Hey Guys,
I just got a 20% off coupon from Harbor Freight Sales expires 2/25/06. If you are looking at some of the more expensive items there it could save you a bunch! They have their bike lift on sale for $299.00 and with 20% off it would be $240.00 not a bad price. I already have a lift but I am going to pick up a hydraulic press 20 ton for $144.00 with the coupon. Just thought you might want to know. If you aren't on their email list just send me your email address and I will forward the coupon to you.

Bigtwin,
I wasn't talking about the jack style lift, this is their table style lift. Item number 91764-1VGA. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=91764 I am not saying its the best, because I have a superlifts ML1000 table lift, but I have seen this lift discussed on this forum before and it is the least expensive one out there. I will agree that the craftsman jack style lift is better than the Harbor Freight one, but it does cost more.

Every Chinese tool you'll ever need. Sigh.:mad: Oh Well, I've bought 'em too. :yes:
Thus I buy the $2.95 extended warranty on nearly everything I buy there.. Mark a date on the box and within a month of the warranty expiration I take it back and get a new one.

Looked at this table last week that Starbound is talking about. Don't know, looks good but didn't care for the front wheel clamp all that much.

Shoot, I've never had their stuff break. It just eats me up that they can produce this and ship it so damn cheap. I compare it to the USA stuff and for my needs I just plain can't pay the substantially higher price for the US product. :dunno: This only applies to tools like shop press and such. Hand tools are a different story although the Asisan stuff is much better today than it was just a few years ago.

I agree Sprung, I have never had any of their stuff break. They have a lot of neat little gadgets. Don't have any of their hand tools, I usually buy Craftsman. I do have two sets of deep impact sockets and impact extensions and never had a problem with them. For the price their stuff is hard to beat. I figure if it does break I'm not out that much anyway. The clamp on the table lift is a little cheesy! I would replace that with a handy style clamp which is what is on my superlift.
