Just look at my shop tour you will know I am not afraid of HF. But you have to be picky about their stuff…

14” band saw was good, a G0555X came up used for less money not long after buying it though. Still kicking myself. #34706 even at full price is tough to beat. Good machine, fair to middling stand. Typical of the Jet 1236 that it copies.
12” SCMS, took some fiddling and a new blade. But it rocks… My only complaint is typical of ANY slider of this general design, it has a HUGE space required for the slides.
Bench Top mortiser. Glad this didn’t cost me actual cash, but I don’t hate it. Much better than a mortising attachment. Just flaky fence design…
2 HP dust collector.

All in all, my shop wouldn’t be even a fraction of what it is now without HF. I am very glad I have the tools I do…
