Features include an easy-access handle, smooth rolling wheels and a fully-shrouded pump and motor for protection. Woodworking, sand blasting and metalworking shops– or anywhere where pneumatic tools are used– can benefit from this powerful air compressor! Out of the box, the cast iron vertical air compressor comes with:
  • An oil-lubricated pump for reliable performance
  • Twin capacitor motor for easy start-up
  • Adjustable handle and semi-pneumatic tires for easy maneuvering
  • Thermal overload protection
  • Dual pressure gauges and a built-in quick coupler

Here’s what a couple of happy owners of the air compressor have to say:

 ”I’m using this for sandblasting small items and for normal home use. It can supply a steady 60 pounds of pressure indefinitely, and obviously a lot more for brief periods of time. The compressor is relatively quiet. It takes about 2 minutes to fill up and shut off. The tank seems to hold its full pressure indefinitely, and is ready to use anytime. After a month of use, it seems like a good quality product.”  newshirt – Colorado Springs, CO
“I find uses for it EVERY DAY. Blowing up balls, handheld palm & air nailers,staplers, impact wrenches… blowing off sawdust & ? after weed eating, cooling off, too! EASY to move, inside if it’s cold out for easier starting, it won’t trip breakers OR blow fuses that way! DARN good value for the money! H-F stands behind their products!”  Ugly Gene – Pinee Bush, NY
This sturdy, capable vertical air compressor, priced at the incredibly low $357.99,  is currently available only at Harbor Freight Tools  brick n’ mortar stores. Pick one up for your shop and never worry about having enough power again.

Harbor Freight Celebrates International Girls Day

Recently, Teddy Robertson posted on her blog:

“Surprisingly, the Flint store is very female.   Of course, you see a lot of women in Home Depot and Lowes.  They are selecting paint colors or lighting, or bathroom fixtures.  At Harbor Freight women roam the drill bit aisles.  And what’s more, women—middle-aged women—are on the floor helping them with real tools.  Maybe years back they would have worked in the shop.  Today they work at Harbor Freight.”

Today, November 14, is International Girls Day, and it’s fitting that Harbor Freight Tools takes notice. The girls have been coming to HFT in growing numbers, sharing the checkout lines with the boys, carrying miter saws and cordless drills; on the Web, you now stumble across Girl Power blogs like Pink Toes & Power Tools and Ana White, sounding the alarm that women are taking over the home DIY projects.

That being said, I’d like to submit…

Of course, there’s more to life than always working. As Teddy Robertson closed in her post:

“Last year toward the end of summer Dennis came home with battery powered fly swatter he’d gotten on sale for $3.99 (reg. $7.99).  We sat on the porch in a warm twilight sipping margaritas and swinging at mosquitoes.  Can’t beat Harbor Freight.”

You go, girl.

The Picasso of Airbrush Compressor and Sprayer Kits

It’s Pablo Picasso’s birthday!

Picasso was one of the most gifted painters of our time, no question. And yet, I can’t help but wonder how many more incredible works of art he could have given the world if he had a Central Pneumatic 1/6 Horsepower, 58 PSI Airbrush Compressor and Airbrush Kit.

airbrush compressor and kitThe pro-quality Central Pneumatic airbrush and compressor set (#69434) is a powerful tool, enabling you to get as creative as you want with the air brush. This airbrush compressor and kit works with lacquers, oil-based paints and latex-based paints. Here’s an airbrush kit with everything you need to make custom art– AND it’s easy to change colors, and easy to clean! For just $89.99 at Harbor Freight Tools, you can be the Picasso of the cul-de-sac!

While you’re picking one up, also consider tossing a Central Pneumatic Quick-Change Airbrush Kit #93506 (a mere $9.99) in the basket, so you can have five additional cups of paint ready with adjustable paint flow and spray patterns.

