OK, so I'm not one to cheap out on tools. But, I went to Harbor Freight to pick up the cheapest drill that I could find to polish a set of wheels I picked up on Ebay and not use one of my good drills. $14 "Drill Master" survived 4+ hours of torture. Got really hot a couple of times but never missed a beat. Definitely worth the price.

Only bought the one, and I actually got it at the flea market. Always need that damn 10mm, stupid thing. I cant stand it, I prefer American sizes and that doesn't match anything.
I got my box of "spares", but I've never had a #10 spare.
And yeah, I'm sure I'll find my other one now that I have this one.

I love those cheap ass Harbor Frieght tools, sometimes they're the best.
I bought a harbor frieght "drill master" grinder for $4.99. 4.99?!
I've had thing for like 5 years put it threw hell and it hasn't even started to slow down. I've killed makita and dewalts, but my little HF POS is still trucking.

I burnt the bearings out grinding frame rivets for the tank relocation. It lasted a few small jobs after that. I can handle that though for the price.

Whats been added of late. Been shopping Porta Bands for some time, only found 3 brands Milwalkee, DeWalt and Bauer. Went Bauer because it was 375 bucks less than the Milwalkee and don't much care for DeWalt. Rather have found an old used Milwalkee. Also snagged this old home made tubing bender, works great, has limitations but was built by a super cool old feller that is a buddy of mine.

Bought a weed wacker today. First time ever. My old house had a small yard and I just trimmed by hand. Been at the current place for around 10 years now and always just got real close with the mower and sprayed the rest, lol. I guess I finally just got tired of having to move all the trucks, cars and trailers just to have a decent looking mow job.

25cc Ryobi. It was cheap and I expected it to perform like a cheap one. It's actually a powerful little sucker. It took everything I could throw at it, even saplings were no trouble.

Well I got no answers to my question. After doing a bunch of reading, and watching YouTube videos. The HF one got a bunch of good reviews, people that own them are happy with them. So I was at my local (35 miles away) HF to get a new pair of sandblasting cabinet gloves, and they had one of the 3in1 tools in stock. It seems to be good quality, it is a heavy bastard. 250lbs or more. It was half the price of the other one I was looking at, all the same functions, and it is a 30 inch.
