I'm not a mechanic but the ol' man has been a automatic transmission mechanic since he got out of the service ('63) and his work tools are all snap-on, blue point, mac. I think the key is that they last longer and replacement is easier when the tool truck comes to your work.

Cheaper pliers may not have been stolen!  :smilewink:   As for electrical power tools, yes, there is a major difference for dang sure!  And with pliers just as you said.  Cheap pliers & pipe wrenches teeth will round off after a time, while the high dollar ones retain their edges.  I've got cheaper & higher end pipe wrenches, and I use cheater bars many times & have yet to break one, but I'd say I've been lucky. 

Sad part Danial I know who took them but ........ lesson learned, he hasn't gotten any work from me in over 10+ years :bigrofl:

I only have Rigid pipe wrenches 6" thru 4' in steel,

but now as I get older they are mostly the backups to the Rigid aluminum ones :thumbs: 

P.S. on the cheater I have 2" pipe about six feet long , if that doesn't work time for the torch or saw-all :D

Ridgid electric power tools are great tools as well.  I have a Ridgid cordless drill, and an impact cordless driver as well.
