My brother used to work for Harbor Frieght at the home office. He said the company philosophy is basically one use tools, or "a hammer for a woman who wants to hang a picture'.
I have never believed you need to buy the most expensive tool, but I do believe you should try to buy quality. The idea you can buy a new one each year and come out ahead is a false economy in my opinion. Things never fail when it is easiest for you.
Sing to a sailor's courage, Sing while the elbows bend,
A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.