Here’s what just a few customers have to say about this great airbrush sprayer kit:

“This compressor is a fraction of the cost of the name brands, but works just as well. I’ve had complete success with it when used with acrylic or enamel model paint. It’s quiet, powerful and easy to operate. The water trap and pressure gauge are nice additions. I’d buy another one.”  Modeller – East Coast

“Great little unit for the price. I’ve had mine for a good 5-6 years. I use it for spraying glazes and underglazes on pottery with a dual action airbrush. It has been a great little workhorse for me!”  Steve the Potter – Philly area, PA

“Overall, best thing I’ve ever bought!”  Adam R – Atlanta, GA

OK, so maybe I was overreaching a bit. You probably won’t be as good as Picasso. Warhol, on the other hand…

Performance Metrics

It’s National Metric Day… so, let’s measure up and celebrate by taking advantage of the great metric tool deals at Harbor Freight!

deep wall socket set - metric

 

Take, for example, the Pittsburgh 13-Pc. High Visibility 1/2″ Drive Metric Deep Wall Impact Socket Set (say THAT three time real fast!). There’s a reason why customers gave this high-quality socket set 5 STARS! The deep wall design allows you to reach fasteners on longer studs while the hard-core construction stands up to the demands of the most brutal impact drivers. Reach even fasteners on long studs– and, each piece is clearly marked to make size selection fast and easy! Priced at only $23.99, this will be your go-to socket set for years to come! Here’s what customers have to say:

“I bought this set and use it almost every weekend on my personal cars, family’s, and friend’s cars. I LOVE the fact that it comes with a 30mm and 32mm socket that I can use as a Axle nut socket also. For the price that I bought it for equals the price of a single axle nut socket. Can find a better set for the price anywhere else!”  Peter – Columbia Heights, MN

“I bought these mainly because the sale price was so attractive; we have 1/2 deep impacts in the shop, but I figured I’d save a trip to the other toolbox when I need the 17mm for VW or Audi lug bolts. The entire set of 13 sockets cost me significantly less than just one socket from the tool truck. I wound up beating the snot out of these doing front-end work on a dump truck, and they withstood much harder use than I had ever intended to subject them to. These sockets are very sturdy, but the fit on the fastener is very good as well. These are a real bargain, I recommend them to both amateurs and professionals.”  Bill – Scranton, PA

 

ratcheting combo wrench set - metric

And speaking of 5 STARS, feast your eyes on the Pittsburgh 7-Pc. Metric Ratchet Combo Wrench Set. Made of the same durable chrome vanadium steel as the deep wall socket set, the ratchet ends give a generous 5-degree turning radius for working in tight areas. The fixed side features a 15° offset head for added torque when turning. Comes with a custom storage case to keep wrenches organized and quickly accessible. Priced at only $23.99.

“I purchased this set because I didn’t feel like spending a fortune on a name brand set that was smaller than this. Ihave to say… WOW!! Worth every penny!! Not one skip and gets into all the tight spaces! I do a lot of work on automobiles of all sorts, and that implies a lot of torque and on these high torque applications, no skipping or binding whatsoever!!”  JeepGuy – Long Island, NY

“My wife got me a Channellock set in SAE sizes, but we have a Toyota and a Kia so I needed metric. The SAE set gets used for mowers, etc., and this set is for the cars. Guess what? IT IS IDENTICAL to the Channellock set in EVERY WAY except for the brand name on it. The fit and finish is very high quality. I used these to replace the rear struts and springs on my Toyota, though it was widely advised that I wouldn’t be able to remove certain lower mounting bolts without an impact wrench. I used an HF breaker bar (the 1/2″ drive one) with an HF 17mm impact socket, and using the 17mm open-end from this set holding onto the other end of the bolt to keep it from turning. Came off with no problem , though it was the original strut and had been exposed to Michigan road salt for 19 years!”  Joe Louis – West Michigan

 

21 pc SAE metric socket set

Finally, there’s the 5-STAR Pittsburgh 21 Piece High Visibility 3/8 In. Drive SAE/Metric Socket Set. OK, so we fudged a bit, throwing in a partially SAE-populated product, but hey… with this set, there’ll be no whining! These wrenches are constructed of tough chrome vanadium for strength and durability. They’re also triple-chrome-plated and etched with high visibility markings for quick grabs. The set comes complete with a quick-release ratchet with reversible 72-tooth gearing and a cushion grip. All for just $19.99! And what are the customers saying?

