I bought one of the 10" 60T carbide table saw blades. 20 bucks and so far cuts like a dream. Only problem.............it "sings" like crazy. I'm trying to figure out how to stop that.

I never shot with glass bead before I need it to take paint off a aluminium wheel

Hello, subarub4,

We certainly do appreciate your enthusiasm for HF products.

However, not all of us have the HF catalog memorized, nor do we have it bookmarked for quick reference.

You may want to consider describing the HF items that you are referencing.

Thanks, and cheers!

I initially wanted to buy my father a true Workmate but wasn't happy with the one I looked at in Home Depot this week and I'm glad I ordered these over theirs.
I pickup up a couple workmate clones last year at Menards for I think around $10 or $15. Works as a decent miter saw stand using a couple C-clamps.

their torque wrenches are a big fail.

the internals of mine broke after a few weeks of use.

I recommend the craftsmen torque wrench, i think it typically goes for 129.99 or so. Very very good wrench.

Are you talking about this torque wrench?

http://www.harborfreight.com/3-8-eig...rench-807.html

i've used it on my tires to 65 Ft lb with no issues.. it's still in the back trunk of the car too I've had it for about 5 months now.

What's funny is that multiple people have commented on the torque wrenches before on here, and have reported that they are durable and, supposedly, very accurate.

You are the first person I have seen post here that didn't like the HF torque wrenches. Both of mine have worked great for what they are and are pretty accurate compared to my snap on wrench which I have calibrated when needed.

Yep. Never had a problem. They always passed calibration tests. One of the best values at HF.

Also the first person to say the Craftsmen torque wrenches are any good. The locking rings always break, the internals come loose, and they don't hold a cal. Just had a fairly new Craftsman fail on me this Summer. Everything I could find online said the HF ones are very good. Ran across a post by a guy who claimed to be a professional calibrator and he said the HF and Husky brand wrenches hold their cal as well as any Snap On. HF wasn't having a sale that weekend so I bought the Husky.

Guess I'm lucky here cause the HF I go to doesn't have any type of notice on what to or what not to use the coupons on. I haven't tried it on any big item but if it's not posted or on the fine print, what leg do they have to stand on.

Amarillo's HF has the notices laminated and posted EVERYWHERE. Don't know if my next three closest stores (Lubbock, Abilene or Wichita Falls) do, or not? Anyone??
