    My Harbor Freight 6" bench buffer is still going and it's 6 years old. It's used mainly on my silverware artwork and small stainless pieces. Cheap at $25.00 back then.
    Their 1x30 belt sander is holding up so far. That too is 6 years old but had to do some improvising on the belt pulley. Not bad for $22.00.
    Harbor Freight has really increased their prices.

    a part of the pricing increases at hf are due to import tariffs put in place in the past 4 years!

    They have also cut way back on their freebies. I guess when times get hard freebies go away and prices go up. The people that really need something still buy it.

    The freebies were just to get people in the door. Any tool junkie can’t spend less that 30 minutes in that store with out buying something they did not know harbor freight carried.
    Lincoln, ESAB, Thermal Dynamics, Victor, Miller, Dewalt, Makita, Kalamzoo. Hand tools, power tools, welding and cutting tools.

    I took real advantage when they had their magnetic strips. Those are handy as is or remove magnets from channel.
    I use single magnets for dry fitting my artwork. Works great in designing instead of tacking.

    Higher prices, changing suppliers, end of coupons, end of freebees. Next thing you see wil be groceries in the stores. Something tells me management has changed.
