Maybe too simple a question Anything specific? I can tell you their air tools are junk, but that is all I had experience with.

The air tools was what I wanted to know. I missed it on ebay so Im glad I did or I would have had a peice of junk. I'll stay away from the air tools anyways. I always thought they were a good brand but like I said I never had any.

I don't have any personal experience, but I think their power tools (table saws, band saws, etc) are pretty good stuff.

The die grinder I seen was brand new and a very low price for being high quality. I seen jet tools at menards and they looked OK. There was a horizontal band saw I wanted really bad.

I have seen their power tools popping up in wood magazines (both in ads and in shop pictures). I have used the horizontal band saw. Worked pretty well as long as you had the correct blade for the material.
