    Are they any good? What do they compare to, in quality?
    There is a sale at Lordco autoparts and they have a bunch of tools on sale there, a lot of what I want!!

    Maybe it's another Canadian brand or something. I will look on google to find some info on the company.
    If anyone has experience, post up!

    Nah, I think they're just another generic brand. The local auto parts chain has them ... blue boxes, red lettering, something like that? (Local to me is San Francisco, btw.)

    I would imagine it comes from the same factories as your "Powerbuilt", which IIRC is the brand carried at Checker/Shuck/Kragen, for instance. Nothing special ... prolly one step above Harbor Freight, fwiw.

    The stuff they have advertised is either green, or blue (not sure about the red lettering)

    TTT.
    They do have blue with red lettering on a few of the tools. But most of them are green.

    Thanks
