Jay wrote in, asking about holiday ball bearing tool storage combo deals. Or at least I assume he’s talking about ball bearing units and not ones with friction glide slides. Not that friction glide slides are better, but these days most of what you’ll find, even on entry-level products, are ball bearing drawer slides.
Anyway, here’s the question, followed by my response.
Do you know of any tool chest combo deals for Black Friday? I saw the ones at Sears, but do you know of any others?
Yep. Looking through Sears’ 2014 Black Friday ad, there are a bunch of Craftsman ball bearing tool storage combo specials. Sears usually has the same or similar deals as in previous years, and then continues with certain storage combo deals throughout the holiday season.
Home Depot often has a couple of Husky combos on sale, and Lowes sometimes has an entry-level Kobalt or Task Force special or two.
Home Depot and Lowes adscans aren’t available yet this year, so it’s hard to say which combos might be on sale.
Another option to consider is looking at what’s offered at MSC, Zoro, Enco, or other industrial suppliers. They often have decent coupon codes for Black Friday and then Cyber Monday which could be used on Waterloo, Kennedy, or Proto branded combos.
But generally, Sears is the retailer with the most tool storage deals, and often better ones at that.
For those of you who are also looking to buy new tool storage components or combos this holiday season, which brands or models are you considering most closely?
