I love harbor freight. My reciprocating saw was $19, drill was purchased for $10 and my drill press was $39 twp or three years ago. Every big sale I usually get something. I need to get a greenhouse when they go back on sale.

hi
I grew up and older buying craftsman tools . Pay more and they last .

Then I found that for those jobs you only use tools once every couple years it was cheaper and easier to rent tools.

Now I buy from harbor freight for less than cost of renting.

And if I think I will never use them again---------- I sell them and get all or most of money back.

Ask freedom sailor about his solar panels.They seem to haVE LASTED LONG TIME

My neighbor was telling me how cheap and easy it was to make them. I showed him F S post "off the grid."-------He went to Harbor freight and bought some to power his lights in green house . He didn't buy batteries since he said he only will have lights on during daylight hours any way. Even startting seeds needs lights same as sunlight. Lee

I had a Craftsman drill for a number of years. I went to skill and have a worm drive saw that has lasted about 30 years. I still use it. The Harbor Freight tools are great for small jobs or to give your crews to use. If they trash them then it's no great loss.

Oh yes... I certainly agree. I was in the trades for many years and always bought the best tools.
And I bought American Made goods often as I could.

I only began buying the china stuff in more recent years. Had to bid jobs right down to the wire to stay competitive.
Easier to pay for a cheapo tool than a quality one.
If they made it through a job or two, they were paid for.
Then I could make plans to step up to better products if the need for them was regular.

It was always odd things about them that went wrong... I bought 3 or 4 hammers to use for finish work... they worked fine, but the rubber on the handle had a strong, odd smell to it!
Twin tank air compressors... the little on-off switch would break on 'em!
I'd just go buy another for $90 which was better than springing $400 for an Emglo.. and I had mangled my Emglo tumbling it off a truck. :-(

The china air guns worked nearly as well as a paslode and were only 10% the cost of a Senco.

It cost me 3 times the amount to rebuild a Milwaukee drill that it did to buy a new china 1/2" drill that was a stupid looking orange color... I used the china drill frequently for 10yrs... it's still around here, somewhere.

Heck, I dunno...

Ahh memories. I used to love my Duofast 350 framing nailer even though after a few hours it felt like it weighed more than I did.

OMG!

Yessiree, I had a Duofast framing gun, myself!

I bought a used one from a fellow who had been framing in Key West before he came back here to Kalifornia... he'd said they were common back that way.
I ran through maybe half a box of nails and bought my first Hitachi... loaned it to a borrowing friend, and never saw it again!
There were no tears.

Using it was just about like framing with a tommyhawk!
and I'll admit to doing that, too! When I was younger and stronger!

Mine got me through some tough times. I dropped it from dormers, off balconies and once it was dragged about seven blocks when a truck bumper snagged the hose. My old pancake compressor was so small I had to wait two or three seconds between shots but she got it done.
