Won't buy from Snap On again....
Bought a screwdriver set from Snap On when I worked at Dodge, blew up at my boss less than a month later and got escorted off the property by police.
Got a promotion to trailer mechanic at Land Air, bought a $3500 Snap On box, got laid off 2 weeks later.

Loved getting my hands dirty until I bought from Snap On, now I work at a library.

You lost me. What does that have to do with Snap On? This industry can be fickle, and techs move around. This is common.

I use Snap-On. Not really because they are any better than others, but my guy shows up every week and takes care of any tool I may have broken.

Fun fact about those new Snappy boxes: they bring a key fob like a car with alarm. Press a button it arms, press a button it unlocks complete with "beep" like an automobile.

It's cool and I can't knock a guy for taking pride in his work, but man I personally just can't see myself spending dough like that on literal furniture for tools. Tools is a different story. I have some imported sockets and specialty tools that costed a pretty penny, but they make me money and pay for themselves in the long run.


Milwaukee has GPS trackers in their top dog drills now, coworker showed me on his phone, where his brother had them. Disconnect the battery and they last ~1 year. Wish I had those when all of my tools were stolen.

Yeah, I agree. I had a hard time justifying my couple hundred dollars shed that I keep all of my tools in now.
But I didn't put my hair in a pony tail for nothing so if I'm going home alone I'm not going at all.

See for me, that is my Matco guy. He is a legit beast when it comes to on-hand inventory, ordering stuff, and following through on orders/making sure you get your stuff on time. Plus he has come through for me in the clutch numerous times. One time I had an emergency working on a Sunday, and he met me at his storage and let me on his truck and we worked it out the next time he was in my area.

Here in my area the SO guys are an absolute disaster. Horrible inventory, terrible at ordering anything. You have to be after them for everything. Following up making sure they ordered your requests, and watching your invoices with vigilance because they love to f*** up prices in their favor 🙄. Also very inconsistent. Show up one week, not the next. About the only time you can count on them being here is when they are pushing one of the many goofy promos Snap On is running. Which most are useless and a scam anyway. "Buy this impact gun at 50% off! We only marked it up 150% tho!" Or the best one: "Buy this socket set at extreme markup, and get the equivalent SAE set for a deep discount" Yeah, because SAE fasteners are just totally used on everything today...

The Mac guys you can count with one hand. They are a rare sighting these days about as common as a leap year around these parts. Same goes for the Cornball reps. I have not seen one of those trucks in over a decade.
