In recent years I have been buying 99.9% of my screws and other fasteners online. Home Depot now stocks Spax screws, a good reason to start purchasing screws locally again. Read More
Here’s a thumbs-up-invoking great customer service story that was posted to the Consumerist this morning about Home Depot. Read More
We take a closer look at some of the new gift cards & gift card holders that caught our eye at the local Home Depot. Read More
Earlier this month we wrote about the new Ridgid JobMax starter kits on Home Depot’s website that feature the standard starter kit and a free attachment tool head of choice, but people had problems getting on the deal. It looks like Home Depot fixed things – the kits are no longer “out of stock” and […]
We recently republished a reader’s review of the new Husky ratcheting rotary socket wrench that he left in comment to our post about the tool. It has since come to light that this comment/review may have been FAKE. Until we get to the bottom of this, please consider the republished user review to be invalid. In the […]
This weekend I visited a few major tool and home improvement stores for a sneak peek of their winter holiday tool gift displays. As expected, the two Home Depots closest to me had most of their displays up already. Similar to last year’s selection, there were a few power tools in the mix, but there was a […]
During a recent visit to my local Home Depot, I snapped a few more close-up pics of the new Husky universal ratcheting rotary wrench. The above photo shows the 5/16″ socket of the new 48-in-1 dog bone wrench, and below are photos of the 9/16″ socket.
Dan sent us a heads-up about Husky’s new universal spline ratcheting wrench. I was already heading off to Home Depot that day, so I made a point to check it out. This Husky 48-in-1 “ratcheting rotary socket wrench” is essentially a universal dog bone wrench similar in design to Black & Decker’s new ratcheting ReadyWrench.
Over at HomeDepot.com, you can now find new Ridgid JobMax starter kits that include the tools you want for less money. Previously, getting the tool you wanted to start with meant having to buy the power handle & multi-tool starter kit for $100 and a separate tool head for $50 more. These new kits offer the […]
While most power tools are now manufactured overseas, many hand tools are still made in the USA, Canada, England and other countries with long traditions of producing top-quality tools with pride. In recent years, more and more domestic factories have closed their doors and shuttered their windows, making it more important than ever to know where tools […]
Over at my local Home Depot, I spotted a display of 15 cheap flashlights for $15. Each flashlight features 6 LEDs, and batteries are included. These are similar to the generic flashlights sold at Amazon, Meritline, and Harbor Freight. These flashlights aren’t reliable enough to count on in an emergency situation, nor are they durable enough […]
Home Depot is having a “Spring Cyber Monday” online-only sale today. As part of their sale, Home Depot is selling Ryobi’s Auto Hammer for an obscenely low $20. We reviewed the Auto Hammer a few months ago, and had some mixed feelings about. At $20 (plus shipping), the Auto Hammer now costs less than a […]
Yesterday we mentioned a judgement against Home Depot for copying a patented saw design that they refused to pay the inventor for. I searched for additional information about this online, but without pulling the court documents, we have no choice but to rely on secondary sources. After scouring the web a bit, a few additional […]
Just saw this on the Consumerist – Home Depot lost a lawsuit and was ordered to pay $25 million for copying a saw guard invention that it refused to buy for use in its stores. Home Depot Called Arrogant and Ordered to Pay Inventor Millions
Home Depot is having a springtime Black Friday sale, with a few great deals to be had. We took a look at their power tools section, and while some of the deals seemed good, these Ryobi 12V cordless tool deals jumped out as great bargains.
As previously mentioned, the Ryobi Tek4 5-piece kit features two new additions to the Tek4 lineup – a cordless screwdriver, and power snips. We gave these new Tek4 tools some more thought, and were able to briefly give them a try in-store. All in all, we are pretty optimistic about these new tools, and the […]
There is a power tool clearance going on at Home Depot, with some tools selling for more than half-off. Following are some of the deals that you can expect to find: Milwaukee M12 3/8″ drill + radio $79 (compared to $180 on Amazon) Dewalt 4-pc cordless tool set $200 (hard to find in stock; $500 on […]
