What are your thoughts on buying power tools from the same brand - is this a must?
And also, what brand would you recommend?
This is mostly for installing cabinetry etc in an old apartment kitchen that needs renovation. Can borrow other tools from my parents, but they couldn't find the jigsaw so I will need to buy a new one anyway.
My dad has tools from all different brands. I figured if I was buying new, it would be good for future purchases to also be the same brand, but not sure which to choose.
Background; I'm in my 20s, this is my first property. I've done renovating with my parents before, and this is the most involved project I've done. I hope this goes well, and I earn some more skills. Would like to do a few other projects in the long run. I'd be limited to weekends and days off, as I have a full time job elsewhere. Not looking to flip houses, just to renovate to my liking. I'll not be doing any plumbing, or electrical myself.
Have a quick browse through Bunnings for a jigsaw and the brand's available from cheapest to most expensive are:
