Homier Distributing Co. is selling this 20-ton import bottle jack for $20.  At $1 a ton, that’s a lot of lift for the money, although the fact that it’s a cheap import moderates our excitement a bit.  It is about half of Harbor Freight’s regular price though.

    Yeah, beware of the Homier Tools. I have been to a few of their traveling tent road shows, and have picked up a few things here or there. For the most part, everything I have bought lasted for one use, then turned to junk. I have family members who have had the same experience. Believe it or not, but take the stuff that Harbor Freight sells and cut the quality in half. I bought the stuff as a AWTH (Aw, What The Hell) purchase because it was cheap enough but…

    $5 3/8 drill? 3 holes, boom, done. $10 Forstner bit set? Not even sharp when you open the package. $39 pancake compressor. Poor materials in the regulator cracked and won’t hold air. $29 Small drill press? Chuck was so bad can’t drill round holes.

    Even at those prices, not even worth my time…Who knows how long that seal would last on that bottle jack. Last thing I’d want to have to do is rely on that to lift something heavy.

    Homier carries a 1 year warranty on this bottle jack and has proven to be a leader in the discount tool industry that’s why they’ve been around so long. Some items have their quality issues, but many many tools are great deals. Checkout homier hand tools, they even have a lifetime warranty. Homier wouldn’t be able to stay in business with that kind of warranty if they are as bad as you say they are. Homier stands behind their products. I’m sorry you had the problems you did with the items you did, but maybe you should have called homier customer service and gotten a replacement. I buy homier tools and I love them. I haven’t had a bad experience yet.

    My experience with Homier is that they are lesser quality than Harbor Freight, and that is pretty bad. I think they buy the tools that HF rejects. I didn’t bother pursuing their warranty. The tools cost so little, it wasn’t worth the effort to get a replacement, which would probably be just as crappy as the original tool. I just tossed them in the trash bin. I think Homier stays around because they pander to the cheapest buyers alive, who don’t know what quality tools are, or aren’t willing to pay for it.

    Regarding this bottle jack. If I need a 20-ton jack, it will be for lifting something fairly expensive, and there is no way I’d trust a Homier, or HF jack to do it. When I examine tools, one question I ask myself is, what happens if the tool fails at the worst possible moment? What will it cost me in wasted time, possible injuries, and repair costs?
