I so wish I could find the original source for this, because whoever put this together spent some time on it and it's brilliant:

Just in case you don't know where the concept came from. And they're not quite that bad. Not quite.

Harbor Freight is the home of "how could you possibly screw up... oh". Having said that, I've gotten some decent use out of the cheap-ass electric winch I bought from them (Even if the first thing that happened was that they safety limit switch broke off), and their house brand "Central Machinery" stationary tools appear to use the exact same castings as Grizzly tools, although Grizzly seems to put a little more care into post-casting machining, bearings, and the other ancillary stuff.

And Harbor Freight is not the bottom of the "cheap tools" barrel. I'd point to the Illinois Industrial Tool stuff that used to look like such a deal at Fairfax Lumber & Hardware but put me off cheap tools on a number of fronts...

Harbor Freight is definitely hit-or-miss, but the price reflects that, and I've spent a lot of cash there.
