Ok so we all have tools, alot of tools so what is the most you payed for the smallest tool and which one do use use the least.

A couple of months ago I bought one of those lugnut socket sets from the snap on truck, It has two sockets and an extension in the kit. It costed me $ 70.00 US.

I also have a GM oil presure sending unit socket I have only used it once but every one borrows it.

For it`s size, probably the most expensive tool I have bought is a Snap On 1/4" drive impact universal joint.It was almost $50.00 Canadian,& I would never adapt it up to my 1/2" impact gun , but for working in tight quarters, it is extremly handy.Same with my 1/4" drive air ratchet.Now that I have these, I couldn`t do without them.

I never paid for a **** in my life!

Just before Christmas I bought a Craftsman 1/4 universal and I was surprised that it was almost as expensive as a 1/4" drive Craftsman ratchet I bought a little while ago.

I paid almost $200 for a ratcheting set of combination wrenches off the SnapOn truck... they are versatile, I can't break 'em, but jeez, two bills?

Also paid $200 for a punch set off of the same truck... ouch.

$45 for a Bosch injector socket (GM diesel)

On the other side of that coin...

Paid $40 (on sale) for a sandblast pot from Harbor Freight... a bit primitave, but worth every penny.

$225 for a C.H. 25 gal. 5 hp air compressor, tricked it out with my own cooling coils, and the thing kicks a**
