New Harbor Freight store 15 minutes from me
#1
I know it is almost all Chinese import crap but there are a few good things. I went there this morning "just to check it out". Yeah I bought some stuff, I couldn't help myself! This is bad.

Christmas is coming!

Be prepared to make some room in your garage/shop for all the new stuff you ARE going to buy. A lot of what they carry is a waste of money but, if you are selective you can find some reasonably priced tools that are fine for occasional use. I also have one 20 minutes away. Chuck

Nice for that tool you are gonna need only once but they do have moving blankets dirt cheap good for covering the cars while working on them.

My favorite choice for consumable stuff like cut off wheels, grinding discs, spot weld bits. Buy 'em cheap, burn 'em up and throw them away.

Exactly, sometimes it's a better investment to pick up cheap tools. I like Harbor Freight. The guys on Garage Journal really like their large tool boxes.

I have one nearby too and usually buy something when I go in there. Lots & lots of cheap tools...and by cheap I mean crappy. Don't buy anything with an electric motor in it from Chicago Tools. I bought a grinder that got too hot to hold while sharpening a lawn mower blade. Their anvils are pretty good though. Big Grin
