The Top Selling Festool Power Tools
Festool is fast becoming one of the best brands of power tools on the market, but are they worth the cost?
With so many power tool brands on the shelf, how do you know which is the best one? Do you look at price or do you consider innovation, efficiency, accuracy and dependability?
When money becomes tight, we all look for ways to bring in some extra income, perhaps with a small home-based business on the side, making decor accessories or furniture, or just being all-round DIY savvy. This is one area where you can enjoy the fun of making something yourself and then being able to make a bit of money out of it. Let's be honest, entrepreneurship is thriving around the world and South Africa is no exception. If more people empowered themselves with DIY skills such as woodworking, cabinetmaking, welding and so on, we would have thriving businesses that would improve the economy and fill up a huge gap in the market.

Most of the leading brand power tools don't come cheap. Consider that not only are you paying for the tools themselves, but also the research and development that goes into designing the tools that make your life easier and the job simpler.
