• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Here is a tip that I've decided to make Sticky [stays at the top of sub forum lists] because it is significant:


While browsing the harborfreight.com site, I noticed they often have mark-downs. When visiting the local HB store, these mark-downs almost always do not match the website pricing. Example:


These brushes are on sale at $4.99 on the site, but when I went to buy them today locally, they rang up as the list price of $9.99.

So what I have been doing is arming myself with a printed page off the website, show it them at checkout, and they always mark it down to match [they check something on the POS screen, so they must know there is really a sale price for the item]. I have done this around a dozen times now, andprobably saved $200+ this past 18 months...[Isaved $75 using this approach when buying my bandsaw].
