    Matco, snap-on, and cornwell, they might be expensive but when you make your living with them cost is not a factor in my mind, and no not all tools are created equal.

    I make my living with my tools. So most of it is Snap-On. Lot of Matco. Can't even find a Mac or Cornwell truck in Houston anymore. I do have some Craftsman stuff at the house too.
