Sometimes a company, like Snappy, needs to change direction in order to be successful while holding true to their beliefs. Snappy started off in 1962 by making small parts for aerospace, computers and the military. While doing this, they found it difficult knowing their product is contributing to casualties on the battlefield; so they switched gears and started to manufacture toy parts and parts for typewriters and others. The big break came in 1988 when Snappy started to develop and produce a quick change chuck for power drills. This turned into a hit and, to this day, they still produce the chuck and a wide variety of accessories for the chuck. Another big hit for Snappy is their quick chuck drill bits and sets and countersinking sets; such as the model 40020 7 piece set. Pair their drill bits with their quick change chuck and you have a formidable set that is ready for action. Companies have often imitated it but cannot reach Snappy's level of industrial quality. The tools are useful to both amateurs and professionals at just the right price.
