    Can't do that, but here is one tip I can let you in on:

    When you are shopping in the store, don't always pass over the boxes/packages that are torn apart, taped up, or missing. Many times the manager will discount the item, just ask.

    I just assumed that HF ordered the boxes damaged and torn right from the factory. Are you telling me that they come undamaged?

    Here's one that's a keeper (well if it doesn't break).

    The long-nose version of the cheapest air impact wrench - #93566. Only $22. I like the long nose, it feels nicely balanced. Its a great improvement over the wrist-wrenching HF electric impact wrench for comfortable operation and instant torque.



    This isn't a twin to the similar inexpensive normal length air impact wrench. This has a CFM requirement of 4cfm vs 5 for the standard one. (And somewhere I saw a $14 coupon for the standard one).

    Torque seems plenty for lug nuts. If you need something stronger, pro grade, then I would step up to the 'Earthquake' model which is rated far more torque and has excellent reviews.

    An American made product....hmmm. What's the deal on that? Refurbs?
    It was a small ad on a big flier, but the name leaped out at me. Brand names? Sounds like what Radio Shack did, which really helped them, but
    HF? Could be the start of something interesting.
    I bought my DeWalt DW788 scroll saw from HF. Refurbished. Killer deal at $300.

    I'd steer clear of that Poulan saw, though. Probably a "Wild Thing", one of the worst saws you can buy. Poorly made, and will vibrate your hands off. You'd be lucky to get 20 hours out of it.

    I agree. Stay away form the Poulan products, especially chain saws.

    My preference in the chain saw Dept would be Echo if you want reliabilty and parts you can order/find without a hassel.

    and I sure do agree, since I own a 450 and 600 Echo!

    I have the air powered 3" cut off tool that works fine but it bogs down sometimes. I have been thinking about the electric 3" tool--same 3"--since it gets good reviews. I wonder if it has more power than the air powered one? I can get it for under $20 now.

    Here's the electric one. It seems to work well. Does anyone own one of these that can comment?

    and here's the one I currently have that seems underpowered even at high PSI and plenty of air.
    3" Variable Speed Air Cutter

    Thanks in advance.

    That looks like something I could find useful nowadays I have an air cutoff but at the present time I dont have the compresser volume to run it anymore.

    I never had much luck with HF electrical tools in the past. Unbelievably one tool has survived them all. An 18v 5 1/2" cordless trim saw with a 1hr charger. The battery that came with it has outlasted my Makita batteries and still holds a charge but of course the drill that came with it stripped out years ago.

    I've eyed that electric cut off tool a few times as well. The air powered one bogs down even on my 60 gallon, 5 HP compressor. I have the electric 14" metal chop saw and it works ok if you aren't too picky about getting a clean cut. Motor bearings aren't that good and it wobbles.

    I would imagine the small electric cut off tool would have the same problem, albeit on a much smaller scale.
