Tool Crib's Harbor Freight Buying Guide
This is great. Our pals over at Tool Crib have compiled the ultimate Harbor Freight buyers guide. It's a massive list of what tools are worth buying (for maybe one or two uses) and which ones to avoid like the plague. The article is split into the following chapters...
1) Developing Your Harbor Freight Shopper Philosophy
2) Top Ten Things NOT to Buy at Harbor Freight (Humor)
3) Derogatory yet Slightly Loving Harbor Freight Nicknames
4) My Harbor Freight Prediction: Prices Way Up Soon... End of the HF?
5) The List: Good Enough, the Bad, and the Abysmal
6) Harbor Freight Tips and Tidbits
7) Harbor Freight Resources Used in this Article
That pretty much says it all. It's fantastic stuff and a good example of why the internet was invented in the first place. If you have your own harbor freight stories, you're encouraged to leave a comment at Tool Crib. It might make it to the next update to the guide.

lol, thats a good piece. HF has always cracked me up with Tools names Pittsburgh and Chicago electric, when we all know they are made in some obscure province somewhere.
I dont have a HF store near me, but between HD, Lowes,Sears and various online dealers I can get good stuff for a cheap price. There's always a deal somewhere. I dont want 30 screwdrivers for 5 dollars, but I'll buy 24 for 10 bucks on sale that are made in the states & sold by Sears.
HF seems to be for regular cheapies and normal people who need a tool unexpectedly for 1 time use
