Harbor Freight Sale

For your situational awareness...Went to harbor freight to invest in a 19$ angle grinder and it was on sale for 10$! Anyway huge sale on sorts of stuff. My buddy just killed his $19 harbor freight angle grinder after 9 years of HARD use.

I had one from there that the switch went out on after many years. Had to throw it at the floor to turn it on or off. Did that for a while until I nutted up and bought a Dewalt. Pretty sure it still runs if you hit it hard enough...

That's funny that is exactly what happened to my buddy's ! He was telling me if he could fix the switch he probably could get another 10 years out of it!

Could do like I did with an old circular saw and wire in a wall light switch right into the power cord. Yeah, that was safe.
