    It’s hard to believe you actually used and recommended one of the worst products Harbor freight carries. i’m referring to the Pittsburgh clamps. The cheap ones simply don’t work they don’t have anywhere near the clamping force of the name brands and their design is defective from the start. The key mistake is putting the release lever on the back of the handle instead of the front like proper ones. Why is this an issue because when you go to press the one on the back you will pull the main trigger at the same time almost every time. This prevents you from actually releasing the clamp. As for price if you buy the multi packs the clamps that are usually on special around Father’s Day they’re not really that more expensive.
    Looks like you have the HF pull saw hanging there.

    You did a video of the Harbor Freight 10×18 wood lathe. Can you order a variable speed box instead of changing belt position

    These videos are very helpful. I worked at HFT & buy a lot from them. Sometimes you get awesome quality at budget prices, other times it’s better to spend more money on name brand products.

    On thing to remember. if you have an issue with your clamps simply take them back and get a brand new one, no questions asked. No need for a receipt either.

    I’ve had pretty good luck with the 13" Bauer plainer from HF. By no means is it perfect, cant get rid of all the snipe, but pretty decent with some planning

    Great video, I love your spray can rack, do you have a video on how to build?

  7. Yosbel Hernandez on July 19, 2023 at 3:02 pm

    Sorry for you’ll HF lovers. That place sucks. Try to return an out-of-the-box-broken-tool and see what happens. I can help w the answer. A 20% restocking fee is deducted!!! They are happy to steal 10 bucks from you knowing they are loosing a customer for life. Shame on you HF!!!!

    I have used their pocket hole jig for about 3 years now and find it a great tool. Much less expensive than the alternative at Lowe’s or Home Depot and, in some ways, better.

    Love your content. You have a lot more knowledge and experience than I do but give great practical info w/o talking down to your viewers.

    As someone who’s interested in taking up woodworking as a hobby, but doesn’t have a lot of money to put into it, thank you for making this. I really do appreciate these "cheap" hacks.

  12. Chris LaCava on July 19, 2023 at 3:16 pm

    You make that dust collector sound like the Jeep of the woodworking community. 😊

  13. Heather Pearce on July 19, 2023 at 3:17 pm

    Thank you! Your concise and thorough explanation of each use of the tools is awesome!
    Total beginner here. You took out so many other questions I had in one tutorial !

    Great info thanks

  16. andy emerson on July 19, 2023 at 3:24 pm

    I’ve had the Hercules 12 inch sliding miter saw for about a year now and I really like it. Works great!!!

  17. Cecil Ferris on July 19, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    Awesome, I am looking for a lathe, but not sure where to begin. Thanks for the video.

  18. Ken Burnette on July 19, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    it is nice to see someone else is looking for a barging, vs paying top price for a tool that’s not that better. More HF videos.

  19. Edwin Pagan on July 19, 2023 at 3:31 pm

    muy bueno el vdo

  20. Sean Murphy on July 19, 2023 at 3:33 pm

    Good video. Thanks

  21. Steve Kelley on July 19, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    Hear’s one most people don’t know. You can return the 6 inch when it stops working for you and get a new one. On the 24 inch and up c channel clamps go to Paul sellers and watch him fix those clamps.

  22. Jason Atkins on July 19, 2023 at 3:35 pm

    I got the same heat gun and works great 👍🏻

  23. Andrew Sherman on July 19, 2023 at 3:39 pm

    I have always had good luck with harbor freight. I think you nailed many of my cheap favorites on the head.

    I’ve never understood why everyone seems to hate Harbor Freight so much though. I think its just tribalism and brand loyalty that brings the hate…..
