Has anyone had trouble w/ breaking Snap-on wrenches, I've broke 3 in the last 6 weeks. And boy, their sockets wear out to the point of being useless. I hate getting this stuff warrantied when I haven't got an open account w/ them anymore.

the only snap-on tools i can remember ever breaking or wearing out over the last 15 years have been my air ratchets....but i am so very hard on them. maybe they had a bad production lot....i would get with someone in customer service at the corporate level.

never had a problem with mine. I bought one of their new dual 80 1/4" ratchets from my dealer and it was defective(the ball was seized and wouldnt let anything attach) and he gave me a new one on the spot. Never had a problem with their sockets, but as said before it could be a bad run or something they came in contact with weakend them?.

The wrenches are long combination wrenches, they are called high performance wrenches or something like that. They are very long & the box ends are thin to get into tight spaces. I can tell when they crack at the box end, because that is what it sounds like. And I didn't use a cheater pipe.

ooo yea those. if memory serves correctly, those are not the high strength that the flank drive/flank drive plus wrenches are because of their extra thin/slim profile. I had a set of flank drive plus wrenches, traded them in for the matco pro-swing wratcheting double box wrenches which are omg by far the best wrench I have ever used
