Well I can say it's definitely wobblier than what I used at the shop when wrenching, but for what I need it's perfectly fine. Unloading the crate it came in by myself was however quite a challenge, I strongly suggest it to be a 2 man job.

I would agree, and if the tools are making you money best to get the ones with the least chance of letting you down.

I've got a big Beta 8 drawer chest with the button open system and all the molded tool trays. Finally lets me be organized and maybe not lose a 10mm. Overkill is fun

If you've got toolbox that prevents 10mm wrenches and sockets from disappearing I'd call it magic!


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

LOL when I go to sears I tend to buy extra 10MM sockets. Sometimes I wonder if that is what they built all of Japan with 10mm bolts.

I think the quality of the tools don't make up for the price difference. I've been using Craftsman for a very long time and I've probably had less than a half dozen tools break. I've never had a socket break, though. Snap-On is so bloody expensive, I know guys that spent more on their box and tools than my last 5 motorcycle purchases put together.

I just lost my 10mm wrench from my set 3 weeks ago. I had a backup in a set I don't use anymore and pulled the 10mm from it into my current set. I am glad it isn't just me.
I haven't lost a 10mm socket yet, but I am sure that will come someday.

Had mines since 2013. Serves me well. I can see how if it was a heavy use shop lift it would fail....but for the average home mechanic...its a gift from god. I do more work now that I do not have to hunch over the floor.

I did put a professional clamp on it. Id buy another one for sure.
