    I love that place. My greatest pickup: a 4 foot drywall square that's a few degrees off.

    I have a max parts count for HF tools. 6 seems to be a good number in my experience.

    As I carried a pair of Super Special $2.49 bar clamps to the register, the bars fell out of both of them. After trying 6 of them I gave up and bought a box batteries with my 20% off coupon. Tool Porn. Love it.

    Bought a pressure washer wand once, it lasted for 2.56784 secs which is as long as it took the pw to get to 4k psi and make the gun explode in my hand. The wand was rated at 5500psi btw

    That place is great, I'm an auto mechanic and have plenty of expensive tools, but there is that one set of 1/2 drive shallow well chrome sockets from harbor freight. Been using em for 3 years now with an impact wrench, and they are still going.

    Some of their stuff lasts, and some of it's crap, but for the price, it is usually worth the gamble.

    Just bought a couple pairs of these for my truck. Pretty much the exact same as anything else out there except less than half the price. Same weight capacity also. With a 25% off coupon I got a really good deal.
