Over at Home Depot, it seems that they kicked off their PRO Black Friday 2020 tool deals! Here, we’ll tell you all about them.
I should clarify – it seems that they kicked off their unofficial PRO Black Friday tool deals. There will NOT be an official Pro Black Friday sales event this year, I’m told, because Home Depot has extended their Black Friday sales event month-long due to COVID.
There will be some additional promos throughout the month until Black Friday, and it looks like the usual PRO Black Friday tool deals are being included there.
I scouted out the Home Depot stores near me, to see what new I could find that’s not included in their Black Friday 2020 sales flyer or online advertisements. One of the stores I checked had a string of displays up, but the two others didn’t have anything in the main raceway. If you know of any other deals, please let us know!
We’ll be continuing with our Black Friday and Holiday tool deals coverage – subscribe to our newsletter to receive alerts via email.
Promo and deal pricing end dates are uncertain.

Milwaukee PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
This Milwaukee 9pc Hole Dozer hole saw set dropped from $40 to $30.
But consider buying this 13pc set, it’s only $40. It’s $10 more, but you get 9 hole saw sizes and a second larger arbor size, vs 5 hole saws for the $30 set.
Hot Deal: Milwaukee Packout Organizer with Hole Saw and Sawzall Blade Set (2020)
This is a photo of last year’s display, but I found a bunch of the same Milwaukee socket set and Packout tool box bundles in an end cap promo spot. Either they’re waiting for the display to be set up, or they’re what’s left.
There are fewer spots for floor displays due to stores wanting to keep the front raceway clear for social distancing.
It’s $99, the same as last year. If you’re on the fence, there was an online-only socket set and screwdriver set bundle deal last year – a mid-December deal of the day.
I posted about this Milwaukee Shockwave bit set deal already, but it’s still a phenomenal value that I felt compelled to mention once more.
It’s a 70pc bit set for $10 AND free shipping with no minimum. Last year, there was a 45pc set for $15. This 70pc set is stilled marked at $20 in stores, and so I ordered mine online.
Price: $9.88 w/ free shipping
Yesterday I posted about a Dewalt 14pc drill bit that’s on sale for $10, and that’s still a really good deal. But if you want something impact-rated, this Milwaukee 15pc set is a good buy at $15.
The Milwaukee Packout 11 compartment organizer is on sale for $35, down from $45.
I know that a lot of people were disappointed that Home Depot’s Black Friday Packout deal is for a rolling tool box, tool box, and tote box for $179, rather than this 3pc combo with small tool box on top instead.
But, they also do have this typical 3pc combo at $199, and with free shipping, which is different from past years where you could only snag the deal in-store.

Home Depot also has a Milwaukee M18 oscillating multi-tool kit for $99. No, it’s not brushless, but it’s still a great value at less than the price of the bare tool by itself.
And if you’ll need accessories, there’s a 20pc accessory kit with zippered pouch for $30.
RED HOT DEAL: Milwaukee 20pc Oscillating Multi-Tool Accessory Set!
Here are some more great Milwaukee cordless power tool and accessory deals – part of their advertised Black Friday promo, but worthy of a reminder:
M12 Fuel Hammer Drill Kit: $99
M12 Fuel Impact Driver Kit: $99
M12 3Ah Battery 2-Pack: $79
M12 Fuel Hackzall Reciprocating Saw Kit: $149
M12 Fuel Installation Drill/Driver Kit: $179
M12 Fuel Drill and Impact Driver Kit: $199
Shockwave 23pc Drill Bit Set: $25
Dewalt PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
The Dewalt DWS779 is usually a very HOT seller each year – it’s a 12″ sliding miter saw that lacks the LED shadow lighting of Dewalt’s flagship DWS780 model that retails for $600.

Home Depot has a new Dewalt air compressor deal, featuring this 6-gallon 165PSI compressor and a Precision Point brad nailer.
The compressor is said to be quiet, rated at 75.5 dBA, but what stands out to be is the new pressure gauge and regular control panel. This looks to have a similar one-touch regular as the Dewalt FlexVolt air compressor. Interesting.
With this deal, you get a Dewalt 35pc MaxFit screwdriver bit set and right angle attachment, and for less money than the RA adapter is selling for by itself at the moment.
This one seems to be selling fast – you might want to try ordering it for in-store pickup.
HOT Deal on a Dewalt Impact-Rated Right Angle Drill/Driver Attachment
I also bought this Dewalt 30pc MaxFit screwdriver bit set, for $10. Why? It’s a good mix of 2″ power bits and I wanted to try the bit holder. Plus it has some nice organizer inserts that I’ll pop into a different Dewalt ToughCase.
2″ MaxFit power bits sell for what, $3 for a 2-pack? Milwaukee Shockwave bits are $6 for 5 or $10 for 15, depending on size.
This isn’t a huge assortment of screwdriver bits, but it’s nonetheless a great value, and you get a Dewalt bit case with the new style bit slots that everyone is talking about being easier to use. (I haven’t tried it yet, but will soon.)
This Dewalt 25′ tape measure 2-pack is $15 again. I think Milwaukee’s 2-pack for $10 deal is better, but these Dewalt tapes are okay too. I’ve bought them in the past.
If you already bought into Dewalt’s 20V Max cordless power tool system, or you plan to, they have this brushless 12″ chains aw bare tool priced at $99.

This Dewalt DWST14825 organizer tool box is stocked in-stores in crazy numbers, and it’s selling fast. During every visit to my local Home Depot stores over the past week or so, I see a couple of people walking around the store with a couple of organizers under their arms or in their carts. I ordered 4 for my own use as well.
Home Depot enabled shipping a couple of times, but most of the time the most you can do is order online for in-store pickup, or head to your store and find the tower of boxes near the holiday gift center.
They’re well-made for the price, and connect together for easy portability.
Looking at online inventory reporting for the 10 closest stores near me, I see that they have 388, 58, 351, 12, 23, 92, 128, 187, 10, and 36 organizers in stock.
These aren’t the best organizers out there, but they seem to be very good for $10.
The Dewalt DWF83PL 21° collated framing nailer is on sale for $169.
This seems to be a new deal for 2020 – if I recall correctly, only a Ridgid framing nailer was featured in previous years’ deals.
Other sellers have this framing nailer for $199 to $249 and up, and so this seems to be a pretty good deal.
I don’t know what’s going on with this Dewalt 160pc MaxFit impact screwdriver and drill bit set.
I found it in stock at two stores, but now the website says it’s not available anywhere within 100 miles of me. I think it’s a decent deal, bought two for my own use. Maybe it’ll be a surprise deal later in the month?

Ridgid PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
This Ridgid 6 gallon air compressor deal is back again. It seems to be a good deal, and Home Depot’s user reviews seem to be quite positive.
Can’t find it in store? Order online with free shipping!
It seems that Home Depot and Ridgid couldn’t decide on whether the air nailer bundle should be for a finish nailer and brand nailer, or a finish nailer and pinner bundle. So, you have a choice this year.

I’ve been meaning to post about this Ridgid R9257SB 18V 7-tool cordless power tool combo kit, and hope to get to the standalone post soon.
Here, you get a 7-tool tool kit, 3 batteries, and a Ridgid Pro rolling tool box.
You get a drill, impact driver, reciprocating saw, sander, flashlight, Bluetooth radio, vacuum, 3x 2.0Ah batteries, charger, and the tool box.
This seems like a lot for the money. It’s new this year, so there are no user reviews up yet, but I’ll include the model numbers below in case you want to do some research.
If you’re shopping for a cordless power tool combo kit, here are two more deals you might want to look at:
Home Depot vs. Lowe’s Black Friday 2020: Dewalt 6pc Cordless Power Tool Combo Kit Deals Compared
Deal Analysis: Lowe’s Dewalt 20V Max XR 6pc Cordless Power Tool Combo Kit (DCKSS699M2)
There is a new Ridgid 15A 12″ dual bevel sliding miter saw for $349, and it also features an LED cut line indicator.
This is the R4222. The R4221 was a Black Friday deal for $299 in 2018. I couldn’t tell you what the differences are, but there do look to be some differences.
There were only a couple at one of my stores, and none at the others that I could see. At the time of this posting, Home Depot is offering free home shipping, which could save you from making a trip to the store for something that might not be on the sales floor yet.
This saw is not advertised in Home Depot’s Black Friday 2020 tool deals.
This Ridgid 6.5A 7″ wet table top tile saw is on sale again for $99.
This deal is usually a Home Depot PRO Black Friday fixture, and when it’s not, they have one with a folding stand.
Some users like it, others seem to regret not buying a bigger and pricier saw. Check the user reviews before you buy one.
Bosch PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
The Bosch GLM165-10 laser distance measuring tool is on sale for $39, and as mentioned in our standalone post, I think it’s a fantastic deal.

They also have this 30′ cross-line laser level for $40.
Klein PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
If you swing by the electrical tool department, there’s a new Klein Tools display. One of my stores had this display near the electrical tools, the other had it in the wider aisle where they keep their recessed lights and bulbs.
There’s a 3pc electrical test kit, priced at $25, and a 3pc multi-bit screwdriver set, priced at $30. Both are described as Home Depot exclusives.
Price: $25 for the test kit, $30 for the tool set

Note: The website is showing a higher price for the test kit at the time of this posting.
Makita PRO Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals
I didn’t see it in stores, but Home Depot has this E-00038 100pc impact screwdriver bit set priced at $20.
This was a PRO Black Friday deal last year, and so maybe my local stores just didn’t put their displays out yet.
There’s a noticeable scarcity of Makita Black Friday deals at Home Depot this year – I wonder why. Maybe it just has to do with space, or perhaps there were supply chain limitations.
This Gorilla Ladders aluminum work platform is priced at $24. I wish mine had an integrated handle like this one.
The online price says $23.88, but the photo I took at the store had multiple signs pricing this at $24.88.
Sounds like a good reason to order online for in-store pickup. Hey, a dollar is a dollar – that’s a 4% difference here.

STILL waiting for a DCN680 deal…..
You might be waiting a while. Why not snag it when retails have a percent off or dollar off promo?
They actually had the bare tool for $199 vs the $230-250 that I usually see it at.
At least in my local store here in Puerto Rico I had never seen it in stock and Amazon hasn’t had it for a while.
Then out of nowhere without it being in any adds or here in toolguyd, 3 of them showed up at each store (as per HD app) for $199. I snatched one up immediately as I was looking to buy one for a while, even at regular price
I might have to buy it for you from Farm and Fleet and ship it to Cali, since they don’t ship to you. At the moment it is $249 for the bare tool, but it comes with “free” 5Ah DCB205 battery. Otherwise they run the 2Ah kit on sale for $199 quite a bit (currently $259), that’s when I snagged mine.
But as Eugino mentioned, most online retailers (Acme, CPO, etc.) have it marked down to $199 for the bare tool right now, which is decent.
I ordered it from Acme around this time.last year. By March it still hadn’t shipped. So I’m still hunting. $199 for the tool + 2ah is on point for me. I’d prefer to be around the 150 mark for bare tool though
Ouch, sorry to hear that.
I’ve been to HD several times in the past weeks, and quite a bit of the time, the BF deal stuff rings up as full price, and even when the cashier goes and gets the printed ad to check if it’s really one of the BF items on sale, they try to convince me that it must be the same item but not on sale, even on the “pro” stuff where the display and the sign with the BF price on it is visible from the pro checkout register.
So, just a heads up if you’re going to HD in person.
Yup, the klein test kit rang up 29.88 even though the display says 24.88, luckily snapped a pic because it was empty but later found one elsewhere.
I don’t know if you would call it “Pro” because it’s Porter Cable but I picked up one of these today for $199:
Porter-Cable 6 Gal. 150 PSI Portable Electric Air Compressor with 16-Gauge, 18-Gauge and 23-Gauge Nailer Combo Kit (3-Tool)
It’s in store only and they are vanishing super fast. I got the 3rd to last one at the only HD l could find that still had them. I was watching them sell out at all my nearby stores the last few weeks and had to buy now. They had a kit like this in the past, but since the introduction of the Craftsman kit which was identical to the old kit that had a stapler, SBD swapped the stapler for the pin nailer and now they can’t keep them in stock. I think it’s a very good deal.
On another note, I got that Gorilla platform last year and love it. You can’t beat it for $24.
I think that’s damn good. I have a porter cable compressor maybe from like 06. Still works great. 3 guns and 200. I thinkcm8ne was like 150 or something back then with just one gun lol
Thanks! I haven’t seen it at any of the 3 stores I checked so far.
Combos like that are a good value unless you start adding a lot to it, such as upgrading the nailers right out of the gate. Does seem like a decent deal, and I would agree that a pin nailer increases its appeal.
Are there any combos with upgraded airtools that anyone has seen? Is there the next step up, quality-wise for one of these compressor/air tool combos?
I am looking for a portable air compressor, framing nailer, finish and brad nailer, I was hoping to spend only 300 for all of that, but that is probably unrealistic with my mid-grade tool quality expectations.
Maybe yes when there’s a deal of the day and special bundle configurations, but for the air compressor and nailer combination bundles, the goal is for maximum bang for the buck. And they’re normally bundled with a finish or brad nailer – I’ve never seen framing nailers included in the standard money-saving bundles.
You should be able to find a bundle with brad, finish, and staple nailers, and add a framing nailer on top of it. You’re looking at a budget of $350-$400 for a 3-nailer and compressor combo plus your choice of framing nailer. You might be able to find a framing nailer on sale for less than the $169 for the Dewalt above, but that seems to be the low end of pricing for quality brands.
Hitachi/HPT 21° for $149 at Amazon
Bostitch 28° for $169 at Amazon
Lowe’s will have a Metabo HPT framing and finish nailer kit – https://toolguyd.com/lowes-black-friday-2020-tool-deals/ for $199. But then you still need an air compressor ($99), and 2 nailers, plus hoses and connectors.
There is also a Bostitch 3-tool combo kit, but it’s presently $268 via Amazon. That’s one more to watch.
I also cannot find that Dewalt 160 piece but set anywhere. I think you’re right, looks like they are holding that back for a surprise deal later on.
I’m in for the Dewalt tape measures. I’ve gone for the Milwaukee in the past on these types of promotions but they don’t last long before a foot of tape won’t retract. It’s happened with both the 16’ and 25’ tapes on several occasions. Surely I’m not the only one to experience this? The couple of times I attempted to open the case to see if there was a way to reload the spring, parts fly, the tape flies out of my hand as the spring comes completely uncoiled and a tangled mess of metal high viz tape and red plastic hits the floor. I just trash them now. I have a very respectable M12 collection along with other Big Red tools that are great, but I’ve given up hope on their tape measures……save the 6’ key ring size I’ve had since they were introduced. Not much consolation.
Sad to hear this. Have gone all in on the Milwaukee with the great visibility and markings on both sides.
Letting the kids use my 30 year old Sears and Craftsman tapes because of the improvements.
Will see how they last. Am sure I don’t use mine as much as many of y’all.
The Compact moniker is pretty funny though. They are noticeably smaller than the standard when in hand but not what I would call compact. And hard to tell much difference from a distance.
Has anyone seen router bit sets? I picked up the Milwaukee router and I always remember there being cheap sets for Black Friday but I’m not seeing them.
Rockler seems to have a sale on at least some of their bits.
MLCS has a starter set they say is sale priced:
Thanks for the link, just what I was looking for!
Anyone have thoughts on quality of these? Seem carbide tipped
I just guess “fair to middling”
MLCS sells what they tout as an upgraded brand they call Katana – but at a higher price.
My choice in router bits are Whiteside – but also use Amana, CMT Freud and Southeast Tool bits.
The Whiteside 401 – 7 piece starter set is priced at $110 on Amazon. Amazon sells a Freud 4 piece set for $68 and a 13 piece set for $190. But Amazon also sells several cheap sets like this one that comes out to $1.08 per bit – (quality ??? – but many good reviews) :
