What Brand Tools Do You Use In Your Garage?

Let us know your favorite tool to use aswell.

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

Colbalt is a cheaper quality but, yet affordable.

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.

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

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
