yeah, no ... i was thinking about investing on that foot operated one for less than $300. It will help get my off the floor when working on the bikes and doing oil changes and stuff.

That store also has a -load of tools, tool boxes & drawers, rolling chairs, ... all kinds of stuff for dirt cheap. most of the stuff if off-brand stuff, but thats fine for some stuff. just dont buy their cordless drills and stuff.

I've been to them in other states when I needed some 'cheap' tools. Haven't been to one here though.

I bought an electric 1/2" drive impact wrench that gets small jobs done for me from there. Bought it like 10 years ago when I didn't have access to a compressor, it's still going strong.

I try to stay out of places like that though cause I'll always find something to waste money on.
