anyone know who carries Matco locally?

I need a 15mm Pro-Swing™ Wrench. Its a cool, internally ratcheting box end wrench. I borrowed one to get to a pesky bolt on my tranny but I can't find anyone that sells them.

The guy said get it at "Lowes" but folsom Lowes don't carry Matco.

tnx,

- Dan

Matco tools suck IMO

but i do know what your talking about and yes i own them, its the only Matco i have ever been happy with, for other people, these wrenchs are about the same size as your Standard wrench (read that a 15mm is the same size as a 15 mm crapsman) but they have a ratchet fuction, these are not like the "other" ratcht wrenchs that are just to big to live with, the matco ones you can not switch dircetion of the ratchet ie no button, you just have to turn it upside down,
these are stong as well, i have put 3 foot braker bars on it and still only have one bent one, but never broke a ratchet.

they cost (last guess) like 200-250 bones for a 10-19mm set, same for SAE as well

if you're really wanting to spend that much on a wrench, go with Mac. Mac is by far the better tool. We have nothing but snap-on here at work, i'd take a Mac anyday of the week over a snap-on. Just my opinion though. Hell most people swear by craftsman (trying not to laugh here), to each his own i guess.
