S-K set
« on: December 05, 2020, 06:18:22 AM »
Ordinary little box caught my eye at the thrift.  $3, sure, cant fill it up, as it was already full.  I did add the green handle driver, also found in the thrift shop.

You did good.  S-K doesn't get enough cred, squeezed out by flashier brands.

I guess I'm odd--I always personally thought S&K was THE name in sockets. Best Granddad had, best I have. I've thought Snap-On was always overrated, and overpriced.

I have a bit newer set--mid '80s I think. 1/4 drive, but no breaker bar.  My metric set has a proper S&K driver, but in the SAE (which was mostly incomplete), I added a Challenger that also doubles as an extension (1/4 female slot in top of handle).   

I'm really jealous of that $3 score! Great price!  S&K no longer uses those solid steel boxes. Now, they use plastic cases on which the latches break very easily. At least that's my experience with tool cases other than S&K.

SK seems to get plenty of appreciation on eBay. Everything SK seems to go for big bucks. 
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

S-K should go for good prices.
They are quality tools.
Top notch rats.  And I really like their older fat chrome sockets.
