Whatever you happen to have stored in the Trunk Organizer will sit safely while you drive, thanks to non-slip pads.  This way, you know your supplies, tools, or other materials won’t shift and won’t be damaged during transportation.  And when the tool case isn’t in use, it easily folds down to be conveniently stored away until it’s needed.  Lightweight and durable, you just might need to get an extra one for the family.  Otherwise, they’ll constantly be asking to borrow it.  And who needs the hassle?  Not you.  That’s why you’re getting the Trunk Organizer in the first place.

“These things were really a bargain. Bought 2 to put in the back of my 2012 GMC Terrain and I couldn’t be happier. Great for keeping those bags of groceries and other loose items from rolling around. They fold up nicely, and compact if you need to put bigger items in the back. Don’t go spend a fortune at other places, buy these. I plan on getting 1 or 2 more for my wife’s car trunk.” – by Carl from Springfield, MO

“I wanted something to keep my Subaru Outback’s rear space organized. I found these and took a chance. I bought two and couldn’t be happier. I use one for all my usual storage (first aid kit, wipes, tarp, etc.) and then I keep the other folded for use when I go shopping. They are great for keeping groceries in place. Nice grips on the bottom keep them from sliding. These are well-made and can be carried when full.” – by JJ from Connecticut

“These things are great! I bought one to keep in the trunk of my wife’s car and by now we’ve bought 3 of them…” – by Pete from San Antonio, TX

As you can see from these fan reviews, these Trunk Organizers are kindof like Lays potato chips; you can’t have just one.  Once you see how useful these storage containers are (and affordable at just $10.00 each), you’ll want to pick up a couple extra for additional tasks.  Keep items from sliding, spilling, breaking, or leaking with this tough and durable Trunk Organizer!

“This little devil can grip and rip! I purchased it in 2008 and thought I’d kill it off by now. It has a well-balanced design that allowed me to walk it out in soft tidal muck and back out again. Engine always starts easy. An incredible bargain. I’m sorely tempted to buy another one since they are on sale.” – by Greg from Florida “I am so glad I talked myself into purchasing this trencher. I have gotten so much use out of it in just the 2 weeks I have had it. I’ve dug a couple holes in hard ground for the trees my wife bought and I have used it to clear out a bunch of brush.” – by Skoalmt from Eureka, Ca “We have had this trencher for over 7 years and keep finding new uses every day. We have used it for everything from stump removal to digging out footers. Friends and family always want to borrow it and we have no problem letting them since we know it will get the job done.

Tale of the Tape

Sometimes the simplest tools can be the most effective.  Any do-it-yourselfer knows how essential tough, reliable tape can be and no self-respecting handyman would be caught without it.  Duct tape and electrical tape both are two indispensable items that you can never have enough of.  And, when it comes to high quality expendables, Harbor Freight Tools has everything you need.  Whether it’s traditional duct tape or electrical tape, with these handy items, you’ll be able to handle any sticky situation.

There’s no denying that duct tape is one of the most versatile and useful tools in the world.  If you don’t have a roll somewhere in your toolbox or garage, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself in a tight spot at one point or another and wish you did.  For just $4.29, you can pick up a big roll of 2” x 50 Yard Cloth Back Silver Duct Tape (or 4 rolls for $14.99) and be ready for just about anything.  From the more traditional uses like repairing air ducts and handling small household projects to more unique applications like patching a hole in a tarp or fixing broken hoses, duct tape can be a life-saver as well as just unbelievably useful.

“Incredibly strong, durable and very long lasting. I can honestly say it is the best duct tape I have ever used.” – by PRIMETIME from Houston, Tx

“I recently bought a roll of this tape and I am really impressed with its performance. It sticks as good as duct tape costing two times the price.” – by ironduke from Parts Unknown

So what about you electricians out there?  Need to stock up on electrical tape?  Of course you do because this stuff is the cousin of duct tape and just as important to have on hand.  Heavy duty electrical tape not only provides insulation for wiring jobs but also handles other tasks in a pinch.  With a tight grip and the ability to conform to sharp contours, electrical tape is pretty handy as just regular old tape too.  How many rolls of 60’ x 3/4″ Industrial Grade Electrical Tape do you think you could get for $4.99?  How about 10?  Only Harbor Freight sticks by that kind of deal.

image_21089

“I recently had to cut open some wire looms I’d taped up a few years back to move some harnesses and I noticed how well this stuff held up under the hood, through Michigan winters and salt. It’s about time to buy more so I figured I’d go ahead and review it. I like it!” – by EvilSteve from Warren, MI

You don’t have to be a professional grade contractor or run a repair shop to benefit from duct tape or electrical tape.  These are items that anyone should have readily available, just in case.  Even if they don’t provide a permanent solution, reliable tape can solve lots of problems temporarily and allow you to get some professional help if necessary.  But, if you like to handle things yourself, don’t hesitate to load up on this terrific tape.

