shoulda got the original Vise Grips before they started making them in China... when i heard about it i ran out that same day and bought me a pair before they shut down the factory. Still says Made In USA with international parts... all 7 of them i'm guessing.

Is Wade your dealer? Because I tend to have the same problem with him. In fact I think he doesn't want my money since he hasn't shown up in over a month! I've been buying from matco lately just because of the much better customer service.

Are they using their extensions as punches or something? Only one of my snap on tools has broken on me, and it wasn't even me using it, I lent it and got it back broken. It was a pry bar with a notched tip, great for removing heavy truck shoe springs. My co worker used it as a regular pry bar, there's an example of an improperly used tool. And because my dealer never shows up, I've been stuck with it for over a month with no chance to exchange it! I bet when he shows up he won't have it on stock so I guess I'll get my new pry bar sometime this summer if lucky.

Hahaha, I was thinking the same thing. But then again, I use mines as punches sometimes. Hehehe. Only thing is, mines never break or give me problems of any sort. The only ones I hated was the impact driver bits. They finally came up with one strictly for Honda's and Mazda's with the countersunk screw that holds the rotors and drums. Only took them 20 years. Hahaha

I used to deal with Wade before. Never really had a problem with him before. Hmm. Got me wondering about him now.

I broke a whole bunch on those screws. But they finally made one that is a perfect fit and is strong enough.

nice box!!! but i think you should have gone bigger! tools fill up the box real fast!!!! especially all these damn specialty tools and their cases....i think tool makers do that on purpose to fill up the boxes faster....then its just wasted money as your selling your old box for way less to upgrade to a bigger box...

the only thing other is colored boxes will make it harder to find buyers if you ever do need to sell it.. also buying add ons to the box now make it impossible due to the fact that you have to match the color...and youll basically have to buy "new" items to make the box bigger...
