HF sells a lot of cheap junk gadgets for sure. But I have to say about 95% of my impact sockets came from there and for the money I have no complaints. All the tools I keep in my boat came from there too, if I drop something in the river or lake, no big deal.

I love those blue magnetic lights. We probably have 10-12 of them at home, in the cars, etc.

I'm bummed that there haven't been any "free with any purchase" coupons lately. No blue lights, no microfiber cloths, no AA batteries (though their batteries suck), no grabber tool...

They're not tipped employees, but I'm sure as he!! not going to yell at them about their "phony ads." I'll leave that to people with too much time on their hands, and not enough sense to spend that time differently.

When we go out, it's usually my wife and my younger daughter, sometimes my older daughter, sometimes some of their friends. I don't remember the last time I paid $18.79 for a meal. runaway

Horror Freight and WalMart - no bueno.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

According to whom? China? Oh they aren't know for lying at all. BTW, range of the F/A-18 is 1253 miles, a bit more than twice the alleged range of the missile you mention.

I have a Harbor Freight tool box for work, just like 3 other mechanics, it is as good as or better than the 2000.00 Craftsman I bought in 1999. It is good enough that I will probably get the 72" instead of the 44 and I make my living with tools. I used to love the lifetime warranty that craftsman had right up until they off shored their tools. Now it is not worth the time to send my Made int he USA back and get a Made in China in exchange. Oh did I mention I make my living with tools? I have several of their jacks and hoists and the only problem has been a check ball in one press that failed. A .03 cent ball bearing fixed the problem. Harbor freight is what you make of it. I do not buy many of their electric power tools but sometimes they get a good load of USA stuff also. My dad bought a 5hp Marathon Electric compressor motor made in Wausau Wi. and it was delivered for $200! I wish those deals would come around again. Tim

The Harbor Freight NiMH rechargeable AA batteries do test out at 2800 ma-hr.
The 9 volt rechargeable NiMH battery is 8.4 volts which is better than the typical 7.2 volts of some MiMH or NiCad batteries.

I prefer to keep rechargeable batteries in flashlights, radios and instruments because they do not leak corrosive materials.

With the 20% discount coupon the HF NiMH batteries are good value for less used stuff.

I have many Eneloop rechargeables for highly used stuff and the 1200+ recharges they do seem to be capable of make them valuable.
Today the Panasonic Eneloops are made in mainland China but
Fujitsu still runs the original Japanese eneloop factory.

A confusion in terms here, by range I mean the maximum distance a plane can fly and return. You are speaking of the maximum distance it can fly. sing my definition and F?A-18 has a "range" of 600 miles, and then it would be on fumes. Not being able to return to the carrier can have unfortunate results, see "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo". According to whom? Well, the U.S. Navy, they are using the Chinese missile range as the reason for an improved version of the F/A-18 with far greater fuel capacity and range. As you probably know, China is also building islands far off shore. This is to increase the effective range of their missiles against any threat from the sea.
