Unfortunately, the finished workbench doesn't fold completely flat. But the workbench does function as I desired: it's a sturdy, portable workbench that I can easily carry around the house or out into the back yard to exercise my woodworking prowess. Adding a few extra speed clamps and a portable carpenter's 6" vise, and I'm good to go (my first project was to make and attach two ¼" wooden facing pieces to that 6" carpenter's vise's metal jaws).
I have good news for every women reading this article. Men are ridiculously easy to buy for. Seriously! We complicate things because we are complicated. We want pampered, soft, time away from the kids and a night of passion with the man we love. We want clothes that fit and flatter, preferably on sale. Today, we focus on the top five things that (almost) any guy will love.
So last weekend I ventured to Harbor Freight to pick up their little 8 pound inverter welder. I spent $200 though because I needed a good autodarkening helmet, a chipping hammer, and some magnets. I got the 2 year warranty just in case. Yes I know, many people like to give the Chinese welders a bad rap. But let me just say that this little welder is quite good considering the money. It is not meant for the professional welder who does structural work but for art purposes it suits me fine. I am using 6013 1/16 " electrodes at this time. I have noticed they are a bit shallow and sometimes on small joints I have to go over them because the first time it is only flux that really lays down. Any civilized suggestion is appreciated.
Aside from all the success and great prices on tools, most people want to know if the tools you get from Harbor Freight are of good quality. We are taught from a young age that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But this is not always the case as I have come to find out. Harbor Freight offers some great quality tools at very competitive prices.
The weight and dimensions of the load will determine whether the shipment is a full truckload (FTL), a less than truckload (LTL), or a volume/partial truckload (VPTL or PTL). A shipment totaling only a few pallets or a few crates, generally not using more than 10 to 16 feet of trailer space (depending on carrier), means that your shipment qualifies as LTL. These types of shipments require your commodity be assigned a freight class via an item classification system. Note for FTL or flatbed customers, prepare to make arrangements to load and unload the shipment from the truck especially if the desired goal is to save money. The maximum weight for a truckload is usually around 40 to 44 thousand pounds (18 to ~20 thousand kilograms ). If your shipment occupies 12-14 linear feet or more of trailer space, then it qualifies as a volume or partial load.
