You are basing this on?

No, it's not made in china, however, Craftsman, Snap-on, and many other respected tool names are. That matters how?

Historically. I've always been a believer in [and a sucker for ] top notch tools of all kinds.
But I must confess to having a few doubts these days. Reasonable quality and perfectly functional tools are now so cheap that it doesn't really matter how long the bloody things last.

Uh, no. Every snap on tool I own, and I own hundreds, says made in USA.

Blue-Point tools are rebranded and are might be made in China. I am not aware of any Snap-On stuff that is made in China.

Blue Point sucks, especially their multimeters. When I used to calibrate electronic test equipment, those Blue Point hand held multimeters would never hold their accuracy (and they were brand new )

Then as a sponsor, he should know not to post this kind of stuff in an E46 forum (unless, of course, these tools are specially designed for e46). There is a forum dedicated to site sponsors; he should use that.

That is why there is a dedicated forum for it. I don't see all the other sponsors spamming us.

Then I guess the guy in Taiwan with the Snap-On shirt talking to the Taiwan vendor about tools that they needed to order for their next year's catalog was a figment of my imagination.

Or the fact that this same vendor offered me a slightly lower price if I bought tools from him that didn't have the Snap-On logo but were in fact Snap-On.

BTW - It said Made in the USA for a long time on Craftsman tools too.

Hey "sparky" to use another person's term, don't be too hurt. The other sponsors don't care at all about your business. We at least do. So, the occassional thread DOES pop up. It's called discerning "clickery" - if it's not something that didn't interest you in the first place, you wouldn't have clicked.

To the others, thanks for looking.

I don't care what you claim to have seen in Taiwan, your facts are wrong. Snap-On branded hand tools are made in the USA. Period.

http://www.snapon.com/faqs/answers.asp?question=23

Snap-On distributors market a line of lower priced tools branded as Blue-Point. The overwhelming majority of this is manufactured by another OEM and is rebadged. This stuff may be manufactured in Asia. The tool will not be branded Snap-On, it will say Blue-Point. It does not have the same warranty and is priced accordingly.

Look, you may be selling a high quality set of tools, but you cross the line when you start slinging mud at respectable vendors.

Who's slinging mud? Excuse your narrow-mindedness but telling people that some Snap-On tools are made in Taiwan is not slinging mud. Unless you have some negative stereotype that you'd like to let people know about? Are Taiwan goods simply not up to your "standards" of quality? How so? Do you know that 99% of what you have in your possession is made there? The computer you are typing on is made in Malaysia, Taiwan, China, and countless other nations.

Anyways, thanks all for dragging this down to the level of the other forums, we thought higher of this forum, but obviously, the level of discourse could not be maintained. It had to fall into immature banter.

Are you saying that Snap-On is selling tools that are branded as Snap-On and say Made in USA but they are actually from Taiwan? Or is this in regards to the Blue-point brand?

Are they? You tell me.
All I know is that Snap-On reps were purchasing tools and some Snap-On tools I've seen locally here - from the Snap-On dealer that drives around all the time to sell stuff look suspiciously identical to the ones that this Taiwan dealer was selling me. Down to the same markings and etchings. Taiwan is good at knocking stuff off, but you can always tell a replica from the real thing if you look close enough - I did and couldn't tell

This in no way changes the quality of the Snap-On tools BTW. I think they are superior to almost any out there.

What does it take to stop this thread.

I keep following it like a bad soap opera, it bugs the **** out of me because its so lame. Yet I keep coming back for more.

Throw the tool set at me and knock me out PLEASE!
I think it will hurt more if it was made in the US, US stuff is usually heavier!

Not to be picky, but some of the best tools I've owned were either Swiss or Japanese made. The Swiss brand was not cheap - far more expensive than Snap-on, but it lasted for ever, verses wearing out the Snap-on, Craftsman, etc equivalent. Not all my tools need to be this quality - I'll never wear out a 17mm wrench for example, but the tools I used everyday (especially allen wrenches) I got tired of replacing. I will not buy cheap crappy tools even for single use, as I've broken wrenches or rounded nuts on the first use of a cheap tool.
