What’s the Most You’ve Spent on a Single Tool?

Poll - August 12, 2013

Tools can be quite expensive, especially if you buy them new or you just happen to have a thing for premium quality. While in every category there are always less expensive options available, the high end will put a serious dent in your credit card. The 20″ helical head planer pictured left costs about $4300. Powermatic is definitely a high quality brand, but they aren’t even close to the most expensive on the market!

And if you’re a hand tool user, you aren’t exempt from this question. I have seen products from companies like Bridge City Toolworks and Sauer & Steiner that make my wallet quiver in fear.

So we are curious, what’s the most you’ve ever spent on a single tool purchase?