I have this set (1/4″) that I’ve been using for small projects with a cordless Dewalt router. So far I’ve had no issues or complaints. These are probably your best value/price combination.
Not really a “cheap” set, but if you want a quality set at a decent price, try Timberline. They are a division of Amana Tool, so they are pretty nice.
For what its worth . I suspect that the cheap sets are made in China
Looking at the COO of the router bits that I own:
Amana – Israel
Bosch – Israel
CMT – Italy
Eagle-America (pre MLCS takeover) – USA
Freud – Italy
Infinity Cutting Tools – USA and Unspecified
Katana – Taiwan
Lee Valley – Taiwan
MLCS – China
Oldham – USA
Onsrud – USA
Porter-Cable – Taiwan
Rockler – Taiwan
Southeast Tool – USA
Whiteside – USA
I don’t have any timberline router bits – but do have countersinks and counterbores from them that were made in Israel.
Also I should note – like Grainger says – COOs are subject to change and my list is just a snapshot in time that was valid when I purchased various bits.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the DeWalt 12″ chainsaw. I bought it full price, and have it in my chainsaw mess along with the 16″ m18 and 18″ kobalt 80v. I wouldn’t try it for felling, but man it’s a joy to use on limbing. Battery life is surprisingly good on the 5ah batts. If anything it feels overpowered for the 12″ bar. The real killer feature though is the size. It can be one handed
Second that. Bought it is a limbing saw for in tree use and/or quick small jobs. It is small enough and easy enough to handle that my wife has more or less claimed it as hers. I run it with a 6Ah or 8Ah for extra power over the “stock” 5Ah, and it does last surprisingly long.
Agreed! Might be a little slower than my 16″ Still but just barely and the convenience more than outweighs the power difference.
Loving the 20v axial blower too.
Agreed. Love mine. And I have taken down some pretty good sized trees with it.
Too bad those Milwaukee pack out socket sets are SAE. Couple Toyota’s in the drive now, but even the last 10 years or so of driving 90’s suburbans – barely have had any need for a fractional socket or wrench.
That surprises me too.
These days I keep my SAE sockets and wrenches in a whole separate, lower-grade and rarely used tool chest because I need them so rarely. I can’t imagine I’m alone since deals on metric sets always seem to sell out faster too. Not sure why Milwaukee would choose to make the deal an SAE set.
Here’s the metric set – also $99. It’s the same elsewhere, but Home Depot is the only one with free shipping on $99.
The link doesn’t work
Thanks! Sorry, forgot a / .
HD had the 106 piece 3/8th and 1/4 set metric and SAE in wide compact packout case for 199, normally 299. I thought that was a great deal yesterday. Unfornuately shopped around and went to buy today and sold out. Hopefully they release more inventory of it.
I wish they would have a 1/2 socket system in packout soon. I like the neatness of a commercial item vs what I could make.
They also have the non-Packout sets on sale.
If you like this form factor but don’t necessarily need it to be Milwaukee, also check out the Wera sets, e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Wera-8100-SB-Ratchet-38-Piece/dp/B0024LRV00/?tag=toolguyd-20 I bought a second set from Amazon during the November 2018 Black Friday sale. It’s limited compared to a set with deep sockets, but most of what I need in a portable kit.
Am I dreaming or was this set $99 last year?
3/8 in. Drive SAE/Metric Ratchet and Socket Mechanics Tool Set (56-Piece)
Kicking myself for missing it, nice form factor and no bs screwdriver bits, Allen keys, or 1/4 sockets
Not that I’ve seen?
Thanks for the clarification!
FYI for Canadians, looks like we get this in Canada this year too (we didn’t to my knowledge last year):
$129 CDN versus $99 USD, but that’s not too bad. Not in-stock online or in-store according to the webpage, but maybe they’re holding off till black Friday.
