When buying tools, there’s no shortage of details that require your attention. From the start, your focus should turn to reliability, performance, and value. With these three details guiding you, it’s easier to make an informed and confident buying decision.
Adding to this, it never hurts to have a better understanding of which tool brands are considered the best of the best. While everyone has their preference, here are some brands that consistently rank at or near the top of the industry:
- Stanley Black & Decker
- RIDGID Tools
- Husky Tools
While these brands are among the most popular — due in large part to their combination of reliability and performance — there are others to consider. As you build out your home workshop, don’t spend all your time at local hardware stores. you can find a variety of tools at estate sales for a fraction of the new price.
If value is what you want, it’s often best to purchase gently used preowned tools. This gives you the opportunity to buy from one of the brands above, without paying new prices. So, you end up with a quality tool without breaking the bank.
If you’re in the market for used tools, shop at local estate sales and garage sales. You never know when you’ll come across a “good as new” tool at a fraction of the new price.
