well, Home Depot and wal-mart are across the street from each other near me, and we have the 'super wally-wurld', thats open like 24 hours or whatever, so i use that for groceryshopping, and light tools and stuff.

But when the Depot is open, I go there. we dont have a Lowes as of yet, but they started building one last month, and are blasting the site with cool explosives. Only reason i like Sears, is any Craftsman tool I have ever bought or inherited, can be exchanged no questions asked with a newer model, no matter how old.

GO LIFETIME GARUNTEE!!!!

Our walmart and lowes ar side by side, home depot is across the street and I work at Kroger right in the middle of them both. However I get craftsman tools (sears) because of the lifetime garuntee, even if your parents give them tools they bought when they were teenagers.

I don't limit myself to just one store. I have a Walmart , Home Depot, Pep Boys, Checkers, Lowes and an Autozone within 3 miles of my house, they don't all carry the tools I need...... Very rarely do they even have the parts I need all in the same place.

It was about $520 including install supplies (roll of wire, breaker for the panel, extra valves, piping, compressor oil, etc)... That was before discounts.. I had a 10% off coupon from when a friend moved, so we used it...

ended up costing me about $470 when all was said and done.

Much better than my crappy little 15 gallon Craftsman compressor. This one's rated at 100% duty cycle so I can run it all day when sandblasting. my old one I could blast 30 sec, then wait 3 min to air back up.. do it again... etc etc etc. took 30 min just to blast my EGR valve before powdercoating. grrrrrr

Not bad.
For sandblasting tho, I got a friend with a full shop. Free dyno, sanblasting, alignment. Well its more of a barter deal, I help him out, he does the same back. Everyone is happy, :cheers:

HF has good prices, but most of the tools are also cheapola Made in China crap!! Stay away from their impact sockets and such, but if you need a cheap dir drill or grinder for a 1-2-3 use type of deal, they're fine.

When you look at their better stuff- like Campbell Hausfield air compressors, their prices are close to everyone else.

As I said before, their prices on the name brand stuff aren't that great..

I listed the C-H above because many people use them for lots of stuff, from impact wrenches to air compressors. They make *decent* tools. not the quality of IR, but good enough for the weekend wrenchhead.

I wouldn't touch the crappy cheapo tools at HF.. I've seen their impact sockets explode on a good impact wrench... I was lucky the first time, and I don't want to ever see it happen again..

IR stuff is good, but you can usually get the Craftsman stuff just a bit cheaper (almost all their stuff is made by IR)..
go to craftsman.com and search for item #19905
Then go to ingersoll Rand's website (www.irco.com) and search for a 2130.
same tool, slightly different appearance as IR has an updated design, Craftsman is still using the older design.
