The Camouflage Utility Blanket, Projectile Cantaloupe and Haute Couture Fashion

utility-blanketThe 72″ x 80″ blanket is big enough to wrap around most furniture and thick enough to protect finishes. Double-stitched for durability, the blanket is ideal for moving, placing items in storage or protecting furniture during construction. Customers love this blanket though we have to admit, there have been a lot of questions about why the blankets have a camouflage design. It all started back in the early 2000’s. Fashion icon Valentino was reviewing fabrics for his spring line.

While pondering a bolt of raw silk, he was suddenly struck in the head with a cantaloupe (long story, but will suffice to say never stand within throwing distance of your personal assistant who’s on her third day of the Scaresdale diet). He was temporary rendered unconscious. While unconscious, he dreamed that he was a general in the fashion army and wore a camouflage field uniform, a.k.a. fatigues. He was meeting with his two military advisors, Giselle Bündchen and Kate Moss, to plan an all-out offensive on Michael Kors for selling out to Target. In his dream, he turned to Giselle and said “Darling, why do they call what I’m wearing fatigues?” To which she responded, “Because, darling, camouflage is so bourgeois, you feel fatigued just wearing it.” Valentino woke from his dream with two things: a nasty lump on his head from the projectile cantaloupe and the commitment to integrate camouflage into haute couture fashion.

As coincidence would have it, Valentino’s stepsister’s second cousin once removed was friends with the first cousin of the ex-wife’s niece of the woman who happened to be married to a buyer at Harbor Freight who was forced to go to a fashion show while vacationing with his wife in New York where Valentino’s new line of camouflage fashion was being revealed. On the way home from the fashion show, he too was struck by a cantaloupe (long story, but will suffice to say never stand within throwing distance of a malfunctioning mechanical orangutan at a produce stand). He woke up with two things: a nasty lump on his head from the cantaloupe and, well, you can figure out the rest… The 72″ x 80″ Camouflage Utility Blanket from Harbor Freight Tools—the perfect integration of function and fashion.

Inspect an Engine, Recover Your Keys or Discover Proof That Atlantis Existed!

It’s something you may not think you need, but once you own one, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it! The High Resolution Digital Inspection Camera with Recorder from Harbor Freight Tools is an amazing device that enables you to view and access tight spaces that would normally be obscured or downright impossible to reach! A flexible 3 ft. longhigh rez digital inspection camera boroscope provides superior image clarity as you maneuver it around engine parts to find the source of your problem. Still can’t find the problem? Then attach the mirror accessory to the end of the scope so you can view behind objects. There’s that pesky leak in the water hose! Or maybe you dropped your keys between the stove and counter and can’t retrieve them. Secure either the hook or magnet attachment and feed the boroscope down the narrow space. There’re your keys! Now you can pull them to within reach.

Features include 5x digital zoom for precision inspection, onscreen horizontal/vertical image reversing, video-out cable for viewing images on an external monitor, USB compatibility for use with a laptop or home computer and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Just think of all the other applications where this High Resolution Camera with Recorder would come in handy—plumbing, electrical work, fixing appliances, archeology… you’re in an Egyptian pyramid. A sarcophagus lies in front of you. It looks sealed save for a tiny hole formed from 3000 years of corrosive bacteria. You insert the boroscope with the oil and scratch-resistant lens to probe the inside. At first, you can only see what appears to be sheets of papyrus but you probe further and find the mummified remains. The body is well-preserved and by the neck area you see what appears to be gills! Then you move toward the hands… they’re webbed! Seems like the body of an Atlantian but more investigation is needed—why would an Atlantian be buried in an Egyptian tomb? You move the scope up the torso and there’s the proof you’ve been looking for, a faded yet distinguishable name tag that reads: “Hello, I’m Steve Johnson”. According to familytree.com, Steve Johnson was a papyrus salesman from Atlantis whose territory included Mesopotamia, San Diego and Egypt! He was so successful at selling papyrus, he was revered by the Egyptians and buried as a king along with several product samples of his papyrus. That’s where the expression “Buried in paperwork” comes from… Anyway,  there’s your proof. Case closed.

While this would have been an excellent tool for burning witches back in the day, we’ve got a whole different (and perhaps a slightly more PC) idea for Halloween: “aging” wood props. If you’re planning on having a casket or two lying around the yard, an rotting cemetery fence or some other “old” wood display, this propane torch is great for getting the right look. Here’s a customer video on how it works:

Unique Items by Biff: Electric Chain Saw Sharpener

 Electric Chainsaw Sharpener

 

There’s nothing worse than a dull chain saw blade! Well, maybe war is worse. Then right after that, a dull chain saw blade. World hunger is pretty bad, too. Okay, so it’s war, world hunger and then a dull chain saw blade. Whoops, forgot about car accidents—those aren’t so great. Recap: war, world hunger, car accidents—and then a dull chain saw blade! Avian flu. Not great either. But slightly better than a broken microwave oven, which is still high up there on the list. And what about those price tags that you try to peel off new purchases, but the glue backing leaves a tacky residue mark and even when you run your fingernail across it, you can only get rid of a little bit of it? Just terrible. Let’s review: war, world hunger, car accidents, avian flu, broken microwave oven, price tags that leave a tacky residue mark on new purchases—and then a dull chain saw blade. Forgot some: every Pauly Shore movie ever made, fat-free ice cream, spider bites and the partial government shutdown. I just got a chill down my spine thinking about fat-free ice cream. Final list: fat-free ice cream, war, world hunger, car accidents, avian flu, broken microwave oven, price tags that leave a tacky residue mark on new purchases, every Pauly Shore movie ever made, spider bites, partial government shutdown and a dull chain saw blade. It just doesn’t get worse than that!

While we don’t claim to be miracle workers here at Harbor Freight Tools, we do have a miraculous item that can eliminate at least one of the worst things—the Electric Chain Saw Sharpener. Mounting to a bench, wall or vise, the Electric Chain Saw Sharpener generates up to 4200 RPMs of grinding speed to quickly and easily sharpen chain saw blades thus improving the life span and cutting power of your chain saw. The chain vise adjusts to all chain designs and pitches while the chain rotation rollers advance links to eliminate frustrating set-up time. A 4-1/4” x 1/8” grinding wheel with 7/8” arbor is included and replacement wheels are also available through Harbor Freight. It’s a must-have item! And be sure to keep an eye out for other must-have items coming down the pipeline, including spider bite salve, peace treaties (10-pack) and the revolutionary fat infuser.
