Frank you just bought my Lifetime Rant, I worked my way though college in a High end VW/Porsche Shop and I learned this lesson the Hard Way! <rant> The Snap-On man is a Dirty Crack dealer, no better than a PIMP. You see he gives you a little credit, and every payday he's there with his hand out. and you pay off that little Credit, and he ups you credit limit, pay it off and MORE credit until he's taking 1/4 of your weeks pay or more! and you have a bad week, the kids are sick, the wife need food for the Family Table, ohh Rent's due, too bad "PAY ME". and you have one bad day, but you've paid $9,300 on a $9,500 but your Kid get's hurt, and you don't have his MONEY for the first time and he takes that Box and tools back. Then 2 weeks latter he's back to give you some Credit, and sell you back that box you owed $200 on for $2,500, Because he Knows you're his HO, and he owns you. Once he takes your box you find out how hard it is to work out of MILK CRATES and ROOFERS toolboxes, All this and more at unfair and complex interest Rates that Boarder on USURY. Over the Years I've been rid of anything with that name on it and replace it with OLD Craftsman and other tools </Rant>That was sightly after cracking a new Snap-On socket. I treated my Snap-On tools like gold! Probably because you needed a lot of gold to buy them! Snap-On guy took it and sent it to the company, they supposedly Xrayed it and told me I over stressed it so they were not going to replace it! Snap-On I guess has changed because the local guy now will replace any Snap-On wrench without question.
