It’s very tempting to sometimes go for the cheapest option, but when it comes to tools then it can often mean money wasted. Of course if you only want to use your screwdriver once then there may be logic in buying from your local pound shop, however most people, whether DIYers or tradesmen will want years of reliable use from their tools and buying anything less than a good quality product can be a sheer waste of money. We’ve teamed up with UK based Orbital Fasteners, proud suppliers of a wide range of Bosch power tools, to take a look at why you should buy quality tools from day one!
Quality tools will be manufactured from far better components. You’ll find that decent power tools can often have metal parts where the cheaper versions can be made of plastic that will break over time. The same can apply to basic tools such as spanners and screwdrivers. Good quality versions will be made of a harder substance whereas the cheaper alternatives can often cause damage to screws and nuts and are most certainly false economy.
You’ve also got the matter of inconvenience to think of. Do you really want your Holesaw to become blunt and un-useable after a couple of uses meaning you have to abandon the job in hand and buy a new one? Far better to have purchased a good quality trusted brand in the first instance and save yourself both time and money.
When it comes to safety clothing and equipment then there should be no compromise at all. They need to be manufactured to a certain standard to ensure they do the job they are designed for and anything less can be a serious risk to your safety. It really is no good buying safety footwear that won’t protect your feet if you happen to stand on a nail or drop a heavy object on you toe. At the very least you could lose money by not being able to work until the damage heals and at worst you risk permanent damage; certainly a risk not worth taking.
