Abstract: For each $2 \leq n \leq \infty$, we construct an uncountable family of free ergodic measure preserving actions $\alpha _t$ of the free group $\mathbb {F}_n$ on the standard probability space $(X, \mu )$ such that any two are nonorbit equivalent (in fact, not even stably orbit equivalent). These actions are all “rigid” (in the sense of Popa), with the II$_1$ factors $L^\infty (X, \mu )\rtimes _{\alpha _t} \mathbb {F}_n$ mutually nonisomorphic (even nonstably isomorphic) and in the class $\mathcal {H}\mathcal {T}_{_{s}}.$
