I suggest buying the highest-quality item if it's from Harbor Fright. I think their cheapos are essentially expendable, but their better-grade items seem to be OK. I've bought their "magnesium" 1/2" drill and it worked just fine (until someone stole it . . .), and whatever their best 4.5" angle grinder was at the time, which is still working well after several years of fairly hard use. One thing I always do to anything from HF with gears is to apply more grease before using it the first time - the Chinese are too parsimonious with their stinky brown grease, so a good dollop of better grease should prolong its life.
