A tool is a valuable asset
The days when all tools looked pretty much the same are long gone. Today, there is a huge variety of tools on the market. Making the right choice is not always easy. Top quality tools offer a high degree of technical sophistication. There are important details which differentiate these tools from low-price no-name products.
The quality of the materials, the technology, the workmanship and the support provided by the manufacturer are the factors which determine whether the user is able to produce high-quality results after these tools have been in use for a long time. Sales figures for low-cost producers show that purchase decisions are often price-driven. Other factors such as product quality and safety are merely a secondary con sideration in many cases.
If you make your purchasing decisions based on price alone, you will wind up paying more in the end. When you consider that the money you spend on tools is only a small percentage of your total cost but the tool has a decisive influence on the quality of the workpiece, a high quality tool is obviously the right choice.
