Mine only has a 6-cm maximum grip-width, and a cam-type "snapping" closure when the prongs actually touch. Not much in the way of fine motor control.

But it does seem like a good value, provided you don't lift something much heavier than a couple pounds, and don't twist it. Mine hasn't broken after a dozen or so uses. You should explain exactly how it was broken in your scenario.

I just had this purchased for me. After reading the comments on here though I think I'll not be wasting my time to try and even hook it up to the compressor. Just return it for a refund or another tool. Thought I'd save money getting it here. Proves to me might as well keep on getting the craftsman tools bought over the years.

In response to: 5-Piece Auto Trim and Molding Tool Set

I haven't used these for removing auto trim, but I have used them for other prying tasks around the house. They are very strong and are probably better to grab than a screwdriver. It is less likely to damage what you are prying on and the screwdriver.

I bout this tool and it works like a champ @ 1/2 the price of similar tools. Came in handy when chipping some old tile mortar off the floor. The Blades do wear out pretty quick though.

I would advise that you keep it facing properly into the wind. Our unit was often at a rather obtuse angle because of the very lose fitting between the two factory-supplied poles; I presumed that's how it vibrated to scare away the moles. Eventually, it split the metal ring that retains the ball bearings and the blade flew off. Fortunately no one was around to get hurt, but your wind conditions are likely to be as strong (or stronger) than our Buffalo winds, so do watch the mounting angle.

Also, have you tried streamers for scaring away the bird? I would think that long strips of canvas or other material a couple of inches wide would be scary to anything flying nearby, especially if it were long enough to actually (harmlessly) hit them.

Another thing to know is that the filaments in the bulbs fail due to bouncing.

In response to: 8" Black Cable Ties, Pack of 100

Matt [Visitor]
Bought the same ties, had somewhat similar experience. As long as the ties from the same package were used they worked fine, but as soon as I mixed them with another HF package, they started failing. Only use ties from the same package. By the way, I use these in drum making and they are pulled way tighter than normal. Home Depot ties failed miserably and cost a lot more.

Yes, it seems to be hitting this low price regularly. Watch for coupons in newspapers and directly from Harbor Freight.

On 6/14 I returned it for another. On 6/17 repeat. See a pattern? This new one will be sixth one. This time I sprang for the electric version. If the pneumatic one dies I'll pull out the electric.

I will be returning my 4th saw tomorrow. I have successfully cut sheet metal and even a bolt or two with it. The cutting part for me has been good. My problem has been that I get one use out of it. Second day the blade will not move just the sound of rushing air. Seems the shaft that moves the blade is binding up. Good thing it has a warranty. I guess as long as they keep taking it back I'll keep returning. Maybe some day I'll get one that lasts.

Mine died in 5 seconds. I wish I had seen this review beforehand. I hooked it up to my compressor, gave two quick blasts and it worked fine. I went to give it a third blast and it never worked again. I wish I had verified the pressure on the dial before I ran the tool, so I can't say for sure that it was at or below 90, but it was at 80 just after it died and all of my other air tools run fine. I'll try to return it and see it the replacement lasts long enough to try to cut something.

Yup, bought one. Tried it. I'm thinkin' maybe if I nuke the butter first, it might cut it. Save your money.

I had the exact same experience with this product. It now just hangs on my peg board as a useless decoration.

Thanks for this review. You saved me $14.14 (with TX sales tax) and your review of the $6.99 Air Cutter turned me on to something better.
