I just bought 2 new Snap on electronic - digital display torque wrenches , 3/8 and 1/2 drive . I got good money for my " clickers " , so I splurged . They have buzzers, vibrators and staging lights built in . They work pretty well ( I was reluctant at first ) but I can send them back for free calibration for quite awhile . We still have 9 others , all snap on in various sizes and forms, except my 3/4 drive 600 ft/lb that came from the US military . I got it in a lot I purchased on EBAY from California . I sold the rest of the lot and ended up with
200.00 profit and kept the big wrench .
When you use them everyday and can't screw around with reliability or accuracy Ya' gotta have good tools .

I used to build 3 to 4 engines a day, some were stock 350's and then there were some huge money, number matching, 426 hemi's and 454 LS6's that absolutely needed to be accurate. We didn't use snap-on, I forget what brand the shop had, but just because it's not snap on doesn't mean it can't be accurate.

My personal torque wrenches are SK.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with snap on, other than their price

I use Snap on for these and certain other tools because they about the only truck dealers around our area . As far as the tools go I just rite them off yearly and it's built into our hourly labor rate . Anything after that is gravy , so if they last fine , if not their scrapped out .
Also I absolutely HATE shopping , shopping centers and I don't have the time or patience for the b*******t
shopping crowd . My wife doesn't even mention it , I just hand her a wad and away she goes .
I would rather eat salty crackers in the middle of a desert while working on a 6.0 than go shopping , even for
tools .

Had those amp mt's mounted today. They balanced up nice, no shake. They sound similar to my toyos, but every MT is going to have some road noise. We'll see what kind of mileage we get out of these. I got about 40k to the take off of the toyos. But at 1100 compared to 1800. Can almost buy 2 sets of these for 1 of the toyos

Because m/t's is where it's at. I never got more than 20k on my 7.3 with the Toyo's. I have 40's on the 03 but since it's never driven they will last year's.

I did the 4' pipe trick on a Craftsman 1/2 " J bar one time . It spit the yoke like a Dodge truck at a truck pull . I took it in to buy a new one and they warrantied it . I described to the clerk what I had done and
he said no problem . We don't have sears or Craftsman up here anymore , too bad , I liked their tools .

Who distributes the Gearwrench line ? I don't think we have them up here .
