    stronger then snap on. broke a snap off 3/8, sp motorsport 3/8, me jumping up and down on it and it's still working sweet, i weigh 92kg's
    can i ask why you're jumping up and down on a 3/8 ratchet?
    one thing ive noticed after being in the mechanical trade for over 10 years is that 90% of the time tools tend to break when they are misused

    i use Snap On tools 90% of the time at work and only issues I've had are when i have done something i shouldn't have.

    Using a 3/8 swivel head snap on ratchet to undo wheel nuts is always going to end in something breaking.

    Or using a screw driver as a pry bar or chisel

    or using non impact sockets on impact guns

    Supatool - Managed to crack a 19mm socket while using a 1m long breaker bar lol

    Nicholson - Many of their tools have failed during use. Don't ever go there

    On the upside I picked up a brand new 32pc Sidchrome socket set for $107 posted from ebay the other week. Claiming tools on tax ftw!

    whats a good cordless impact wrench for use for trackdays etc? I was gonna buy the ryobi one, but then Id need batteries and a charger, and it would end up costing me over $300 for something I wouldn't be using much - I'm not taking wheels on and off once a week

    Wheel bolts are done up to 100-110Nm yeah? There one on eBay rated to 120Nm, with 2 batteries, 2 warrantee and its only $120 plus postage.

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/18-VOLT-CORDL...AU_Power_Tools

    It wont be the best, but OK for occassional use? Trackdays, changing brakes etc?

    You pay for what you get with tools, for that price it's probly garbage.
    Snap on are good, CP make a good one that's a bit cheaper than the snap on one...

    oh yeah def, for thigns such as screwdrivers, spanners, socket sets, i only get good stuff, but Im thinking for stuff to be used very rarely cheap should be OK? I bought a heat gun from Aldi once, and it was awesome, for example

    aldi is weird.. they have cheep and cheerful stuff lol

    my old work bought a shinano impact gun rated to 1100nm, cost around 1k

    the 10year old SP rattle gun rated to 800nm had more grunt, even though it says 120nm.. it won't do it.
    go for a lithium ion battery powered snap on, milwakee or some other big brand name, try it before you buy it too...

    I didn't know aldi sold tools? (not that i've been in one.) I thought they were like an IGA or something just sold like breadrolls, sausages, foods etc (supermarket gear)

    I'll have to suss one out.

    I too have some FORCE tools from Trade Tools and they taken a pounding- nothing broken. Very reasonable price to. Eying out their 18v rattle gun, specs looks the good.
