    There’s even a cage accessory for them and other doo-dads for them.

    Yes, I’ve seen the safety rail kit and the leg outriggers to stabilize them. I don’t think we need to go that high, which is good in our case. I already found out that the unit will roll from the church to the foyer which is through 3 doors and some tight corners.

    We bought one of those Stanley electric staple guns last week. It wouldn’t fire every time so we exchanged it and the new one seems much better. A lot easier than a manual one for sure. Our wrists are thanking us.

    I found this carbide bit for my little CNC on Amazon at a good price, it has 3 flutes and should be reasonable in a variety of materials, I’ll try and remember to post my opinions of its performance.

    Looks like Harbor Freight is getting into the “collector” tools. Snap-on MAC etc have had these kinds of tools for years.

    Who Makes the Best Nailers For Every Job?

    Nice, thanks. Although they went from framing to 18ga and nothing between. I was hoping for 15/16 ga nail guns in the list which is what I am in the market for.

    I own 3 different Milwaukee cordless nailers. Nice to see they came out on top of the reviews in their categories.

    I ordered a full face mask respirator a while ago, but it finally arrived, I decided to go with the (way) more expensive 3M brand instead of a knock off, even if I’d use the same 3M cartridges

    Congrats! Is this one with a shield? You are probally right by buying one from 3M.

    Last fall I bought a knock off respirator. It seems ok too me.

    Which half face respirator can be rinsed down? Sometimes I get so much cement dust on it I need to wash it.

    My order from PA came yesterday. I ordered a electric stapler, drill bits, wire strippers. I also got a box of assorted key ways and set screws.

    Edit: I also got Bondi spreaders. I am try using them for spreading glue.

    Gold is the most ductile and malleable of all metals.
    I’m thinking less than a dollar worth of gold on that ratchet.

    I shop at HF as much or more than the next man, but as of late I think they’re getting to think they’re better than they really are, and losing focus on their target demographic.

    I could understand the ICON line of tools, and it’s place in their lineup. But to think that they’re really a competitor of the tool trucks is pushing a bit.

    Also their discontinuation of coupons, and pushing everyone to the Inside Track Club to get discounts makes little sense. If they sold major name brands, I can see it being worth buying a membership to get discounts, but since nearly everything they sell is a store brand or knock off, I just don’t see a reason to buy a membership to save on things I really shouldn’t be buying to begin with, as I just don’t have the space.

    Overall, The past year or 2 of HF’s corporate direction have me believing they’ve started down a downward slope to their demise. Not because they’re trying to elevate their tool lineups, but because they’re losing track of who their core customers are. The DIY crowd; people putting together second, third, and more toolboxes to leave in the car/truck, camp, camper, ect.; and professionals who need an odd tool that they might use once a year, and hence can’t justify spending tool truck/name brand prices for.

    The best path to improving their lineup would be to reincorporate name brand tools at some or even no discount. HF is a store focused on tools. I can only think of one place(not even sure if they’re still open) that’s a non-tool truck tool dealer. In the 90’s name brand tools were a HF staple. Why should a customer be paying near name brand prices for store brand tools, even if the quality is equal? Leave the design and engineering to the tool manufacturers, and focus on bringing the best tool at the best price to the average consumer.

    I’ll admit I’m a bit salty about the discontinuation of most coupons and the gold ratchet. Reason being what I stated above. And I rarely was one to use a coupon at HF even when they were available. Just that I see the store trying to force the focus on a small band of people willing to pay more for a higher quality store brand tool, rather than on the bulk of their consumers.
