I totally agree with this herk. One or two time use on tools, Harbor Freight. Otherwise go for better.I have a snap-on rollaway box & I'll be the first to tell you U.S. stuff is better but for my emergency tool kits I pack for my boat & camp trailer is all harbor freight stuff & a lot of times you just figure the cost of the tool into whatever job you're doing I put tile in our downstairs room & bought their tile saw & it worked just fine my next project is making a generator cart & harbor freight is gonna be my source
I use their little 1/2`` fountain pumps for my e&f setups about half the price of the hydro shop ones that are made in China tooI totally agree with this herk. One or two time use on tools, Harbor Freight. Otherwise go for better.
Harbor Freight is like the poor person's wish list and sometimes, "OK I need to do this job, and I don't care if it breaks my tools"
Agreed. Bought 8 more 158 gph pumps, they run just as good if not better than Active Aqua. $11.99?! That’s less than half the price of anything else in its range and they are reliable.They're is definitely some deals to be had at HF, just depends really on how hard you go on your stuff most times, I've got mad love for their pumps, I've yet to have one fail
Back in the day 60s hb was a school for tool repair , then they started making stuff.. most there stuff was knock offs of black and decker, Stanley and etc.The love hate relationship of harbor freight tools. Some products are awesome some are just plain garbage.
The good thing is they'll refund or replace all that stuff for the most part.
Helped my buddy tile his bathroom and he bought a tile saw from them and it worked, lol. But it wasn't the straightest of lines cut.
Then my job in Oregon had an old wood working shop that I used to make parks signs out of 2 x 8 cedar. All the tools were harbor freight tools from the 90s. Planer, router, circular saw and sanders. Still working after all those years. But everything was made better as you travel back in time.
Yeah...when ya only got 10 good years left in you...lol...you don't need the best...the reality of getting old.Back in the day 60s hb was a school for tool repair , then they started making stuff.. most there stuff was knock offs of black and decker, Stanley and etc.
There saws are all off a 16th ..you have to adjust for it ..lol
Some of it is good and getting better.... I think alot has to do with your age also..
When I was in my 20s I got nothing but the best....
Now I look at cost and how much I'll really use it in the next 10 year's....
I would say I buy a 3rd of my stuff there now...
