As resident of the Land Down-Under I am somewhat bemused by these comments
concerning gear bought from Harbor Freight.  The complaints seem to centre on
shipping, back-orders and disappointment with the quality of the items.

Why not simply go into the store (or any other store) and buy the stuff?  That
way you see what you're getting.  Obviously there is a US Cultural thing about
buying mail (e-mail)
order.  The reasons for this escape me and perhaps some of our US members
could explain why this form of buying things is so popular there.
