Ive always bought high quality once, then if it ever breaks i raise hell to the company and they usually work something out
Im kinda a salesman by nature so i like to talk people into things. But Im not sure if youve ever watched "Junkman 2000's" videos on you tube. He uses a Porter Cable 7424 xp. Works awesome! I bought it myself. That buffer with 7 pads for only $180. Just random food for thought. and that machine will never break down.
I started out with craftsman tools. Not top line, but good quality and life
time guarantee. Then i discovered Harbor freight. and had a reality check.
I don't use my tools professionally at 100% duty cycle. Its 5% duty cycle
at best. So i DONT need top level tools for much of my home wrench work.
Now when it comes to battery or electric tools, it does pay to get better
units. I have dewalt impacts and come craftsman 19.2V stuff among
I have harbor freight specialty tools like front end tool sets, brake bleeders
ball joint kits, pullers and others. They would have cost me Hundreds of
dollars to buy normally, But i got them all all at discount with coupons.
Its allowed me to economically do some repairs that i might not have done
because the tools cost too much.
if i pulled front end parts every day, my set might have died by now.
But it has allowed me to do all my cars and bro in laws truck too.
Sure, i would like 20K in snap on or SK or such. But its not going to happen
in this lifetime for me. For the price of one snap on socket, i can buy a whole set at Harbor.
The sad part now is i have so much harbor tools, its a challenge to find
something i don't already have on sale. There black Friday add this year
has not tripped my must go meter.
Sometime i would like to get a Mig welder. But i am still on the fence
on whether i need to scale up to a better brand on that purchase.
I would love to have a Miller or such, but thats a LOT of money.
Yea, i am tool junky at times...
