    I also have a Noco charger and would not consider any HF chargers as I don’t trust their electronics for anything important either.

    I’ve got that. Just picked it up at the sale last weekend. Works great, charges up then trickles. Comes with a few helpful accessories.

    I bought this Noco G3500. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LWVEKS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . This is their cheapest model that desulfates. I've yet to try this mode but otherwise have been very happy with it for the past two years. I have some HF stuff, but shy away from their electronic offerings. Yes it's twice the cost, but going from $30 to $60 to get a trusted well known name brand I'm good with. You said above you just want another charger/maintainer, here's a name brand one for less than the HF; https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Tend...9Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= . Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I'm not trusting my nice toys (and my house, as my toys are in the garage) to HF.

    Just ordered their 3/8" drive clicky torque wrench that's on sale for $10. Don't care if it's totally precise, just want to torque my beadlocks evenly

    I got that Noco G3500 on woot for $35 a couple months ago, found on the old Amazon gems thread. Not sure how often that comes up on super sale. It is really a great device, I’d happily pay full price for it after getting familiar with it vs. old school chargers.

    That it will do. Mine embarrassed a mechanic who said he had a calibrated arm but was struggling with 'warped' disks on his Accord. Let's just say that the $20 was worth it just to see his face.

    Holy chit, I've done a lot already!!
    I agree. I've invested in better maintainer's through the years. This one brought my one year old battery back to life.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Q3CM2QY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Harbor Freight has just won my business!

    Great news and a great company even if some of their tools are crap. I'll keep buying them.

    I have one that I use to bend 1/8th inch thick aluminum flat bar that is 1.5 inches wide that I use for the license plate brackets I sell here on TW. It does the job although the "tolerances" are a bit sloppy. I have added a big ass washer in order to keep everything lined up to get clean, consistent bends. I have not played with it to test out the other capabilities that it has as I have it set up very specifically for what I am doing and do not have the time to explore some of the other capabilities. You can stretch the capabilities a bit if you are willing to heat up the point the metal is bending at. Of course this will weaken the metal at that location so you have to be careful if what you are making is structural or not.

    I'd like to take back what I said about the Bauer 1/2 impact. I've been using the shit out of it recently and it knocks off lug nuts no problem. IDK,maybe the battery wasn't charged properly. And it is the bigger battery.

    I stopped by the store by me the other day, closed to comply with the local government. Missing some good deals and free AAA batteries. :tumbleweed:
