I am a tool lover,I believe you can never have enough tools and if you use a tool once, its paid for itself.95% of my stuff is snap on,and I have no complaints at all,but I own alot of mac and craftsman also and I love them too.snap on is very expensive but is in my opinion is a topshelf tool.I guess what i am trying to say is that I love tools!

Not if you use them every day professionally. What is comfortable using on a hobby infrequently is nothing as compared to using them to make money.

Frequent trips to SEARS just doesn't make it on piece work...

I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

Also older FORD Special Service Tools

All I can say is that I thought Craftsman made good screwdrivers and wrenches until I got a job where I was using them everyday ALL day. Snap-On absolutely makes the best screwdrivers and wrenches. Yes they are expensive but IMHO, worth it. I don't have all snap-on but a mixture of brands that I have found work well. When one brand stops working or is not getting the job done, I look to another. I also got tired of breaking Craftsman pliers. The wire cutters were the worst. After the third pair, I finally gave-in and bought the snap-on ones. I'm still using them and they have held up great.
Just my $.02

CRAFTSMAN screwdrivers I never did like because of the slick plastic handles. They were hard to keep a tight grip on with greasy hands and if you tightened your grip, they always dug into your hand.

I always had the MAC's with the wooden handles and they were much more comfortable. But they stopped making them and went to plastic which I found comfortable.

I buy Snap-On, and I live in England so you can guess the prices But they are worth it. I use to work on WRC cars all over Europe, an at all the events there was a Snap-On truck ready to change any Snap-On tools that failed (not very often) without question, no matter how they got used!! When you earn your living with them they are worth it.

You get what you pay for! Ive got a 2002 Snap-On Firebird Anniversary Box (waiting for the 2004 Mustang box to come out) full of Snap-on, Mac, and Matco. No complaints with any of the tools at all.
