Re: LED Shop Lighting

There's got to be some claims coming over Trans-Fat :D Nothing is more disgusting than margarine, and the general rule is that food prepared with artificial vegetable grease is nowhere near as good as the real thing. Now it looks like real food was better for us all along. They're even telling us t...

Re: LED Shop Lighting

Oh, boy. Do you really want to get into a thread-killing argument that will bore everyone to death? The Internet forum trick of insisting people perform outrageously burdensome research in order to prove trivial points is pretty worn out.

Re: LED Shop Lighting

I have to disagree. Doctors were behind the saturated fat scare, and the parrot thing is just ridiculous. You can't blame journalists for the 50 years we spent eating poisonous margarine and thinking it was a good idea.

Re: Something good about Harbor Freight

I second the recommendation for the Pass/Fail thread. There is no point in pretending everything HF sells is garbage. And some of the garbage can be turned into good tools.

Think I'll go with the Wiha.....started shopping on Amazon today. I'm not hooked up with a Snap On industrial seller anymore, and they are scary expensive if you are not.

I should add that the Weras I got are MADE to be beaten with hammers. They have steel caps on the butts.
