You might try not marketing to professionals. Gear yourketing efforts towards home owners. You won't sell this stuff to people who know tools.

thanks everyone.. it looks like we need to move towards brand name stuff for sure. No one seems to want to skimp on tools.

I'm not sure you could narrow it to only 5 brands, but in attempting to I'd have to say...

DeWalt (not my personal favorite, but very popular)
Makita
Bosch
Milwaukee
and Porter Cable

Default Hey

I just posted the same stuff on another thread....I feel so left out of the loop.
Try www.coastaltool.com for a great company I spend thousands at.
