i happen to know a construction co in central florida that, for the time being, is having the bulk of their maint and repairs done by them 'chitty' tools by someone who don't know better. ;)
working out go so far.
economy is so bad we can't go out and buy 17000$ of new tools to keep the operation running.. so a few hundred of HF had been doing good. ;)
I like the warranty ont he hand tools as well. same as craftsman.. no question asked... though i havn't had to use that warranty yet. :)
I'm actually glad I'm not a real mechanic. I'd be broke. I've seen what the matco and snapon delaers used to charge our mechanic before he moved. scarry prices. :) I have a healthy respect for real mechanics.
