I've noticed quite a few of the people here on the Suzuki board do a lot of their own modifications and thought I would share a place I buy some of my shop tools. I drag race and do a lot of my own fabrication on my two cars. I have bought quite of few tools from Habor Freight Tools. www.harborfreight.com
A lot of thier tools are the same brand name tools you can buy elsewhere just cheaper. I have two Dewalt 4-1/2" grinders and one day while ordering I saw they had a 4" grinder on sale for $14.99. I had never bought any of their electric tools and thought, what the hell, $15 is not much, I'll try it out. Well, I have used this grinder for over 2 years not and it is still holding up next to my two $89 Dewalts. Only problem is it does not have a dead man switch. Meaning if you drop the grinder or it kicks back and flys out of your hands it will still be running. You just have to use a little more caution and think about what you are doing first. I have also bought my tubing bender, tubing notcher, grinding wheels, and air tools there too. Have not had any problems with any of the tools I have bought from them yet. Here are a couple of more deals they have:
14" Cut-off Saw - Reduced to $89.99 15 amp motor. (might want to buy a little bit bigger for cutting roll cage tubing) Item number: 35994-7VGA
Hydraulic Pipe Bender (12 ton) - $74.99 Bend 6 different pipes from 1/2" to 2" diameter. Item number: 32888-5VGA (I have used this to make roll cages and tube bumpers using 1-1/4" schedule 40 pipe (1-5/8" OD) It does not flatten the pipe on the bends at all.)
4" Heavy Duty Disc Grinder - $19.99 Item number: 1711-4VGA
Wife thinks I bought a Samurai because it's good on gas. She doesn't know is I am secretly building a Tiny Giant Killer! Now how do I hide the 33" Swampers and do a SPOA next time she goes shopping?
