ID:	32347What type of tools does everyone have in their garage? Mine is about 50% craftsman with a mix of other stuff that people have given to me over the years or that I buy one at a time.

    I have a craftsman toolbox and a tool set for the truck. Most of my wrenches, screwdrivers and sockets are craftsman, but the power tools are makita and other brands. My favorite is the sawzall and it's a DeWalt.

    A little bit of everything. craftsman tool box, sockets, ratchets, wrenches, table saw, chop saw. Kobalt screw drivers. from there Makita, rigid, milwaukee (sp), husky and some harbor freight brands on power/air tools. Wife jokes that I start new projects just so I can get a new tool each time, cuz there's always something I dont have that I need to finish the job

    Yea I'd have to say I've got a little bit of every tool manufacturer too, and a few off brand foreign tools I picked up while overseas.
    I prefer to buy Matco or Snap-on since Craftsman changed their standards and rules, but we dont always get what we want.

    Primarily most of my tools are Craftsman, but there have been HF tools sneaking their way into my collection. My screw gun is an 18 volt DeWalt.

    My general rule is that tools that get used a lot and that get beat on, are Craftsman, tools that I don't use too often and if I break it isn't a big deal have been HF. And for woodworking and other electric power tools, DeWalt all the way.
