On good ships there are sometimes German tools, and I'm always impressed with their quality and precision.

Ive seen some woodworking tools by fein. I think they are german and they work well and are solid. That is all reflected in the price as well i imagine. When i buy something big i spend the extra money. All my corded drills are hilti and ive got a german made diamond core drill.
