Thank you!

How is it in Croatia? It could be worse :D
Not going too far from this forums main theme, if you need good electrician, plumber, carpenter... it is probably somewhere in western Europe :D Few of them which are still here are either booked for too long in advance or are expensive as hell (for our circumstances).

And about tool tarting, there are 2 options, either buying "in disguise", or collecting bonus points with girlfriend until she allows you. First option has a bit more fun :D

Hi!
Well, from what I've seen, UNIOR has a pretty big presence (they have good quality /price ratio here, outside Croatia and Slovenia it is on par with German brands prices), LUX (they rebrand tools, better pliers are from NWS, screwdrivers from Felo), and I think that generally German brands (Knipex, Wera, Wiha...) have good reputation but with that comes the (high) price.
Regarding power tools, Makita and blue Bosch have biggest service network(but Bosch is always on thin ice, like people are just waiting tool to fail that they could say that Bosch isn't what it used to be :D ), Dewalt has good reputation, Milwaukee just came here in last cca 5 years or so, and it has higher prices than previous 3, I don't know how tradesman rate them. And HILTI ofcourse, it has it's own spot under the Sun :D

For the sidenote, I'm talking from DIYer perspective, and what I've seen on jobsites and spoken to some tradesman.
