  1. My tools include Snap-On, Mac, Sunnen, Matco, Craftsman, Proto, Stanley, Hitachi, Walker, OTC, Miller, Lisle, K-D, Hobart, HTP America and other brands, dating over a half-century back to the present. Today, my tool choices also include Harbor Freight. I stumbled onto a real bargain in a Harbor Freight Plasma Cutter years ago. When opened up, the internals were Panasonic! Paid around $400 and got a $1200 equivalent machine. (This model was "passing through", and it no longer appears in the catalog.) More than happy with it, and the consumables are common replacement pieces. The current Chicago Electric Inverter 240V unit looks good, though I haven't seen its internals: http://www.harborfreight.com/welding/plasma-cutters/240-volt-inverter-plasma-cutter-with-digital-display-62204.html. Price is around $650. I buy Harbor Freight products on a select basis. They have "lines" that also indicate quality. Pittsburgh Pro is reliable quality, I beat the living daylights out of the impact sockets and save hundreds over Snap-On or even NAPA. Chicago Electric is my limited use bench sander and line choice for electrical stuff. I own HF jack stands (go overkill, for a 4-ton stand capacity, I get a 6-ton rated), floor jacks (for 2-ton capacity, I get a 4-ton rated) and the hydraulic motorcycle lift ($299 when on sale, this is the best buy on the planet, it's rated much higher than my dual-sport converted Honda XR650R, which weighs only 320 pounds wet, so I'm well covered here). I do best with Harbor Freight's steel products like the lifts, stands, jacks and presses. Must say the lathes are often attractive though my biggest concern would be replacement parts for a given lathe or machining tool that is "passing through" or sourced from a variety of job shops at China (no two alike syndrome). Brakes and hydraulic items are often high grade. Others may have different experiences. I'd like your feedback. What is your experience with Harbor Freight Tools? Moses
