Has anyone had experience with the Harbor Freight version of the 3rd Hand
Number 95746, and/or how it compares to the Fastcap original. I'm
interested in the HB one asit is so much less expensive and I will likely be
using it onlyoccasionally. For instance I'll want 4 of them to set up dust
containmentfor a living room remodling project. I'm interested in how well
they aremade and whether they hold up with very much use. A trip to a local
retail store wasn't helpful as they didn't have any in stock because
apparently they are pretty popular and sold out right away.

Imagine my surprise when it turned out that they were well worth the

I kinda wanted to lay my hands on one before buying but they are apparently
a new item for HF and as I said the supply apparently didn't last long.
When I visited the store yesterday the clerk said contractors grabbed them
up so I thought maybe they are worth the price at least. I've purchased HF
stuff in the past realizing the quality can leave something to be desired
but when I don't use some of these tools often I like the savings. So far
not much response on this item though. I hope to hear from people who have
used these or the Fastcap but if not may go ahead and take a chance and