“I rarely used 1/4 drive sockets, picked these up just to round out my tool collection. Now I’m reaching for this set every time I have a bolt under 14mm! The ratchet is comfy and good quality, and a big plus is having all the sockets in order on the plastic holder rather than scattered in the bottom of a tool box. One hint, I used a silver paint-pen to write the socket size on the holder. Easier to find it fast. Really like these, especially for the price!”  Joel – SW Ohio

“I bought this set mainly for small things here and there at work. I work in a collision shop as a painter and occasinally I need to loosen bolts, nuts etc. This set is great. Beats paying hundreds for those name brand sets off the tool trucks. I am thinking of buying another set to keep at home. They have a pretty solid, sturdy feel.”  Burbs – Shelby Twp., MI

Get On Your Bikes and Ride!

stingray

Coveting my ride, aren’t you? It’s been with me since ’72, and I still get looks… especially when I do my wicked jumps and wheelies. That’s right, kid, the classics never die.

It’s National Bike Week! Which means… what? It’s time to kick a stand! Get out on the open road, weave around and startle pedestrians, water pistol chasing dogs, you know… good times! So, get your home “bike-friendly” with some  cool deals from Harbor Freight Tools:

air compressor - portable

First, the bike’s been sitting there for a long time, the tires are probably low. Forget those ripoff artist gas station bozos who want to charge a buck for some air– air!–here’s a great, little compressor that’ll keep you on the road: The Pittsburgh Automotive 12 Volt, 100 PSI High Volume Air Compressor. You’ll get all the air you need when you need it with this little, high-volume compressor. It’ll fully inflate your bike tires quickly– as well as ATV, mower rider, motorcycle and car– and its lightweight, portable design and handy carry bag make it easy to use at home or store in your vehicle. Features include rubber feet for less vibration, a gearless direct drive for reduced noise, and a cast alloy air pump casing with cooling fins. For only $25.99, you can afford to salute the gas station any way you’d like as you coast by.


bike rack

When in pursuit of distant bike paths (where nobody knows you– who picked out those bike shorts, anyway?), you’ll need a sturdy, reliable bike rack. Harbor Freight’s got a worthy one, a Two-Bike Rack That you Mount to Your Hitch. This type is really the ideal way to get your bike around with ease and safety. This rack includes thermoplastic bike holders with four hook-and-loop straps, and a pinch hitch pin to keep your bikes safe and not bouncing and swaying around like Jack Sparrow in a sword fight. Also, the handy swing-down feature gives hassle-free access to any rear hatch or tailgate. The bike rack will fit both 1-1/4″ and 2″ hitch mount receivers. Just $39.99 at Harbor Freight.

bike taillight

One of the first rules of the road you learn is that the streets are full of boneheads. Which means, it pays to be extra careful and make sure everybody knows you’re there. Be smart and pick up a couple of Red LED Bicycle Taillights for you and your riding companion. This taillight’s got FOUR attention-getting LEDs for high visibility on those crazy roads. The compact light also has three different flashing modes and can adjust up and down 160 degrees. It’s spray resistant and includes two AAA batteries. At $4.99 a pop, I can’t believe I’m still here pitching you.

At the end of the day, when it’s time to stable your stallion, don’t just lean it against the wall– put it away proper, out of the way of clumsy, stumbling feet. Harbor Freight’s got a couple of solutions for that, too:

bicycle lift

 Probably the best return for $8.99 you’ll ever spend on your bike is on the innovative Bicycle Lift at HFT. Using a unique pulley-locking mechanism, the bicycle lift quickly hoists your bike for easy storage, giving you extra space in your garage, apartment or dorm. Mounting hardware and a 46 ft. nylon rope are included, and setting this thing up couldn’t be easier. Perfect for saving your bike from scratches!

bike tree

 Or, if you’ve got a sizable brood to accommodate, check out the nifty Cycle Tree Compact Bike Storage. You can store up to six bikes in only four feet of space! The cycle tree is made of durable, yet lightweight, steel construction and rides on swivel casters for easy maneuverability around the garage. This is the perfect bike storage for every member of the family without taking up a lot space in your garage!  On sale for $39.99 at Harbor Freight.

And don’t forget  to clip your Harbor Freight Tools 20% Off Coupon, where the ridiculous savings get really absurd!

In the meantime, have a great National Bike Week. Have fun, ride smart, be safe… and don’t forget the water pistols!

Super Streetbike Review: 1/5 HP Airbrush Compressor

When it comes to riding your motorcycle, it’s not enough that it just runs good– you gotta look good. So make sure you check out Super Streetbike’s April 2013 issue (no, not the cover, lug nut– I’m talking about YOU looking good).

