Home Depot has Dewalt, Husky, and several other name brand tools. That works for me.

At his old job (tooling mechanic in an automotive supplier plant), my dad got a tool credit every year... he'd buy what he needed from the cheapest stuff out there and pocket the rest

Over the years he'* accumulated a lot of special suspension / steering / etc tools as well. I'm super lucky to have all of this at my disposal

I kind of find this hard to believe that not many people on this forum have accumulated at least $10,000.00 in tools during there life time? What most of you are still teenagers on this forum............or what?

I'm including any tool and there boxes needed to repair, assemble, modify, anything incuding your home.

Am I strange of what, I must have well over that just in tools that have nothing to do with repairing cars?

Hmm, if you count all of it, then yes, I'm well past 10K. But that'* a 20 year collection of stuff (Lathe, compressors, paint guns, hoists, etc, etc.) Some stuff got used quite a bit and more than paid for themselves..like the tooling to do screw-in chokes on shotgun barrels...$300 in tooling to do about 25 barrels at $75 per barrel. Other stuff was a one time waste. Ya win some, ya loose some. All in all, I'm pretty sure I've made/saved more than I spent.
