I feel like I'm cheating on America when I buy stuff from Harbor Freight. I'm not a huge "buy American" guy or anything, I'm realistic about the shoes I wear, clothes I wear and the bike parts I use. Even my Japanese motorcycles. But HF stuff is so cheap and just, dirty. This tool cart is probably made out of old nuclear waste containers and painted with 100% lead paint. I would never eat after touching it without scrubbing my hands. Same with the angle grinder I've used every night for a week. And the welder I was given a while back, which was actually a gift but it still came from HF. But it works and I can afford this stuff, even if it's essentially disposable. I burn through some angle grinders. This is the second one in less than a year and this cart is a good place for stickers....


  1. Did you assemble that thing? I've had bike builds that were easier than putting one of those together.

  2. Yes! It took longer to put the stupid cart together than to do the work I wanted to use it for.
