  3. I have the Halfords Pro series which is good quality but what you posted isn't and it isn't. Although I hate to agree with Mr B, Snap On. Andy

  6. Why the :poop: @OMG ? A sliding drawer is a sliding drawer, surely, as long as they hold the tool trays.

  7. I got the Halfords pro ones on special and the with the discount card even more cheaperer... had em over a year now and still think I'm a fully qualified mechanic every time I open em...
    Obviously snap on is better for possing with but I've let myself go of late so it's not a factor anymore...

  10. When the company I work for had money we used snap-on and they are good quality tools. Now the company has no money we use Stahwillie they are terrible fatigue inducing crap that break a lot.
    For my contracting stuff I bought Halfords Advance and I place them up there with snap-on at a fraction of the price. If you are using them as garage tools for private use you will be able to pass them down from generation to generation. :joy:

  11. It's dead simple. Snap On is far superior from a quality point of view, but much much more expensive. You get what you pay for and all that.

    If your a garage enthusiast then I'd say Halfords stuff is perfectly adequate. However, if I was bordering on pro and tearing down engines regularly, Snap On all the way. It's good stuff. I've still managed to split Snap On sockets at work though. But Halfords stuff is marzipan by comparison.
     
  12. Blue point?

    A compromise between the two.
     
  13. I think Snap On own Blue Point. Blue Point is Portuguese for Snap On. Probably...
     
  14. buy shit buy twice..

  15. A lot of truth in that. But as I said, Halfords stuff is adequate for the home garage dwelling enthusiast.
