Topic tags/keywords: just for fun

I just got the flyer from Princess Auto (Canada’s version of Harbor Freight). They are selling tools painted in camouflage. No thanks. I have a hard enough time trying to find my tools at the best of times. I’d lose a day of work every week if my marking knife were camouflaged.

Yeah, I’m with you…they are hard enough to find already. Although if you have a neighbor/friend who likes to borrow stuff it may come in handy to be hidden in the shop. But who borrows HF tools?

There are the “good tools” that never leave the shop and then there are the “lending tools” from HF.

You guys are looking at this all wrong. When a burglar breaks into you shop he won’t be able to find anything to steal.

sounds like a really bad idea. With my luck I’d be working on a ladder 2 stories up and drop the darn thing. Gone forever!

Bright pink and white camo, not a bad idea. Regular green camo, what were they thinking?????
