Default The Truck Tool Equivalents Thread - Gathering Data

While searching for some good bang-for-the-buck tools, I've discovered that many of the tool truck brands can be purchased for about 1/2 price by going through their industrial brand.

I'd like to use this thread to identify some of the most common brands and tools for easy reference.

Here's my contribution so far.

Please add to the list. When we get a big enough response, I'll put together a master thread. Be sure to include an exact model number from the alternative brand.

The tool should be identical to the truck version, or at least 95% similar.

F80 Ratchet (1/4,3/8,1/2 80 tooth) - Bahco 6950,7750,8150
F936 Ratchet (3/8, 36 tooth) - Williams B-52EHA

FLF936 Ratchet (3/8, 36 tooth, flex) - Williams B-52EHFA
