Are Husky sockets any good?

The Husky 268 piece is the best toolset to go for if you are looking for durable, good-looking and affordable tools for home or businesses. The fact that they come in a strong, durable plastic case makes it hard to lose any tool and organization is made easy.

Likewise, people ask, are Husky mechanic tools good?

Husky Mechanic Tool Set Review Value For the variety of sockets and the quality of the ratchet, it's a pretty good value. You can find sets for less money, but usually, that means less quality.

Secondly, which brand is better Kobalt or husky? Husky is supposedly better than the current Kobalt line, but I'm not wild about either one. Those are good prices for what you are getting, though. Husky is generally kinda meh, in my opinion, but Kobalt is pretty high quality. I've seen some of their tools that you can tell are junk or just a bad design.

Consequently, are Husky tools guaranteed for life?

All Husky hand tools have a lifetime warranty. In the past, Home Depot had a program offering consumers an exchange of their broken Sears Craftsman or other brand of hand tool for a comparable Husky tool at no charge. This program has since been discontinued.

Are old snap on tools worth anything?

Generally, the tools that still have a function (sockets, ratchets and wrenches) have a value. Generally tools in sets are more desired than a single tool. So an old 1950s socket set has value, a 1950 headlight beam focus tool does not. The more valuable Snap on tools are pre WWII.

Are Kobalt Tools better than craftsman?

Socket differences: If it's about sockets quality, however, Kobalt win. The socket retention system (detents) they use is superior to Craftsman. Detents match better and allow for easier, more convenient operation. Ratchet differences: Craftsman thin-profile ratchets are a winner.

Are snap on ratchets worth it?

Ratchets are one of the places that Snap On is absolutely worth it. This and line wrenches. Snap on is great if you are a pro, because the truck rolls to the shop, you give them your broken stuff and they replace it, and they have any new stuff you might need. You pay a premium for that kind of service though.

What makes snap on tools so good?

Snap-on tools have a nice "feel" to them. Just like anything else, you can buy a lesser brand that will do quite well and get the job done but if you have to work with hand tools all day for a living most pro's will use Snap-on. They are easier to use and things like the handles don't rip your hands up.

Is Kobalt made in China?

Sadly both Craftsman and Kobalt have recently started to sell Danaher tools made overseas, with Kobalt being mainly made in Taiwan this year and Craftsman slowly but surely going over to mainly made in China Danaher products for the past few years.

Is Kobalt a good brand?

Both their high end craftsman pros, also the wrenches are very good as well in their pro line. Especially the made in the USA ones. But their base wrenches the raise panel are good quality, made in the USA and dependable. Their mid level and high end ratchets are good, but their base ratchet is not that great.
