It's a traditional industry and we like our traditional manufacturers. We don't buy hand tools from a wire manufacturer and don't buy meters from a manufacturer who makes knockout cutters. We go for the guys who specialize and are good at what they do. I know some people like Milwaukee hand tools but I consider them a power tool manufacturer. You can't be all things to all people.

I can't understand manufacturers who have developed a reputation over decades who then destroy it by rebranding Chinese junk. Any idiot in business knows that a good reputation is your greatest asset.

I will buy from a box store if it is the tool I want. Quality supersedes price. I usually buy at the store because when I want it, I want it now. Maybe it's just me but I don't want to wait for delivery from an online store.

99cents, I love ordering tools online as I usually get more then I really need because you just click here and there and it all comes in one big box almost like Christmas. You open it up and forgot your ordered this or that as well so it is like a big surprise. :thumbsup:
