Harbor Freight Wish List!

So I have a Harbor Freight store in my town. It's a ways away from me and I have so far avoided going there because well I know I will be hooked and want everything!

Some people here hipped me to something I should get so I can get my side covers off here-

Impact Screwdriver

I am going to get one and thought it might be cool to start a thread about cool things available at Harbor Freight. Please tell us what we would use the tool for as well if it's not automatically apparent!

I have a set of brand new Kenda tires in my garage waiting to be put on my bike when I reassemble. I've been watching videos on YouTube about how to change your own tires so this is actually what I am going to HF for- tire irons or "spoons".


It's a little pricey, but a could also get this balancer and really do that right-


And wouldn't a powdercoat gun be cool? I'm a bachelor, I can put motorcycle parts in my oven and no one will say anything!


These offset metric ratchets look like they could come in handy getting into tight places on the VN750-


Any other ideas or suggestions?

Hey if you're buyin', I'm flyin'!!

Don't know if it would make sense for me to buy stuff for folks and ship it to them versus just ordering it from HF direct, but if it can help I'll be glad to play the middle man!

This is what I got for changing tires.....


I got each one on sale for $39.99 plus I had a free shipping coupon. (bought them before there was a store near me)
I've used it on dirtbike tires, trailer tires and tires on my old GMC Jimmy, but not on the Vulcan yet. But I see no reason it shouldn't work just as easily as the dirtbike tires.

I'll probably buy one of their bike jacks eventually. No center stand on the 1500...

#1 choice. I have it, I use it a lot:
8 inch bench buffer. Save time and make that bike shine like a mirror. They're fun to have for other uses too like the wife's rings and plastic lenses (stop tail turn) makes them really glossy.

Blasting cabinet (with glass beads) if you have a 4+ HP compressor

4+ HP compressor for your blasting cabinet ;-)

240 volt line for your compressor

Spray gun - I like the smaller touch up gun

Motorcycle/ATV jack - love it

Small parts washer.

The R/C airplane is fun too
