A workmate in the RAAF during der war, was given a set of spanners, made in USA by the Americans when they went home. He valued them and looked after them for years. I think they were called Hebrand or something similar.
One day he put his tool box down while he loaded his van after a job, then drove off, leaving it sitting on the ground in a busy shopping centre, he never saw them again.
The firm bought him a set of Sidchrome spanners and other tools to compensate.
Just before I retired, the firm supplied all the tools, Made in China.
