    For my hammer I have a Stiletto hammer. It is awesome. Wooden handle with a titanium head, weighs only 12oz but has the same impact as a 20oz. I have tendonitis in my elbow, so it saves me a lot of grief when tearing apart old siding or roofing where I need to swing it all day. As far as power tools, I was using Dewalt for just about everything, but recently purchased some Makita tools, and man they are great.

    Power tools I prefer Milwaukee
    Hand tools- Harbor Freight
    Tool box- 13 drawer Aldi's supermarket special $69.99 (It looks like the $300 craftsman box)
    TECH II w CANDI, and pass thru II updated to 2012

    I spend very little on hand tools, mainly because I can't see spending $40 on a socket from a popular brand when I can buy 40 of the same sockets from Harbor Freight for $0.99. Where I spend the big money at is my diagnostic and electrical equipment, I have an Snap on mt2500 updated up to 2005. Full capabilities for ABS, airbags, TCM, BCM, ECM, transmission.

    My crimpers which are capable of making up oem connectors for pennies on the dollar, this is actually my favorite tool lo
