We came across a couple of more Amazon tool deals and received a sweet late-night tip.
The deals here aren’t very exciting, but hopefully they align with what some of you guys have been looking for. If not, stay tuned, tomorrow’s the big day!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Jet Parallel Clamps
I found a good deal on parallel clamps that I wanted to pass along. Parallel clamps don’t go on sale too often, usually just this time of year, so I always try to jump on the best deals I can find to add to my clamp collection.
Jet 70450 50″ 2 pack for $76.41 at Amazon. At Rockler 1 is on sale for $67.99. These are some high quality clamps at a great price. For comparison, a single Bessey Revo clamp is $51.99, and even the Bessey jr is $47.99.
Thank you to Rich for the tip!
Update: This Jet clamp deal looks to have sold out. Check back to see if more inventory becomes available. Acme also had a “buy one get one free” promo on select Jet clamps, but they appear to be sold as well. It might be worth checking back on that deal too: 12″ clamps, 24″clamps, 31″ clamps.
Knipex Diagonal Cutters
It seems that a lot of retailers are price-matching each other on this Knipex 70 01 160 diagonal cutters right now. A couple of retailers have it for ~$2 more.
I’d say this is more of a “gift guide” mention than a deal, really, but that’s okay – Knipex tools are great quality and always a solid recommendation.
Reminder: Did you Get a New Flashlight Yet?
If you buy nothing else, it’s just $5 for shipping.
Wera 20pc Phillips Screwdriver Bits with Box
Do you really need legendary Wera screwdriver quality in 1/4″ hex insert bits? Yes. This Phillips 20pc bit bulk pack is less than $10.
Shopping around, this isn’t the best deal, but it’s not a bad price either.
I bought a pack a while ago, and these are quite nice bits. But don’t use them in an impact-rated tool. I might be a bit biased in favor of this bit pack – I was wooed by the Bit Box, which is much nicer than other brands’ cheap bulk bit containers.
Kershaw Leek Knife – Made in USA
Ah, the Kershaw Leek, my old gateway knife.
This remains one of my most highly regarded folding knives, as it shows that you can get a great quality USA-made knife at a reasonable price point.
This is an assisted-opening knife with secondary blade safety lock. Some locales are less friendly to this type of pocket knife, so check your local laws and use your judgement. I used assisted openers around the workshop and love their ease of use.
Sale Price: $37.02
Streamlight LED Flashlights are on Sale
A selection of Streamlight flashlights is on sale, and with new “Black Friday Deal” labeling.
A couple of readers have commented very favorably for the Streamlight Stylus Pro USB-rechargeable penlight, and so I felt it deserved a quick mention. It’s on sale at the moment alongside the other Streamlight deals.
Dewalt Rotary Hammer Kit Special Buy
The Dewalt DCH133M2 20V max brushless D-handle rotary hammer kit sold out fast, but you can still order it on backorder. Amazon expects to have it back in stock on January 1st.
Seeing as how the bare tool sells for $199 to $219, $229 for the 2-battery kit does seem like a very good deal.
Dewalt Band Saw
I wouldn’t think that Dewalt’s corded deep-cutting band saw would be so popular, but there seems to be a lot of interest in it. It’s on sale right now for a hair under $200, and typically sells for a lot more.
Craftsman Ratcheting Screwdriver Set
While not really fancy enough for us tool snobs, this Craftsman 26pc ratcheting screwdriver set is on sale for just under $15. This looks to be a great gift item.
I would say that family and friends don’t give DIY-level tools to family and friends, but you’d be surprised as to how much people actually like them. My father still has great things to say about a less expensive screwdriver that I gave to him a couple of years ago for extended review.
Bonus: Milwaukee Screwdriver Deal at Home Depot
A couple of readers expressed frustration at not being able to buy this Milwaukee screwdriver 2-pack online. Right now, it looks to be shipping just fine!
The 2pc set comes with a 13-in-1 multi-bit screwdriver and an 11-in-1 multi-but screwdriver.
