How did the "Multimaster" tool work its way into this conversation?
in case he tries to expand his collection, Bosch and Milwaukee have different directions. Bosch stuff is more homeowner/tradesman while Milwaukee is targeting contractor/industrial market. Bosch makes an oscillating tool and M doesn't.
I have the Bosch tools as when i bought them Milwaukee did not have any. Today I would buy the Milwaukee as they have a much greater assortment of tools, not sure if they will discontinue the slower selling ones as TTI often does with their Ridgid powertools because of their HD connection to sales driven item selection.
Since both the Milwaukee and Craftsman are made by TTI, what would be the difference, materials, quality? Ron
TTI owns Milwaukee and Ryobi, but these lines are lightyears apart...I haven't peaked inside them, but in this case the Cman is likely to be much closer to Ryobi quality than MW. Design and materials can vary a lot. Similar situations exist with Bosch/Skil, DeWalt/B&D.
Not sure what you plan on doing with your drill but the Skill is for the casual homeowner use. Thus the price point. Doesn't matter so much which company owns a particular brand because they all have their high, medium and low end tools. The Skill is the low end.
