HAHA! I have a few of those! HF stuff seems to work fine with not all the hardware attached.

Looks like Garbage Freight strikes again! I'm so happy that I know that a 6 year old worked his *** off all day so he could afford a bowl of rice! I had a similar issue with a sandblaster that I bought from them. It was a pretty decent piece of equipment, until the ball valve at the nozzle end decided to never be able to close again. They sell replacement parts, but F that. I'll go buy a brand new ball valve that someone got paid $24 an hr + medical benefits for their entire family and a 401k plan to retire on cause they assembled a quality piece of metal that won't fail like a cheap peice of plastic. Thanks Nafta!

Some of their **** is really worth while, the things you will use once and have no need to spend 10x the money on a good model, or the really simple things that you can't really go wrong with, nothing complex. For instance, a set of bushing press tools. It's a giant c-clamp thing with 3 different cast bases... can't go wrong there.

The thing is his neighbor does not have a sweatshop job so now he is dead from starvation. Sweatshops save lives. Shut them down and you kill children.
