In the market for an m12 ratchet.

That got me thinking, what knockoff tools have been a win for you guys?

Id love to go full blown Milwaukee, but don’t have that kind of pocketbook at the moment.

Need to to pick up a few things to make life easier. Gotta get away from my old dewalt 18v stuff.
The HF portaband has served me well. I paid the $30 for the 2 yr warranty just in case. It is noisy as all get out but well worth the money
I have the Hercules from HF hammer drill impact driver circular and Reciprocating saw in 20v I'm happy with them. I've only used them for projects around my house so I don't know how they will hold up in a shop environment.
Eastwood mini belt sander has been a solid performer, I don't have enough air to run the pneumatic Dynabrade it's a knockoff of so it's great for my garage

Hazard Fraught 12" disk sander is killer, looks like they changed colors since I bought mine but otherwise the same. Only thing is the dust chute is plastic so if you're grinding lots of steel you're gonna kill it eventually. It's quiet, runs smooth and it will remove material as fast as you wanna shove it into the disk.
