Now that's a good one. The reason why there is a mixed up polyglot of tools in my boxes.

When I was working all my sockets up to 1/2" drive, ratchets and extensions were Snap-On. The 3/4" stuff was a mix of Craftsman, HF and Proto. End and combination wrenches were Snap-On and Craftsman. My BIG wrenches (over 1 1/4") up to 2" were HF and ATD.
When you are up in the bowels of a backhoe it don't hurt to grab a HF wrench and modify it with a torch to fit a tight spot. I had a couple wrenches with some interesting doglegs in them.

I have Craftsman, different sets. Including sockets, box end and open end wrenches in mill finish from 1944 that where my father's ins sizes to 1 1/2 inches.

I have some Mastercraft (sold by Canadian Tire) ratcheting wrenches and my own original Husky Sockets bought in 1970 when I started fixing neighbours Lawnboy mowers.

I have a Snap-On 3/8 socket set I bought in 1967. I also bought a short 3/8 ratchet that's identical to the one in the set, but 1 1/2" shorter for tight spots. These 2 ratchets have been amazingly good. Every once in a while, I take them apart and clean them and lube them. I'd be pretty upset if I lost one of them.
