  3. Harbor Freight is recalling over 1.7 million Pittsburgh-branded jack stands that can suddenly collapse due to a manufacturing flaw. It warned its customers that they need to stop using the defective stands immediately. The recall campaign includes three- and six-ton stands wearing item numbers 56371, 61196 or 61197. The number is found on the label that's normally affixed to the top or the base of the stand depending on the model; it should be clearly legible. Harbor Freight told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) it realized the tooling used to make the stands near Hangzhou, China, had become worn out due to age and was manufacturing inconsistent parts. As a result, the ratchet teeth might not be deep enough to hold the lifting extension in place if a shift in weight occurs, like when you're banging on a rusty brake drum with a mallet, and the stand could collapse without warning. That's bad news if you're under it, working on a 4,700-pound SUV. https://www.autoblog.com/2020/05/20/harbor-freight-jack-stands-recall/

  15. hmm. This will likely open a whole new stream for downloading/viewing the content. :D
  16. How early can or does everyone want to head out on the trip? I've been considering taking all of Friday off so we can head out earlier. Right now I'm planning on taking a half day off but, if you all want to leave earlier I'll take the whole day and we can head out in the morning.
