    Just how much $ was that?

    I just looked online. This is the approximate equivalent to the Craftsman I have:

    Nearly 4x as much $. I know most Snap On stuff is first rate, but

    You can always go on eBay and get it half that price, but if you're not going to use it at least once a week, its not even worth it.

    Snap-On tools are basically made for techs/mechanics. Not people who wrench on rides here and there. If your gonna plan to use it all the time, not worth paying 257 dollars. Craftsman is just as good, for what he needs. I agree with you.

    If you get a Snap-on, it'll still work long after you're dead. You can count on passing it down to your son...

    well the 3/8" torque wrench goes for around $235 and the 1/2" goes for around $265....But the good thing for me is i get a discount through my school (UTI)...I only paid $143 for the 3/8" and $158 for the 1/2"...being a technician i guess has its benefits.
