    I am addicted to Harbor Freight Tools

    I am going to have their crap on the side of my house next. I can't stop buying things when I go there and I get like two catalogs a day. Bead blasting cabinets, motor stands, motorcycle lifts, and tons of little clutter stuff. I am sick!!!

    Whats even better is when you have a few friends that work there and they let you know when the "toys" go on sale.

    **edit**

    I just need to get a tube bender and I am set

    For hand tools your better off with something that's a little better quality. I do use some small tools on my rig, things that are easily lost or damaged like the screw drivers, drill bits and such.

    The larger stuff,I think is a good value. I had a media blasting cabinet with a pressure pot, worked great except my compressor was to small for the set up. I also have a similar motorcycle lift and it works well,I like the Harbor Freight one better because it's wider. Mine is narrower and worked best on my Vespa.

    For the small hobbiest workshop Harbor freight is the bomb. I also use thier mini lathe, I bought it used for 200.00 and I'm pretty happy with it.

    Harbor Freight is good for disposable tools and tools you want to modify , pound on but you have to get the Fly Zapper for camping trips. Your kid will have a blast...lol or you can shock yourself...

    Speaking of tools, has anyone tried out the As Seen On TV Metrinch tools?
    You can use them on Metric and Standard nuts and bolts as they grab onto the flat spots as opposed to the corners.

    I have a set, and I've built numerous Lambrettas with it.
    Its my old faithfull tool set. Also works good for stripped nuts and bolt heads...

    Nope, that's one thing I'd prefer to pay extra for.
