I have purchased quite a few items from Northern Tool . It is safe to say it is my favorite browsing destination. The store does require shopping, they carry tables of cheap trinkets along with well known and trusted names ! I have bought Husqvarna chainsaws and power equipment, a Honda 3000 generator, even the store brand 2000 watt inverter generator. All still performing as advertised ! My local store also has a repair shop to fix all the things I screw up ! I shop the cheap stuff for those one time use specialty items. I don't mind loaning them to my kids and neighbors. You know you are never going to see those tools again !

I buy some stuff from HF and have not had any problems. Yes I know it isn't the best made stuff. One thing that I got and love is the 3 watt rechargeable cordless spotlight. #61777. Bought one for my brother-in-law who we go camping with. Going there today for a few items. Just remember not the best but the price is great.

In Canada we have Princess Auto. The quality of house brand tools Pro Point is close to Craftsman but more like Canadian Tire Master Craft. I also get RV supplies and there 30 amp extensions for AC are better than Camco quality and also on sale and less expensive. they sell lot of brand name items never see any weird names like HF. They give TSC a run for their money and have surpassed them for hydraulic and driveline supplies.

I have been buying from HF since the late 70's. Still have the tap and die set I paid $9.99 for. I also have a 10" mitre saw that I have used to build two treated wood decks with. The 3/4" socket set I bought cost less than the one socket I needed at $49. X2 on bungee cords, tarps, batteries, small hand tools, wheel chocks, air tools etc, etc. Everything I have bought I still have and use with no problems. Tools have a life time warranty that I have used once to replace a gear puller. Not cheap, just inexpensive.

My Craftsman ratchet just bit the dust. It is slipping. ?I think it is over 40 years old. Think I got my money's worth.