On page 58 there’s a nifty article on “Helmet Painting”– a cool, inexpensive way to self-express on the road. But, as writer Brian Hatano points out, you need more than a creative idea to get your point across; it takes technique. So, he takes you through every step you probably don’t think about when  imagining that wicked skull with flames and roses… namely, preparation, detail, method and materials. To get the hang of the spray gun skills, though, Brian suggests we first get the feel of it with a practice helmet:

“For practice jobs, any helmet will work, but starting with a lid in good condition will require less initial prep and give you more time to think about designs and color combinations.”

He then breaks down the process of executing a successful paint job– from disassembling the helmet to applying the clear coat– in crystal, concise detail. Great intel to have for when you’re ready to go for it.

Interesting, however, is that even though Brian was working in a shop equipped with a large air compressor, he opted instead to go with the Central Pneumatic 1/5 HP, 58 PSI Airbrush Compressor.

“Although we had a full size compressor available, we tried out the Harbor Freight Central Pneumatic 1/5th HP Airbrush Compressor and it performed better than units costing twice as much. Zac noted the quiet motor with no pulsing in the air supply.”

Constructed of sturdy anodized aluminum, the airbrush compressor is easy to clean and operate, and changing colors is a cinch. The airbrush kit works with lacquers, oils and latex-based paints to create pro-quality designs only limited by your imagination! It comes with a 22cc glass jar, 5cc metal cop and 5-ft. air hose– and, at a low $88.99, it’ll pay for itself over and over again!

While you’re shopping, also be sure to pick up the Central Pneumatic Quick-Change Airbrush Kit for just $11.99. This enables you to switch out paints in a flash with next-to-no downtime.

This awesome setup would also be perfect for custom painting:

  • Bike frames
  • R/C and other models
  • Auto body detail art
  • Tool boxes or cabinets
  • Furniture
  • Pottery
  • Metal sculpting
  • Signs and murals
  • Crafts
  • Toys
  • Cosmetic and Halloween makeup
  • Spray tanning
  • …and so much more!

Also, of course, if you want to support the team at the big game.

 

Garage Cleaning Pt. 1 – Getting the Toys Ready

Now that the weather’s getting nicer, step outside and take inventory of your outdoor toys: lawn mower, ATVs, bikes, motorcycles, dirt bikes… not a pretty picture, is it? The tires are flat, they’re dead as doornails and they’ve got a film of filth accumulated from four months of neglect (and maybe even some left over from last year’s use).

Time to get in gear, son. Here are a few tools from Harbor Freight that’ll jump start your spring and summer, and get your wheels back on track:

First of all, let’s put some air back in those tires. For that– as well as other light air tool jobs around the garage– I recommend the Central Pneumatic 3-Gall Oilless Air Compressor #95275.  Equipped in a compact 1/3-gallon tank, the compressor puts out a capable 100 PSI, plenty for brad nailing, stapling, inflating or air brushing. It includes a quick connect coupler, and features easy-to-read gauges and thermal overload protection. Easily stored in the trunk of any vehicle, this compressor is a portable and hassle-free light duty air supply. And at $59.99 ($49.99 with coupon ’til the end of March!), it will have paid for itself, saving you from all those trips to the gas station where they charge you a buck a pop!

Next, blast the dirt, dust and grime off your mower, ATVs and bicycles with the Pacific Hydrostar 1650 PSI Electric Pressure Washer #69488. This is a great pressure cleaner for any auto garage or shop. Capable of  up to 1,650 PSI, it can be employed to power-clean your  walls, yard equipment, RV, boat, and vehicles easily. We like using it on the exterior siding, molding and getting rid of wasp nests. Lightweight and portable, it features a 13′ pressure hose that can reach the tougher areas, and 5″ diameter wheels for smooth transport. The nozzle is also adjustable for wide spraying or tight, concentrated streams, which is great when you need lighter or harder pressure. Add Harbor Freight’s powerful Degreaser Concentrate and use it to power wash your greasy, grimy, cobweb-covered BBQ grill as well. Normally priced at $99.99, but now ’til the end of March, you can pick up one of these babies for just $89.99 with coupon!

