The Pittsburgh line of toold HF sells are just as good as Craftsman at much cheaper prices, and have a better replacement warranty because they won't try giving you a refurbished tool if something breaks or malfunctions. The general rule of thumb about HF is don't buy anything that moves such as electric tools, etc. Their hammers, hand tools, etc are a good value. Most people who down HF hate that they import foreign products, but unless you buy Snap-On tools they won't be made in America either, or of any better quality.

Tool Man, I was looking at buying a sander and dust collector from them, but was worried about the quaility, I was told that you could get a "lifetime" warranty and if it breaks, quits, whatever they would replace it. It wasn't a salesperson that told me that, any thoughts?

The salesman was correct, a friend of mine bought a motor from them with a lifetime warranty to use in a go-cart, and has blew up two of those engines and just has them rwplaced when they give out. If the price is right this is a good plan.

I meant to say the person other than the salesperson was correct in that you can buy the lifetime warranty and use the HF products in a disposable manner if need be.

In my experience with HF, most of the powered tools are underpowered. They are easy to burn up. However, the warranty makes up for that. Now, if you plan on using them for fine carpentry, buy a better powered tool that is built more precise.

Tool Man & widkat,

Thanks for the information, I found a sander made by Rigid that I like and it got good reviews. It's about fifty dollars more than the one at HF, but has more "options". Home depot had some on sale but sold out. I think I will still get a small dust collector from HF and try it out.
