Parade Magazine is a Sunday supplement to many newspapers across the nation.
I almost never look at it because it has articles like "What every woman was
wearing at the Cat Show," but for some reason I happened to glance through
The magazine contained an ad for Harbor Freight, with 14 coupons.
None of the coupons interested me (rechargeable plumb-bob, push-button light
switches, assorted reverse-thread nuts and bolts, etc.).
The ad DID have your standard 20% off coupon, but this is no big deal
inasmuch as we all now know where to get one on the web
What the ad did have, however, is a coupon for a FREE FLASHLIGHT! Yippee!
Don't throw out the Sunday paper.
And the freebee requires a minimum purchase - least in AZ.
It is a nice little flashlight (9-led 1-AA) and I have them in the
cars/trucks and the house. Being old and half blind, the do come in
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure,the creed of ignorance, and the
gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery"
They were out right free in Houston, TX. My 90 year old father saw the
ad and just had to have the FREE, "this time it was the flash light",
item. We drove 16 miles one way and got nothing else. Oh, and burned
at least $8 worth of gas.
Yea, but you made him happy.
You should check out the clamps, there is a geared clamp like the bessey
kliklamp. I went and bought one to try out.. it was $19... at least I
thought it was. Turns out it was $10 and with the 20% coupon wound up
being $8. I had my wife in the car with my dog and had her run in for
one... w/coupon. Should have bought more.
They are really good. I had to run the sander on the rubber pad to
remove the knobby pads... It depressed in pine.. took them off then the
damng thing is perfect. No marring softwood, but a hell of a lot of
pressure. That makes LV and HF both having the kliklamp knock offs. They
are both different, the LV is light duty, the HF is heavier duty with
more pressure. Nice mechanism too.
I used them tonight.. (both) very happy with both. They are nice
additions and I'll be adding more of both...plus a kliklamp or 2 also.
Anything is possible? :-)
However, with one button to push, it is highly unlikely.
Add to the equation my experience that any "rubber covered push-switch"
in the Harbor Freight arsenal suffers the same design/quality flaw, and
logic leads me to believe the hoof thunder I hear is horses, not unicorns.
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
I agree. I sawed off the business end of three of them and am fashioning the
results - along with a 4.5vdc wall-wart - into an under-counter light for
I've just got to install an outlet connected to the overhead lighting and
I'm all set.
(I salvaged the supplied batteries. That's a $2.00 saving right there...)
