Wonder if they'd let you carry it on the plane like the OP is going to
do? I suspect anything with sharp edges would be a bad idea (regardless
of the quality) to carry on an airplane.

Yeah, I have the same set, it's fine. It surely won't last as long as
a $100 set, but in two years or so, I'll just drop another $22.99 on
I also have their $9 brad-point bit set (in the brick-sized metal box,
with 3 rows of bits up to 1/2"). It's been doing great for me for a
year now. Again, for it's price, I'll just replace it if some bits get
Same here. I got it at their regular sales both dial indicator and
base for $13. I have more than 80 clamps all types and sizes from HF.
it would have cost me a small fortune if I bought these elsewhere.
Never buy anything at HF, unless you check the prices first.
I am TOTALLY UNSATISFIED with the the Pittsburg bar clamps I bought. Wanna
know why? I bought 4 6" and 4 12" for $1.99 and $2.99 respectively. I'm
unsatisfied because I didn't buy 12 6" and 12 12" for the same money :)
They're everything a Bessey light duty is for 1/5th the price.
I don't see any harm in going to the store and looking around. I did
that when I was on vacation. You might end up spending more time in
the place than you planned. I took a car, and I probably would have
bought more if I had the room in my car.
Wait 3 months and they'll be on sale again.
Their quick-grip clones are on sale now, too. Get a few
for third-hand needs. I've found the cheapies to be larger
and bulkier than the equivalent from quality clamp mfgrs,
but WTF? They work fine and are 1/4 the cost. HF #46806, etc.
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering WTF happened.
