Both of you guys are right. Snap-on actually sells a Strand rebrand version and more recently they are making their own. I got both in my box. Both are excellent the newer snappy made ones have more snappy plier type handles and are bigger.

Mac

Mac Tools 1/2" Impact Wrench (AW612Q) - Aircat 1/2" Impact Wrench (ACA1100K)
Actually it is the Nitrocat 1200-K (ACA1200K)

AIRCAT also builds the MAC 3/8" 3/4" and "mini" 1/2" Impact Wrench models.

MATCO is a division of Danaher; so I'd expect MATCO, Armstrong, and corporate siblings and offshoots to be the same or similar.

Twenty years ago, I considered MATCO to be "Craftsman" but sold with a tool-truck pricetag.

I know the tester them self are so I wouldn't see why the adapters wouldn't be as well.

I dont think SO and stant are the same tester. Atleast not from what I have seen. My dad has a SO coolant pressure tester that is very old and still works great. I have a stant that has been a POS almost as long as I have had it, a guy I work with has one to and its also a POS. I now have a SO tester.

Matco Diesel Compression Test Kit (DCT1553) $281.70
http://www.matcotools.com/catalog/pr...OMPRESSION-KT/

Star Industries Diesel Compression Test Kit (STRTU1553) $158.99
http://www.tooltopia.com/star-tu-15-53.aspx

Same kit, all you're paying for is the sticker on the front.
I have the Star Industries version. It is an excellent set, and well worth the cost.

if its branded snap on they make it or own the company that makes it, if its Blue point somebody makes it for them or they rebrand it

snap on has better warranty though

That's the cheaper set.

I bought their super duper 13 piece set for $275 last week, they seem to be made in house, not outsourced.

Here they are:
