Show me your Tool............

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine sent these home with me today after his ex-wife told him to get his shit out of "her" shop building. He got them in the mid-1980s from the man who'd been awarded them when was a Chrysler service tech. He said some time about 1993 I had told them they were cool and he never forgot that.

Those ratchets are good eBay fodder.

Anyone have any thoughts on this old school spot welder? Value?

Could be cool if you have the space. Not sure on value.

I passed on it. If I get one it should probably be more portable/maneuverable...

Not actually mine.  I was thinking of picking it up, but it was just a little out of the "what the hell, why not?" price point.

Own that exact set. Love them.

 

 

Tip: buy an extra 12/14 to be able to use while it's getting replaced under warranty.

 

 

Ask me how I know.

I bought mine from a tool truck vs Amazon just because I knew I would need the warranty. Going on 4 years, I have broken my 12/14 maybe 10 times. 8/10 a few.

 

I do not regret the purchase at all though. I also use them more than you will as you don't swing wrenches for pay anymore.

 

 

I use these many times throughout my day. I was hesitant buying them. Regret not buying them sooner. Go-to tool.

I will NEVER ever buy anything made and called by the STANLEY name. 3/8 ratchet fell a foot and a half off the back seat to the driveway and flew apart. Couldn't even find all the parts. Fuckin' plastic container needs a bungee cord to hold together. Can't buy just metric so half of them I threw away in a drawer. They are BLACK and get fuckin' hot laying in the sun. The 14mm spanner (actually works but has been hit wrong by the stamping press that made it. That push button release is a fuckin' pain in the ass. Have to push the button to get the socket on... need two hands to do this.

 

Took the set back (missing the shitty never used SAE ) and was offered replacements. I said as long as they aren't STANLEY brand. I told the manager I was embarrassed for him and the store that sold this worthless crap. Got a refund for more than what I paid for the set

 

 

Just like fram.... STANLEY used to have some reputation. Now cranked out in some sweat shop in China. Just absolute garbage. If you are thinking of buying anything made by STANLEY turn around.

 

Don't buy Williams, Snap-On, SuperKrome, Blue-Point, or Craftsman, either then. All made by and owned by Stanley Tool Co.

Um...no. Post your proof.

 

Snap-On, Blue Point, and Williams are all owned by Snap-On.

 

SuperKrome/SK Tools is owned by Ideal Industries.

 

I'll give you Craftsman though. Had you included MAC in your list, I'd let you have that too.

 

 

Stanley owns a lot of tool brands. But you only got one correct.
