Do you boycott tools?
After having bad experiences with a brand name, I forever boycott them.
Here is my list:
-Stanley (got a tape measure for 5$ on sale, marked down from 16$--the piece of shit didn't last half a fucken day before it got bent the fuck out of shape)
-Bosch (My boss has two lithium ion bosh cordless drills. They are weak as shit, and can't hold a charge to save their lives. They suck donkeys. Hate how they feel, how they sound, how they look, and how they get the job done)
-Jobmate (it's shit for beginners to start with)
-Black and Decker (I don't even have to give a reason, everyone knows they are dreadful garbage)
-Ryobi (cheap crap)
-Mastercraft powertools (though I'll buy their hand tools though, usually come with a lifetime gurantee)
-Licoln Electric (everything always feels and looks cheap)
I have some brands on trail too:
Here are my trusted brands
Those are what I can think off my head.
How bout you?

Hey /diy/, I've recently gotten into gardening, but the housing development I live in doesn't allow raised beds or similar structures. I'm doing what I can with the land that I own, but the soil is poor and I'm not willing to spend the money buying better topsoil and my compost isn't quite ready.
Because of this, I've begun looking into terrariums, and I've made a few in mason jars as gifts for my girlfriend and sister. I'm thinking of expanding into ant farms and small aquariums, but before I do I figured I'd ask you guys for ideas or tips.
Also I have a surplus of mason jars. My grandma was big into making preserves before she croaked and I found 50+ in her basement recently.
Will dump photos of jar and current terrariums I've made
tl;dr: diy Terrariums, ant farms and similar things thread

Who makes the best cordless drills?
Let the war begin!
I'm with Dewalt on this, better than shit ass Bosch and Milwaukee. It feels right, and performs excellently. Also, they specialize in compact high-voltage lith-ion batteries, which is more advanced than the other bulky competitors.
I like Mikita, but I prefer Dewalts drills over theirs.
What cordless drill do you like the most?
