Another Big Red Lift Coupon & +++
« on: November 24, 2013, 01:12:15 AM »
The Latest Issue of MOTORCYCLIST Magazine not only has another $299. Lift Coupon in the HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS ad. Just in time for Santa to bring.
They have also included a very Favorable review of the Royal Enfield Continental GT.
THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW!
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

Caught a copy of Flying Mag at the airport. Had a 25% off coupon for HF. Since it doesn't specify "Lifts" as being excluded I'll see if they'll honor it. Otherwise it's off to the News Stand for a copy of Motorcyclist.  ;)
Rather than have a homeless person for the holidays, I decided to stick with ham.

Saw the ad a few weeks ago while I was nursing my back after a weekend afternoon of wrenching.  I hate to admit I need it but I think it's getting to be time.  Maybe I'll tell Santa to get me one...

And Craig, I no longer believe you when you say you don't own any HF stock ;)

The article on the Cafe Racer is quite nice!

Gotta get the kids (my son and nieces/nephews) for Christmas first, then the old man ;)  Funny, my son wants a $240 bike and I think nothing of it, but spend $300 on myself?  Whoa!  Let's not be hasty.  To be fair, the kid has excellent taste in two wheelers:

Candy apple red, flames, flat black accents, even has flames in the tire treads.  He got busted for speeding in the store the other day when we went to try it out.  I was pretty proud :)

I ought to be an honorary H.F. board member after all I, & my past employers have bought from them. But true to form here goes:
DON'T FORGET THE "BIG SALE" AT H.F. OF RATCHETING FLAT WRENCHES. Along with my Lift Purchase, my ratcheting flat Wrenches have made for some very pleasant moments in the workshop.

Ok, since we're talking about sales and HF already-

Would this torque wrench be a waste of money?  I know we get what we pay for...

Let me ask you this Mattz.  Would you trust a $10 tool to torque the most important nuts and bolts on your prized machine?  I'm all for Harbor Freight, but like you said you get what you pay for.  Some tools you're better off spending the extra money to make sure you are getting a quality product that works accurately.  That's my thoughts anyways.

If it worked?  Sure!  My $3 screwdriver works just great!  ;)  I know, I know...

But now I know your opinion, Scottie!  There are things, like the Harbor Freight motorcycle lift, which I might steer clear of if not for such praise of it here! (I'm still not getting one  :) )

I was given a Sears click torque wrench one birthday, but have a pair of small & large old school ones, with torque bar & pointer that I like better.
  I would mention that harbor freight gets stuff from INDIA & CHINA. Both have space programs & put stuff in orbit. Not hard to make a good Torque Wrench.  I'd trust it.

A torque wrench off 4% is better than none at all. You can get the wrench tested and see what the error is and correct it from there! Just shoot for the middle of the torque range, if there is one.
We had to get our torque wrenches certified every year in the aircraft wrenching business, unless it as the bending bar type. Those never go out!
