Sears’ Black Friday 2010 sales flyer has been leaked all over the web. We took a close look at all of the tool deals and clipped out what we thought were the best ones. We found that most of the better deals were “DoorBusters”, meaning they are only valid on Friday 11/26 from 4am through noon.
These deals might be available online on Black Friday, probably not, but you never know.
Gladiator Premier 30-in GearBox Wall Cabinet
This is Gladiator’s welded 30-in GearBox, not to be confused with their more economical RTA (ready to assemble) lineup.
Gearwrench 7pc Flex Head or Craftsman 8pc Flat Ratcheting Wrench Sets
The last time we posted about a $30 deal on these ratcheting wrenches was over a year ago. Most of the time we’re lucky to see these on sale at half-off for $45 at best. $30 is 67% off!
Craftsman GripLatch Ball Bearing Storage Combo
This deal comes around every now and then, but we haven’t seen it for a few months. It’s a pretty darn good deal, too – $700 for a GripLatch ball bearing 40-inch 8-drawer top chest and 14-drawer roll-away cabinet.
Craftsman 200 pc Mechanic’s Tool Set
This set includes 200 tools/pieces, including 128 sockets. We’re not familiar with this set configuration, and Sears’ website says that it’s a newly added catalog item. In any case, $100 is pretty reasonable considering how many sockets are included.
Craftsman Nextec 12V Lithium Ion 4-Tool Combo Kit
We previewed this new cordless combo a few months ago, but haven’t quite seen many reviews about the new sander and saw. From what we’ve read and have seen for ourselves, the tools should be up to most light to duty tasks.
Craftsman 12V Nextec 19.2V C3 Cordless Drill Kits
Here you have a choice of Craftsman’s Nextec 12V drill/driver, or their C3 19.2V drill/driver, both at $50 each. Of the two, we would recommend the Nextec drill for its lithium-ion batteries over the C3’s NiCad, despite the power differences.
Craftsman Professional 20V Li-ion Drill/Driver Kit
Craftsman’s Professional 20V drill/driver is also discounted by 50%. It looks a bit bulky for our tastes, but should be perfect for heavier duty applications.
Rockwell Jawhorse & Craftsman Professional 20V Li-ion 3-Tool Combo Kit
Craftsman’s Professional 3-tool 20V cordless tool combo will also be on sale for $200, which is half-off. Included is a full-size 7-1/2″ cordless circular saw, a drill/drover (same as mentioned above), and a flashlight.
