I used it to mill 2"x12" floor joists with and Echo CS310 Chainsaw. It was pushing the limits of the 16" blades capabilities, but with careful set-up it worked very well. Instead of a 2x4 I used a 3" wide Aluminum Stanley level that was 8 foot long. The most important thing was prepping your fence, and making sure you drew it straight through the log without tilting to the inside or outside, otherwise you won't get consistent width boards. I ended up with nice rough cut lumber using a ripping chain cut at a 10% angle instead of 37% like a standard crosscut chain. I didn't have to recut the timber or reface it.

Works ok and is accurate to within.3 degree. Checked Against my craftsman it reads the same, however the craftsman is much quicker to respond. Slow to zero, makes you think it is not responding to the cal button. Instructions don't say to hold on/off button for 3 seconds to shut off. There is no backlight, just standard LCD that would be better with a backlight. Takes 3 cr2032 batteries. He Igaging cube is much better for the same or less $.

This was a great find and now it is discontinued. Damn! Wish Harbor Freight would bring back Collapsible Waterproof Bucket-97697. My friends and I belong to a hunting Club and have found numerous uses for the little collapsible blue bucket which fits in a pouch that utilizes a drawstring.

I bought the latest model of this (part 60380) for $101 and kept it a couple of weeks. I took it back, went to Lowes and bought a Kobalt Lithium Ion 20V cordless impact for $280. The extra money was worth it to me, for my needs and because I could afford it. Saying that, however, this wrench did work adequately. There isn't anything "wrong" with it. For the money, it is definitely a bargain if you need something to keep in the car or around the house to take off lug nuts or lawnmower blades. I just wanted something more powerful, which the Kobalt definitely is. The Kobalt delivers every bit of its rated 350 foot pounds of torque. I doubt this harbor freight wrench delivers anywhere near its rated 330 foot pounds. However, it does work for common automotive (lug nuts) and around the house tasks. I drove a five inch long, 5/8 hex lag screw into a landscape timber with it. Struggled a bit, but it did it. Don't know if it would do 10 straight, but it did one. On my car it eventually got a rusted sway bar link nut off, but at a salvage yard, the Kobalt blew a rusted shock nut off in a split second off a 20 year old junk car. If you want or need that kind of power, the Harbor Freight isn't for you. I would recommend this to someone if they know and are ok with its limited capabilities, but it didn't suit me specifically.
