Ever wonder what $20,000 worth of tools looks like?

    From Snap-on that is. This is my bay at work, and the next pic is my double bay top and bottom Snap-on chests. Twenty grand worth of tools, and it's only half full. Everything was ordered over two months ago. On this day, there are 49 tools still on back order. Moral of the story, look closely at Matco and Mac before you commit to buying, "ordering" any tools from Sanp-on. Sure they're nice tools, but shit, if you don't have them, a lot of frickin' good they'll do ya...

    hey pale how did you order the snap-on tools?

    back in the day (well probably even this year now that he has a new hospital with new helicopters to work on in dayton) my dad used to order tools all the time from a snap-on "man" who had a snap-on truck. the tools came within a week or so as far as i could remember. i remember all this because i was 10 at the time and the snap-on dude would give me those T&A calendars (a couple of em you could see ALL the T&A) and my mom would get pissed and confiscate them as soon as I'd bring it home.

    oh well, lots of money for great tools.

    There was a Snap-on salesman right at my school. I ordered them from him. But now I get them from the Snap-on guy who comes to my shop with the Snap-on truck, just like your Dad did.

    I asked him yesterday for a calender and he said he'd have a bunch next Friday when he comes, AND he said "NO MORE T&A" calenders. They quit that. Nows it's cars and bikes and stuff. That's OK though, the Wurth guy who brings all our nuts and bolts and all kinds of other stuff has some real juicey calenders. LOL!

    glad to know the PC culture hasn't totally wiped out many of the best traditions out. snap-on's calendars were my first true introduction to T&A and gorgeous women in general at a decent age (no maxim or anything similar a decade ago)

    every year various Asian customers of mine send me calendars and they have no compunction about showing T&A in theirs. A matter of fact, every other month is topless - at least. In Korea, ALL the beer manufacturers calendars are of topless women. I love it! lol

    Hey freeandfun, I heard that calenders of that type may be worth a buck or two if sold on ebay.

    Now, WHERE CAN I GET ME ONE OF THOSE KOREAN BEER CALENDERS??!! :dance:

    Excelent idea free. I was talking with the Wurth guy at work, and he was saying that "last years" Wurth calenders, T&A, and they're pretty big, were bringing like $40 on ebay. So I can only imagine what those topless asian ones would bring, but, they might have to be sold in the "adult" section on ebay. But probably not the "important stuff covered" ones.
