Hi everyone,
I have purchased enough tools from Harbor Freight over the years to know that the quality is always a bit crude. However some of the tools I have bought from them are still chugging along after a good deal of use. In particular I bought a cheap air body saw years ago that I have gotten an incredible amount of use from. I keep expecting it to die when I need it but I will have to get another one when that happens.


Does anyone want to comment on their frustrations or success storieswith particular Harbor Freight tools?


regards,
Jim

For basic stuff they can be good, things like C clamps, sandpaper, hammers etc.






- My air compressor is from them..very good value and works great.


- I bought a $18 spray gun and it broke/fell apart when assembling it.


- Online service is AWFUL..go in person locally.


- Don't buy drill bits from there [steel drilling]


You get what you pay for, but sometimes you just dont need a tuned $40 roofers hammer when a$4.99 one does the job fine.
