I get most of my hand tools from Brownells or Sears. All of the specialty stuff I've ever needed Brownells had at a fair price. Harbor Freight is good for some things, blasters and spray equipment, some drill bits, some files, but for the most part I'm very selective about what I buy from them. Drill bits and taps are only as good as the cutting oil you use, buy good oil and chemicals. I like the Spyderco ceramic stones, they cut with water and clean up really well. Mine have held up much better than any other stones I've used. Nichols files are almost always great, for special cuts and angles I order from Brownells. Hope this helps.
