I'll try to keep up on this. Really wish these forums had the community wiki type 2nd post.

Hope you all are enjoying my contribution as an early poster to the forums.

Don't let a mistaken name break your stride.

MAC Tools DBC18B 18-Piece Disc Brake Caliper Set seems to be identical to the Harbor Freight 97143 Pittsburgh Professional 18 Piece Disc Brake Pad and Caliper Service Tool Kit, with the only differences being the arrangement and color of the blow mold cases.

Anyone going into the automotive tech field or any service repair field these days can easily outfit himself with basic tools from other sources and still have excellent quality tools that will serve many years. Use the trucks for specialty tools or specific tool nobody else offers, but for everything else just go with OEM.

In another life as both a A/P mechanic and small engine mechanic I simply outfitted myself with tools from auto parts stores, industrial supply warehouses, and local hardware stores. Even Sears was useful in those days. I still own and use most of those tools today on my own vehicles.

Ok the bahco pipe wrenches I put p early are snapon\blue point tools pwz0 g, pwz 1 g or pwz 2 g. I've seen them both marked snapon and blue point.

As well, kastar and otc make various brake tools for drum brakes on diesel semi trucks and here are a few, many rebranded by matco, snapon, etc.
Kastar brake tool.

Snap-on makes their own snap ring pliers. They are not identical to the craftsman. Similar, yes. But not the same steel with a different pair of grips/stamp on them.

here's an interesting one. Best i could find was this one, but It was either matco or snap on that has a hard handle one just like this, instead of the soft handle.
http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item....store&tool=all

http://www.tooltopia.com/skew-ppr-53...aign=nextag_r1

I bet they do have something to do with the tooltruck screwdrivers.

I JUST bought these, the handles are identical and side by side the tips are the same also. The appearance is too. I thought I read somewhere that snap on took on the williams handles for there own use.

I work for 2 different shops. One, I have a regular Snap on dealer, prices are regular. The other shop is for the city, we have a Snap on Industrial account, most tools are the same, but different prices (cheaper) and they also carry Bahco and Williams, and some other brands as well. Just one example: the SSDMR4B ratcheting screwdriver is 61.95 plus taxes in the truck, with Snap on industrial it cost me, $35 no taxes( he he) and some other hand tools cost less money with Snap on Industrial.

Snap-on has re-branded Stride retaining ring pliers as Snap-on in the past that were exactly the same as Craftsman (and others). More recently though, they were selling them branded Blue Point.

Matco's smoke machine is a rebranded Redline.Most of Cornwell's impacts including air ratchets are rebranded by IR too.Matco's screwdriver bits for the little powered driver's are rebranded Irwins,I compared my Matco set,the Irwin set my father has and they look the same although the cases are a differant color.OTC is going down hill,Bosch bought them out including Kent Moore,Robinair including the other companies previously owned by SPX.When Bosch buys companies out,they cut out support right away.

Precision instruments torque wrenches, split beam clicker type are the old style of snap on ones. CDI torque also makes a few of theirs/williams ones.

This is a good topic, there are so so so many rebadges on the trucks its crazy. I know of many but I can't think of them off the top of my head.
