    The boxes and the ratchets look ok but what the fug is up with the price? I can get a cheaper set up from the snap off tool truck.

    Torque wrench sucks. Snapped the pawls off second use. Prices are pretty crazy.

    The wrenches and stuff I see looked good as did sockets.

    I'm no pro wrencher and don't do it for money but I do use these tools a lot and for repairs on one of my four vehicles, tractor, multiple mowers, boats etc. I am always working on something. I just use the normal Pittsburgh stuff. I am pretty pleased with it. For my use I can't complain. No way I would spend that kind of money in tools.

    I break the Pittsburgh stuff and just take it in and get new stuff. That said all that I have busted was a rubber face off a dead blow, which was my issue really. I was beating something really hard with it and the metal cut the face multiple times till it fell out. Also I had a ratchet that would not switch directions very well. So I swapped it with one that switched easier. Knock on wood I have not busted a wrench or socket yet.
