Snap-on Crud Thug
« on: May 08, 2008, 09:26:44 PM »
I would use one of these on my 4x4, so I figured general 4x4 would be a good section to post in. If this is the wrong section please move this topic.

Has anyone ever used one of these? I hear they are pretty cool and work amazingly well.

I was just curious if anybody had used one. I would love an air grinder with a paddle handle like this snap-on deal, and I guess I could just throw on a wire wheel. Anyone have a suggestion for a good air grinder?

Is says Snap-on so Its way over priced!! You can get the same thing for 1/2 price

These work really good:

Standard Duty Air Needle Scaler
    MSRP: $242.98  


SKU: DFXDF701
The Stripper - Undercoating and Pin-Stripe Removal Air Tool
       MSRP: $249.00



  www.wtdsupply.com              :beerchug:

Never used one personaly but everyone that bought one loves them.  Just my  :twocents:

what is wrong with an electric grinder?

i run a harbor frieght electric grinder and it has never let me down, even after years of hard use.... i jsut slap a wheel on it....

as far as air tools.... pretty much anything is fine... you just gotta have the right are requirements and keep it lubed

Don't get me wrong. If your a person just starting out in the industry then I say that would be a good tool to have. I have been buying tools for over 20 years. I would just buy the attachments & spend the $390 left over on something else  :gap:

Hmm, I have never seen anything like the first item. Interesting... how does it work?

2nd item looks like almost the same thing as the Snap-on one, but with the wheel going the other direction, and half the price. I like it a lot!

I am done with electric grinders. I much prefer air grinders after using them in school all the time.

I am pretty sure this is not going to be the industry I end up in, but with all the home fab work/restorations I have been pulled into, I figured this would be a pretty nifty tool.

I was thinking paint/rust remover myself. Maybe it is not strong enough for that? If that is the case, I will just buy a good air grinder and buy some good wire wheels for it.

I am not doing HF because there is not an HF store anywhere near me. If there was one in my town, I might look into it. Thanks for the suggestion though. :thumbs:

Snap-off used to be worth the extra $ when their lifetime warranty meant Lifetime.

I never said it was worth the extra $$, I just prefer to buy stuff that I can take right back if it doesn't function correctly.  If I am going to buy some HF stuff, I would like to be able to walk into a HF store, buy it, and walk out. If it doesn't work, I walk in and say I need a new one. Its the same deal with anything I buy. The only thing I have bought that I cannot return back to the store I bought it from if it doesn't work is stuff I bought from Marlin and engine parts companies. It will be interesting when they open a store here, I will have to go check it out. Thanks for that jimbo! :thumbs:

That is another good point, haha. My dad has a real hate for HF, but I am somewhat open to HF, and will check it out if they ever open a store here. He wants me to buy high quality stuff that will last a lifetime, and in his experiences HF stuff has not done that. He says there is a reason why they are referred to as "disposable tools."

It's funny how one quality tool manufacturer will want way more than the others for the same basic tool, then way less for another.  I priced tubing flaring tools between mac, matco and snap on, with snap on being the cheapest by like $15! 

I'll buy stuff I don't really care about from hf, but if there's a chance of it coming apart while spinning  20,000 rpm I'm leary!

Uh...  I just like the name   Crud Thug.    :gap:
