I've got one of these and it works very well. Had it over a year now.

Have one as well. For the casual user, this fits the bill. Would not depend on any of my Harbor Freight tools for heavy use, but for something you use once in a while, they can be a good deal.

Picked one of these up a little over a year ago, it's still alive which says something. Sees pretty heavy use at least once a month and lighter work once a week. It smells like burning electronics a lot of the time but hasn't failed me yet.

I'm buying another as a spare.

At this price buy three and you can keep one for cutoff wheels, one for grinding wheels, and one for sanding wheels.

I'm in for one. I was planning to buy a more expensive grinder, but for the little I will be using it, this makes much more sense

Like people are saying, this isn't for production work but for occasional use it is great for the price. All you have to do is try to cut a heavy chain with a hacksaw to see the value in this.

Got one a few years ago for one project I was doing where I had to cut some steel angle and flat bar. Figured that if it only made it thru that, it was worth the price. The thing held up surprisingly well, & is still going. Worth getting and having ready in your kit for the first time you have to cut a serious piece of metal, as it beats the snot out of using a hacksaw. (Abrasive blades for your other saws are nice to have, too.)

I can't be the only one who glanced at the picture quickly and though it was a deal for a Slave 1

Shipping and sales tax (they charge it even if there are no HF in your state) will add about $9 to the cost.

My rule of thumb is to buy cheap tools (like this) the first time. If/when I wear it out, I can make the decision to buy a better quality one based on how long it took to wear out the first one.

That said, I'm still on my original HF miter saw, circular saw, sander, drill press, shovels, clamps, wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers...

Sweet, now I can grind angles.
