This is true especially with DMMs. On some sites if the pros find out you don't have a Fluke you are almost shunned. LOL religious war is a good comparison.

The real bottom line on the tool question is if something works for you just use it.

But expect to be razed just a little bit. Because we are guys and razing is what we do best.

I've had good luck with my 2005 or so era Craftsman 19.2V drill. Has been a great tool for all these years. In the last 6 months it's: mixed a couple buckets of self leveling concrete for our bathroom floor, a bucket of grout (sucked the life out of 2 batteries in no time), did the sheetrock screws in another room, built a workbench, etc. Probably not as good as a high end machine but for my use over the years it's been great.

I've picked up some of the other tools for the line as well (Jigsaw, spiral saw, another drill, sander) and added a LiIon battery. The other tools seem to work great as well.

May not be the absolute best but good enough and get the job done.
