I never understood the need for expensive tools. I've worked in the coal mines for the last 13 years. Heavy machinery, rusty stuff, and highly abused tools. 90% of the tools used are Wright, and the other 10% is made up of proto, and craftsman stuff.
I've never been on a repair job and went "if I only had snap on tools I could make this work"
What are you breaking so frequently that you feel the need to go in debt for tools?
I have a cresent tool box thing that has 1/4,3/8, 1/2 metric and standard in it, and that tool kit has been used on just about every tractor restore, or automotive repair I've done in the last 10 years. The only reason I frequently grab it is because its all together in one nice box.
