Pittsburgh Pro tools vs Craftsman?
Want to preface this by saying that I am in no way a pro mechanic, just someone who's looking to start doing work on their own car. First step are some tools. I've been looking up all kinds of different brands. Top of the line brands like Snap On are out of my price range and honestly are probably more tool than I'll ever need, at least for now. I've read some positive things about the Pittsburgh Pro line from Harbor Freight, and from what I've seen Craftsman seem like a safe bet, especially given the lifetime guarantee. I'd like your opinions. What do you think of these different tool brands? What would you recommend for someone who's looking to start a tool collection, with a focus on auto work? Thank you all for your time! Thank you for your answer, Hank. I actually am reasonably close to a few Harbor Freight stores, if that changes anything.
