Spencer, Mac air tools are IR.
I have a Wright 3/8 ratchet I've had for about 35 years. I've put a few rebuild kits in it, I absolutely love the thing.
The only swivel sockets I have are Craftsman and HF 1/2" drive impacts. I think I've used the Craftsmans a couple times. The HF 3/4 I've used a lot and it's been ok.
The things to never, ever buy from HF, the bit sockets. Allens, torx, that sort of thing. The bit spins in the driver almost always the 1st use.

Dodgefreak, have you seen the matco drawer organizer thing they just came out with? I forgot the actual name but it's slick.

That's good to hear Pete, is Wright considered pro tool quality? How are prices compared to truck brands?

no I have not, My box is actually a Mac because them and snappy was the only two at the college demo. when I went. I got Matco because there wasn't any Mac dealers in my area down home. I would like to buy a Matco box though, a coworker had one and I liked it.

Cornwell is now making their boxes in house, they were rebranded Waterloo. Saw one on the truck Tuesday and the drawers are the best I've felt

I don't know about pro quality, but they've been in business for a long time!

You better be careful about feeling drawers on the truck! :lol:
