I was fortunate enough to buy when Delta/PC made good/affordable tools so my shop is entirely those brands other than a yellow Dewalt 735 and a few Bosch pieces…

Like many, I went through the Craftsman era when I started (and had no money so that Sunday ad was important)...but the experience wasn’t too good so I swore off cheap tools forever…if I can’t afford a good tool, then I save some more until I can.

Delta now seems to require a mortgage, PC has been downgraded to the economy line (whoever bought Milwaukee tried to do that also and almost killed the brand).

I guess if I had to start from scratch, I would look at Bosch.
