For the average guy, I think you can't beat Princess Auto, especially when they are on sale. Some of the tools they offer are labeled "Professional" and I'll look for that, even though there is better stuff out there. Oiling them each day of use helps too. I did buy a high quality 1/2" impact gun at Acklands, because I use that a lot and I figure it's worth the extra bucks.
