Despite some other reviews on the web about this famous retailer, I find that they fill a niche and give consumers a choice as to their specific needs and budget for their hardware products. I find them to be of great quality and have no problem recommending them for some of your hardware needs. They have been in business for over 40 years. Business don't stay in business that long if they are not providing some value to consumers.
Obtaining a precise weight measurement for the freight can often present difficulties as LTL carriers price shipments based upon the weight as well as the freight class. You may be a shipping veteran reading this article with an industrial weight scale at your warehouse, so this may be a topic you are familiar with, but residential shippers do not often have access to a scale, and we have some tips on how to obtain an accurate weight measurement. Try locating the details of any and all model numbers for your products online, and a weight measurement may be found. In cases when you only have boxes to palletize, stand on a scale and weigh yourself first. Then, stand on the scale with boxes and subtract your body weight from the measurement, and you can target an accurate weight that way. Remember, the pallet will add about 40 pounds to the shipment, and crates may add up to or even more than 50-60 pounds. When you have your shipment prepared, it is time to bring out the tape measure and obtain the length, width, and height (L x W x H).
So first thing you want to do to get started is to cut the flaps free at the top and the bottom of the box so the flaps remain intact. Find the seam where the machine glued the box together and cut along the crease originally made when the box was assembled. Don't bother trying to save the flap here as it usually tears the veneer from the corrugation.
Before you buy a central pneumatic compressor, you should think about what you will be using it to power. You may need to use it on small projects or you may want it around for occasional use. Some users like to have one to use for car tires. It only takes seconds to inflate a tire. A task like this does not require a large tank capacity or a lot of psi. But, if you need to use nail guns, air cutters, a caulk gun or a spray gun, you will need a larger tank and more psi. These are common tools used during home improvement projects and construction jobs.
You have just finished trimming and rubbing thirty dollars worth of brisket. You wrap that baby up and slide it into the fridge to mellow overnight. You then head off to bed and sleep peacefully, dreaming of that mouth-watering chunk of heaven. Morning comes, and after looking over the newest Harbor Freight catalog while drinking a cup of coffee, you decide to get started on the fire. Without warning, panic strikes. Should I use all wood, or should I use charcoal too? How much wood? How much charcoal? You are now adrift on the sea of indecision.
Each of the hand crank lead screws goes through an end plate that's bent from the leg support sheet metal. If you look closely, you'll notice that the lead screw plate is secured to the sidewalls by two sheet metal "ears" and two small dimples in the sidewalls. That looks like a potential source of failure downstream: nothing prevents the sidewalls from separating and allowing the crank to become loose. My fix? Simple: I installed a clamping and securing bolt through the sidewalls just behind the end plate. To secure the sideplates and preventing them from spreading apart, about 1 inch from the end plate, I drilled a ¼" clearance hole through the two sideplates (that also mount the legs) and put a 1 ½ inch long, ¼ -20 bolt with a washer and a locknut. Tightening the locknut makes the endplate securely clamped to the sidewall plates; this will prevent any tendency for that endplate holding the leadscrew and cranking handles from coming loose over time.
