I paid less for a set of snap-on wrenches from 3/8-1" good grief. Maybe I need to dig around and see what I find, I think I have a hang tag that still has it's 1/2 ratchet.

I know where there is a set of black proto anti slip wrenches. About 10-24. Could probably snag for about 125.

I bet they are nice, but that's a bit more then I'm looking to spend for home use right now. My tool cart does lock and I have two sets of little hands that like to walk off with things while I'm not looking lol

I'm sure they are just devoloping a taste for fine tools and Tim will have to bring them to your shop before long. :great:

Sam has already been here and wasn't impressed but he was pretty young at the time.  You can bet I'll be patting them down after their next visit :))

I'm hoping Epsteins comes through with some Bonney's in their next couple of pallet loads. If not, maybe Protos are in my future?  O:-)

I found having a “kids only” tool box with some crap I don’t use sitting on the floor distracts the little monkeys from getting in my box.

That sounds like a great way to deal with the junk import tools that you end up with when buying used tool boxes.

I think the day is coming when we're gonna be so hard up for raw materials all the old discarded sockets and wrenches will be confiscated for their chrome and other metals.
