N/T, not tried. Some of the things you didn't mention that HF has a good deal on is the orange Chicago Electric 4" grinder (only difference between the 4" and 4 1/2" is the guard around the disc, that and about $10, every thing else is the same- motor AMPs, etc), Earthquake impact wrenches, Chicago Electric porta-band saw, Auto dark welding helmet and Chicago Electric extended nose die grinder. They have some good deals on some other items too but things like welders have gotten some bad review. The Earthquake impact wrenches are a ripoff of the IR "Thundergun" but they did a good job copying it, the things are brutes and the 1/2" is a tough customer, at least mine has been. Basically I would not buy anything that would be likely to cause personal injury if it breaks or a tool that could damage the item it is meant for if it fails. Things like torque wrenches would be an example, an erroneous torque wrench could cause a lot of grief plus a lot of lost money so go with the quality stuff for tools like these.
