The biggest gem is the 2 HP DC. There is a coupon for it in this month’s Popular Woodworking edition.
The F clamps are great, and I also like the aluminum bar clamps. The pipe clamps are pretty good. I actually use the cheapie plastic quick grips, but they are not as much of a bargain as they seem.
The pin nailer is fine. The brad nailer is a good tool, but the hammer is bigger than other brands.
The hex key sets are great
I have the drill press table which I like a lot
Can’t go wrong with their acid brushes and chip brushes
The roller stands are not as good quality as others, but much more bang for the buck. I use them a lot.
I have an old 14.4V drill that keeps on working. I don’t use it much any more, but it still works just fine.
My HF Dial Indicator and mag base works great. I use it all the time for machine setup
I have their plastic router plate. It’s as good as any other of the same material.
The tap and die set is okay.
Their heat gun/paint stripper is a fine tool

I did pick up a framing square that wasn’t square. Not on my HF all time hits list.
