HF is having their parking lot sale today, never checking out one I’m curious if the deals are any better than usual sales with coupons. I heard they have some steals on larger items and open box stuff.

I’m looking for f- bar clamps and pipe clamps. So are smalls like these worth the trip to check it out?

HF pipe clamps aren’t much cheaper than bessey (2-3$ a set if that). Lowes is selling off their bessey stock cheap cheap. I don’t know about their f clamps.

I was at our Harbor Freight this morning. Some pretty good deals on the sale.

If that 12” sliding miter saw is still there, get one. You can’t go wrong it’s only $130.00. You can buy 4 of those to one dewalt. The dewalt is sweet though.

Don’t bother with the HF pipe clamps. Try going to a Lowes and seeing if they have any pipe clamp sets left. They will likely be ~$5 each on clearance. The one I was at yesterday had several sets left, but I passed because I don’t use pipe clamps.

The HF F-style clamps may or may not be on sale. Usually not, but they do go on sale from time to time. You’d probably see it on their website if they were discounted. Either way, I think they’re a great deal (assuming you can’t get some Bessey’s at Lowes on clearance).

I don’t know about buying power tools from HF. I’ll buy their air tools for occasional usage. I’d prefer to buy Besseys, but the last one I purchased from Lowes was made in China, so that really turned me off. I’ll be patient and buy used ones all summer at garage sales and flee markets. The link belt is the only think that’s got me in their door as of late.
