Love Milwaukee stuff and the shop was purely Milwaukee until I got tired of figuring out where guys left them and decided to buy a set of snap on electric tools that stays in my box (mainly just wanted a different brand to differentiate them). Gotta say, while Milwaukee is very good, Snap On is still superior. I know Snap On is pricey but if you’re patient you can accumulate a good set of tools between buy one/get one sales that they have on the truck and scouring kijiji or eBay. There are other good ‘lesser’ brands like Proto or Gear Wrench but every time I price them the difference just isn’t enough, especially if you’re comparing to blue point. To me having the truck stop by once or even every two months is worth the premium, the service on getting stuff warrantied is so much nicer than having to drive to town and fenagle with a teenager at Canadian tire or princess auto. Also have my snap on guys cell number so anytime I need something, all I gotta do is send him a text and he takes care of it. Hard to beat that IMO. I do still buy plenty of cheap stuff (although you should still buy the ‘higher quality’ of the cheap stuff like Pro-Point or Masters series Mastercraft), particularly tools that are for the group to use or the service truck, but for my personal tools you just can’t beat quality stuff. Will echo that stuff like wrenches (particularly flank drive plus), ratchets, sockets, screwdrivers, electrical tools, hammers and pliers are where I’d concentrate getting high quality. And bars, no 1 thing I’d buy from snap on if you can are the bars.
I bought my box off kijiji and it was virtually unused and ended up less than half of what it would cost off the truck. Had to be patient tho and when the box popped up you can’t dilly dally, go get it right away with cash in hand.
