- Harborfreight allen key SOCKET sets - price is right, quality so-so.
I bought a set of the metric sockets ($13) to use until I can afford some nice Snap On ones for work, and I've used the hell out of them for over a month and have yet to break, round or twist one. I've used my 1/2" impact on them and they laugh at it. I hammered away at the axle bolt on a passat for 2 or 3 min with one and it didn't even leave a mark. I have no idea why I haven't broken one yet. And if I do, hey it was only 13 bucks!
They had a sale on cut-off tools a few weeks ago. Only $9.99! Also have yet to break it.

Speaking of impact stuff, anybody try Sunex stuff? They are a new brand to me, but the quality looks quite good for a reasonable price. Looks to be Taiwanese in origin and may be the same stuff as the high-end Harbor Freight (Pittsburgh Professional, Earthquake), but with a much larger catalog.
I had a co-worker reccomend Sunex to me after I mentioned the extreme pricing on a Snap-On impact set I was about to buy when I first started out. So I bought these two sets:
29pc. 3/8" Metric Master Impact Set http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/shop/SUN-3329.html
39pc. 1/2" Metric Master Impact Set http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/shop/SUN-2669.html
They rule. I've been beating the hell out of them at work for a year and have yet to do anything but wear the paint off a little. They're very solid sockets, I even used my 30mm 1/2" to press out a wheel bearing on our 25 ton press. I couldn't recommend Sunex sockets any more highly. Great price, great quality. I actually prefer my Sunex universal sockets to Snap-Ons!
I'm not sure about how nice the rest of their product line is, but I'm not afraid of buying if it's half as good as the impact sockets.
I get almost all my tools from http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/, another tech at work gave me their catalog one day. EXTREMELY fast shipping and great customer service. Prices are rock bottom and they sell very high quality tools. I almost never can find stuff cheaper than here. You get free shipping on orders over $100 as well, and if you're buying big stuff, free truck freight shipping over $800.
I was running out of space in my little apprentice box, so I bought one of these: http://www.devildogtools.com/in56toboxcor.html Solidly built, tons of space and a good price. I was just happy not to be thousands in debt to the tool guys, but I'm pretty pleased with it. I can post pictures if anyone is interested.
