Re: who makes better sockets

Either will last more than a lifetime. Williams USA is also another industrial brand option (look for the sets that the Part # starts with letters, the all numbers are Taiwan made).

Re: Gearwrench flex vs armstrong flex

Get the best of both worlds. Armstrong locking flex and throw a 84T Gearwrench kit into it.:D

I actually do prefer the feel of the 84T Gearwrench over the 88T Matco I had.

Re: The Truck Tool Equivalents Thread 2.0 - Expanded with Part Numbers

Re: Air Ratchets, how useful?

I use my 1/4" Cornwell whenever I can. I usually use it with a 3/8" adapter. Love my 3/8" M12, but don't get to use it as much as I'd like.

Re: Gearwrench Roto Ratchets

Got this for each of them. Too bad, I've really been wanting a set, and missed out when they were going on sale regularly a couple of years back.
