Lindstrom Pliers price Reduction via Amazon (sale prices $20-30, normally $50-60) – We briefly reviewed some of these pliers a while back and found them to be absolutely spectacular! These are great precision pliers and snips for the price, even better at half-off.
Vaughan 19oz Steel Framing Hammer for $9, eligible for Prime or super-saver shipping. (Update: currently sold out from the 3rd party Amazon-fulfilled seller & full price from other sellers.)
General Tools Pocket Precision Screwdriver 24-pack for ~$8 (slight hassle risk in case a single item is mistakenly listing as a bulk pack)
Dewalt DC759KA 18V NiCad Drill for $90 via Lowes through 9/5/11. Note that this is the same drill that has been offered for $90-$100 during the past few holiday shopping season. (Amazon price comparison)
Beta Tools Blowout – we’re not what’s going on here, but every Beta tool that we’ve been keeping an eye out for dropped in price significantly overnight; looks like a clearance to us.
Weird. They seem to be selling a lot of “empty thermoformed trays” with pictures of tools in them. Is it actually just the tray for sale?
Correct, those are just the trays, no tools included unless it specifically mentions them.
Thanks for the Beta info. Of course my wife now hates the both of us. But, some of those tool deals were impossible to pass up.
You’re very welcome! I kept my head on, only ordering a few items this time.
I happened to find the Vaughn hammer deal a few days ago on Amazon, I was looking for a new hammer and the deal seemed to good to pass up. Looks like it’s back to $29.99 again.
If you’ve already received the hammer, what are your impressions of it? I have a similarly styled Vaughan ball pein, and have been pretty satisfied with it.
It does look like the Amazon-fulfilled seller sold out of their $9 hammer supply. A shame, but maybe they’ll restock at one point.
“I happened to find the Vaughn hammer deal a few days ago on Amazon, I was looking for a new hammer and the deal seemed to good to pass up. Looks like it’s back to $29.99 again.”
And now I’m seeing $35.50…
My hammer showed up today, for $9.99 I am very impressed. It seems to be a typical Vaughn quality hammer labeled “Made in USA.” Reading some of the reviews on Amazon I wasn’t sure what to expect but it is a framers hammer with the waffle face. For the price I think this may be one of the best deals I have come across on Amazon in a while.
