    Bought a Husky socket set in 1968...still have parts of it I believe. My dad was a diesel mechanic, got his tools when he died, so I have lots...all brands, many very old. He brought a few of them over from England in 1954.

    Just changed out my Craftsman 26" tool box for a US General (Harbor Freight) 42" with 16" extension. For the price the General is great for a DIY mechanic.

    Mostly Craftsman with a few Kobalt scattered about.

    I got a good deal on a bigger mechanic toolbox from Sears on Father's Day. They were upgrading the sockets to "etched" sockets and selling all the regular stamped sets for cheap. I also buy what I need from Harbor Freight like snap ring pliers, deep air sockets ect, with there 20% off coupons.
