Within a couple months of use on my brand new super smooth barn/garage floor, the ball bearing started to fall out of the caster mechanisms.

So I replaced them with different HF casters [the blue ones with 4 bolt holes to hold them on], and then it was fine for a while.

But then that tiny little seat started to be a PITA, so I swapped it for a different seat off of a rolly chair I trash heaped- working great again, but now the new casters aren't swiveling smoothly again, and with the wider seat, it's a bit tippy so now I'm thinking about using bigger casters on some 2x4's or other outrigger legs in a cross pattern to get a bit wider foot print.

Throughout all of this, the pneumatic lifter and basic mechaisms have been great.

Less than a dollar! I've got a number of these in the house, kitchen, shop, even the van. They cut well, they are really very sharp and hold that edge. Better than scissors I've paid many times as much for. After years of use the handles on a couple broke, a dab of superglue and they are still going strong.

The handles broke using them as tin snips on lightweight aluminum. They worked well right up until the handle cracked. Honestly, this wasn't unexpected. My success with sharpening scissors over the years has been mixed. These are cheap enough that I'm not even going to try. But, in probably 10 years of use (spread over a half dozen pairs of these) not has dulled to the point of no return.

My next trip past the Harbor Freight Store and I'll pick up a few more pairs, just in case.

Not perfect, but it sure beats notching by eye in any quantity. Some tweaking (shimming,etc.) necessary and it way works best in a drill press. Very accurate cuts are possible, along with being able to make an accurate partial cut (at the end of the tube). Not one of the the necessities in life, but when purchased was money well spent. It has held up well over the years, I keep the shaft oiled and cutting oil helps out a lot.

Compared to other equivalent (identical?) tubing notchers available, this is still a pretty good deal by itself. With a coupon, unbeatable.
