I don’t know about others but I get frustrated by the quality of some of the tools on the market. I have decided that as long as I buy them I am helping to make a market for them and they will continue to grow.

Therefore I have made a promise to myself that I as an individual can choose to “buy once and get a good quality tool”

Also I will not complain about tools anymore when I can make a change myself.

I know that I can only change my onw behavior but I am resigned to do that.

I also know that this will impact the timing of new tool purchases as it will take longer to save the $$. But it will make my apreciate the tools when I can afford them.

I have been checking out estate auctions and getting some nice old tools and will continue to do that when I can.

Sounds like some “daily affirmations” have been articulated.

Your thought process is very sound. Quality costs! One could always argue the merits of what constitutes quality tools but in the final analysis; can it do it’s job accurately, repeatably ,reliably and safely?

Auctions, garage sales, flea markets are good sources to find quality tools; you’re well on your way.

I agree. I am always on the hunt for good quality tools. I would prefer to spend the money one time.

Yup, buy once. Buy quality.
