Harbor Freight Tools is fast becoming my favorite place ;-) I was driving by the new store in Fayetteville today, had a little time...so stopped in to look. I originally went in to look at what their cost on winches were. I really wanted to do a taller tree than the two I had last year. However I didn't have a ladder tall enough to work on them. Found a great deal on a wench for $25.00. Ok on to look at some pond stuff for my wife. Right next to that area was a push up flag pole. Mmmmmm. 20ft at $59.95. Ok, putting all the pieces together for a heavy mega tree would run more than that. Might be a better deal. Other side of the display...a 16ft push up for $39.95. Even better! I really don't have the space for a 20ft, so this really might be better. Go around the corner to find the "Open Box" specials. Yeah! 16ft push up flag pole for $23.06. It is mine ;-) Yes. It is pretty thin. However if I guy it in 2 places (top and middle) put worm clamps where the twist clamps are...I think this might be pretty good! Now, if things would just quit tearing up around
Click on the September archive and then click on comments to see all of the 2009 display blogs. I am going to start blogging with a "Title" and also put the post into the blog so it can be archived by month. Should have done that to begin with. If you are new to this world of "Animated Displays", I suggest you not only read mine, but other blogs. They will help you learn NOT to make the same mistakes others have.
