I just placed an order for a set of those punches. I too can put the brass tube to better use. $3.99 for the set, $2.95 shipping, and $5.95 Handling. 8) I guess 8)

Nice punch set from Harbour Freight. When I taught shop I purchased three small drill presses for Middle School shop class from Harbour Freight. They were $35.00 each. Pleased with their quality - they held up well against 7th and 8th graders.

Enco. I purchased my sanding supplies, saw blades and hand tools from Enco. Their quality ranges from poor to very good. Prices are very reasonable for bulk purchases.

For that price of shipping & handling I can save money by driving to there store which is a 60-mile round trip. I like going to their store cause I always come back with many things I like but dont need or never use. :mrgreen:

They have a store just off I95 in northern South carolina that has a tag sale the 1st sat of Oct. I stocked up on my way to vacation. The have the tag sale every month or quarter. It is a great way to pick up stuff at a discount. I am sure that you could call and find the schedule.

I never order less than $50.00 bucks then I get free shipping.
I can always find lots of things to buy.
Bought their 3 set combo of sockets 1/4 3/8 1/2 drives.
They are not bad but the ratchets aren't much.
Guys looking for a good but cheap tool these people can't be beat.

I have several of thier discount tools. @ sets of the deep 1/2 inch drive impact sockets, air wrenches, miscellaneous deep sockets, a trailer, etc. One of my favorite items though is the set of large offset box end wratcheting wrenches I bought on sale for $17. They go all the up to 1 1/8, and are real handy changing cub attachments. The closest store is about 180 mile round trip, so I tend to order a lot of my stuff. Most of the things I've bought have done well for my needs, but I did have a timing light with the adjustable advance I had to return.
