    For what the reels and hose cost couldn't you just buy the reel and hose and take the hose it comes with off, replace it with your desired hose and give away/sell the new hose to someone that might want it?

    Well sure, or keep the hose as a backup, but, all I need is the reel? I'm not shopping at HF cuz I like spending money

    I'm just figuring that even with the hose the reel is more inexpensive there than anywhere else you could get it so you could think of the spare hose as a bonus for buying the reel.

    I do get what you are saying though.

    Likewise, I'd still be ahead of the game getting the reel/hose combo, and seeing as that's probably my only option that's likely where I'll end up.

    If you need stainless safety wire, most convenient place to buy is HF. Hard to find locally.

    The [Mercedes] Sprinter uses a bunch of Torx fasteners. Not only internal, but also external bolts and nuts. Stopped by a number of big boxes and large hardware stores. In the end only found two places that actually had them: Metric Screw & Tool in Wakefield, and any HF.

    We have a DeWalt [Simpson] pressure washer whose pump froze up. Had to get Boats in the water so we bought a $300 HF with a Chonda. Same nozzles, hose etc.

    It works 100% as well, and has lasted longer without repair. Wouldn’t buy the DeWalt again.

    I honestly can’t remember the last thing I bought from harbor freight that I regret buying or it didn’t meet my expectations.

    it's too thick. we typically use .020" or 0.032" wire. the HF stuff (at least in braintree) is thicker.

    Stores I shop usually have a selection of different gauges. I have .025 and .041 in my toolbox. Both sourced from hf.
