Yeah the corded ones from HF probably should be 1/4" drive. THe cordless ones from HF have way more power. They'll take off axles nuts that arent rusted on.

I have had the opposite experience but only used two cordless HF guns and one corded. The corded gun is awesome.

Going to harbor freight today to get one of the 20 ton presses. Anyone picked up anything else great lately?

The 20 ton is excellent.
Heavy duty with lots of vertical adjustment.

Just a reminder; Harbor Freight is having a big-*** sale for the next few days and 25% off (except for nearly everything you want).
You can use it for this impact socket set, which I use for most of what I do.
I also use this ratcheting breaker bar often. The selector is a little finicky, but it hasn't broken, despite me doing my best impression of a male silverback while using it.

Yeah.

I've gotten 3 years of occasional use out of mine. Used about4 or 5 times throughout summer. The top is just now showing signs of wear.
I also take pretty good care of it. For the price I'd buy another one in a heartbeat, or at least a replacement top.

So does hte 25% off apply to the $70 price to make it like $53?

I haven't got a clue. I don't even remember what I paid for it, but if I had to guess $50 sounds about right.

I tried it online, and it appears it will work for the canopy tomorrow.

Home depot has these husky 1.5t aluminum jacks for $50 right now. As far as I can tell, they're just rebranded harbor freight jacks. My local HD had 9 of them left last night, up front in the christmas clearance section.

I keep waiting for this jack (http://www.harborfreight.com/automot...ump-60678.html) to go on sale, but it never does, and of course the discount coupons don't apply to floor jacks.

Yes, winning. Have used it for about 4 years now, about 10 times a year, still works great. nothing worn beyond use, yet. With a coupon or sale or whatever I think I paid $60.

I'm buying that cutoff tool next weekend. I expect it will be comparable to their other tools in that line- cheaply made but functional.

I purchased both, the cut off tool seems to lack the Tq of an air tool but I have not put it to actual use yet.

Sander is still in the box. I need to loose a miata from my garage to make room for projects....
