My go-to HF Freebie. Keep a look out for no-purchase freebie coupons.

The Harbor Freight item numbers 69111 and 69052, is a mini LED flashlight that is my go-to HF freebie. This is also one of the products that continues to pop up as a no-purchase freebie. I keep them all over my car and house because I pick one up with a no-purchase coupon almost every time I am at HF and don’t buy anything. From a performance standpoint, the LEDs are bright, and it will do the job. Since I have them scattered (at least 2) in every room of my house, I never have to...

Almost perfect HF No Purchase Freebie worth stashing everywhere!  I keep pairs of them everywhere.

The Harbor Freight item numbers 60566, 67227, 69567 is a 27 LED light that pops up as a no-purchase freebie every now and then. I’ve amassed a very disturbing collection of them, with at least 4 spread out in my family cars, and a slew of them all over the house. The LEDs are bright, and the magnet and hook have come in handy when I use them for what they are intended for. What can someone complain about on a 100% freebie (remember, no-purchase!)? Well my secondary use for these f...

I bought this electric planer with a 25% coupon off over a year ago to serve as a one-time beater tool for the wing chun dummy my buddy and I made. I decided on this plane over the other models, like the 91062 power planer that was recently reviewed, based on overall better reviews on the HF website, and a personal impression of better feeling on the controls when I was playing with it in-store, and the ability to easily connect a 1-1/4” shop-vac hose. The planer was used for very ro...

I suppose as an actual review, I would say that for the price, it fit my needs. Also, I used a 25% discount coupon to get it. So, really good at the price I paid. Video of the product.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igWpQ9eHs88

Forget the hump, that smell will knock you out

Forget the hump, that smell will knock you out

Everytime I’m at Harbor Freight, I can’t leave without picking up a freebie. On one trip, I took a $2 risk to give you my $0.02s on this sanding block. The only review on the HF website highlighted the existence of a hump that one could sand out. I figured, for $2, I could easily buy a full set for all my grits, sand off the hump, and have them in my travel “to-go” tool set or not feel guilty when I leave them outdoors. When I got home and opened the package, the...

Had the idea to use a top and bottom toolbox combo as auxiliary tool and supply storage. My thought process concluded the HF item would fit the deal. Then I would add on with using a two drawer “mid” box to increase space. First ordered a Waterloo two drawer unit online. Fedex literally dropped it at my door. My complaints to the seller resulted in a refund of a third of purchase price. Next found the HF box on sale during a parking lot sale for 299.99, but out of stock...

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 02:57 PM by JHAstrello | 20 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...

Not perfect but love the table

Not perfect but love the table

09-25-2014 03:09 AM by Ajax86 | 15 comments »

Good points: the table did not take long to assemble. Its sturdy and doesn’t move easily (but not too heavy to change its location). The price was great. Bad points: the bottom shelf was cut too narrow and it keeps falling out of the grooves. One of the drawers would not open/close because the metal drawer slide was defective. Harbor freight said they would send a replacement part out. Some of the parts that came with this table I will not use so if you would like to have my ext...

A few months ago I posted a review of some Kimberly-Clark Nitrile Gloves that I really liked. In the responses, several folks discussed their love of Harbor Freight nitrile gloves. I hardly ever go there, but today I needed to drop by and so I picked up some of these 5 mil gloves (they offer 3, 5, 7, and 9). I didn’t want them to be thin like the ones at the drug store (3) or as thick as some others I’d picked up (7), so I thought I would try the 5 mil model. In doing some pai...

Modifying HF's Dust Collector for Better Mobility, Sturdiness & Electrical Capacity

Modifying HF's Dust Collector for Better Mobility, Sturdiness & Electrical Capacity

Over the past six months, I modified my 22’ x 22’ British-style backyard conservatory to serve not only as my gym, as it has since 1997, but also as my workshop (see, photo 1) [If interested in this conversion, including heroic saga of my fighting off tens of thousands of carpenter ants and rebuilding after they ravaged the structure, see my video on VIMEO http://vimeo.com/103100319] In sharing exercising and woodworking in a closed space, I decided that it was imperative to my good h...
