Some tools from Harbor Freight is OK, usually the stuff made of big chunks of steel or iron. The air tools are OK for occasional use, but their electrics leave something to be desired. I have a 9 inch grinder that lasted about 20 hours, and their heat guns die very fast. A 12 volt pump lost the impeller after one use, though I will salvage the motor for a future boat project. The quality of the wrenches and sockets they sell is much better than a few years back though.

For an oscillating sander, I like the Rigid, from Home Depot - nice big table, well priced, and gives you the option of using a belt in addition to the spindle. I have used it for a couple of years now with no trouble.
