Brand Preference
 
I am in the market for a couple new tools, A hammer drill, circular saw, jigsaw, and framing nailer. What brands do you all stand by and why? As far as cordless drills I have stuck by Dewalt, their products have always been very durable and dependable, but as far as saws and pneumatic tools what are your suggestions?

Thanks, I have heard good things about the makita saws, I was leaning that way already. I have a big wood working project coming up soon(a Greenhouse) so I appreciate the suggestions.

Cordless = Dewalt
Corded = Ridgid or Milwaukee

The only real nailer I have used is a Passlode, and they are magical. My friend has all 3, the framing nailer, the finish nailer, and the 45 degree finish nailer. A little expensive to run but completely amazing to use. No noisy compressor, no air hose.

Cordless tools: DeWalt
Corded tools: DeWalt, Porter-Cable, Older Black & Decker
Circular Saw: DeWalt
JigSaw: Porter-Cable (Old #548).... Dread the day when it rolls over and dies.
Framing Nailer: Senco
Finish and Brad Nailers: Bosch
My hammer drill is an old Black & Decker (back when they really made tools). It just won't die. If it ever does, I'll be looking at a Bosch
Pneumatic tools: Mostly older IR stuff.
