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
