Hancho has a garage full of harbor freight and craftsman tools.....

Up until a month ago when he used my cordless drill he did not even have a drill with a 1/2" chuck...

I agree there are some tools that are ok to have cheap others you are much better off spending the money in the first place because you will end up spending it over time and you will still have a cheap POS tool.

That being said I have a few harbor freight tools, most all are types of tools that have no ware items or required for strenth. Except for a grinder, and that thing was $20 I have had it for almost 10 years it has built two rigs and gets the shit worked out of it and it still works great.... (im sure it will crap out on me this weekend now that I hyped it up...lol)

RONG. If SelfCenteredHancho is doing it, then it is right for everyone else. I figured you would have known that by now.

Hahah. I was going to point that out too, but I figured I would let it slide. Hancho talks like he has a garage filled with Snap-On or something. Smoke and Mirrors.

Problem with buying real quality tools is blowing your whole wad on a few items and then not having enough tools to do shit. I worked next to a fucker like that, everything he had was way over the top but his toolbox was full of air. A $300 Dotco air grinder but had to borrow my allen wrenches and hand tools. My suggestion is having a balance.

People keep saying "TV"...whats the point in having a TV in the shop? Personally, when I got time to spend in the shop, I'm too busy to watch TV. I can do that in the house, sitting on my ass in a recliner.

How else can you keep track of racing? TV is the best method, its a must have for a garage.
