Blue Point are great quality at a decent price and good warranty.

Every bit as good as a snap on box for probably $20k less. ICON is going to wake up the tool trucks and HF is getting into the financing game too this year.



I was playing with a Demo/Floor ICON tool box just the other day.....I couldn't get the top "wide" drawer to act right no matter how I adjusted the detents. The drawer would not pull from only one end. I had to pull from the center & even then it required to much force.

Not that I'm in love with the Snap-on "Lock & Roll" plastic slider thing & the EPIQ boxes are even more stupidly priced than the Masters Series, HF should have copied the EPIQ latch style drawer release.

Agree.....I have a Metric & Standard set of Taiwan made reversible Blue Point ratcheting wrenches. As I bought them with a used Roll Cart they were pretty much free, I beat the snot out of them. Haven't had to warranty any so far.

From about 2006-2010....Snap-on forged a lot of tools that didn't have USA cast in them, Even though they were in fact forged in the USA. This got the internet rumor mill going & these tools can be picked up cheap.

Williams has them also with a flex head, made in Taiwan so I am guessing they are the same as Blue Point. Abalox has them in all the single sizes but I didn't see a set.

I have a couple sets of GearWrench ratcheting combination wrenches. I mostly use them on my vintage Lawn Boys, but also used a couple sizes replacing the rear suspension on my mother-in-law’s car. They work just fine for me. My local Rural King has them in 5 wrench packs for $20 SAE or metric.

I have a couple sets of GearWrench, and a set of Stanleys from walmart. I have never had a failure, but the stanleys feel better made. I do like how easily the GearWrench units "ratchet" which is nice when a fastener turns very easily, and I don't have to put my finger on it to get it to work.
