Getting ready for the axle rebuild, and took some of the advice from you all on tools at HF. Bought every thing I needed and more. Long story short, I spent over $200 there :whoops: I sprang for a 48 pc impact tool set ($89). Central Pneumatic is the brand. Hope it's not junk. Any body using air tools from HF?

I'm addicted to that place, I always buy something when I go in there as well. The way I see it, you get what you pay for so don't expect Snap on quality for cheap prices.

Seriously, $200 at HF is like buying half of their inventory. I use some stuff from there, but not things that I want to keep for a long time. They have great spare tools for trails and trunks. You wont feel bad if you lose your $5.00 wrench somewhere!

I have a ton of stuff from them. Most of my trail tools are Hf units. I won't cry when I leave them behind.

Most recently I bought a 2 ton engine hoist. $149 on sale and used that 20% coupon that was posted by Eric. Cept they sent it to me via e-mail.


Their sockets are a bit sloppy but for the price you can't beat them...

Additionally, they have an awesome waranty for how crappy their stuff is.

I killed one of their $29 impacts. about 2 years after I bought it. Took it back and the guy gave me a new one. No questions asked..

No doubt. Either I would've left the store with another cartload, or second guessed the airtools. But 4 airtools for $89! Couldn't pass it up

We use their impacts on our work trucks. We do underground, mostly 7/8 to 1 5/16. Anyways we buy their stuff as we lose a lot of it in the mud even if its painted orange. With a high end IR air gun we break the extentions from HF all the time but never a socket. Now we splurge on the extentions. Anyways I would say avoid the extentions and obviously the swivles from HF but the impact socket will last a long time. Let us know if you want to part with 1 1/4 or 1 5/16... Can never have enough
