Stay away from anything electric(drills etc.). I bought a 9" grinder from them about 5 years ago, and it sees double duty-actual metal grinding, and installing a polishing head on it for bringing back the shine to my aluminum wheels on the semi. I'd have to say it's got about 100 hours on it so far, and still going strong. I'd buy another for the $30 I spent if this one every croaks. When it comes to things like pry bars, splitting mauls, sledge hammers, anvils, etc, it's pretty hard to go wrong with a HF tool. I bought an anvil from them via mail order years ago. They had a $50 free shipping special running, and the anvil was like $40 or so, I tossed in a set of splitting wedges (which always seem to disappear) and some other BS. They shipped it via USPS....a 55 lb anvil! I thought my postal guy was going to hit me in the head with it when he watched me unwrap that thing. HF is a great source for things like small bolt assortments, heat shrink assortments, cotter pin collections, grease zerk kits, etc. For the price of buying 6 individual pieces at the hardware store, you get this for $6.
