    Yeah, they'd go close, and the added bonus of lifetime warranty mean you can walk into any Repco store and get them replaced without a receipt cause they've got Repco stamped in them...

    Repco tools are generally good. If you're building a kit then they're a good starter brand.
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?

    I have owned a set of repco sockets(3/8-1/4 drive) since 98 and never broke one or had any problems with them, as good as anything on the market IMO. It is not like you need strap-on tools to work on your hachi in the back yard.

    repco are great!!

    sidchrome have gone down hill since they started making them overseas. Kingchrome are awesome and so are SnapOn but u need some serious cash.

    so yea, as for repco i bought a standard socket set and have been using them on a rattle gun ( havent got around to getting impact sockets), and they are still going strong after a year of abuse!!

    ALL DRIFT MODIFICATIONS
    See the sponsors section 4 details!!

    Kincrome is expensive? i always thought it was cheap entry-level stuff. I'm looking at getting some repco stuff for home, my good tools have less chance of getting stolen at work anyway. I've used old sidchrome stuff and i've used new, and the old stuff shits on the new. One of the senior techs at work has had the same sidchrome kit for 40 years and swears by it. So unless your dad or relative has an original set I wouldn't bother.
