I'm at my shop, let's have some fun with wrenches. Ace wrenches like to bend. I bent this rebuilding a HD Shovehead. I have no recollection of what I paid for this set but knowing me it was probably on sale. I regret buying them. Here is a MAC and MAC's budget brand called "Expert". Side view of MAC and Expert. Again, $28 wrench vs $12 wrench. Here is a Snap-On vs Craftsman. Throat diameter makes all the difference in the world, especially if the bolt/nut is wore. That Snap on wrenche is maybe 20 years old. The Craftsman was a gift set about 5 years ago maybe? I own just about every brand it seems. If you can get older vintage S-K brand sockets they are absolutely awesome. The were sold in green tin boxes. One set of good wrenches, lifetime type tools, I'd say Snap On over MAC or Matco. If you are on a budget but still want wrenches with tight tolerances I would go with Bluepoint or Expert. They cost half and are still lifetime. Tolerances are very important. Over time, assuming you use tools, the throats open up on the cheap stuff as i indicated in the photos. I measured those with a Brown & Sharpe dial caliper and it is very accurate.
