Item(s) Description/Condition:
I bought the torque wrenches from the snap on truck last year and have never used them. The only reason I would say they are not brand new is because I engraved my initials into the side of the head to avoid sticky fingers that tend to come around from time to time. Other than that they are brand new, have NEVER torque a nut or bolt aside from being calibrated. Come with case and original paperwork.

The panel kit is brand new in original packaging. Blue Point, good quality.
This kit is sick, I have 2 of them so I decided to get sell the new one. I love this kit, nice balance of stiffness and rigidity. Nicely shaped to get stubborn panels off. If you do allot of installs and arenít using something like this you have to try it, you will love em.

I need a good set of ratchets, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch. And a good set of Philips screwdrivers.

I've got an eD Nine.4 and Nine.1, also lots of install stuff, let me know what you would need, I've got too much to list.

I could make you a very happy man in Summer, if you still plan on doing this tools-for-audio thing then.

Snap on is used by the professional mechanic, it’s obvious that you don’t know the difference between decent tools and professional grade.

I have a bunch of ratchets in all sizes, I will pm you when I get home with what I have. Im mainly looking for stuff that I can sell somewhat quickly locally so I can purchase my new substage.

FYI, I wouldnt spend the kind of money on screwdrivers that Snap On charges. That's the one item I dont buy from Snap On because I lose screwdrivers to often. I usually buy the Craftsman professionals because they are half the price and perform just as well. Its up to you though, if you have something I want I will get you some Snap On's if you want.

plz enlighten me

When you use hand tools as a part of your profession you begin to notice what top quality is and what isn’t. Let’s use an open end wrench for example... When you pick up a Snap On wrench and then pick up a Craftsman, even the rookie will notice obvious quality differences. The weight, finish and rigidity of the metals is much different, if you were to take both wrenches and bury them in the dirt in your back yard for 10 years I’m willing to bet the Snap On will look much better. The Snap On will be much more rigid as well, you do not want the open end of a wrench to flex under heavy load because you run the risk of slipping off the nut or bolt and busting your knuckles. You also risk stripping or rounding off the nut or bolt. The Snap On will be much more ergonomically friendly, that might not make a difference to the weekend warrior but if you use your tools on a daily basis it makes a huge difference. I have actually bruised and slightly cut my hand with Craftsman wrenches, they are much sharper than they appear.

I would not pitch just any Snap On hand tool to someone that would use them once in a while, you just cannot justify spending 5 times the amount on Snap On compared to what Craftsman would cost you. When it comes to a torque wrench it is a different story, the accuracy and quality is important in something like a torque wrench. If you ever build a motor with aluminum heads you want your torque specs to be accurate, if they are not properly torque you can warp them. A decent set of Chevy small block aluminum heads would run you like $1200, I wouldn’t trust a Taiwan built torque wrench with that.

Anyway, hoped this help enlighten you a bit.

It is like a crack habbit, you cannot go into a snap on truck without trying to overcome the temptation. The bad thing is, the temptation always wins. I thought I was going to owe Snap On money for the rest of my life but I have them paid off currently.
