I never understood why so many mechanics are a slave to the Snap-on truck (like the guy you got the deal from) making payment after payment on basically overpriced stuff. Sure the hand tools are quality, but so are other brands for less. The other stuff they sell, even the rebranded stuff, is overpriced. I would never pay their price on tool boxes when a HF box is darn near as good for so much less. It just holds tools. With that, I do own a lot of Snap on - but paid as I could cash. I recommend any new mechanic to shop value and get a full set of tools be it Pittsburg, Craftsman or even used Snap on etc and build as they grow...and make more money! Don't finance a whole Snap on set!
Nice! It sucks you are in the business so long you have to replace tools because they are work out of just outdated. In the same situation myself at almost 62.
Yep.....Like the thousands I have in SAE tools that I have stacked in my storage container! Probably need to sell some of it. When a tool gives me 20-30 years of good service, I don't cry Warranty! That crap has effect on prices of premium tools. The exception being Ratchet rebuilds & Bit Drivers....Must have broken hundreds of T40 bits in the last 20 years swapping LSx camshafts.
CLine Good looking rig. I’ve wanted about the same box with no lid. What do you suppose that box costs new today? Goes good with the new shop!
Thanks P10! A new KRSC46 retails for around $1,900, Can get one for around $1,600 on a cash deal off the truck.
