A professional pastry taster could get in real close with some professional pastry makers if he could speak french.

What is ya'lls opinion on cementex vs. klein?

The grips on some of both feel uncomfortable to me, you have to try them and see which you like better. You will more than likely end up with a hybrid mix.

My new apprentice picked up a bag of green tools from the depot for like $50. He stopped by this afternoon to show me. They look sorta heavyduty but we'll see. They are a collection of stuff the depot sells that resembles Greenlee.

A guy I know is very proud of his $52 electrician's tool kit from Big Box....he's also proud of his Harbor Freight purchases ....you get what you pay for.

If the tools are going to make me money, they gotta be good/best.
If the tools are for "DIY"..."good enough" works ....like my $89 Craftsman 10" Table saw.

Is it their "commercial electric" brand? Probably about as good as their cans.

Re: Klein Tools Or Greenlee


I don't understand why so many people swear by either of these brands, most people favor Klein. I think it's the whole made in the u.s thing. Iv used both and prefer Klein by a bit. As soon as I tried knipex my kleins and greenlees were retired to weekend work around the house. I hate to be the one to say it, but German built tools are in a different league than anything made here. Wiha, knipex= BMW,Audi. Klein,greenlee = dodge, Pontiac.

Re: Klein Tools Or Greenlee


Perhaps some sort of sales person for Knipex's double priced tools to be going that far back in the archives. Though I admit I am also a Knipex fan. Got a pair of their auto adjusting channel locks a few months and have been very happy with them. Although for fifty bucks I would still be using my old Knipex channel locks, but the supply house was throwing a party one day and let me have em for only 12 bucks
