Ratios of Laplace QCD sum rules are used in order to determine the on-shell charm- and beauty-quark masses. After confronting the experimental data in the charmonium and bottonium systems with theory, we obtain mc = 1.46 ± 0.07 GeV and mb = 4.70 ± 0.07 GeV. The error is due to the uncertainties in the values of Λ and the gluon condensate.
