Bingo! I have been buying from HF for +25 years (started when they were mail order only) and am in generally very pleased w/ price/value. I'm not a pro but have built several cars from the ground up and could not have afforded the great tools w/o help from HF. Several of my original 25 yr old tools are still going strong. That reminds me, I think I will oil my old HF pneumatic tools. Probably due after 25 yrs.
