    Were to get tools??

    since i basically left the shop cold turkey iam gonna be buying all new tools.

    I am used to snap-on and will be buying all the important and high usage tools from them.

    Any recomendations were to get decent tools?Iam not interested in craftsman or cdn tire stuff, some of there stuff just doesnt fit right.they have a great warranty but i dont want to have to keep returning stuff.

    Any places in the lower mainland that carries a good selection?
    i know kms,princess auto?anywere else?

    I gotta get my ass in gear before i look for work,so i gotta get buyin.

    Take a look at the Acklands Grainger web site. They carry the entire Proto line along with others. Should be very close to Snap On. You should be able to open an account as a business and get a discount.

    04 Kawi Z1000,
    Hanson tools on River Road in Richmond is an industrial supplier but also handles mechanic's tools as well. I believe they handle Hazet as well as some other lines.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
