A rule of thumb I’ve used in whichever career I’m working at (and it seems I’ve had more than my share….not sure what that says about me :-) is to buy the best tools I can afford. Buying cheap tools is not a cost effective way to do a job or a hobby. They will not work/last as well as a good quality (not necessarily expensive) tool. The frustration of making do with a cheap tool will really tarnish the enjoyment of a hobby or kick the profitability and sustainability out of a job.
