Harbor Freight tools arent bad just take them for what they are. I have their impact sockets, use them with my cornwell gun at 150 psi, never hurt even one of them. Gun is good for about 600 ft lbs.

I can't even use Craftsman tools, I've broken about 50% of the ones I've used and those were the old ones when they were supposed to be good. I'm all about the Matco tools, don't think I've broken a single one of them. Broken a few of my Snap on tools though.

Just about every one of my tools are craftsman. Ive broken a lot of snap-on tools and had real bad service when i tried to get them replaced. Ive never had a problem with sears about replacing broken tools.

Yep Sears tools are good, not the best, but when the fail you drive down the road and swap them out. Strap=on charges 5x for the same tool, takes their sweet @ss time coming to the shop to swap it, then doesnt have it on the truck, takes a month to get it........... Thanks ill stick with Craftsman and swap it out issue free the same day if fails.

You know most harbor freight tools are lifetime warranty if you take em back they will give you a new one no questions asked and dealing with snap on yeah waiting once a week for them to show up and get a ratchet fixed is a pain although I do like there tools.

Most of my tools are all special order anyway where i work on rvs. Snap-on doesnt even carry a lot of my tools so ive stuck with my craftsman plus they deliver to my shop where as nobody else but the interstate battery man does once every 3 months

I was cleaning the gears in my ratchets one day when I noticed the 1/2 drive Craftsman gears looked identical to my 22" long flex head K-mart 1/2" ratchet. I use the K-Mart ratchet for breaking bolts loose with a 24" extension pipe. Both ratchets still work perfectly! I have broken a few sockets, but only when they were used improperly, . i.e. .. my fault.

Thats because Sears and all it's brands are owned by K-Mart

They are united now, but I bought both of the ratchets in the mid '70's. 40 years ago.
