Well some might shudder at the thought of this, but sears usually has some craftsman sets with many pieces all of very good quality.
I once had a nice mechanics toolset made by craftsman with like 150 pieces. Mostly ratchets and sockets, but it had combination wrenches in metric and standard.
It was not very expensive, and came in a nice carrying case. I found it had most everything I neeed if not everything I needed.
When I went to college, and left it at home, my family somehow lost almost every tool. I was left witha few sockets.
I'll buy another craftsman set soon enough. They are good for a DIY'er.
If you want to buy some of the more expensive brands, they all make top quality and extremely nice tools. The price might be a bit high for some of the stuff by some peoples standards, but they will last a lifetime.
Craftsman tools have a lifetime warranty. Break one and take it in they will replace it free for life.
Others will mention the other brands I can't think of at all.
