Fock.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to stop by and see what they have.

I'm in the market for a shop vac and at some point an air compressor, though, on both items I want non-HF higher quality things that'll last. Definitely on the air compressor. But I wouldn't mind another set of tall jacks stands for the Jeep. . .

Or a bunch of air fittings to convert the A/C pump on my Jeep to an on-board air compressor system.

Harbor Freight often has a few different models of air compressors built by Campbell Hausfeld.

I got a small CH compressor from HF several months (or more) back. I know I posted about it but don't have time to search for those posts right now. It is only a 2 gallon model, if I remember correctly, but is just find for small work around the car and house, but I wouldn't try any heavy duty air tools with it.

As for the 20% off sale..... I knew about it, but have been otherwise preoccupied since Christmas Eve, so couldn't take advantage of it. Not that there is much I need from HF these days, anyway.

I went and looked. . . isle by isle, bin by bin. Found a lot of "neat" stuff but nothing I felt I "needed" to have.

Walked out empty handed.

Harbor Freight seemed to have a decent collection of air compressors and they'd probably work perfectly fine for me for ages. But . . .

I have my eye on the DeWalt D55155 compressor. It'll be put to good use when building my shed this spring (already have the framing nail gun). . . and there after I'll have a good, fast, high-flow compressor for anything else.
