Customers often express how this cabinet compares to name brand cabinets but is a much greater value:

I have compared to my brother’s Snap-On that he payed $10,000 for. There is no reason to pay that much for a box. The drawer liners are a good quality. – Strokedimpala, Dutchess, NY

I love it. The size and quality for the price are great … I could buy something similar off one of the tool trucks but it would cost at least 5 times as much and nowhere near 5 times the quality. I can buy a lot of tools for what I saved on a tool box. Don’t hesitate. This is a great box for the money. –  Andrew Johnson, Norfolk, NE

Have owned most major brands of tool chests from store brands to commercial truck brands. This 3 bay 72″ PRO series tool chest will stand up to any box out there in construction and the materials used to make it. You look under the box and see massive steel structure for the nice casters to mount to with real bolts more than big enough. The welds look really good and all the riveting is tight. They did not cut corners when constructing this box and it is worth twice what you pay for it … ker, Atlanta, GA

Hands down is just as nice as a $7,000 Snap-On or similar toolbox. – Greg, Chantilly, VA

Hot Bike Magazine declared the EarthQuake 1/2 In. Professional Air Impact Wrench “Top of its class in quality at a really great price.”

But what do customers have to say?

Just used this impact to bust off a wheel bearing nut. We are talking about a 32mm nut torqued to 150 ft-lb at the factory, with 15 years’ worth of rust on it. This gun busted it off like it was nothing. I have yet to come across a fastener this gun can’t handle working on cars and light duty pickup trucks … H-Bomb, Washington, DC

Like others here, I own several of the “tool truck” impact guns and could not believe that this gun could be in the same category. It is powerful, quiet and well made. Takes off high torqued fittings like they were hand tight … WELL worth the cost! Buy it, try it, you’ll soon be a believer! – JSAerotech, Northern New Jersey

One powerful wrench. This is all you need to get the job done. Made a bet with the Mac tool man which one would break 1/2 bolt in a vice first. I won … I think he is still there trying. – Quarterking, Mt. Clemens, MI

This tool is the ultimate weapon in the war on rust. There’s B.E. ( before EarthQuake) and A.E. (after EarthQuake). B.E.:  most rust repair involved a cutting torch. .A.E: life’s simpler. If I can get a socket on the part, the wrench does the rest. It must be the Godzilla of Impact Wrenches. – Zeke, IN

How To Create An Organized Stackable Parts Storage Cabinet

If you’re like me, you’ve got a kind of “Winchester House-like” system for keeping all of your screws, bolts, nuts, washers, hooks, nails, brads, tacks and parts in a place where you can get at them… usually thrown all harum-scarum in the smaller upper workbench drawers and coffee cans. I’d hate to actually audit the time I’ve spent looking for everything whilst in the middle of projects.

stackable organizer complete 2

So, what would you think of having your hardware– every single cotter pin, rivet, fuse, lock nut– sequestered in its own bin, in labeled cases stacked 12-high in a portable cart? Well, that’s exactly what Dave Wirth did with his huge inventory of parts and fasteners, employing the Storehouse 20-Bin Portable Parts Storage Case from Harbor Freight.

20 bin storage case

Made of rugged ABS plastic, each case houses 20 removable bins and has a clear lid so you can see what you got inside without opening it up. It also comes with a handle for easy toting.

sorting the bins

Dave actually got a kick out of going through his stuff, dumping everything out, sorting them into their own trays, and then deciding which trays should be grouped together in the same case.  In the process, he found things he never knew he had.  Also, it was a treat knowing he’d never have to spend all that excess time looking for just the right sized bolt.

So, how did Dave Wirth tackle this extremely cool modern marvel? Check out his detailed “how-to” video here:

And while you’re at it, visit his Blog for a quick pictorial of how it’s done. It really is a neat project and a work of art.

As for the table saw, miter saw, wood glue, clamps, nail gun, compressor, belt sander and casters— whatever you don’t already have in your arsenal– you can find at Harbor Freight at great prices.

Make a Hidden Wall Compartment In Your House

hidden compartment complete open

As kids, we always had a thing about secret compartments and hidden spots. Somewhere to hide money (from light-fingered siblings) or special treasures that held significant, personal, intrinsic value. Somehow, hiding them made them even that much more special. So, why would that change when we become adults?

It came as no surprise, when doing a search on DIY hidden compartments, that I would get a plethora of results. Hidden doors, drawers, a “safe” in a tree, a fake head of iceberg lettuce… I don’t think there’s an end to the list of hiding places and secret compartments folks have in their homes or on their properties.

secret floor

So, I decided to focus on ideas that were practical (even though climbing into a bunker through the hood of a car was cool in “Red”), convenient (in the house), but not too simple (so the old hollowed-out book trick was out). Eventually, I found this wall unit on Instructables.com, which is the perfect combination of doable and clever, and the lock is kept in plain sight! If you’ve been thinking about creating a hidden compartment, check this out and see what you think. Then maybe look around your place and see where you could put it!

hidden compartment complete closed

FYI, here are the things you’re going to need to make it happen:


Besides the common woodworking tools, here are a few things you’ll need…


  • Tot Lok with extra key
  • 2 @ 3-1/2″ square rosette block moulding
  • Cabinet hinges
  • 1″x8″ shiplap board
  • 1″x8″ tongue and groove boards —  to cover the wall(s) that have wainscoting
  • 1″x2″ boards — spacers between the pairs of the 1″x8″s. You should have the same number of these as the 1″x8″
  • Nails, construction adhesive, caulk, paint, other wood needed for baseboards and for plate rail at the top of the wainscoting, etc.

If you’re short on any of the tools, swing by Harbor Freight Tools! You’ll find them at great, low prices!


Abrasive Blast Cabinet

More often than not, wire brushes or sanding discs just won’t cut it! Blasting is the only way to really get parts clean and prepped for paint and powder, especially when it comes to automotive parts. But blasting can create quite a mess. Save yourself the hassle with the Abrasive Blasting Cabinet (item #: 68893) from Harbor Freight Tools. The blasting cabinet is constructed from sturdy 19-gauge steel to keep dust, debris and blasting medium contained. It also features a fluorescent lighting system, ceramic nozzle, hose and gloves.

Here’s what customers are saying about the blasting cabinet:

I use this product daily. It works VERY WELL… – Scotty B., Jupiter Farms, FL

I have been doing all powdercoating for 2 motorcycle shops and use the heck out of this rig. I have not had a problem with leaks, assembly, gloves etc. This system works comparable to any others that are 4 times the cost. – RS-SS Restorations, Colorado/Arkansas

This is one of the best purchases I have made for my shop. Finding all kinds of uses. – Joel, Wisconsin
