    That looks a lot like what anyone can do with their free, built-in foot operated can crusher... I don't see the difference that makes it worth $5 :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    lol, that is pretty damn funny. :grin:

    I love HF though. Some tools and tool accessories just don't need to be super bling bling uber $pendy tool steel... thats when HF comes in with their hella cheap made-in-china junk. :) I have sockets, ratcheting wrenches, allen wrenches and a bunch of other HF stuff... haven't broken a single one yet, and believe me, I've been trying! :) its also a good place to get consumables, like cut off / grinding wheels and stuff. Home Depot wants like $2.50 for a single cut off wheel... why pay that much when I can get 10 of 'em for $6 at HF?

    Don't get me wrong, I love the place. I just got an e-mail "sale page" this morning and laughed when I saw the POS can crusher. i half expected it to be a cheap combat boot. :D
