    What is it about Harbor Freight and 16 & 18mm tools. Their wrench and socket sets are always, without exception, missing both those sizes. I could see it being a smart marketing ploy is they sold those sizes individually, but they don't... I was in today and they have a really nice set of...

    Has anyone purchased and OBD reader from HFT? Im having a hard time getting my scanner back from a "friend" and its an old scanner anyway. They're alot cheaper than most scanners with the same features, but like most, I'm wary of inexpensive alternatives.

    I found the time to drive out to a Harbor Freight outlet store. Lots of junk but also lots of things that were low cost and useful. I picked up a pack of 1200 wet/dry sand paper ($2.60) and a 3" buffer kit ($13.00). I went over my Jeep headlights again and they came out better than when I...

    Flushed my heater core the first time, it got much better but still if I put it on high at an idle it cooled down to just under luke warm. I let the flush sit in the heater core for about 4 hours and then flushed with clean water, it appeared the water was clean and I assumed the heater core...

    You were turning left onto harbor from an industrial complex and then stopped at the Harbor/McArthur light.

    For those interested, the Harbor Freight Rear Brake piston-turning kit is on sale this week for only $20. (As in, today may be the last day.) My local store still had quite a few in stock. The Harbor Freight set is about fifty times better than the stupid cube, one-piece setups, or...

    For those who can't/don't want to spend the bucks on VAG COM (which is a mistake in my book, but to each his own), this is a cheaper alternative. I can't vouch as to whether it works on our cars, but it should. And it...

    Didn't see this anywhere ...was written last week. Basically, 300k sets of automotive fuses sold by Harbor Freight between 8/05 - 8/07 are being recalled because they may not blow when they should and could...

    We are finally going on vacation after a killer summer of work. I was just wondering if there are any major construction woes to look out for on our travels. We are leaving from Reading PA and heading towards 278 over the tapenzee bridge and hooking up with 95. After last years AAA triptik...

    If you have to check out a Harbor Freight Tool store if you have one in your city. I went this past Saturday and bought the caliper piston tool for $39. After walking throught the store I bought an additonal $30 of stuff. The tools are not Craftsman quality, but they are very reasonably...

    I know I read about this a couple of times on this forum, but my search is coming up empty. The regular price for this tool is 39.99. But there's some trick where you put the item number in manually, it comes up as 19.99. Had something to do with using the "Order from Printed Catalog" window on...
