Pretty much the same. Mostly Craftsman with some Snap-On stuff thrown in for good measure.

same here, auto tools it's craftsman with some husky mixed in, but as for power tools (building tools) my garage can't hold much more but those are how I make my living anyway. I, just like probably all of you can't have enough tools.

most ratchets and screw driver sets are Craftsman, i got some stanley wood working tools. as far as power tools it's really type specific sanders i have a B&D jitter and a Craftsman random orbit (it works alright, wish i had a pneumatic one though) drill; B&D, recip saw; Miliwaulke all the way, Circular; nothing but Skill baby. if i ever got a cordless drill it'd be a DeWalt but i wouldn't spend money on any other product from them. Mostly i prefer corded tools, i have a truck with two batteries, fast idle mod, a power inverter and lots of extension cords, don't like to depend on batteries. as far as air tools it's all CH from the Compressor downsome of the tools that i rarely use (like my 3/4" drive ratchet set) are off brands like Cummins Tools (kinda like Harbor Freight) but how often do you really use a 3/4" ratchet any way?


Wish list:
1. OBD II scanner
2. A GARAGE!!!
3. TIG & Oxy/Acet welders
4. good Drill Press
5. combo metal lathe/milling machine (just a lil one)

my collection is quite extensive for some one in the Military who has to relocate every so often. Just waiting for the day i can settle down and build my empire! buahahaha

Well not counting what is currently under the Christmas tree here's what I have. Some hand me downs include an old Craftsman circular saw and drill that's maybe 25 years old (back when they made stuff I like) B&D belt sander, mouse, jigsaw, (not my tool preference but they were free) GMC orbital buffer, Pro-Tech 10" miter saw, and some various hand tools. Stuff that I bought includes a Craftsman 80pc socket set, several hand tools. Got some nifty GearWrench and GearRatchet that have prooved to be good quality and handy. Plenty of Klein screwdrivers that I've tried to break and they just won't. Got a Bosch 18v cordless drill, DeWalt 18v cordless hammerdrill/drill/driver, cordless grinder, corded hammerdrill, and sawzall. I can't stand regular circular saws cuz they all seem to be built for lefties or something so I bought a Skil worm drive and I love it. Lastly got the little Rotozip, and a Dremel with all kinds of attachments. I'm really picky about my tools, I buy most of the better stuff. Unless it's something i'll use very rarely like engine tools. I'll go to harbor freight for that.
Of course I want every tool that exists, but let's get real! lol I'll settle for the DeWalt 24v cordless sawzall, their 12" sliding compound miter saw...actually anything DeWalt because both my uncle and I have had great luck with their tools. Never had to repair any of them. Unlike some craftsmans....

Oh hey Jwiger tell me about your fast idle switch, where'd you get it? I could've had my TS chip programmed with that setting but I elected not to to my regret....

I've got every tool known to man I think.......unfortunatly I can never find them when I need them!
MOST of my hand tools are Craftsman, air compressor is a Craftsman, air tools are....heck I don't know - cheap stuff, power tools are mostly a mixture of Milwaukee and Makita, my stick welders a Lincoln and my mig is a Miller. My tool box is as tall as I am and weighs so much empty, without the drawers, you still have to use a freight dolly to move it. It actually blew one of the tires on my dolly when we were moving it into the garage.

Craftsman, Snap-On, MAC and Matco hand tools, IR and Snap-On air tools, Husky 60gal air compressor. Power tool wise, Milwaukee for saws and Makita drills. I also have a DeWalt angle grinder. My welders are Lincolns, when I eventually get a MIG itl be a Miller. most of my specialty stuff is Matco or Snap-On. I had a Cornwell box but it got repossesed. Quit making payments on it beause it rusted out a couple of months after I bought it and haggled with the dealer for months to get it fixed, never happened so I quit paying. I'll never deal with Cornwell again over that, nor Matco. (The Cornwell dealer turned to Matco and burned a lot of bridges, leaving us in the thick if we broke something Cornwell)
