I started my collection in the late 1960s, and purchased from the tool truck last in the late 1980's. I paid the the Snap-On man every week for a long time.

Alhough it has been years since I've stopped working in the trade, I'm still proud of those tools and glad I went with the Snap-On brand.

Cheers, MBL

I'm glad I have the quality tools to futz around with my hobby cars & household projects today.
