      Not to sound like a jerk but the cable was already broken which they probably realized when they saw it was glued back together. Honestly I don’t think you should have even argued to get a free replacement. However, according to your account, th way they treated you was ridiculous. Although, I think you should have not have even n raised the issue as you knew it was already broken.

        I hardly own any chrome sockets. I have pretty much all impact sockets. minus my 1/4 inch stuff. i’ve got 6 and 12 point in 3/8 and 1/2 drive. my 3/4 and 1 in drive stuff is all 6 point. minus a few special sockets for head bolts. I work on trucks though so clearance is USUALLY not a huge deal so i can work with just having impact sockets. But ya sockets occupy a shitload of space.

            I haven’t used chrome sockets in years. I have all GP impact sockets, 12, 6 point, swivels, extensions, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1 inch drive. I swear by Grey Pneumatic sockets. And the MAC tool truck in my area sells and warranties them. Never had to warranty one yet. You simply cannot beat them. I took all my chrome stuff home to make more room in my socket drawer. For example….a 3/4 drive 2 3/4 inch impact socket….Snap on wanted around 400 bucks. For one socket! picked up a GP off amazon for 100 bucks. Been going strong for 4 years

                    One of my favorite strategies only works if the broken fastener still has some exposed threads and is not broken off flush or below a surface. What i’ll do is find the same size nut and weld it onto the end of the broken bolt. Then use a wrench to loosen it. When you weld the nut on, the heat created usually breaks up some of the corrosion

                        Who knows. I do have a snap on box. Bought used for cash. 3 grand. Retail price online is 7900. I also own quite a few snap on hand tools. I own hardly any snap on sockets. They’re all mostly harbor freight/northern tool impact sockets. I love snap on ratchets though. There’s no comparison there. What kills me is brand new techs who have all the latest and greatest battery powered impacts and stuff, yet they don’t own bolt extractors, drill bits, stuff like that. I just stopped offering advice. To each his own i’ve decided. Some guys want a nice huge tool box and some people like a brand new range rover. I just quit worrying about how people spend their money.

                            Another good way to learn and not have to worry too much about the pay aspect of things is an hourly position. Like for a fleet, or municipality or state agency or something. You’re getting paid from the time you clock in, until you go home. Most large fleets send techs to OEM training classes. And since guys aren’t rushing thru jobs to get paid, the more experienced guys are willing to help you out more. I’ve been hourly since I left school. Working on garbage trucks all day everyday and loving it.

                                I buy the heavy duty nitrile gloves from harbor freight. 7 mil thickness. 10 bucks a box. And i reuse them multiple times. and they have the long cuff on them. I like them better than anything i’ve ever used. Even better than diamond grip!
