Talking What to spend my Snap-On gift cards on

Hey everyone,
I have a $200 worth of gift cards at Snap-On. I have a decent collection of tools already (Snap-On socket wrenches, blue point sockets, SK wrenches ect. ext.) What are some of the tools you guys couldn't live without while working on your trucks or other people cars/around the house. I realize $200 is not a lot of money. So anything under that would be appreciated.

I was looking at some battery maintainers. Anyone ever use this EEBC61210, Battery Charger, Bench Top, Automatic

or this?

EEBM500, Maintainer, Battery, 6/12 Volt, 4A

Put it towards a 3/8 electric impact. I started averaging 10-15 more flagged hours per pay period when I bought mine. They are worth there weight in gold! Get the lithium ion battery one. It will go 3 days of constant use before needing to switch packs. Stick with 12 volt. It's small enough to use on everything but powerfully enough to break lug nuts loose on cars. Either that or 3/8 impact wobbly sockets, those two things IMO are the most important tools in the box. Those two things are used more than any tool I own and they make me more money than any tool I have ever had. I've got almost $100,000 in tools and my ratchets are dusty because I use that little 3/8 gun on everything. Chrome sockets got traded on the truck for impacts. Don't even own a chrome socket anymore because they break and last about a week when you use them the way I do. So I guess I recommend impact sockets, the electric impact and impact wobbly sockets. Also may suggest some mid length 3/8 impact sockets.


What would I be doing right now if I didn't have an iPhone?

My charger is a craftsman. Bought it at sears for like $130. It's nice because I can use it as a battery tender (like that for my roadrunner that never moves) has a jump start setting as well as being adjustable on the amps per hour charge rate. I would suggest looking into one of those. It about the size of a shoebox and one feature I do like is the leads are way long so you can set it on the floor and still get the clamps on the battery of a lifted truck. I'll pull the model number off of it when I get home.

Ya for battery maintainers the battery tenders are about as much as anyone needs. For a charger I use one I got at northern tool for like $30 and it works fine.

I'm no help on the snap on stuff, can't afford it and have never needed it.
