Default Mennards "Master Force" tools.

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with the "Master Force" tools that Mennards is now selling. I had not been looking at tools there much recently but spent a little drool time in a nearby Mennards this week and got to looking at some of these. I was a little surprised at the quality of finish most of them had compared to some of the other brands of lower cost power tools they have carried before. They didn't have the cheap look and feel that we sometimes find in less expensive tools. Has anybody had a chance to put some work to any of these Master Force tools?

I don't but Menard's has become my son's "home away from home" since that is where he purchases most of his stuff. I'll ask him.

I shop quite often at Menards, mostly in Escanaba. This Summer I purchased a "Master Force" 36" wide tool cabinet. It's built like a tank, far more rugged than the Craftsman tool chest that it replaced.
