Here’s a quick knife and multi-tool holiday gift guide. All but one are personal favorites that are also at the top of Amazon’s knife and multitool bestseller charts, except for the Kershaw, which deserves to be there but isn’t.
Earlier this month we wrote about the new Ridgid JobMax starter kits on Home Depot’s website that feature the standard starter kit and a free attachment tool head of choice, but people had problems getting on the deal. It looks like Home Depot fixed things – the kits are no longer “out of stock” and […]

Looking for an oscillating multi-tool on a really tight budget? Maybe a reconditioned Dremel Multi-Max oscillating tool is a better choice than a no-name model.
Check out this Gerber Multi-Tool & Knife Gift Set Deal via Amazon. For more details,
We took a look through Sears’ Black Friday sales flyer ahead of time, and hand-picked a few of the best to share with you.
Amazon is offering a 2-piece Gerber mini-Suspension multitool combo set for $20, “while supplies last”. It looks like this may be a special holiday combo of slightly modified versions of Gerber’s Shortcut and Clutch pocket-friendly mini tools. If that’s true, then these should be decent performers for the money. I’ve owned a Shortcut for about five […]
Over at Amazon, this Dewalt 10″ compact jobsite table saw is on sale for $340. Most stores are selling it for $400, although shopping around I see that some other vendors have dropped it to $340-360. As far as I can tell, Amazon is the only one offering free shipping on the 45 lb saw (53 […]

You can install these on a DIY workbench, or any type of home furniture project. The laminated maple slabs […]
Lowes published an official Black Friday deals preview via their Facebook page last Friday evening. A few tool deals stood out among the rest, but nothing really surprised us. There isn’t much of an incentive to make Lowes one of your first shopping stops, but there are a few deals worth stopping in for when you have a […]

Over at Amazon, this 6-piece Wiha t-handle ball hex driver set is currently on sale for under $11. We ordered a set for outselves a few months ago at a similar price, and they’ve been performing reasonably well. We’re not sure if this is a real sale or another instance of Amazon’s random low-pricing teasing, but the price […]

To get free shipping, you need to pad the order a little with other items to bring the total over $25. These surface plates weigh […]
Amazon is doing their thing again, offering ridiculous prices on screws and other fasteners. This time they’re actually acknowledging it, telling people about their “bargain screws” with “up to 92%” savings. I’ve purchased fasteners from Amazon before and although it’s usually a good experience, finding the sizes you need can be challenging. Bargain Screws via […]
As part of Sears’ Labor Day sale, they’re offering some pretty decent discounts on tools. Gearwrench tools are on sale for 50% off. As we ranted about last time, they say “all” but really mean “some” Gearwrench tools are 50% off. All other tools are on sale as well! Some tools are 10% off, but I’ve […]
