Hi,

I am a consultant working on a project to analyze the tool industry. I was wondering where drywall contractors regularly buy tools, whether at the big boxes, online or at other specialty stores. I would appreciate it if you could tell which specialty stores. :)

Also, I am curious if drywall contractors use levels and if so are there preferred brands?

Any insight you provide is greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Arielle

It I need something quick I just grab it at Home Depot. I'll even buy some inexpensive cordless screw guns or reciprocating saws to keep on site for my guys to use from there. Better power tools I'll either get from my local supply house or online from a reputable site if this price is right. I've even got a few great deals on eBay where I've bought several Paslode nail guns, 2 Bostitch floor staplers and a Dewalt screw gun, all brand new and sill going 4 years later.

All wall mostly. If for some reason all your things break there's usually a local specialty store that sells basic stilt parts and 7800 sander parts. Online is where we shop now.
Stabila levels with powerful magnets you don't do any work getting bead straight with those.

I often read the review about the products that I want to buy on the Internet and on Amazon. I've bought a Occidental Leather tool belt after reading its review on Amazon and I'm very happy with that purchased.
