This list uses Rigid and other manufacturers names and numbers only as a source of reference for students’ use in selecting tools for type, size, and quality. With tools the old adage applies "you get what you pay for." Past students have purchased tools at places such as Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, and specialty stores. You must permanently identify each of your tools in some fashion because your classmates will all have the same or similar looking tools.
