Didn't have to wait days for shipping & pay shipping costs, big time saver there. Home Depot was on the way to work at the time. Could see what I was getting, no questionable made in China stuff.
We've got Harbor Freight stores all over the Phoenix area (and most of the west coast - and I know they're in a lot of other places as well). I think I pass by two of them on my way to work and back.
I've never had an issue with any of their tools (or drill bits, etc) - other items, yes (I have a solar shed light that -does not- work at all), there's issues, but for me most of their stuff is pretty good; just like anything else out of china - some good, some bad.
