I decided I needed a set of wrenches to adjust/set-up my bench tools, so I
set from Harbor Freight. Made in India. "chrome vanadium". They finally
SOP) and they look good, but I found that on one the "chrome" was flaking off.
this simply a sign of bad manufacturing? I don't know ... is chrome just
if it is applied badly, it flakes off? Or, does this mean, somehow, that
"chrome vanadium" is, the term is wrongly applied to these wrenches?
Of course, this may be just another HF story. Any comments? Thanks.
BTW, I added things up and realized that >10% of the stuff shows up DOA in one
another. I ordered some of their pistol grip clamps. Two different versions of
18" clamps showed up, one with a broken grip. On the 12" clamps, two of the same
version but one had a broken grip. It's starying to be like a pot-luck trunk
but with return privileges.
