Not really profesional grade stuff, but good enough for my needs.
Let me know how you like that bench grinder. I have been looking for one. Looks like you have a well stocked workshop. There is nothing wrong with Craftsman tools. Like you, for my own personal use I try to only buy Craftsman and Kobalt tools because they are affordable and I think the quality is still there. Also they both have lifetime warrenties. If I was making my living by using tools everyday I could justify spending the coin for Matco, Mac, and Snap-On.

I also snagged a closeout REI Ridgeline 65 as I might be doing some backpacking with Otto this summer.
I looked at the Gregory line, but they get such mixed reviews (great or hate and a lot of durability troubles). Deuter looks like a nice option, but I don't know too many people with them yet which made me curious to hear your feedback.

Hoping the Black Diamond does good as a replacement for my Lodestone (finally getting tired after 15 years or so of use).

I've actually used it a couple of times now seems to be good for light & med. duty jobs, might not be enough torque for any really hard steel, something pressure intensive that is, again if your using it on light steel or aluminum its actually heavy enough to hold itself in place without having to bolt it down. + additional wheels are readily available, already picked up a course & fine brush h a buffer/polisher.

Of all the things I've picked up the band saw is my biggest worry, as far as being "stout" enough for what I need, but time will tell. Oh I think the drill press is my favorite so far!
