Each electrician develops a fondness for tools that approaches a spiritual
level. I can without hesitation admit that I love my tools. I have spent more
time with them than with anyone else. They are family.
Now my list of favorite tools is just my list. Yours will likely be quite
different. Mine is made up of specific brands where that matters. These are the
items which have served well. I am partial to tools which last. Tools which have
a guarantee, and tools which let me do what I try to do.
