Harbor freight clamps and dust collector are where it's at.

My 20 ton press is awesome for $170, vacuum brake bleeder, super duty hammer drill, I think half my car specialty tools from there. .
I can't walk in that place without buying a ton of stuff. LoL

Hell even their Pittsburgh line of hand tools has improved dramatically in the past 5 years.
Every US big box store has shifted their hand tools, and power tools production overseas.
I had all Lowe's Kobalt hand tools when they were US made up until 2011.

My favorite hand tool set is actually the Dewalt 200 piece I picked up @ Blain's Farm and Fleet.
Very impressed so far, and I've had many different hand tool sets.
Not everything there is junk. I bought an 12 ton bottle jack there a few years ago, and it has been pretty good, especially for the $$.

I flat out will not buy non-US made hand tools, wrenches, sockets, ratchets, etc. All of mine are Proto, Snap-On, SK, Matco, OTC, etc.
Of course, all were purchased at a time when I used them daily for work.

There are some things I would consider buying at HF, like one of their box/pan brakes, or a blast cabinet. I do buy pegboard hooks there.

Absolutely don't buy drill bits, abrasives, precision measuring tools, or cutting tools at HF. They are pure junk.

That ain't a beer belly, son. It's a fuel tank for an ass-whoopin' machine.
