The woman bought mt the 301 piece socket set when I started this project. I was fully expecting to toss this junk the first time a socket busted, but it has actually held up pretty well. The included combination wrenches pull a severe vacuum, it doesn't have a 1/4" drive extension, or have 18mm sockets in 1/2" drive (for suspension components). Other than those minor complaints, it's been a good set. Nothing broke, and I haven't rounded or stripped anything with them.

I have purchased two of those in the past and have used them almost every day. My only tip with those is to make sure you purchase a spare set or two of carbon brushes.... they do wear out fast.

I like their 3/8 and 1/2 ratchets. They have been abused pretty bad by me. Especial with a cheater pipe, and I have yet to break one and they still work prefectly. I broke a Craftsman and Husky one with a cheater pipe. Yet the ratchets from HB keep on working perfectly

Get you a breaker bar and quit breaking ratchets. If the breaker bar won't get it, apply a little heat.

I like their tool boxes.  For what you are paying, they are heavier and the sliders are nicer than the Craftsman one I have, unless I'm sure you go their pro series.

I've bought quite a few items there over the years. Good prices.
Hobart 135 amp wire feed welder with cart for $450 IIRC(smokin' deal, I think)
I've got that auto darkening helmet, works well, but it's kinda sensative while welding(flashes lighter and darker, makes it hard see the puddle)
Parts washer was a waste
I've got the aluminum 3000lb cap jack, works good, wish I would have got the bigger one tho.
They also sell stuff like crushed walnut shells for my blaster

As a welder, this is something I never go cheap on. I run a Speedglas 9002x.
