Don't buy cheap tools. They break when you need them most, while you are using them.

Re: Cheap Tool Websites


i think he means finding higher end tools at low prices.

if this is the case ive found going to tool shows is the best spot, you can beat down the reps for tool manufacturers, if they dont lower the price on the tool itself they will usually throw in a bunch of accesories

other than that i frequent tool shops looking for special buys and close outs. when different tool manufacturers re-design a tool and still have large amounts of the older model in their warehouse they sell them to stores for dirt cheap which usually results in 30-40% less on the regular ticket price

Re: Cheap Tool Websites


Harbor freight if ya want cheap tool.
I dont buy cheap tools
ACME Tools seem to be pretty good.
They are the old Tool Crib of the North reborn.
They sell refurbished tools.
I try to buy refurbish tools if they have the ones I want.

I do buy SOME harbor freight tools.
They are mostly throw away items, like taps, drills bits etc.

Other then that Dont buy cheap tools. You'll spend more time in line returning them or buying new one then you will one the job site.
