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

Harbor Freight for stupid one time only things.

The majority of my toolbox at work is Snap-On or Mac, but for the "used once and a while" tools you could find just about anything. My toolbox at home is mostly the less expensive stuff, Craftsman, Mazabooboo, or found somewhere along side the road for the basic stuff, but for the specialty stuff I usually go with Snap-On or Mac.

And what's wrong with Kobalt? Are you not aware that they are made by JH Williams who also manufacturers Snap On tools? That they are 100% US made (unlike Craftsman that you favor so much which now is made in China) and come with a 100% unconditional life time warranty and if you break it for whatever reason they will replace it with no questions asked?

Coming from someone asking about Black and Sh*ter oops I mean Black and Decker I didn't think you did.

Also fyi Ryobi is made by TTI and is made in the same plant as Milwaukee tools using the same parts as Milwaukee, just a different shell.

Old old craftsmen and new Kobalt tools.

Hate to say it, but I agree with the above. Craftsmen tools are no longer hardened steel forged tools. They are cheaply maid in china. New Kobalt will outlast and out perform new craftsmen.

So? iPhone gets made in china and is the #1 phone out since forever. Just cause a company has it's brand made overseas now doesn't mean their quality isn't better.

Ryobi Tools brand is owned by Techtronic Industries of Hong Kong.

Secondly i got nothing against people using Ryobi just majority wouldn't buy or has bought the product for all Kobalt is doing better then them.

The black and decker thing was me being sarcastic.

One thing i'll give props Ryobi is creating jobs in America.
