    Buy once, cry once: If you are going to use it heavy, get a good one.

    As far as hand tools go, cheap tools have come a long way over the years. Harbor Freight used to sell the same crap as the rolling tool sales that set up in the local Legion Hall, real junk.

    Today the HF wrenches & sockets are pretty nice for the cash you put out - would they hold up in a high volume heavy equipment shop? I don't know. For the guy at home they are work fine. At the old job we bought hardware store brand stuff, Do It, Channel Lock, Irwin, etc. (workers would steal high end stuff) and for whatever factory abuse they took there was never an issue with them failing.

    Irwin now owned by SBD has come up in quality in the past 3 years. Doit Best is now owned by Apex Tool (which owns Craftsman) and is steadily bringing it in-line with its overseas Blackhawk line. Channel Lock is still its own company and has continued to be made in the USA with USA materials.

    Doesn't really matter if they last, can get free replacements (for now).

    I was super happy that HF let me exchange the floor jack no questions asked pretty much. I just told the manager that I thought the regular low profile would work since they were out of the long reach one at the time.
    I have a ball joint press that I've used a bunch and loaned a couple times as well.

    I had a choice between orange or black.
    Chose black, figure it will be easier to trip over or stub a toe on

    You are required to keep the green one. I know I speak in Shane’s absence on the topic of color choices involved! :cool:

    Early morning reminder to always wear safety glasses. This was a hydraulic line relieving itself of pressure after having sat for 10 minutes with the pump off and controls cycled. A19E7FFA-3ECA-4831-9249-7852F4EFB0A7.jpg

    Stand off to the side if possible.
    Bad industry accident; I didn't see it but coworker did, guy torching off a plug from hydraulic cylinder that was supposedly relieved of pressure. Coworker said he looked like not even human but a overcooked little sizzler sausage. Miraculously he survived.
    Good on you for PPE!
