Harbor Freight

If it is Harbor Freight, be careful. Their stuff, while inexpensive can be very unreliable. We have a harbor Freight store nearby. I learned a long time ago that it was worth the extra few bucks to buy craftsman. The last thing I bought was a set of wire strippers that BROKE the first time I used them.

you just got to know what to get there. ou cant just buy anthing there.

For the most part all the Hand tools that have ood mass of metal on them will never fail you, and if they do, they have a life time warranty on them there.

Far as Power tools.. Well if you dont se them much then there ok..

Air tools most of them seem to be ok if you not going to use them every day or use them in a shop

Iv never to this date have had a hand ool or a power tool brake from them and iv got alot of stuff from them.

Yeah the tool box it not as good as a Real name brand one, but also i didn;t want to spend $300+ on a name brand one.
or $500+ for a Ball Barring one.

I agree on certain off brand items. And demand certain things to be name brand.


My toolbox is all roller ball bearing.. The drawers don't move quite as easily as a Snap On...honestly though...how many have felt a Snap On enough to notice?

Had the box for about 6 years now.. Only reason I want to get rid of it is to go bigger.

I priced boxes 6 yerars back

HomeDepot had reasonable prices..you could get a box higher than 6 feet and only 2 feet wide for $800

Sears box was a little shorter and priced over $1000

Costco had the Homark box 4 feet wide..only about 5 feet high for $600

Due to only being 5'10" I went with the box I could see into the top. And have never regretted it.

Plus.. ask anyone that'* been over to my house.. I go off the deep end the minute someone slams a drawer because they aren't used to ball bearings.
