A good while ago I remember reading a news snippet on here that a Harbor Freight was coming to Waldorf. It obviously hasn't happened yet, anyone know did those plans fall through or what?
One of the few times I did not work Black Friday at Lowe's back in Illinois, my wife and I spent several hours at Harbor Freight.According to this article, they got in their space in February and are looking to open this summer.
I want about four packs of these, but you go ahead and pay $100/pack for the snap on.I agree. Their tools are junk from the Ho Chi Minh Trail. You get what you pay for and no thanks — Snap-On, please. Made right here in the USA.
The tool boxes are pretty nice, and are incredibly nice for the price. I have several sets of Pittsburgh wrenches that I keep in the truck for emergency and in my garage in plain view as loaners or in hopes that if something gets stolen those are what gets stolen, but their quality is not bad at all.Some of their stuff isn't too far off from what the local auto parts stores sell. I picked up a set of combination wrenches for work, because tools have a tendency to grow legs. Something like $20 for 32 pc set is hard to beat.
I have their 120v impact wrench to use around the yard. It helps when you're working on your rusty trailers or rotating tires. Glad I bought the extended warranty.
Their 21 gallon compressor, 3200 watt generator, US General rolling mechanics cart all serve their purpose just fine.
Tarps, cut-off wheels, and marine shrink tubing all do the same job at a fraction of hardware store prices.
My boy is just starting out as an auto technician. He is investing his money in quality tools to do his job, Home Depot and HF tool boxes give him a place to secure his investments. They are heavy gauge steel, have smooth casters and drawers, and they lock.
