They don't offer special discounts, you just need to keep an eye on their sales. I've bought some really nice stuff at good sale prices.

true, I was referring to the majority of their hand tools. I think a single company also makes double box end ratcheting wrenches for all the tool brands too.

ingersoll rand makes most of the air tools....most are just rebadged.

Now hand tools like sockets, wrenches, pry bars, ratchets, extensions, etc. are made individually

There is alot of Chinese stuff in the stores & catalog, similar to Harbor Freight, but there are some great values there. If you know the diff between Snap-On and Chinese, you can really stretch a dollar to fill up the vacant drawer in your tool chest. My last large tool purchase was Northern in Houston. Wheel dollies, furniture dolly (for rolling the engine/tranny around), shop rags & jackstands were particular prizes of my last spree. Candy store with a little coke sprinkled on, VERY addictive.

Hell all my tools are Northern, Harbor Freight, Craftsman, Snap-On, Matco, & Etc. You know what the only difference is in the tools??? Just the damn warranty. The only reason I buy Snap or a more expensive brand is if they make something the cheaper brands don't make for example, Cordless Testlight. I abuse the crap out of my tools too because I work in Diesel. Don't ever feel hesitant to buy cheap tools because if you break them, who cares. Your only out a few bucks & plus most hand tools are lifetime warranty irregardless of the brand. I got at least $8000 invested in tools excluding my $4000 matco box, you can't tell me anything about using a cheap tool. Except for a cheap electric drill & a Digital Multi-Meter, real mechanics know what i mean.
