    Babco Tools

    LOML discovered Babco Tools tonight. I've never heard of them. But there's a store here in my (little) town. They are carrying some power tool brands called "Mountain" and "Sunex".

    Anyone ever hear anything good or bad about Mountain and Sunex brands?

    Never heard of Babco before. Dunno how their tool prices compare to other Canadian mail-order outfits, but a bit of Internet price comparison with places like Amazon would probably answer that question. Also, neither Sunex or Mountain ring any bells. I poked around the Babco website a bit, but didn't see any power tools from either brand. Without seeing them, I'd hazard a guess that they are custom-branded generic Asian tools, which may or may not be a good value.

    +1 on what vaughn said. Probably store brand, could be good or bad depending on what they get made.
