Having worked with tools all my life, I have always tended to buy quality tools that last, but in my sunset years that somehow does not seem so important anymore.

It may outlive the usefulness (ie you're not using it) but unless you're terminally ill, none of us know how long we're going to be here - you could go on like Captain Sir Tom!

Don’t worry Ian I have no plans to depart this mortal coil yet, but I am realistic that should I make Captain Sir Tom’s age I do not think I will be doing much that requires tools.

Buying cheap does not always mean poor quality either if your canny. I bought a whetstone sharpener from Aldi some months back, it was a rebadged Sheppach. In my book they produce some good quality machine tools if the circular saw with a sliding table we had at work was anything to go by.

Today I took delivery of a clone of a Roper Whitney hand punch, the originals you are looking at paying £100 - £150, this one £22. The only thing that can wear out are the punches and dies but it will take the Roper Whitney spares if it comes to that.
