The power tools i use are all from Harbor Freight, I use a 4 1/2'' angle grinder that ran me roughly 23 bucks. the drill i use runs off a 18v battery, and can hold up to a 3/4 bit, i can use it constantly for 2hrs and it does grate it ran me roughly 45 bucks, the welder i use is a non gas 90amp mig welder, it can run wire either a 0.030 or 0.035. the gag wire i use is 0.035 i find that its easier to weld with and its gives me the strongest welds. the welder ran me 105 bucks and the 1lb of wire runs me 14 bucks.

all these tool i listed i have been very happy with and am happy to use them in my shop.

hope this helps, thanks

There's a hitch, if you break one socket you have to send the WHOLE set back in with the broken socket and it has to be in original package.

Harbour freight isn't too bad with hand tools or welders, but I prefer the tools I got from my school, all NAPA Carlyle. Got all sorts of goodies from that ill post a review video sometime.

Harbor Freight tools are good for there price, but don't last as long as others in my experience. Though if you're on a tight budget and need tools, these are the tools for you.

I just bought a couple of socket sets there, needed some 12pt sets that I don't use much. I was impressed with them, first impression is they are decent quality. Time will tell once I start using them.

I have an 8 inch drill press from the and with a 1/2 inch bit it can drill through 3/8 inch plate in no time at the lowest RPM without struggling, very good for 60 bucks.

Harbor Fright is a good place to get stuf but (N)o (A)uto (P)arts (A)vailable is the worst and most expensive.
