I'm looking at a 3-ton floor jack at Harbor freight........https://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-steel-heavy-duty-floor-jack-with-rapid-pump-68048.html
I have a few coupons so I'm hitting Harbor Freight for a torque wrench and a few other goodies.
I have a couple of their torque wrenches. Work well.
I have a lot of their stuff. Even if you only use it a few times and it breaks it’s usually so cheap that it doesn’t matter.
I have a dremel knock off that I bought at harbor freight in a pinch. It works better than my actual dremel....
I've heard hf tq wrenches brand new have been calibrated way off. Like 20ftlbs on some 3/8 models
That's enough to snap bolts or studs depending on the material.
I bought a 1/4" drive torque wrench from them......that was 4 years ago......does all my torque specs on the Harley.....never had an issue with it......it's been the best $20 I ever spent!
That can't be good!
Yeah. Maybe a torque wrench or any precision tools aren’t the best idea.
Test lights are great . I put one of those cheap predator 5.5 motors on a log splitter 2.5 years ago and it ran great. I was surprised.
I pick stuff up there now and then. As long as you understand that they are probably “disposable” tools, they got some great deals.
Don’t know if I’d trust a torque wrench, but I’ll second Bogunn on the Dremel knock off. VERY surprised. And I’m frequently using a heat gun I bought there probably 10 years ago.
Yeah, the only thing is that the chuck is a little cheap on the dremel knockoff but as long as you’re easy with it there’s no issue. The motor on them is impressively strong.
A crew from the largest home remodeling business in our area was working on a family members house. They were using Harbor Freight oscillating saws. I had to inquire because these guys are pros.
They said they get over twice the life out of the Harbor Freight stuff. And it’s about 1/3 the cost or less.
That speaks volumes on the quality of some of their stuff.
For any gun guys on the forum keep an eye on Palmetto State Armory for Black Friday deals. They are unbeatably cheap all the time but they really have the deals on Black Friday.
Thanks SO MICH for that tip. Not a gun nut, but I believe in keeping and arming bears.
No, really. Great link.
I’ve built some AR’s and bought a lot of stuff from them.
I’ve never armed any bears though..... lol
Kalifornia is working on declawing da bears. Plz send halp
