My modest Snap-On collection.
I searched for "tools" in titles, but got mostly spam results, so I thought I'd start a new thread.
Working on cars requires a decent set of tools, and I frequently find myself adding to my collection - never start a project you can't get some new tools out of
I hope others will chime in with their pics and stories.
In trying to build up a 2nd set of sockets, for carrying in my truck and/or taking to the pull-a-part, I've been taking inventory of what I have, making sure I only buy what's needed. In doing so, on the side, I gathered up all my Snap-Ons and took a pic.
These are all hand-me-downs from my dad, his brother, and their uncle. I assure you, I can't really afford to buy Snap-Ons
There are only two items in the set less than 45 years old - the 3/8" ratchet (near the top) and the 1/4" ratchet. The 3/8" I got as a warranty swap in the St Louis office over 20 years ago. It's nearly identical to the original other than having the added locking feature.
I'm not sure where the 1/4" ratchet came from, but I hope something will jog my memory one of these days.
The ratchet adapter, far right, does not get much use, mainly 'cause I never think about it. But having been thru this exercise, I expect to start using it some.
I use the Snap-Ons often enough in my garage, but, while they're good tools, I have many other brands I am very satisfied with as well.
Lastly, I saw the bottom pic on Facebook and just had to share - it seems to express the feelings some gearheads have about Snap-On
