They kit comes with a sandy material you sprinkle on. I wish I would have sprinkled a TON more on, as its slippery as hell when wet. Dangerously slippery.

Hippo's thoughts on sears:

Unfortunately craftsman is complete shit nowadays. They were the brand to have for the normal home mechanic back in the 90's and earlier. We're probably all in the same boat, when I was a kid helping my dad do oil changes or tire rotations we were using craftsman. It's a bit nostalgic doing work on cars in his garage with craftsman tools. But back to Sears, I worked there 2 years ago when I bought my house so I could buy appliances and new tools but I didn't last more than 2 weeks, I didn't even buy my appliances or tools because I was completely disappointed in customer care quality, product support, product install services, warranty service, pretty much everything. Sears is a complete shit hole and I can't even recommend that store to a homeless person. Not to mention they are going out of business pretty soon, they have been closing about a dozen stores down every year for the last 5 years so that lifetime warranty won't exist in the next 5 years and good luck getting their insurance company to pay out if your tools go bad (3 great stories about not honoring the warranty in the 2 weeks I worked there).

Hippo's thoughts on Craftsman:

Most tools are made in china but still carry the normal american quality price and that life time warranty only exists on sockets and wrenches now. So if you pick up impact tools, compressors etc those willl usually only have a 1 year warranty. Most everything that is ratcheting has a low tooth count with shitty internal quality and the switches are plastic (dafukreally??) so be prepared to use that warranty anytime you're torquing past 40lbs. Also, you can warranty only up 3 items per day so don't have too much fun with your tools in one sitting. I will say this though, Craftsman offers their professional line which is made in America and its only a little bit more.

What tools Hippo's uses:

Right now I'm using Kobalt stuff from Lowes, which is run by J.H. Williams a subdivision of Snap on. Its made in Taiwan with prices to match but design and QA is done by J.H. Williams (Snap On) and it carries a lifetime warranty and I don't think lowes is going out of business anytime soon. There are certainly better quality tools to be had out there but bang for buck, Kobalt is a solid if you're looking for Craftsman prices and I don't think lowes is going out of business anytime soon.

Why you should believe the Hippo:

The JH Williams & Snap On info I got from a sales rep who services my father in laws shop plus the internet seems to agree with him SO IT HAS TO BE TRUE. Also I own Snap On ratcheting driver set 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 as well as the same Kobalt set. They look the same and feel the same. The only difference is that one smells like pot stickers and the other one smells like french fries.

Obligatory Hippo post:

I do know an ex-mechanic willing to sell his snap-on tools, but he wants to sell everything in one go. Its like almost a 80K set. Yikes!

I'm sure somebody can find good use for it, like someone setting up a mechanic shop. Good tools cost a Ton for a reason.

The anti slip additive will be a life saver for you Sri, especially if the garage will see alot of traffic.

It does see a lot of traffic, it is usually our entryway into the home. Thanks for ideas guys, keep 'em coming.
