Depends really on what can be found the fastest since the garage isn't to organized right now. Since i am a Teenager i still use my dads tools and he has several different brands like Milwaukee, DeWalt, Black and Decker, Craftsmen (The Good old USA ones), Armstrong, Snap-On, and the list goes on

Mostly Craftsman, with a little Snap-On mixed in. Lately anything I buy I search out American Made tools.

Mostly Matco that I got from my tech school. In a Craftsman tool box that my dad got me for christmas forever ago. And a mix of Wright tools (local tool company in ohio), georgia pacific, snap on and craftsman. I got the mix of tools from the passing of my grandpa. Cleaned them up and now he's with me everytime I work on my car...

Mixture of Craftsman and Harbor Freight (Pittsburgh). I was building a nice set of ALL Craftsmann and Chicago Pneumatic air tools until 2005 when Hurricane Katrina decided otherwise.....

Most of my hand tools are Craftsman that I've had for years now. Any new hand tools will probably be Pittsburgh (yes the Harbor Freight brand...made in America and have a lifetime warranty).

My new roller box is Central Machinery (from Harbor Freight as well). Very solid unit with good drawer slides. And it's the only way I could afford a roller this large.

My power tools are a mix of electric stuff and my cordless are all 18v Dewalt.

The old Milwaukee power tools are easily the coolest things, they are so solid and heavy duty! The old stuff seems so much higher in quality than the new stuff, so sad.

Very true. But then hardly anyone would pay what a tool of that quality (and not necessarily quality, but materials used...like metal housings) would cost today.
