    I've had no problem with my little bitty drill press that I got from them 5 or so years ago. http://www.harborfreight.com/5-speed-drill-press-38119.html. I'm still in the middle of assembling the 2HP dust collector because I am adding a separator and trying to reconfigure it to take much less space. Still need to get the 1 micron bag from http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/shakerfeltpolyestermicronfilterbag20x32.aspx I haven't really gotten to use it much yet but my wife got me the spindle sander ( http://www.harborfreight.com/oscillating-spindle-sander-95088.html ) which seems to be the same as http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2021065/24147/Triton-Spindle-Sander.aspx except she got it on sale and used a 20% off coupon from the back of one of my Wood Magazines Popular mechanics rated their hammer drill pretty decent recently considering the bang for the buck. http://www.harborfreight.com/1-2-half-inch-variable-speed-reversible-hammer-drill-67616.html My son got me this for Christmas....I don't expect great things from it, but it's nice to have a corded drill when the batteries wear down. http://www.harborfreight.com/heavy-duty-professional-3-8-eighth-inch-magnesium-drill-98179.html I've also bought some real crap from them just because it was on sale..... -I threw away some universal tool stands that were just thin and poorly made. -The drill press extension table wouldn't stay put on the drill press so I kept trying to tweek it down till I pulled the T-nuts off of it. It's sitting aside to either be used as jig parts or to be modified to hang on to the table better. http://www.harborfreight.com/drill-press-extension-table-with-fence-96395.html
