For me....almost anything : "Drillmaster" sucks! Chicago Electric tools are pretty good. The cheapo dremel tools are completely worthless...as are the $4 dolly wheels.

I think it might be much more helpful to highlight the tools that are going to cost you....although both are helpful.

The 4 in angle grinder, and all the drills are junk, any rachet I would be leary of but I did by a set of impact wrenches that I can cut and bend for special use tools. The most dangerous p.o.s. I bought from them was the compound miter saw it broke at the top arm and I had a 10" blade and motor coming at me at full speed. They redesigned it leading me to believe somebody got hurt by one..

And as I said.
There is an active already existing thread that has covered this information already!

This thread is regarding tools that don't suck. Doug's is about ones that do

See, the thing about poisonous snakes and mushrooms is, you don't try to identify all the non-poisonous ones, but the ones that are.

Why would you approach potentially harmful...( be it physical or financial) tools otherwise?

EDIT: Just in case there are any real smart alecks out there, yes ...I know, there are no poisonous snakes in America, and indeed, poisonous snakes are extremely rare, but I took the liberty to use that designation because, while not absolutely correct, is a generally accepted and commonly misapplied moniker for VENOMOUS snakes.

Did I say I was going to pop anyone?
Yes! Several times.
Did you say it here? Not exactly. So like I said your innocent looking continual suggestive innuendo and references actually make perfect sense to some of us.

Please do not drag your garbage here and pollute this Forum with what you do outside of it!

Here is the link: http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/showthread.php?t=33986
Here is part of the discussion:
There are 2 or HF Grinders.
One of them is pretty Good. The Chicago tools 60373 5 amp Supposedly you will not go through them like underwear. 22 bucks

The Drill master 60625 4.3 amp is garbage at 13.99.

I got this info from Poboy Kartman and Mach@large.

But this thread is about the tools that DO suck. Already commented in the don't suck thread.

It seemed all encompassing to me that is all.:thumbsup:

But I will play along... Pittsburgh® Automotive - Item#98076
2.5 CFM vacuum pump. Now there is a tool that sucks.
Also Item #61317 5 gal wet dry Vacuum/ Blower
This tool sucks and blows!

how about the 12V Auto Heater / Defroster With Light, that turd has some of the WORST reviews on the site, that being said, anytime I dont know about a HF tool, I go straight to the reviews

Ok I was just looking at my Super Coupons.
Item 68854 is a 32 pieces Polished Wrench set.

1 Question for the Americans here:
Has anybody EVER used a 9/32, 11/32or 13/32 Wrench?
Right? I mean these are just the ones in your wrench drawer that make it harder to Find the 3/8 or 1/2 Wrench your looking for.:furious2:
This set only goes up to 11/16 I would be happier with a 30 Piece set that included a 3/4" Wrench.

But for 18 bucks I think I will buy it and throw away the useless ones!

Just save the useless ones for when you get frustrated with a project, and just feel the urge to hit something with a hammer or throw it as far as you possibly can. Now you have something to use!

That is Funny! I used to be that guy, when I was your age.
At 42 it has now been a couple few years since I threw a Hammer.
I beat a Rototiller, tipped it over, kicked it and threw tools at it a few years ago!

9/32" and 11/32" yes I have used them on multiple occasions and still do on my cars with points, I don't own anything old enough for 13/32" though. (yes 13/32" was a common size)
