I agree with Phil. I have two impacts. The cheapie that gets used all the
time and tossed around. And the good expensive one that gets used when
I need more "impact". It gets a reserved spot in my tool chest..

I also agree with this. The cheap "Vice-grips" aren't worth the pot metal
made of. I've also thrown a couple away...
But I do use Craftsman tools (and lately a few Husky) instead of Snap-On.
My tools don't have to be the Highest quality, but they still have to be good