The Quest for Fire Just Got Easier

Everyone knows that one of the essential components to camping (and surviving the elements) is the ability to make fire.  Sure, there are a few ways to go about it and if you really want to impress someone with your ingenuity and machismo, you can go down the rubbing two sticks together route.  But , if you just want to get warm and start heating up some food for the evening, you can do it the easy way, with the Magnesium Fire Starter from Harbor Freight Tools!

image_16350

 

Pocket-size and waterproof, the Magnesium Fire Starter is one tool that’s better to have and not need than the other way around.  With built-in flint, a striker knife and shaving saw, this handy tool has everything you’ll need in order to get a fire started quickly, even in damp or windy conditions.  And at just $2.79, it could be an inexpensive life-saver.  Wanna see it in action?

In case you need further evidence of this fire starter’s usefulness, here are a couple customer reviews to help spark your interest:

“I now always carry a magnesium fire starter when in the woods. About 10 years ago I was forced to spend an unplanned frigid night in the woods. I found a semi sheltered spot, improved it with some found materials, then gathered fire materials and pulled out my waterproof match tube. The supposed waterproof tube had allowed enough humidity in to turn the match heads to a brittle crust. None of them lit. It was now about 10 degrees F and pitch dark. I always carry 2 methods of fire starting, a lesson learned from my dad many years ago. I pulled out my BIC lighter and with cold numbed fingers flicked it several times until the spark wheel separated from the lighter and was lost somewhere in the leaf litter. It was a v-e-r-y long, v-e-r-y cold night, but a valuable lesson was learned. When it comes down to such a basic need, the method must be simple and bulletproof. This item meets that requirement. “ – by Veeguy from Wisconsin

“I started using this product more than 10 months ago. Since then, I have bought several more to keep in storage and packs whenever they go on sale, not that they are expensive anyway. I have tested many other similar fire-steel only and fire-steel plus magnesium bar combos, even some designed for special forces, and still haven’t found anything that beats this. The original magnesium fire starter I purchased was moved to my key chain right away and has withstood the stresses of daily wear. I still use it as I have found no need to find a replacement. The striker’s flat side produces the best sparks and shaves the magnesium the easiest, while the serrated side produces saw dust style tinder in a pinch. I have been able to take nothing but this fire starter and produce a good fire with everything from sticks up to medium-sized felled branches. It would of course be easier to use a knife and hatchet to make fire wood and tinder but as I said, this tool is able to do it if you have nothing else, and that proves its worth. The original fire starter still on my keychain is used and mistreated often, but the fire-steel is still solidly attached and the only material lost is the deep saddles I’ve carved in from using it so much. I would suggest it for anyone from avid hunters and survivalists to preppers and emergency kit builders.
– Perfect for storing away in packs without taking up much room.
– Handy chain to keep together when not in use.
– A simple, no frills, straightforward tool!
– Must have!” – by Andrew the Enthusiast from Virginia

As mentioned by Mr. Vee and Mr. Enthusiast, the Magnesium Fire Starter is a great survivalist tool that is a perfect addition to any pack, whether you’re just going out for a hike or for an extended excursion.  While you’re stocking up, be sure to also check out the 8” Survival Knife with a compass built right onto the handle.  The handle also contains a survival kit which includes a sewing kit, safety pins, buttons, fishing line and hook, 6 matches, and fire-starting paper. With these two tools in your pack, you’ll be prepared to handle just about any situation, all for under $15!

weldingspoon

Even though it may not be used in every project, the Welding Spoon is a tool that many professional welders consider essential.  By placing the curved copper plate behind the hole you’re trying to fill, the Spoon not only supports the weld but also absorbs the heat, allowing for a cleaner finish.  In fact, with this tool in your arsenal, you’ll be able to fill holes without leaving any evidence at all that there was a hole there in the first place.  And best of all, at just $9.49, this inexpensive item won’t leave too big a hole in your tool budget either.

And what do our customers think?

“Made welding thin sheet metal easier. Just getting back into welding and this really works well.” – by SOCAL SCOUT from Irvine, CA

Thanks, SOCAL, for that review.   Short and sweet, just like your next project will be when you have this great Welding Spoon from Harbor Freight Tools in your Welding Cabinet.  With a dimpled vinyl grip, this welding accessory is both easy and comfortable to use.  And while you may not use it often, when the time comes to fill holes in metal, you’ll be glad you filled your tool box with this simple welding accessory!

Get a Load of These Steel Loading Ramps!

Getting large equipment, ATVs, or anything heavy into the bed of your pick-up truck is now easier than ever! The days of straining your back and begging unwilling neighbors for help are gone thanks to the easy-to-use Steel Loading Ramps from Harbor Freight Tools.  With these simple ramps on hand, you’ll have no trouble loading recreational vehicles, appliances, motorbikes, and anything up to 1,000 pounds into your truck, van, or trailer.  And they’re more reliable and safer than wooden planks or self-made ramps.  Because, let’s face it, when you’re working with heavy items, safety should be priority number one.

