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.

Mostly MAC and Snap-On. I have some older Craftsman that I got from my dad when I started my auto craze 25 years ago......

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.

There is no one company that makes the best of everything. That's why it depends on the tool what brand I own. If one of them wanted to sponsor my shop then I may change to one company. LOL

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.....
