  • What's the smelliest thing at Harbor Freight?

    Thinking about that pungent rubbery smell of many items at Harbor Freight. What item do you think smells the strongest?
    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

      Rubber wheel blocks. Automotive stuff in general.

        The quality of most of what Harbor Freight sells stinks rather badly.

          I only buy hand tools there. Anything that has an electrical motor or requires batteries pretty much stinks.
          Some people are addicted to Vicodin. I'm addicted to speaker building.

            Thanks JRT! Been lurking a lot because of work. I run a surgery center with 44 employees which was hit hard by the pandemic, so I stuck around to make sure the business comes back and they all have jobs. We're almost there...

            Doing good Ben! Been a busy year but I'm surviving. You're still such a speaker guru. Sorry we hijacked your thread Paul!

              If a thread is going to be hijacked, might as well hijack a thread about the worst malodorous stench encountered at Harbor Freight.

            Haven't seen Pete Schumacher here in over one year. Is he okay, anybody heard from him?

              It was late last year I heard from him last personally. We discussed some music selections as we tend to do.
              Just to find out, I pinged him over e-mail so he's aware some are asking about him.

              Later,

                Pete's reply:
                Thanks for asking. Let the gang know I'm doing fine. Many may not recognize me. I've dropped a few pounds. Job is keeping me very busy too. Just busy restarting life and finding my place. Newly married too!