Chances are, after being dormant for several months, some of your engines will need defibrillation. This is where the Chicago Electric Battery Charger and Engine Starter #66783 comes in. Imagine the rush of godlike power as you connect the positive and negative clamps to your dead mower, and with a maniacal laugh, yell “Clear!” and hit the ignition, bringing your creature back to life. The 10-amp charger setting on this unit recharges vehicle batteries in just 3-5 hours. The 2-amp trickle function maintains the charge when the battery is not being used, while the 55-amp setting provides a boost of added cranking power for autos in emergency situations. The battery charger includes battery leads and clamps to help you get back on the lawn, water, dirt and road quickly. Priced at $49.99, the battery charger and engine starter will pay for itself over and over again!

Now that you’ve finished moving all your machines outside and ready for action, it’s time to turn your attention to the garage itself. Tune in next time when we address getting the garage/shop cleaned, organized and ready for all your projects in 2013!

Hot Rod, Mustang Monthly & Super Street Bike Reviews: The Earthquake Impact Wrench

 Hot Rod magazine gave generous props to the Central Pneumatic Earthquake 1/2″ Impact Wrench (#68424) in the Parts & Stuff section of their January 2013 issue:

“This is the Cadillac of ½-inch impact wrenches. From Harbor Freight, known for great tools and cheap prices, the Central Pneumatic Earthquake ½-inch Impact Wrench is rated at 700 lb-ft and has three forward speeds plus reverse. It has twin hammers inside that help to make more torque easier. It has less vibration than the competition and, according to Harbor Freight, is the most powerful wrench in its class. One other cool feature is that the exhaust port is pointed away from the user, so no more blowing air in your face when using the tool.”

While I do love Hot Rod for being a renowned mag, full of informative articles, how-to’s, showcases, etc., they’ll have to go to the back of the line on this one. Harbor Freight’s Earthquake 1/2″ impact wrench is already a well-documented legend for, not only its power, durability and performance, but also the great price– just $94.99 (around $76 with a 20% off coupon)!

Back in October, 2012, the Mustang Club of America’s online magazine, Mustang Monthly, had this to say:

 ”Do we really need any excuse to go buy new tools for the garage? Of course we don’t, but the new Earthquake air tool from Harbor Freight gives you 700 reasons to pick one up when you need to get those stubborn, rusty fasteners off your Mustang!

“This professional class wrench (Item# 68424) delivers more power with better weight distribution, lighter materials and a more compact housing. Premium grade components with close tolerances give this tool a longer lifespan than conventional air wrenches.”

 Motorcycle enthusiast magazine Super Street Bike also had a few choice words regarding the Earthquake impact wrench in their January, 2013 issue:

“Harbor Freight returns with another price-conscious tool that should be in every garage: the Central Pneumatic Earthquake half-inch impact wrench. You may not need this tool for everyday wrenching on the bike, but when upgrading or replacing worn out sprockets requires the removal of a countershaft sprocket nut that will not loosen by hand, you’ll appreciate this tool’s power. The Earthquake Impact Wrench is an affordable way to get the job done with a torque range of 50-500 LBS.-FT., a working pressure of 90 PSI and three forward speeds. Make dropping a tooth or two with an aftermarket front sprocket easier with this tool.”

And it’s not just the magazines. Tool hounds at home also like the Earthquake impact wrench. For example, on this thread in GarageJournal.com’s forum, several members admitted their fondness for the air tool:

“I’ve had one for a bit over a year and have used it quite a bit. I have yet to come across something that I was unable to get off with it…”  strizzy

“I bought one a couple of years ago and couldn’t be happier with it. Incredible power and comfortable grip…. It’s been used and abused and just keeps on going. I’m sure keeping it lubed properly helps too. With an adapter and a Budd socket it even removed nuts from a truck that someone had swaged on with a cold chisel to make sure they NEVER came off. This thing had enough power to take them off right through the bunged up threads. I like it so much I’m thinking of buying their 3/8″ Earthquake…”  Curmudgeon

“I got the 1/2″ one too. I use it every once in a while to remove some rusty hardware on my 20 year old sports car (read: bolts that have not been touched in a long time) and the Earthquake does it without any trouble. Its a great purchase even if it was double the price. But since its not…stop typing and go buy one!”  sunshineFC3s

I couldn’t have said it better myself. The Earthquake impact wrench comes with:

+Precision machined to master-mechanic standards
+Most powerful wrench in its class
+Variable speed reversible
+Less vibration and lighter than the competition
+Handle-vented to direct exhaust away from user
+Twin-hammer delivers more torque to the anvil
+Three forward speeds

I know… you’re heading out the door. Don’t forget your 20% OFF COUPON!!
