After one week of ownership, the gloves have torn from the cabinet and are now useless. In addition,
still trying to overcome the air bound issue. Have had some luck, but not 100 percent reliable. Kinda
disappointed.

Have you looked at any of the Youtube videos yet that show modifications that will make these cabinets work better? I posted this already in your other thread last week.

From time to time I get a lemon there too. They will take it back with no question.

I had the bench top model and used it for years. I'm sure you can get a replacement if it is still under warranty.

A Harbor Freight tool failing catastrophically after one week? I've never heard of such a thing! This is certainly a black mark against HF's sterling reputation for quality.

I took it back and the girl said yeah I don't know why those don't last very long! Do you want another one or a refund? I had that really you asked that after your statement look on my face!

I appreciate the sarcasm. I learned to avoid Harbor Freight several years ago. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Take it back.

At my local HF, The head is back by the defectives area. They've always got half a dozen blast returned cabinets stacked up there, I've seen them also right in front of the compactor.....

Here's my theory on HF tools, and I've gotten good stuff and not so good stuff from them.

I'm in the process of building a new deck on the front of our house. For a more professional looking job, my plans involve beveling the ends of some 10' and 18' 2x8s, beveling the ends of the railing posts, cutting 4x4s to length, and the usual cutting. So I spent $159 for HF's 12" sliding miter saw. I figure it's more efficient and simpler to have the saw at hand instead of having to haul the lumber somewhere to have it sawed. Possibly cheaper, too.

So far the saw has done exactly what I wanted it to do, including beveling the ends of 18' 2x8s.

When this project is done, will I ever use the saw again? Beats me. I have no projects on the horizon that would require it. Even if I never use it again, it will still bring some money back someday when someone auctions the equipment out of my shop.

That being said, I don't begrudge or belittle someone who needs to use a saw like that on a daily basis from spending several times the money for a high dollar, brand name saw.

Just my theory, as I said above.

That’s easy to answer. All tools are quality. The word “quality” needs a modifier such as poor, fair, good, or excellent in order to identify the level of quality. The shirts may mislead, but they don’t lie.
