Ok I just finished reading them all.
A lot of people are saying that it is human nature, but I guess I could argue, that if it is human nature, then EVERYBODY would be like that and that is certainly not the case. Though I can agree that it is natural for a person to get fanatical about something. We see it everyday from religion to sports. So I guess this is nothing new.
I think that I am lucky to not have had a certain brand of tools to live by. Growing up I thought Black & Decker was the best until I started getting into woodworking, then I learned pretty quickly that there was no best brand and that almost all of the popular brands have a tool that could be considered "the best" in its category.
Right now, my shop is like a rainbow, I don't have more than 2 tools from one brand, though that may have changed if some of the new tools were out when I bought some of my tools.
Still I can see that while Festool, Milwaukee and Bosch are great brands, my loyalty stops when their tools stop being the most useful to me. I guess you could call me a fair weather tool fan.
A WNetter huh?Just the mention that you bought a Craftsman ( Crapsman )
