It seems like everything I have bought lately makes me cringe. After I wired my workshop I had to run a guard strip of lumber in front of the Romex so that stuff couldn't lean against it (walls aren't finished). I thought I would just go get a sheet of 7/16" OSB and rip it into 4" widths, until I got to the hardware store, $36 dollars a sheet, was $16 a sheet two years ago. They had some rough cut 1"x4"x8' lumber that was cut from salvaged trees from the fires last summer for $3 each, so I went with them. The OSB is down to $15 dollars a sheet now, so hopefully other things will come down, also. They said the lumber prices were up because of all the people staying home working on DIY and honey-do projects (my opinion- BS, too many people not working to have been buying building materials).
Harbor Freight prices have jumped higher than adding the tariff, to try to hide it they've been renaming tools. I've been looking at a new wire feed welder, my 30-year old one has been giving me trouble and parts are not available, Eastwood has better welders at a lower price than HF. I got higher lumen LED shop lights from Lowes that were considerably lower priced than HF, and they are much brighter than fluorescent would have been, just needed half as many as I would have with the fluorescent lights.
