    So there I was at Northern tool. They had a sale that ended today and there was a welding hood that had good reviews and since another hood can't hurt and I had some NT coupons that needed used I got that hood with blue flames on it. Stopped at the "50% off of lowest clearance price" rack and didn't need any jersey gloves or receiver hitches but I seen a big steel box barely peeking out at the bottom that had several more of those gloves n such piled on it. I said to myself, self, reckon what that is? I uncovered it and slid it out. Why, it's a electric over hydraulic rebar cutter. Hey, it cuts from 5/16" dia to 1" dia. I might maybe ever use it. Dang, it once was $629, then $449, then $308 and now $126! Hey, salesguy! So your tellin me I can buy this thing for 50% of $126?? Yep, he said. I said well I'm pretty much forced to buy it then. It was/is heavy!! My 81yo dad said he'd carry the welding hood and off we went.
    I'll tell ya what, I don't think I need it bad but I bet I'll use it. I figure to just leave her sitting on a work bench for cutting chain and anything else that I don't wanna fire up a gas axe for. I cut some 3/8, 3/4 and 1" bolts with it. It walks right thru em.

    I'm the same way. I can't turn down a bargain most of the time. The guy next door offered me a 2000 watt Honda inverter generator from where he worked for $400. He said they were selling off some extra ones. I told him to pick through them and get me a good one. He said he didn't have to ,they were all new. About a week after I paid him the $400 he had it for me. Heck , now I've got three generators.

    I agree that your hands were tied and you had no choice other than taking it home. Good score.

    Heck of a deal. We have a Harbor Freight coming to Ponca City in the near future. A lot of their stuff is junk, but some is really good if one knows how to take care of it. My pneumatic drills in 1/4 and 3/8" chucks have served me well over thirty years of industrial use with proper lube that most people seem to think they don't need.
    The pneumatic wrenches the same. Keep 5 drops of lube in them every time one uses them, they will last forever.
    The 3500lb winch for the ATV has very high ratings from users. Better than some of the name brands.
