Seems a little closed-minded!
I try to support the local merchants as much as possible, but stores
like HD do provide good deals at times. In some areas HD or Lowes are
the only source for variety and selection of good tools and equipment.
Ive always liked Lowes selection of tools much better than HD
But, last week HD had a $25 dollar discount to be applied at the cash
register for any power tool costing between $150 (I think) and $250. The
Rigid spindle sander cost $200. This is the one several magazines called the
pick of the litter. I bought one for $175 and I still think that was a good
price. I'm impressed with the machine too, although I have not tried the
belt sanding attachment.
I bought a 14.4 volt Dewalt right angle drill from them for $95 one time. I
couldn't buy two new batteries for that price.
HD usually gets the nod when it comes to power tools, especially with the
Ridgid lifetime warranty. Hand tools are a toss up... The Kobalt series of
hand tools seem to be pretty good tools.

WOW, to bad I don't need a drill press (got one, Ridgid BTW).
But went to Lowes a couple of weeks ago and was buying
Dewalt 12" 80 tooth saw blade for Miter saw. At the checkout
there was a display with 2 of the same Dewalt blades for the price
of one...... Did a double take, thought I was seeing things...
but that was not the case. Told the clerk to put the one back
and give me 2.

Never mind. My brain is someplace else.
(Actually Harley makes some beautiful, but slightly overpriced bikes in my
opinion, but that's neither here nor there I suppose.)
