Whatever you do, don't repeat the mistake I made Saturday.
Some company came to town, rented a big hall, and sold crap.
I bought 16 forstner bits for $10. Some cut poorly, some don't cut at all.
I don't have the heart to throw them out, but I probably should.
My set looks exactly like the cheap set in the Grizzly catalog. I sure hope
it isn't the same crap. $10 was bad enough, but $25 would be that much
The worst buy though was the reciprocating saw for $10. I don't need one
very often, and I figured "how bad can it be?" Well, I found out; it broke
the first time I used it. The zinc casting were so thin they flexed like
cheap plastic. Odd thing is, I don't see how they can make even make crap
like that for $10. I mean, there is all the castings, the motor, box,
shipping, etc. It is a pity they couldn't have made it just a bit better.
I did buy some decent clamps for $8 and an angle grinder that has held up so
far for $7.
