Philosophy of Good Tools
Performance Tools should; increase productivity, improve working conditions, conserve resources, create opportunity.
Durability Tools should be long lasting and reliable. Often tools are made many miles from the end users.
Affordability Tools should be inexpensive without sacrificing quality, performance and durability. Tools should pay for themselves through increased user income.
Beauty Tools should be attractive objects, their beauty arising from their simplicity and functionality.
Multifunctionality Tools should be flexible in their use, providing maximum value to their users throughout the year.
Local Production and Repair Wherever possible, tools should be made locally or close to where they will be used.
