PostSubject: Best tool for the $$?   Mon Apr 06, 2015 12:44 am

thought i'd let y'all know that i havent just logged off to be forgotten about but the past few months i got a job and been real busy working my a$$ off and buying tools. which brings up my question, what tool brand gets the best quality for the $$$? I just bought a 230pc craftsmen toolset last week and since i got a job and all i'm going to actually start buying tools and a welder and parts + tractors. are harbor freight tools anygood?




p.s

before y'all tell me i cant be making that much money at a part time job, i make $600+ a month and use $40/$60 / month on gas so ye i got alot of money sitting around

Craftsman is good for the price. HF tools can be sketchy. They ARE getting better but I'd advise against screw drivers, socket and ratchets, cutting disks, drill presses, lathes, and some of the power tools.

Kobalt and craftsman is probably the tools id buy at my price level. Dewalt is great for power tools

know anything about the factory refurbished dewalt tools? sears sells them for real cheap ( http://www.sears.com/dewalt-factory-reconditioned-dck425cr-18v-cordless-4-tool/p-SPM5961651507 )


and what about a good welder ?

Craftsman does a sale in the fall on their mechanics set I bought a 300 piece for 199$ some sockets weren't chromed properly so I took half the set back right before Christmas 8B cashiers hate me

I don't even think craftsmen tools are made in the USA anymore
