The 14” bandsaw is a spectacular buy. I can do anything as easily and precisely as any other brand, The 6” jointer (being discontinued ) is a real jem. Had these for years, no problem. The 10” csms is dirt cheap and accurate. Pleanty of power. Needs to be set up, but all tools do. The 2 hp dc is a wonderful buy but get the Wynn environmental cannister filter. The drill presses are good, the above-mentioned wood lathe is excellent, the oscillating spindle sander is a baqrgain and a super addition. Trim routers are a bargain, work well, and are cheap enough to dedicate a task to one and leave it. I have 3 and want 3 more. The Pittsburg bar clamps (F-style) are as good as anything 4 times as expensive, Drill bits, etc. are all good for the money. Theeir oscillating multi tool is fabulous and is $20. They even have a new planer that looks good.

Most of the stuff to swtay from is really cheap and obvious. Most if not all the power tools represent exceptional buys. All the things I mentioned, I have and use regularly. I like almost everything they have and thqat’s because I have gotten more than my money’s worth many times over. Interestingly enough, I haven’t had a single tool failure or dissatisfaction from Harbor Freight.
