If it is brass, it will last longer than most HF tools.

Actually, I have lots of their tools. Mission Critical tools require trusted brands. But if the tool is a hopefully used only once, go with HF.

Wisdom. I buy stuff from HF, but try to avoid anything with moving parts.

Oh, and I have a grandson that works for them and I get the occasional deal on returned and damaged, but repairable goods.

I had a sliding mitre saw from them for a long time. The switch crapped out and I found one from another manufacturer that worked. It took me a minute to get it wired in there correctly and I used it for a few more years until finally enough safety features broke I replaced it with a Rigid.

My folks got me a hammer drill from there that I think I still have and it still runs. It didn't have enough grunt to do the decking on my concrete porch and that was when I made my first Rigid purchase.

For anything needing precision though, I avoid them. I find that even my Rigid mitre saw doesn't make perfect 90's and it is annoying. I've really gotta work with it to get it right and I can't use the preset notches.

I am selective about what kind of items I get from them. Hey their epoxy is cheap and very good. I have a magnifying lamp from them...it was $20, 8 years ago...I use it every week for something, reading brass stamps on cases, fly tying, re-furbing a pipe....lots of stuff...never even had to replace the bulb...Knock on wood

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.
