like others have said. depends on the tool. i nabbed an impact gun on clearance ($20)at wally world. supposed to have 250# torque. i cant even break my lugs off and i put them on by hand at 110#. ugh
i have tons of stuff from both NT and HF.
the best are the misc tools and trays etc. magnetic trays: $4, dead blow: $5, small ratchets: $5, airhose reel: $15 etc...
the list goes on. for my everyday tools that take a beating i get the best i can afford.
