I recently posted about a new Klein Tools set at Home Depot, one which I thought was a great deal. But it wasn’t the same as last year’s Klein electrician’s tool and test bundle that a lot of few readers said they regret missing out on.
Well, good news – there’s a similar 7-piece combo that just became available online and presumably in stores as well.
This set is a little different from last year’s, featuring most of the same tools except for electrician’s scissors and a stubby multi-bit screwdriver in place of diagonal cutters.
This seems like a great set for homeowners or apprentices whose only electrical tool might be a combination tool.
What You Get
- High Leverage Side Cutting Pliers D2139NE: ~$27.40
- Wire Strippers 11045: ~$15 | ~$11.34 via HD
- Cabinet-Tip Screwdriver 605-4: ~$8.50
- Phillips Screwdriver 603-4: ~$8.37
- Electrician’s Scissors 21007: ~$16
- Stubby Multi-Bit Screwdriver 32561: ~$10.56
- Non-Contact Voltage Tester NCVT1: ~$15
All of these tools, except for the wire strippers, are less expensive on Amazon than at HD or elsewhere that I could find.
So, given those prices, but with the lower HD price on the strippers, that gives this bundle a retail value of ~$97 if you were to buy each tool separately.
$97 in tools for just $50? Not bad!
I already have a number of these tools, but there are a few I could use, such as an extra voltage tester, the stubby multi-bit driver, the electrician’s scissors, and I could probably use an extra pair of lineman’s pliers.
Come to think of it, I could always use more Phillips screwdrivers, and I don’t think I have a good cabinet tip slotted screwdriver.
I’m ordering some other tools from Home Depot’s Pro Black Friday sale, and will be tacking on at least one of these sets. It’s just too good of a deal to pass up!
