This is not a tool gloat; just the opposite in fact.
Anyhow, Homier brought their rolling road show to my town today. Of course I was there shortly after opening.
Eagerly, unknowing was I, as I entered the sanctum, and shopping basket in hand began a cruise of the rows of tools in search of those "Have to Haves" I've somehow managed to live without. Man o Man, did my crest come rapidly crashing down. WHAT CRAP!!! IMHO, Their stuff made a Harbor Freight Store look look like a Snap-On warehouse!!!
I looked at a set of flat spade bits. They where TIN plated (or at least had a gold colored coating) but looked like they had been sharpened after stamping, on an old section of concrete sidewalk. Likewise wrenchs looked like the stuff in the 50cent throw away bin at the local hardware store.
They had some sort of small reciprocating saw (all plastic) with a sticky jambing switch and a set of nblades that by and large looked gnawed out rather than stamped or ground.
What was really amazing was the way the locals were scoffing the stuff up - the line to check out was around the building. I was gone within a half hour.
Jacksonville NC isn't the heart of tool country but this was sad, and that was my first and last Homier truckload sale.
