It's worth paying that bit more for specialist tools

Its not worth busting up your hand or worse to save a few dollars.

Right! Especially if you are talking power tools. I'd much rather roll with a Black&Decker than some Chinese effort.

I really think that the E.U. and U.S. have to go more in to research and development and quality.
Our strength is in our education.

A balanced economy needs to have a range of products, services, sectors etc. Relying on "one" major element is a risk to the overall well being of the society as a whole. We can't all be bankers, doctors and lawyers, as there are people who just don't have what it takes or the interest in those fields. There needs to be an option other than McDonalds, Wal-mart and the likes. Manufacturing provides well paying jobs for many people. Relying on China to provide manufactured goods takes those people from the domestic economy out of the picture in the sense that they cannot afford the products and services the Chinese offer. You end up creating unemployment, underemployment and a welfare state when you let your manufacturing sector fail. On the other hand, I don't think you can continue paying them what unions demand. There has to be balance in order to prevent the spread between rich and poor from growing.

Dewalt make good quality drills but are 3 times more expensive as others in the UK. Still it is the first choice of professional tradesmen in the construction industry. At the end of the day you only get what you pay for. Other good quality tools here are spirit levels from Germany, and trowels from USA. Again the most expensive, but the first choice for the trades. As they say "buy cheap and you buy twice".

It would be interesting to know which quality tools are popular in Poland as opposed to cheap imports from China etc.

Dewalt is big in the US along with Milwaukee and B&D

As they say "buy cheap and you buy twice".

Just buy 2 because you know the first one will break:)

Whatever you guys do dont buy any Chinese pneumatic air tools or floor jacks

A mechanics nightmare:)

Chinese effort

I admit that I got suckered in by this really cute salesgirl and I bought this cordless drill for $10 and it actually worked???
Untill I dropped it and the battery pack shattered into

For same reason this happens in USA...Khazar middle men make tons of money on handling, selling and transport of imports, not to mention stock manipulation...Also, Polish along with other European & American 'economists' are brainwashed by so-called 'free trade' concepts, which are always a failure, unless YOUR country is the one manufacturing items that can be cheaply exported....Bankers and money lenders/changers always make out one way or the other.
