There are so few tools that I'd buy that are Snap-On branded. Electric tools isn't one of them. Torque wrenches and ratchet drivers the other, maybe.
Yeah that might be the one. I always see a Fuel in the KMS catalog looks huge. Need to go fondle one day. And not bitch out and get 5Ah batteries. I didn't believe my coworkers M18 was 1/2" drive

Reducti doesn't Mili have a nail gun yet? I guess you want the battery compatibility.

For Black Friday Sale at CT I picked up a MC 1/2" breaker bar with a 24" handle for $10.

Snap on ratcheting screwdriver is where it's at.

4ah bats is what i run, didnt know they made 5. Ive had em for about 2 years and they never skip a beat. the half inch gun def has some weight to it, would really hurt to get hit in the head with it, not sure why you dont believe it wasnt half inch? unless he just has a half inch adapter bit in his 1/4 inch hex impact driver. Id def pick a set up if its on sale.
I dont care what that random youtube video has to say in my actual experience theyve been top shelf.

Ha Ha! Made you look.

The self locking alligator pliers are bad ass. I have had a set for 3 years and they get used daily. $100 for 3 sizes off the snap on truck. Well worth it.

From what I know, Dewalt is the only one doing a non-hybrid, cordless framing nailer… for a pretty good reason I suspect.

I just need one that offsets the cost of a couple weeks of rental however.

the mastercraft socket/wrench stuff is pretty good quality. and with the lifetime warranty it's hard to go wrong. sure some of the stuff they sell is pretty cheap shit, but they do sell some good things at a great price.

This. Though labels are important. Mastercraft Maximum is the good shit. If it only says Mastercraft, then not so much.

Been using a Gray socket set since 1986 or so, precursor CT brand with lifetime warranty. CT replaces broken sockets for me to this day.

Don't get a butane or whatever gas charged nailer. It works out to 8-10 cents per trigger pull.

West, I checked it out. M18 1/2" Impact written on it.
I do see those combo kits with a 1/4 hex driver and 1/2" drill all the time.

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

Thats what you want.. Id buy the drill driver combo with the 4A/H bats and then just buy the tool only for the half inch impact.

Ha Ha! Made you look.

According to research the Knipex wire rope cutter or the Felco (forget the model name) are the choice of the picky mechanics on the roadie pro tour.
