BUT

I have been eyeing up the tool boxes for a while. the tools i need for this job keep growing in both size and quantity and are getting heavy. plus i have to wheel my box all over the plant. so the little guy i bought when i started was not cutting it much.

bought this set up except instead of the side cabinet i just got a side table. if needed i can always add a side cabinet.




but....i forgot the 3in hole saw

I think there is a mix of both. i have broken a couple harbor fright tools on their 1st use. but some of their stuff i have had for a long time and now days it gets used daily.

imo anything that needs a bit of force, like your bigger wrench's, air tools, or pry bars, are not wroth it. little tools to do little jobs aren't bad.



i cracked a crow bar on the 1st use.

Re: Important

I'm with Sam, you just have to be careful.

I wanted a small drill bit set that was on sale for setting up a cordless drill set in the RV and some Phillips screw driver bits. Nothing crazy, just stuff to make general repairs a little easier at the campsite.

I do like the little 2.99 led work lights, nice to have in the garage/rv/car to see better.

I get a free screwdriver set/tape measure/meter when I buy anything there.

Re: Important

if it's something I need on a regular basis, I don't buy HF.

if it's something I need to last one job, or may use once a year, it's fine.

except tubing flares. buy the good stuff, because those suck balls.

I really want one of those bench vise style brake flaring tools with the turret style die. Those look pimptastic.

Thanks to OEM Sean R, and a plethora of cordless drills now, I set up a small kit for the RV.

very likely.

I see that the new badlands winches are advertising a 6HP series wound motor.

so they probably start selling the new hotness after they built all the smittybuilt ones.
