That chart can't be right. Everything after 2010 will probably have Chinese characters

Wait a minute, 2018 looks like a rice bowl.

Thanks Chad for posting the chart. These are for sale on Ebay all the time but I couldn't bring myself to buy one.

On a related note, I just bought one of those Bahco-manufactured Harley-Davidson 9-piece ratchet sets.

While inspecting it, I noticed some Snap-on-like characters on all the pieces & I wondered if they were date codes... Sure enough, they match the codes from this updated Snap-on chart for the year 2003 (for the ratchet) and 2002 (for the sockets & extension)!

Has anyone else noticed this on Bahco or Williams pieces?

Some Williams are date marked & some aren't.
No idea about Bahco but I would guess the same as Williams.

Some of the bits from my Bahco screwdriver are date coded 2002. I have Williams Combination wrenches date coded 2000, 2001, and 2002. And my Williams made Kobalt wrenches are date coded as well-mostly 1998 with a few 2001 that I picked up in an ebay lot.

I'd like to think that the last thing that went through his head, other than that bullet, was to wonder how the hell Andy Dufresne ever got the best of him.

I can see it just fine, but here it is again. BTW I printed several copies and had them laminated in plastic at work and keep them in my Snap-on catalog.

I have an old ratchet that is stamped snap on milwaukee usa. It does not have a direction selector, you must push the socket holder out and flip it to the other side. The only number that I can find is a seven. The number is on the ratchet head itself. Would this date back to 1927?

If it has a 7 on it, and Milwaukee, its 1927. Snap on moved to Kenosha in 1930.

Post a pic for us!
