    I thought it'd be something like that. We have similar stuff here but I had not seen one made of fibreglass.

    A wood lathe or anything without moveable parts.

    I bough some cheap sockets to take to the pick and pull so I don't have to worry about loosing my good sockets anymore. Also the nylon upholstery and panel removal tools are pretty nice for 6 bucks.

    I get some small stuff. I picked up a heat gun recently for $7 that works great for heat shrink. Beats a lighter. Also got a rivnut tool which works well enough for the price.

    There are some threads on other automotive/metal shaping sites where the take HF stuff and mod them. Things like bead rollers, english wheels, etc.

    Harbor freight is great for limited use/limited life tools that you need on the cheap and in a pinch. However, some of their stuff is actually not bad quality. I picked up an HVLP gun to use with my compressor for a speaker project a couple years ago and it worked great.

    I picked up some cable cutters from them. So far they've worked well and haven't broken on me.

    Picked up a security bit set yesterday for $5.99. Perfect for those star head screws in the Ram.
    "Pushy" has a completely different definition when Sean Connery says it.

    The pics don't really show how yellowed they were before but the difference was night and day. Definitely worth the ten buck.

    I also snagged a set of impact (made for air tool) 3/8 extenders and a supprisingly solid 3/8 ratchet for about $15.
