Quest software has one called TOAD that I think is free, or has a free version.

I think Management Studio does a better job though.

If you're interested in execution plans, SQL Sentry has a free tool called Plan Explorer which is a more sophisticated way of examining plans. But it's only good for execution plans.

TOAD has a free version, but I don't know that I'd call it a debugging tool per se, at least not when I played with it several years ago now. Depending on exactly what you are doing, I have found the SQL Server Profiler to be very useful in debugging, especially at the interface between SQL Server and client code.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
