Like a lot of people, we were taught early on that when you have to buy a tool, buy a really good one and it will last forever.
You typically see that kind of quality in the details, whether the small things are made to last.

Ryan LeBlanc recently posted a new episode of Two-Minute Drives. In it, he talks about the choices that every drive manufacturer makes — do we pick parts that are inadequate for the environment or application that “possibly” could save us a few pennies, or do we invest in our product so that it lasts for years in the field? It’s an interesting idea to consider, so check out Ryan’s latest. If you have any questions, let’s talk!
