Hi Tim

I would need to say my hand tools are Snap-On and the most common name for the power tools would be Porter Cable...

That would have to be Craftsman. The only thing in my shop right now is a 10" table saw.

We need an 'all of the above' catagory. My shop has so many different colors of tools, it's hard to tell if I have any loyalty to anyone....

Power Tools:

Grizzly green
Hitachi Green
Porter Cable grey
Craftsman grey, grey and red
Makita Blue
Jet White
Delta grey
Ryobi blue
Fluke yellow

Hand Tools:
Craftsman
Stanley/Proto

(the router bit drawer looks like fruit salad, so many different colors of coatings in there)

I think I'm more loyal to the best tool I can get for the price I'm willing to pay, than I am to any particular brand. I have been impressed by some no-name tools, I have been unimpressed by some 'premium name' tools.

Ditto ---

I was raised on Craftsman, Stanley and Black & Decker.
I stayed with these "low end" brands because I had seen them used to build cars and houses and figured they would certainly do anything I ever needed. And so far they have. (Your mileage may vary)
My benchtop table saw is a $99 Delta and its still cutting anything I throw at it after over 10 years. Recently I have picked up some Ryobi because the price was right and so far they haven't disappointed me.

If I am broke and need something in a hurry to finish a specific project -
I've been known to grab whatever is on the sale table --you pay your dime you take your chance -- sometimes you get lucky.

If Santy Claus was to bring me one of those new $500+ Festool circular saws or one of those nice european table saws with the riving knife
-- I sure wouldn't return it .
But -- so far - I am happy with what I have.

The one who says it can't be done --
Should avoid interrupting
the person doing it.
