My list
90 degree die grinders... I have 10 on a rack with all diffenent tooling installed.
Hydraulic table..... one of the handiest things I have ever bought from HF.
Abrasive tumbler. Hundreds of hours and still works fine.
Impact sockets.

Oh and best of all .... their line of netting tarps is second to none. I think they actually screwed up and made something that is top of the line and very robust.

I bought their bad joint remover kit and it worked fine - very heavy duty.

Their cheapest corded reciprocating saw for under $20. Used it to cut up a Chevy Cruze before taking to a scrap yard, Thought I would sell the saw on Craigslist afterwards, but it did so good I'm keeping it.

Their magnetic-base tilt-angle gauge is decent, compared to the much more expensive, name-brand, grossly inaccurate, U.S.-made one I bought earlier.

Agree that their (sometimes) freebie volt-ohmmeter is surprisingly good, considering. So are my freebie scissors.

A few other things I've bought there rate approximately zero stars.

Any of their impact sockets. Still have my first set from 5 yrs ago and beat the snot out of them. Still look new. Their bottle jacks have been very good for me too.

Air tools. I have a die grinder I paid $6 for decades ago. I also have a 1/2 earthquake impact on my crimping table I use every day. Impact sockets are great too.

Oh forgot another one... 31 years ago I ordered their 1 hp floor mount drill press. Just handed it down to my son this past winter. Not the most powerful or robust thing you ever seen but it lived through my abuse.
