The 347pc mechanics tool set caught my attention. it comes with a whole lot of tools, a 26″ tool chest, and tidy fitted foam trays for all the tools. Plus some of the new Kobalt Pro90 ratchets. It’s a little pricy, at $399, but looks to offer a lot of bang for the buck.
I also spotted the new Kobalt 73pc general purpose tool set the other day, in the Lowes tool deals listing. It’s a convenient-looking “just the basics” tool kit for homeowners, and with a custom place for each of the tools.

That router and router table bundle looks interesting. My first router table was a standalone $100 Ryobi model that I paired with a good router. I’ve upgraded from that Ryobi, but my router’s still going strong. Still, that combo’s at an attractive price point for new woodworkers on a very tight budget.

Porter Cable 20V Max drill and impact driver combo kit: $99 (Compare at Amazon)

Porter Cable Folding 10″ corded miter saw: $119
Porter Cable 20V Max 18 gauge cordless brad nailer: $149 (Compare at Amazon)
The Porter Cable cordless brad nailer kit especially caught my attention. $149 is around the lowest you could get a good pancake air compressor and starter brad nailer for.

Porter Cable 12pc oscillating multi-tool kit: $49
Porter Cable 4-1/2″ compact corded circular saw: $89

Bosch 41pc drill and drive bit set: $15 (Compare at Amazon)
Bosch 47pc screwdriver bit set: $10 (Live Deal at Amazon)
Bosch Power Box 360 with Bluetooth: $179 (Live Deal at Amazon)
These are stronger Hitachi and Bosch deals than I expected. Sweet.
The Bosch 18V combo kit is long in the tooth, but has been upgraded with 2.0Ah battery packs. It’s also lower priced than it used to be. I own an older version of this kit, and can definitely recommend it. The drill isn’t as heavy duty as I’ve needed, but I remain attached to it and the impact driver.
I don’t think you’ll find a better 18V-class “meant to be sold all year as a regular item” combo kit at this price point.
That Bosch 12V Max drill and impact driver combo kit looks to be a good buy. There will also be a Milwaukee combo on sale at Home Depot this year. I like both brands, and both brands’ 12V-class tools, but Milwaukee offers far better expandability. Just sayin’.
Dewalt 20V Max brushless drill and impact driver combo kit: $159 (Compare at Amazon)
Dewalt 20V Max 10-tool cordless power tool combo kit: $599 (Compare at Amazon)
Dewalt 12″ compound miter saw: $179 (Compare at Amazon)
Dewalt 20V Max brushless cordless combo kit with rotomolded cooler: $229
Dewalt 20V Max 3.0Ah battery pack 2-pack: $99 (Deal Live at Amazon)
The Dewalt brushless drill and impact driver combo kit is made only slightly more appealing with the cooler. BUT these are their entry-level tools. And you’re not getting that cooler for free – you’re paying for it, albeit a discounted amount.
Unless you really want that Dewalt-branded rotomolded cooler, spend the same money on better tools, such as Milwaukee’s standalone M18 compact brushless drill and impact driver kits.
Dewalt oscillating multi-tool kit: $99 (Compare at Amazon)
Dewalt 10A reciprocating saw: $79 (Deal Live at Amazon)

Irwin 4-pack of 6″ Quick-Grip mini bar clamps: $15 (Compare at Amazon)
Bostitch 6 gallon air compressor with 3-tool combo kit: $199 (Deal Live at Amazon)
Those Irwin Quick-Grip clamps are “just okay.” I’ve got 8 of them, and purchased them in similar 4-packs, when they popped up at $20 a pack. $15 is a good price for some entry-level but still quite useful trigger bar clamps.

Dewalt 20V Max 4-tool cordless tool kit: $249 (Compare at Amazon)

Werner 17ft telescoping multi-position ladder: $79 (See Reviews at Amazon)
Milwaukee Steel D-handle hand truck: $29
Utilitech 40ft outdoor extension cord: $10
I love stocking up on alkaline batteries this time of year. $6 for 36 AA or AAA is a great price. I still have a few sets from last year, when I bought 60-count AA and AAA packs for $20.
The Dewalt 20V Max 4-tool and 6-tool cordless power tool combo kits, also available at Amazon (and will presumably be at the same Black Friday pricing), look to be new for the 2017 holiday season. That means that the “was” pricing can never be fully trusted, in my opinion.
While such combo kits can be good buys, keep in mind that they often have the “entry-level” version of certain tools, in this case being the circular saw and reciprocating saw. With this kit, model DCK620D2, you get (2) compact 2.0Ah battery packs.
It’s good to see the kit come with 2.0Ah battery packs instead of 1.5Ah packs, or worse – 1.3Ah. But if you’re using the kit a lot, you’re going to find yourself wishing for a higher capacity battery pack.
Reminder: There are some other “Special Buys.” If they’re not mentioned here, chances are that they’re at the price they’re going to be. Some of the tool deals from the Black Friday 2017 sales flyer are also already at their sale price, at the same link.
