    Default Anyone need a Harbor Freight coupon?



    If anyone wants to visit Harbor Freight tomorrow and pick up an eyepiece case or perhaps the Gordon 10x50 binoculars, here is the link to a 25% coupon you can use on one item only. Or you could print two, go in and buy one thing, leave, then put it in the car and go back in a few minutes later and buy the other! Of course one can take a partner in crime along and let them buy the second item. Only good on Jan 1st.

    10 x 50 Wide Angle Binoculars

    I was wondering where people get their foam for their EP cases from HF

    Phil, the case I linked comes with pluck foam. However, I do recommend you look the cases over closely. They will not all have everything in them they are supposed to as this stuff gets picked over a lot in HF. So I find the case I like the best and if I have to swap foam inserts around between them I will do so to get what I want to walk out of the store with.

    I have one of the HF Pluck Foam aluminum cases and am using it for my eyepieces. It's great. Way cheaper than the Orion and I suspect about the same build quality (maybe Orion uses better foam). I managed to get my full Orion Q70 set, Celestron cheapy 1.25" 6 piece set, Orion RACI finder, Rigel QuickFinder, and room for filters in the case, all with sufficient foam around everything. Just take your time planning out where to put the pieces before ripping out the foam.

    Sorry for the thread hijack, hope others use that coupon and get that case!

    Ah now I see how I messed up. I purchased one that had dividers but no foam in it at all. I did not even think to look for it.

    Yeah, unfortunately, I have had to go through quite a few of them at the store to get exactly the best package. Some had the foam missing totally or partially and/or some were sorta beat to crap. So I opened as many as it took to get the best case and foam mix and match I could. As hawk said, it may be Orion uses better foam, but since I have an HF store locally, its much easier as well as cheaper. Buying replacement foam is typically not cheap. I have sometimes wondered if some of those cases at HF have been pilfered for replacement foam for that very reason.

    Hi Alan. Thanks for the heads up on this coupon. I'll have to run over to the Merritt Island store today for one of those cases. And, lots of AA batteries too. Thanks again Alan, best of wishes for a Very Happy New Year.
