Whoa. Amazon kicked off a ton of early Black Friday tool deals, some of which might rival good deals that retail stores will be offering. I already talked about some of the best ones in individual posts, here’s a look at the rest.
Forgive me for being so blunt, but these deals are better than I had expected. Some are even really good deals.
Since it’s so late, I’m going to be short with words, and I hope you can understand. Besides, most of the deals speak for themselves.
Here’s a short list of the other deals that went live today:
- Dewalt 12″ Miter Saw w/ LED Shadow Lighting
- Dewalt Table Saw and Stand Combo Deal
- Deal of the Day on Dewalt Tools
- WorkShop Wet/Dry Vacuum
- Makita Price Drops
These are good general purpose drill bits, and the price looks good. I’ll probably order a set myself, as a “refill” set to my larger 60pc set.
While not the biggest deal, new DIYers or homeowners might appreciate the versatility the 7 pliers and 1 adjustable wrench offers.
You’re not going to get a lot of features in this 1500W heat gun, but it’s a $30 tool on sale for $20. It should be good for general tasks, and seems to have a lot of very positive reviews. If you need a no-frills heat gun, go for it.
This is a very good price on well-equipped Dremel 4000-series rotary tool set.
This is a good deal on an even better equipped 4000-series Dremel rotary tool set. You get more attachments, more accessories, and perhaps most notably, a flex-shaft.
A mini multi-tool and small knife, for $20. I used to have one of these knives, and it served me well. Then I tried the larger version, and didn’t like it.
This Dewalt 100pc screwdriver and drill bit set gives you a decent sampling of Dewalt accessories, with the focus on 1″ insert bits. It’s not a very exciting set, but it looks like you get your money’s worth.
The Dremel Ultra-Saw cuts all kinds of materials. It’s a good DIYer or hobbyist tool, and the price seems reasonable.
I haven’t used or tested a Dremel Multi-Max oscillating multi-tool in quite some time. But when I did, they worked well, giving me no reason to complain. This kit gives you the MM-40 tool, 6 blades, a sanding pad, and lots of abrasives to make up the rest of the 36-count accessory bundle.
This wouldn’t be my oscillating tool of choice, but the deal looks good.
Buy Dewalt’s excellent hybrid corded/cordless HEPA-rated vac and a 4.0Ah battery pack with a ~$63 discount. Sounds good to me.
If you don’t need the battery, Home Depot has a better price on the vac by itself.

Here’s a strange pairing – Dewalt’s holiday season brushed drill kit, and a premium circular saw. I don’t know how I feel about this.
This kit’s a little different. You get a cordless drill and impact driver kit, with the holiday season drill, a good impact, compact battery packs, and the regular 20V Max angle grinder.
And in this kit, you get the same drill and impact driver kit, plus a premium reciprocating saw. I’d be more excited about these deals if the drill were Dewalt’s latest DCD777 brushless drill. The DCD777 is a holiday season model too, but it’s better than the one in this kit in every single way.
Wow. This is a very good deal. You get Makita’s latest 18V X2 rear-handle circular saw kit, plus (2) FREE 5.0Ah batteries.
These battery packs sell in 2-packs for $159. I went through the whole spiel in another recent Makita deal post. Bottom-line, you get a lot for your money here.
If you’ve been eyeing the new Makita framing saw, and can benefit from powering it with some fresh new battery packs, this is going to be the best deal out there.
There’s also a great deal on this bundle, which features a brushless hammer drill, brushless 3-speed impact driver, circular saw, and 6.0Ah battery pack.
Amazon says you save $188.23 off the price of the combo. I haven’t done the math, but I can tell you that this is a lot for $400.
There are quite a few other Makita bundles. And as I previously posted, Amazon dropped certain kits to Black Friday pricing.

I bought this Jet air cleaner last year for around the same price. It was a good deal then, and a good deal now.
Update: The price dropped to $278 – a fantastic deal!
This 3M Worktunes wireless hearing protector features Bluetooth connectivity, as well as an AM/FM digital radio. I don’t know if this is a good deal, a great one, or just so-so, but it certainly seems like a good gift idea.
Let’s hope that Amazon keeps it up with the good tool deals! Here are a few more:
