    More Harbor Freight tools I need?

    Tomorrow are quilt group is going on an outing and we are going to stop at HF. I have some tools from there that have been recommended on this board that I can't live without...LOL...but I know there are more that I've read about but have not made note of. Attached is a pic of the ones I love...my FAVORITE is the screwdriver that makes life easier on the sewing machine. I also have their rotary blades and have some that are great and then some that will do in a pinch.

    Can anyone clue me in on some that I should buy tomorrow? Thanks, PatName:  IMG_20130113_090054.jpg

    I can't remember right now all the things I've bought from them!
    I go and browse; thinking outside the box.
    They do have tool boxes (great for "sewing case"), great T-rulers (for squaring), scissors (for cutting things other than fabric), etc.
    Look for anything that strikes your imagination.

    Someone posted about the suction cup handles that are made for moving glass are good for rotary rulers and really good for the thick long arm quilting rulers.

    Thanks...the T-rulers are one of the things I read about and forgot to look for.

    14" scissors, $3.99, great for batting.

    It's a telescoping wand with a magnet on the end.

    HF has 2 little stubby screwdrivers, one flathead, one Phillips head, that I find invaluable when working on my machine. The handles are large and easy to grab.

    Great place to shop for quilters! Didn't know about those scissors. Thanks.
