Seriously, I've bought hex keys and such at HFT, but never anything more sophisticated than that. It would be like buying a household appliance at an Ollie's Bargain Store. Can you say "refurbished?"

Quote:I have the Pelican Storm 2200, and the Pentax 5 and 3.5 were just too tall for the case. It would close, but that put too much downward pressure on them, so I got some new foam ($25 for 2 pieces Pelican branded pluckfoam) and the 3.5, 5, and 7mm are all now nicely laying down for a nap. The others were fine standing up. Just enough room in the case for the 30 - 3.5 XWs with enough room left over for the antique Kellner.
Quote:I've actually used the HF reciprocating saw quite a bit. Works great trimming tree limbs. Yea, it was cheap, but it works.....

Quote:I just ordered foam for my new HF case.http://www.foambymail.com/charcoal-pick-and-pluck-foam.htmlThe foam that comes in the HF case is cheap and not thick enough. I'm replacing it with 2 layers of 1-1/2" P&P foam with a 1/2" solid bottom layer.

I'm replacing it with 2 layers of 1-1/2" P&P foam with a 1/2" solid bottom layer. The foam arrived today and it is not the same quality as Pelican p&p foam. It is about the same as the HF foam it's replacing. Next time I will look for something better.
