Question about what tools to use for body work?


I'm going to start to but the needed tools to start doing the body restoration for my goat. Before I start buying a lot of tools which will cost a lot of money, what brand name of tools are the best for the buck. I've been searching a lot on the net and found many brand name tools, I just don't know which one is best. I'll be buying alot of air tools. WHO MAKES THE BEST TOOLS!!!???

Any help will be great.

I know your question pertained specifically to air-tools, but I just wanted to throw two-cents in on body tools...

Don't go cheap on hammers/dollys. I know that you can buy the cheapy kits for around $25.00 that include multiple hammers and dolly's, but these are junk. You can absolutely tell the difference when you pickup a $25.00 martin dolly.

Air-Tool wise, I only have two pnuematic tools...a cut-off wheel and a DA-Sander. I bought generico-brand, and they seem to be holding up fairly well to the work I've put them through.
