Oh of course it's not legal. But the question is more whether the traffic agents in that precinct enforce it.

I know I'm gonna hear crap for this but I'm a big proponent of using a platepuller. Knock on wood, it's served me well for over 2 years now.


Also I don't know how many of you know this but I saw this today on hamilton ave right next to the Brooklyn Lowes



When i lived in CA I went into one. All of my other buys have been on line. I've had pretty good experiences with them so I'm excited that they're coming here.

Harbor freight is 100% Chinese shit, but sometimes you just need something, regardless.

I think their tools are made from recycled Yugo fenders.

Maybe this pic will help. There ARE cars parked in front of the bike. Although I did notice no plate on the bike.

i work on 7th, 38/39. i parked there for a while, and i pulled my plate. then my bike got towed. it cost me less than $500 and about 4 hours of my work day. so i don't park there any more. i think one tire might have been touching the white line; maybe that's why they picked my bike out of the 4 that were parked there. regardless i don't feel like risking it again to find out.

you'll notice that the vehicles parked there (mostly) have commercial plates, which is what those spots are designated for.

Depending on how much you like to walk parking at the Hippodrome is awesome. 43rd and close to 6th.

How much do they get for parking a MC? Found this link, but don't understand the pay schedule:
http://www.parkfast.com/content/park...r-District.jsp

Is it $1/day for a bicycle, or $20/day? Are MC charged as cars, or bicycles, or other?

There's a Harbor Freight down the block from my place in FL. You have to pick and choose. Surprisingly, this 13 drawer roll-away is good quality, for the money. I got it for $359 , with a coupon.

I have a bunch of HF hand tools that I keep on the boat, but they are for emergencies only. I wouldn't depend on most Harbor Freight tools. I keep them in a Plano dry storage box wrapped in a towel that's been doused with WD40. I bought a 4.5" angle grinder that fell apart the first time I used it. My $7 heat gun (with coupon) works great for heat-shrink tubing and for softening stubborn hoses that are stuck to fittings. If it fails, I'm out $7.

HF is good for things like bungie cords, various storage solutions and specialty tools you'll only use once in a while. I just bought this planer for $45. I need it to square some lumber for a workbench top. After I'm done with this project, I'm sure it'll sit for unused for a long time.

The Garage Journal Harbor Freight Pass Fail thread is a good resource.

I agree about picking & choosing. Some of their stuff is suprisingly useful for the money.

Thanks for the info.

I won't be commuting regularly on the bike, just on the occasional especially nice day.

Preferably...Tuesdays.

That's their "ProLine." The regular ones are made of reclaimed pot metal, sawdust, and the blood, sweat, and tears of Chinese pre-teens.

HF is a great source for tools you just need to use once, for which there's no work around/substitute. I wish I'd have thought about it before I paid $12 at lowes for a 2 1/4" hole saw that I need to cut precisely ONE hole in the 1/2" particle board of my new bathroom cabinet/sink in order to install it. Probably could have got a SET at HF for $2.99. Then again, it wouldn't have had 2.25" only 2" and 2.5".
