What Brand Tools Do You Use In Your Garage?
 
Let us know your favorite tool to use aswell. :thumbsup:

I usually use Craftsman tools and Dewalts. Anything cordless is the way to go for sure. :D

Colbalt is a cheaper quality but, yet affordable. :thumbsup:

It's what was given to me so I am not going to complain and when I break em there's no need to get mad!

Craftsman, all the way.

Craftsman, Snap-On, Harbor Freight and I'm sure some random Taiwan-ese stuff.

jeremywes 10-26-2012 02:00 PM

Mac and snap-on mostly but some craftsman (Back when they used to make good tools)

GMTool 10-27-2012 11:09 AM

I bought a good set of Craftsman tools back in the early 80's, still got em, still use em.

I use what I can afford. Some things have been given to me, most I bought. Depends on what it is and how often I'm going to use it.

As far as hand tools I have Craftsman, Stanley, Channellock, Snap On, Husky, Duralast, Great Neck, etc...

Power tools, Makita, Ryobi, Black and Decker, Milwaukee.

My 3 ton Craftsman floor jack blew a seal and didn't fit under the Camaro anyway so I bought a 3 ton low profile Torin from WalMart. Works great. I have Craftsman stands and ramps from WalMart or wherever.

With my mish mash of red headed step child tools I engine swapped my Chevy truck twice (including an LS 5.3L swap), lowered it, did the top end on an S10, a few hub assemblies on late model Chevrolets, numerous set of brakes, and countless other projects.

Snap on

At home it's Craftsman, mainly.

The technicians at work use Snap-On. Super expensive IMO, but a tool truck stops at the shop for sales and delivery and they come with a strong warranty.

Craftsman...dewalt power tools

Sikoriko 10-28-2012 03:05 PM

Craftsman, Proto and Snap on

gelboy1015 10-29-2012 02:30 AM

Craftsman, Kobalt, and Husky, along with some Snap-On and Matco stuff. My favorite tool is my Duralast ratcheting wrench.

Renegade 10-30-2012 03:52 PM

Alot my friends at the collision shops use snap on. :headbang:

Mr_Draco 11-06-2012 06:36 PM

Old stuff:
- Craftsman for hand tools (back when it was truly made in the US and not made in China like the new stuff is)
- Dewalt for power tools (before Black and Decker bought them out. The new Dewalt is just rebadged B&D stuff and is crappy quality)

Any time I buy new tools:
- Kobalt for hand tools
- Ryobi for power tools

shank0668 11-06-2012 08:31 PM

Craftsman for Hand tools.
Milwaukee for power tools. (their old stuff is indestructible.)

Harbor Freight for stupid one time only things.
