I want to start with woodworking, and am looking at power tools. I've looked at a lot of comparisons and reviews on Youtube, and most of them recommend that you shouldn't buy expert tools as a DIY.
But I've noticed that the cheaper expert tools are about the same price as the expensive DIY tools. A few examples of what I mean:
- Bosch PEX400 AE (green) is about the same price as Bosch GEX 125-2 AE (blue)
- Ryobi RCS 1600K is just a bit cheaper than the Milwaukee CS 55
I chose the companies above since they are DIY and pro variants of tools from the same manufacturer. That way I hope that I don't create confusion and discussions about different brands.
My question is what I should think about when deciding if I should buy cheap pro tools or expensive DIY tools.
The main worry for me is that I buy a lot of tools, and have to buy new tools in a year or two. I don't like the idea of buying new tools because I didn't do my research and bought good enough tools to start with.
