RE: Good tool/Bad tool
I have found that many of the HF industrial (orange) have been pretty good. I have one of their $17 disc grinders that just keeps on going. I also have their long nose die grinders that seems to be pretty well built. Admittedly, my 25 year old Craftsman 4 1/2" disc grinder (really a Skil) is more solid than the HF but cost a lot more new.
Has anyone tried and evaluated the HF saw blade welder????? They are pricing them now at $125 on sale. Could be a good deal if they are made well.
Only fools abuse their tools.
