Default Hall of Fame/Shame Tool Survey

Just wondering, what brands have you bought that you've been very happy with
and what brands are you sorry you bought???

My experience:

Hall of Fame: Bosch, Porter-Cable, Delta, Milwaukee

Hall of Shame: Ryobi, Powermatic, Craftsman

I'm not sure you can break it down by brand-name. For example, I really
like my Porter Cable biscuit joiner, but am somewhat disappointed with my
14.4 v PC drill -- I was shaking plastic parts out of it only 2 years after
buying it.

I think each manufacturer has its strong products and weaker ones --
which brand is best probably is also a function of what you are buying
(i.e. tool type -- drill, joiner, saw, etc.) as well as brand.