Whether you’re taking the big air compressor out to the job site, loading your riding mower for repairs, or taking an old refrigerator off to the junk yard, there’s no telling when you might need to load up or unload some heavy stuff.  The loading ramps take a split second to set up and, when you’re done, they store easily in your truck or workshop.  And if that info doesn’t get you ramped up for these helpful items, maybe these actual customer reviews will:

“Have had these for 20 years or more. Mainly use them to load a 500 lb. electric wheelchair in my minivan (use them to load everything and anything that has wheels too… rider mower, go-cart, steam cleaner and even some things that don’t).  Well worth it.” – by stonekeeper from Pennsylvania

“These are great. Yes they are a bit heavy and don’t fold but these will get the job done. No issues and I have not flexed one yet. Use them all the time too. Abuse them also with no issues.” – by GiXeR from Midlothian, Va

“I use these all the time for loading stuff into my enclosed trailer, to load heavy boxes, etc… They are very safe and have stood up to my everyday use for the last year and half. I even ran over them once with my farm tractor, 100 HP tractor. Didn’t hurt them. So don’t be afraid to buy.” – by Dishtech43 Dave from Parts Unknown

Even if you use these ramps frequently, they hold up and make your life a little bit easier.  I certainly wouldn’t recommend running them over with your tractor but it’s nice to know that Dishtech Dave has done the research for us.  So if you’re looking for an easy way to load stuff onto your vehicle, don’t be afraid to buy these tough Steel Loading Ramps at your local Harbor Freight store!

Safely Handles Small Jobs!

In case I’m not pressing the point enough, check out what some actual customers had to say:

“I am using this press to squeeze the juice of vegetables and fruits from the production of a meat grinder. It is tough enough for that and its four inch throat guarantees a small pressing area and ensures enough pressure to adequately squeeze my fruit and vegetable pulp through a flour sack towel. That gives me juice without the pulp. I am not using it for its intended use so my comment may inspire someone else to find another non-standard use for this arbor press. I no longer work on cars professionally, but it may serve double duty at some time in the future.” — xenonracerx from Las Vegas, NV

“I use this to press bearings in and piston pins, also have fixed body panels with it. A+ and a great value cant go wrong” —  Joel from Rogers, MN

“I use this press to press in leaf spring bushing on almost all my suspension projects. I mounted it into my vise and press in all the bushing with no problem. A lot faster than using my 20 ton h frame press.” — James the fabricator from Lakewood, Wa

And I’m willing to be that James the Fabricator is telling the truth despite his profile name.  Bigger or more powerful presses can’t handle the smaller jobs tackled by the 1 ton arbor press. For smaller work pieces, you’ll want to be sure to use a press that can handle the work safely while still applying enough force. And while you’re at it, be sure to get a good look at Harbor Freight’s line of vices too. The 6″ Portable Carpenter’s Vise or the 4” Drill Press Vice are a great addition to work you may be doing on the arbor press.

You’ll be hard pressed to find another arbor press for sale at the same low cost as this one offered by Harbor Freight. Other retailers sell similar presses for much more!

The Perfect, Cost-Effective Reloading Bench

workbench 4-14At just $165– and even less with your 20% Off Coupon– you would be hard-pressed (see what I just did there?) to find a better reloading bench for a limited space than the Windsor 60-in. 4-Drawer Hardwood Workbench. At over 110 lbs. empty, it’ll stay in place when you lift up the press, and with 60 inches of table surface and four drawers, there’s plenty of room to work and store your supplies. The work bench also includes a bottom shelf for larger tools as well. A wood block vise is included to enhance usability and a clear lacquer finish protects the top of your shop bench from wear and tear.

“ClemBert,” a member of the FiringLine.com forum, came up with this swell mod for his Harbor Freight workbench. First, he modified two of the drawers into one deep drawer.

“I used hurricane framing ties to connect the drawers together leaving the bottom out of the drawer on the top.”

He then made a 1.5″ platform for the reloading press, using leftover 3/4″ plywood glued together. A 2×4 was glued and bolted to the bottom of the platform. This allowed him to use the vice that comes with the workbench to hold the platform when in use.

After the platform was completed, he bolted the reloading press to it.

“Great Torch. I bought this to light my charcoal since I run my bbq pit and smoker pretty frequently. Got this sucker on sale with 20% off. Connected the hose and hooked it to my propane tank in about 2 minutes. I used a flint striker to light it and I had a full load of charcoal ready to cook in about 5 minutes. I also used this to burn some weeds in the driveway and back yard. Great buy hands down!” — by dat504life from Torrance, CA

“Wow compared to my last burner, this is a 700% improvement. I was almost scared to hit the TURBO feature and I like fire!! FIRE GOOD! cant wait for the weeds next season… they don’t stand a chance. the only thing they could improve is a little longer hose, but to me the way it works is all I care about.” – by regg187 from LHC, AZ
