I have just a minor problem.... I could put six guys to work with all the tools I have.

Last summer my wife was working on something in the garage and needed a tool. Without thinking I pointed her to a drawer where I have several extra wrench sets (just in case). This lead to me counting wrench sets out of curiosity. I realized I had at least 42 sets of wrenches. I may have a problem.


I find stuff all the time that I forgot I had. My most useless tool box drawer is full of specialty tools for foreign cars that I've never used and will never use.

Not saying theyre the best brand out there,or that theyre not.But i collect Dewalt tools.Still using the Dewalt miter saw my dad bought alittle over 20 years ago.Every year for my anniversary,i get dewalt stuff too.Just recently bought the Dewalt plunge router set.Still in the box, never used but i have it when i need it.I do side carpentry jobs occasionally so all the tools gave already paid for themselves.

I too have a drawer of specialty tools. Any time I do a repair that requires a tool I buy it. I still save money over hiring a mechanic. I also have more wood working tools than I can remember. I use a lot of them daily for work but again I have a lot of specialty tools that I may only use once every couple years but they pay for themselves on the first job... I live my tools. I also have so many trapping tools that storage is a small problem. Lol

How does the quality of their new stuff compare to their older tools?

I have a lot of Dewalt stuff. It's not bad for the price. The thing to remember is that no one makes things the way they used to. For a home shop, in general their stuff it's pretty good but I wouldn't use it for any type of production or other abuse. I pick and choose depending on the tool. I like Dewalt saws. For routers, I prefer Porter Cable. I also own a few Bosch tools, they make nice circular saws. It all depends.

Iv been happy with the quality.My cordless drill batteries are even going strong after 2 or 3 years.I have a porter cable table saw thats been good but when it quits ill probably replace with a dewalt one.I used to do Construction for a living and used some dewalt then too.I think theyd hold up well for every day use.But like i said there may be better brands i just havent tried them.I really like dewalt and stick with what works for me.

Yeah, same here. I have their job-site table saw, miter saw and bench top planer. All are older models. I have two of their circular saws that have absolutely taken a daily beating over the last 15-20 years. One of them quit two years ago when I was using it to cut grooves in a concrete sluiceway I had just rebuilt (I forgot to form grooves for the bolts on the back of the flood gate) and water ran over the top of the coffer dam we had built and drowned my saw.

I don't fault DeWalt for that.

All the good tools are at the work place, a 2nd set is required for around the house and vehicles, and a 3rd set for down on the farm! LOL

I was just out playing with my newest tool, the DeWalt 60v String Timmer. So much better than gas powered. smile
