I stopped by Home Depot today, to see if they had any new tool deals to add to our Home Depot Black Friday 2020 Tool Deals roundup, and I remembered to check the tool box section.
I was looking to see if they were matching the $35 sale pricing of the Milwaukee Packout organizers, when I came across a new compact Packout organizer and saw blade accessory set.
Ooh. That’s new. Probably on sale for $80, right? That’s what my first thought was, since Milwaukee does have some pricey Packout and tool accessory combo bundle offerings.
I took a closer look.
You get 5 sizes of hole saws, an arbor, pilot drill bits, and 12 reciprocating saw blades in 3 styles.
I quickly did some math. The Milwaukee compact Packout organizer is usually $30, minus $6 for a new set of bins (it doesn’t come with any) for those that really want them. The Sawzall reciprocating saw blades are usually 5 for $13 for all three styles. So that’s roughly $31 in value for the 12 blades.
Milwaukee has a 9pc Hole Dozer set, with smaller sizes of hole saws than what you get here, for $30.
So, you get the rough value of $85, for $50. Good deal.
Here’s everything you get:
- 5 Hole saw sizes
- 7/16″ arbor and 2 pilot drill bits
- (4) 6″ 18 TPI metal-cutting Sawzall blade (5184)
- (4) 6″ 14 TPI metal-cutting Sawzall blade (5182)
- (4) 6″ 5 TPI wood with nails Sawzall blade (5035)
At the time of this posting, Home Depot is offering free shipping on this set. You can’t order it online for in-store pickup. You could try to find it at your local store, but not all stores might have. Skip the crowds and order it online.
Let’s see – you get ~$31 in Sawzall reciprocating saw blades, plus ~$30 in hole saws, although the value is probably a little higher due to the sizing compared to the set I used for reference pricing. That’s already $61.
There’s another Milwaukee 12pc Sawzall blade set with small case for $30. So, let’s drop the approximate replacement value of what you get in this bundle to $25.
Basically, this is a really good deal. You get good, sorry GREAT cutting accessories, and a Packout organizer.
You can either add some bins to the organizer to use for small parts, keep it with the included foam liner to organize the included accessories, or use it for tools or whatever else in the future. This is much better than a flimsy blowmolded case.
Who’s in for one?
