    Not exactly a 'new' tool

    but worth sharing.

    Copied from my tractor forum:

    {Quote} I guess, like most HF stuff, the final engineering is up to you. {Quote}


    Edit: Sorry, the 'quote' marks didn't transfer from another forum to this one. No Woodford Reserve involved. Mores the pity.

    Were you planning on sharing that with us? Or am I missing something here, Carol?

    Sorry if it wasn't clear, Tony. The remark is referring to the quality or lack thereof of Harbor Freight tools, meaning that often the end consumer must find a way to make it work.

    Carol, maybe Tony was referring to the blank/missing "copy/quote" in your OP? Then again maybe not and I'm missing the gist

    I'm betting that 'Woodford reserve anesthesia' might have something to do with this


    EDIT: never mind, I'm still a little foggy myself....had to re-read it twice ....carry on

    Double Edit: after another read, it looks/reads kinda like you're replying to the 'copied from' which would be missing from the post in that scenario...again, it's too early

    I find it about 50/50 between fixing the engineering, fixing the fit and finish, replacing inadequate parts, and having it not be fixable at all. I guess that's about four 50's.. Hmmm.
