prolly more useful than the other thread, but you never know.
Funny story a few years back we were camping at Superstition and something came up about tools. I mentioned that 90% of the tools in my tool box that I keep in my motorhome came from HF. Well a guy in our camp made the same comment that HF tools are junk and he would rather not have the tool then have crappy HF tool. So later on during the weekend he was having a issue with his buggy and was needing a pair of snap ring pliers. The only person in our whole group that had some was me. When he came asking I told him I had some, but I doubt they would work for him as they were from HF, and I knew he would rather not have a tool then use a HF tool. So I asked him if his buggy was done for the rest of the weekend. He said well if those HF pliers dont work then I am! 20 minutes later he came back and said they worked and he was good to go. He later thanked me for letting him borrow my snap ring pliers and said sorry for dogging on my tools.I dont go to harbor freight because having a bad tool is worse than not having one at all.. You think you have a certain tool, but it fails when you really need it, making the situation considerably worse.
