    Craftsman (can't see paying 3x more for the same tool with more polish)

    Dewalt for power tools. Never let me down yet. And I beat the snot out of them !

    Snap-On all the way. A number of years ago I was an auto mechanic for a living. All I used was Snap-On. I brought everything home when I quit being a mech and have just added to them ever since. If I climbed on the Snap-On truck tomorrow and bought everything I have, I would spend about $70,000.00 to $80,000.00.

    Re: tool brand

    I am no mechanic by trade, but I demand the best tools I can afford. I have quite the few Snap On pieces most of which I bought off of E Bay at fraction of the price

    Nothing else comes close to Snap-On for hand tools, Mac is a distant 2nd, Craftsman and S-K even lower down the totem pole. There is a huge difference in quality, and you get what you pay for. I always buy the best I can afford, and I'm rarely disappointed.

    Snap-On and Ingersoll-Rand air tools.

    Miller Electric welders.

    Victor Oxy-Actetylene torches.

    Milwaukee hand-held power tools.

    Hilti hammer drills.

    Porter Cable for woodworking tools.

    Gray & OTC automotive shop equipment.

    Bridgeport, South Bend, LeBlond, Starrett, Williams machinists tools.


    Brands I refuse to buy: DeWalt/Black & Decker, Makita, Matco, Craftsman.
