Wtf!?! I didnt know that.
When i did work experience, the mechanics were having a discussion with the Snap On dealer bloke that came down once a week, and the prices for the parts were MENTAL!
They were like £300 for a wheel nut gun...and apparently one of them had to get their previous gun repaired twice, and it broke again for the third time...
Premium Snap On gear is mentally expensive (you can spend a couple of grand on a cabinet, before you even put any tools in it), but superb quality (backed up by a lifetime replacement guarantee - if you break it you get a new one, even if you broke it by being a dick and abusing it). It's gear for professionals who use it all day every day to make their living (and total overkill for home mechanics). The Bluepoint range is their cheaper line (but still good gear) - that's the range the Halfords Pro gear is equivalent to.
