    Do not get that Autobarn Garage Tuff jack.

    Had mine for about 14 months now, and the seals in the ram have blown. Just out of the 12 month warranty period.

    I definitely recommend the Blue Point stuff, never had a problem with it at work and its been trouble free for 4 years now...I obtain most of that stuff from the Snap-On van. Glenfords In Salcks Creek QLD is also an awesome place to obtain tools, great service (unlike Tradetools) and good after purchase support ie. warranty

    Repco, although not owned by me, is worth its weight in the garage, great stuff at a good price

    Knipex make THE BEST plier range on the planet, I have been using my grandfathers set which have served him well...and me...

    Snap-On impact driver bits and impact sockets are CRAP...have had to many break and the warranty is good but who wants to replace it and wait all the time...
