Snap on (snapped off) - tool quality?

Local NAPA is running an oil sale tomorrow with the added attraction of a tool truck.

 

Evercraft is the NAPA brand now. I sure hope that's not an Evercraft truck.

I needed an 8MM brake bleeder wrench last summer and ordered one through NAPA. I am laughing as I write thinking about the absolute poor quality. It's in my brake tool drawer with a few Snap Ons, but I don't think I could do my snob look with the Evercraft sitting next to them.

How about "tools I don't know why I have."

My mother gave me one of those for birthday one year. If I've ever used it I don't remember it. Looks like something you could damage yourself with.

 

It was the NAPA tool truck. The brand I saw in there was NAPA Carlyle. Picked up a neat wire terminal crimper. Smaller than the ones I have and should be able to get in tight spots easier than my big Klein and Gardner-Bender.

 

And the great thing... a 13 year old boy was in there with his grandpa getting his first socket set!👨‍🔧👍

I remember my dad had bought a Craftsman version of that at Sears. He, or we, used it very little. It would fit something like anything from 3/8 to 3/4, all in a single wrench, metric or standard.

Yes it fits 3/8-13/16....badly.


Dont worry, if you mechanic is using that tool, he doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of fixing the car.

I took a SO test gauge that stopped working and the SO guy said it would have to be sent back to the factory for replacement. That was a couple years ago, factory still has it.  I have had SO open end wrenches break. I will stick with Craftsman and SK.

Sounds like you don't have a very good tool jobber. Two years on a repair like that is unacceptable. It's past time to bend his ear or put even more pressure on him to get it back to you, repaired properly, or replace it with new.

A couple YEARS ????!!!!!

 

A couple days, yeah, sure, O.K.

”     “        weeks.  “        “   , well, maybe.

”     “        months : something very WRONG here.

 

Did you say YEARS ? Or did you mean to say MONTHS, but mistakenly hit the years button instead while typing ?    -   CC
