Maybe I should have posted on jokes and stories.

Are those Chinese nail unbenders any good, or should I pay $1,500 for the US Made one????

Dealing with HF can indeed be confusing . If you order over the phone, you'll usually get yet another price . If you try to get the lowest price, the item will be " out of stock" , or backordered . Although HF uses sneaky but obvious marketing ploys, Sears isn't much better. They're just more sophisticated in their marketing ploys. I often wonder if a company who was completely honest about their products and prices might do better in the long run, based on trust rather than sneaky marketing.

I did always wonder about there "sale" pricing and difference in the pricing and coupons.

That's almost as bad as the set of end mills I bought from HF....They were actually tin plated, and didn't cut worth beans. A closer look revealed that the whole set was ground to cut counter clockwise, with the flutes for clockwise motion.

Just when you thought it was safe to stop hating the chinese; i bought a tap and die set that looked like it was produced by a drunk amateur machinist. The taps were unhardened and the small ones could be bent by hand. Some chinks like to tell you they're for tapping plastic, but that's impossible with the sharp and coarse edges. Taps for plastic are one continuous spiral. 20$ down the drain, I threw the entire 100 piece set in the garbage and ran off to buy a few HSS taps from the local hardware store with the change in my pocket.

Er, I'm all for hating on HF and Made in China stuff. But do we need to get racial slurs in there?

No good deed goes unpunished.

You have the quote wrong. That should be "No good deed ever goes unpunished."
