I didn't buy all of these tools at once - or even over a few years - I've been slowly collecting and upgrading tools for over 20 years. This partial list shows a snapshot in the collection process that has taken many years.
I spend a fair amount of time researching and reading reviews prior to purchasing tools to ensure I get the best value I can and get something meeting my expectations. I buy the best tools I need with their shortcomings taken into account.
Remember, better tools makes good work easier and faster but don't ensure it.
