Another Cheap Tool Store
Here is a place a lot like Harbor Freight. Pretty much the same quality I think. I live about 25 miles from one of their stores, so returns aren't a big deal. They also have a traveling tool sale coming to a town near you, maybe. Anyway cheap tools are what they are, and I thought you guys might like another place to browse.

I've been to a few of their sales. Some of their stuff is really good (I've got a set of those wobble extensions that have saved my butt many times over 6-7 years), and some is pretty bad (stay away from the el cheapo screwdrivers). About like HF from what I hear. Just watch what you buy, I guess. Most of the stuff is decent though.

In a while, Chet.

i bought a drill set from those truck sales that come into town twice a year, anyway the small bits bent, not broke, that is some cheap metal, i know better, but damn they were only 5 bucks

I bought a buffer for $12.
I've been there before and they had packages of assorted foam brushes for a penny each.
My HVLP is one of their Speedway Series guns. Looks just like the HF gun.

If you can ever catch them when they have the fountain pump for $10, its a great buy. I built a parts washer from an old sink and a 55 gallon barrell. It was perfect for it. I mounted it at the bottom of the barrell. It pushes water through a 3/8" hose 5 feet vertical with plenty of flow.

About 10 years ago, I bought a drill press from them when they were in town. The only had one left and it was the display. I got a discount because I didn't get to assemble it. What a deal. LOL

I also bought a hammer drill from them a couple of years ago. The first time I went to use it, it lasted about 2 minutes, then started smoking. Real piece of crap. OH WELL

I've bought a few tools from them - price is right - be aware the air and electric tools are all refurbished .

I found a link that I had saved in my tools folder for Cummins Tools.

Enjoy shopping.

In a while, Chet.
