    I mainly use Craftsman too, but also I use Ingersol Rand if I can. But when I did my Procharger install I needed a couple sockets quick so I went to the Autozone around the corner and bought their duralast brand. I'm ashamed to admit to it.

    I use Craftsman because they are supplied by sears, so if something breaks, I can go down there and get another one right away.

    While I don't doubt the quality of the tools sold on the trucks at work (Snap-on, Matco and Mac) if I break something, sometimes I can't wait a week for the guy to come back and replace it.

    I have a wide variety, mostly Craftsman, but I also have Mac sockets and Snap-on wrench sets and ratchets. I have had Snap-on air tools and actually had better life out of the craftsman and no name cheapies.

    When I started working on cars for a living I had all Craftsman since thats what I had at home. Over time I switched to Snap On. Craftsman is great for the home but you'll be more likely to break the craftsman tool vs the Snap On/Mac tool. And if you dont want to wait a week ( I usually have back ups anyway) you can always call the tool man and go meet him where hes at on his route. Usually alot closer than heading to Sears. Alot of times my guy will stop by that day anyway to help me out.

    Snap-On and Craftsman. I have quite a bit of both. I'm with Keliente on the convenience of being able to take a quick trip to Sears and replace a broken tool.

    Have a large 6ft tall Craftsman toolbox with mostly Craftsman tools. I'm only 18 and don't have a huge collection of tools, but evey time I go to Sears I expand my collection...

    I've always been loyal to Craftsman. First, Sears is always convenient and always a good price. Second, in 176 I was trying to remove an exhaust manifold from an Austin Healey 3000 (I was a Healey freak for a while) and I could not free a bolt, so I put a six foot pipe on the end of a 1/2 inch rachet coket wrench and applied pressure: twisted the ahdnel before the racket tore.

    Sears replaced it with no questions (and odd look at me, but no questions).

    I took the new one home and promptly broke it.

    Seats replaced it, no questions, too.

    the next time the penetrating oil and worked and the maniufold came off.

    I always thought that was quite nice of them to replace two rachet coekt wrecnhes in 24 hours like that.

    I worked for Sears-you can take a wrench and heat it red hot and bend it in the vise to make a special tool. when you'e done -take it back-as long as they can read the number they'll return it
