Dead after 1 year of use as a shed light.
No it doesn’t. It goes 19+ but not 20+.
Probably the switch, then.
It's the Achilles Heel of all the free flashlights, and the only moving part...
Got this last week with the 20% off Sema coupon. So far really happy, they fit the fasteners nice and overall are are really nice to use. They feel like they are of a much higher quality than my newer craftsman wrenches.
18 Gauge Combo Nailer/Stapler... a BIG pass
I have 2, and bought the 2nd one with a coupon for way less than $24.
Initially finicky as a nailer, until I found out it needs to be run WET, oiled/lubed everywhere.
Because it's a combo stapler, it leaves a wider dent in the wood when shooting braids/nails.
I bought a 2nd "gun" because I often changed nail lengths when building something and it's easier to have 2 setup with different lengths.
I had some concerns when I recently put some staples thru one gun.
Staples are epoxy coated, the nails are not, and I thought that would be a problem.
The epoxied staples ran as smooth as the nails
I used finish nails for small wooden project before I bought these nailers, now things go way faster...
I forgot that I also have this one. I like it as well.
Ok I used the oscillating tool to plunge cut a bunch of outlets. 2 in thick paneling and 1 outside outlet that I had to plunge through: T1-11, old tounge and groove panels, shingles (yes my house is old enough that it had shingle like siding) and the original wood siding. It plowed right through everything without a hitch. I did kill the blade that came with it. Big pass.
The HF roll of double-sided hook/loop tape is very handy:
Good holding strength, resistant to wearing out, and you can cut it to exactly the size you want.
I started using it at work to hold instrumentation and insulation in place, and now always have some in my garage tool box and a roll in all my vehicles.
Their aluminum tape is good but not great:
It's not quite the same as proper industrial grade aluminum tape, which (to be fair) is a genuine miracle product.
It is much better than the aluminized mylar tape that I've found at other big box stores, which as far as I can tell is basically garbage.
Good for all the items that are typically excluded from the coupons like tool storage, welders, generators, jacks/lifts etc.
I bought an aluminum racing type floor jack from them in 2006 and still using it to this day. No leaks and pumps up nicely. Only issue was the rubber pad came off a few years ago. Glued it back and was back in business.
Black Friday coming up! Going to pick up some of those led shop lights and some other shit.
good luck our store sells out of them within hours of unloading them from the truck. every time. since they opened in sept
I still have about $100 hanging around on a HF gift card from a few months ago, I guess I better figure out what to spend it on and get my 15%
Bought the $24 MC wheel cleaning stand yesterday and it works OK so far...handy for the stated purpose on bikes that lack a center stand and for rotating the tire valve to the optimum position on wheels that are difficult to air up.
I was trying to decide between the us general or husky tool boxes. Think I am going to get 44in us general stuff today. Thanks for the posting.
I went with the US General 44" set last year. I don't regret it a bit. I am quite pleased with the set.
44x22 double stack tool box, saved about 140. Little over 700.
At the risk of semi hijacking this thread ( but it does pertain to HF), has anyone ordered parts for their harbor freight motorcycle lift, or can someone point me in the direction of where I might find a replacement part? I was going to check the oil level in the cylinder on my lift last night and the rubber plug had dried so much it tore in half ( The table is 10 years old and has worked flawlessly).
I left the bottom portion of the plug in the cylinder so that I wouldn’t lose oil until I found a replacement. Didn’t know if it was worth trying to order the little piece from HF, or where I could find search the rubber stopper .
