With all the Black Friday week, Cyber Monday week, and holiday tool deals going on right now, what did you buy?
Here’s what I bought:
Hand Tools: Some Wera tools from Amazon’s ongoing promotion, and also from KC Tool’s Thanksgiving weekend sale. I also bought some NWS and Felo tools from KC Tool, a pair of Milwaukee 16′ tape measures, and a Knipex wire stripper from Amazon DE since it was half the price I could get it for here, even with international shipping. I also ordered a couple of new pocket knives for testing and review.
I wanted to buy a couple of PB Swiss technician screwdrivers to give as gifts, but the shipping was just too expensive, negating the deal. $16 to ship what can fit in a $5 flat rare shipping box? Or a bubble mailer? Maybe next year.
Power Tools: 2x Milwaukee M12 drill kit + Packout tool box bundles (one of which I already gave away), an M12 cordless screwdriver kit, and all of the $99 promo drill kits, which I’m still working on testing.
Update: I also bought an M18 vacuum kit.
Tool Storage: Some Akro Mils parts cabinets, and I’m giving Zoro another chance at sending me Durham drawer racks. I ordered them 4 years ago and they arrived damaged and crooked, so I returned them. Hopefully this time will be different.
Other: I ordered a Shapeoko CNC router. It’s not my “dream” machine, but it’s a fraction of the price, and will be a good learning platform.
Side Note: I have some kind of viral or bacterial infection, and so I’ll be resting today and probably tomorrow too. Don’t worry if things seem slow for a few days.
