Favorite Hand Tool Brand


Craftsman, if only because I've only gotten one bad hand tool from them (a rake with a fibreglass handle... well of COURSE that's crap) and even if it breaks, you won't have much trouble finding a Sears or Kmart to swap it out.*

* I'd only had the stupid fibreglass rake for a few weeks, so I exchanged it for a wooden-handled one that was actually cheaper!

For Automotive tools, craftsman. I have some snap-on as well, just very expensive.

Torque wrench - snap-on

Air tools - Ingersoll Rand

Drills - Makita

Also, can't forget my Dremel, pretty handy little tool...

Craftsman, except for a while I bought kobalt cause I'm a Jimmy Johnson fan.

I have a stiletto framing hammer that's the bee's knees.

Bosch and hilti for as much as I can.

Miller for welding.

iPhone to keep my brain in.

I like the older USA made Kobalt! I got a USA 1/2 drive rachet/socket set and a USA 1/2 drive torque wrench on clearance at Lowes! I don't care for the new stock Kobalt! I also love Bosch escpially their 1224 bulldog rotary and 1617 fixed base/ plunge router kit! Their 1132vsr right angle drill rocks!
