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.
-Bosch GAS18 V-3N 18 V Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum from Lowes in store for $99 minus 10% military discount.
-Dewalt DCST990M1 40V MAX XR 4.0 Ah Lithium-Ion Brushless 15 in. String Trimmer for $219 minus $25 off Dewalt order over 100 from CPO online.
Didn’t realize but I paid $6.99 for shipping on my CPO order and if my total was more than $199 before taxes I could have gotten free shipping. On the plus size I already received the Dewalt trimmer yesterday morning, that was fast.
My wife thinks I’m crazy because I brought the vacuum with me to work and used it for my truck during my lunch break. haha Works awesome!!!
I just found out about this website and its been super helpful for me as I teach myself how to build things with wood by following along in the book “build stuff with wood” by Asa Christiana. This site helped me make a bunch of tool decisions this past week – just picked up the DeWalt 716xps Amazon deal for $249, the Milwaukee 18v brushless drill impact combo kit with packout box for $199, as well as the black and Decker 5amp jigsaw for $29. Got a lot of other odds and ends, Milwaukee shockwave 23 piece drill bits for $19, Milwaukee 104 piece bit set (free upgrade to the 142 piece set) for $19, etc. Thanks for all of the amazing deal info and reviews!
I didn’t go too hog wild, but I scored a Bosch RA1171 Router table for $110 from Amazon.ca (regular $279 in Canada). I did HAVE to buy a couple of extra Bosch router bits to qualify for the 30-off-$149 deal, but the ones I bought were already 50%+ off too, so it was well worth it.
I also got a Porter-Cable Drill and Impact Driver combo – with a bonus 2.0ah battery – for $99 from Lowes. I do not need either tool (I have two Bosch drills and an impact driver already), but that was too good a deal for 3 extra batteries and a charger to use with my PC grinder, jigsaw and nailer.
Overall not that many exciting deals in Canada this year unfortunately, but these two were great.
Grabbed a couple doorbusters at KC Tool
Gedore Pliers Wrench w/free bottle opener
NWS Combi Pliers
Threw in a Wiha PZ2 bit to pad for shipping. I’m ready next time I have to assemble some Ikea furniture. 🙂
How is that plier’s wrench? The Knipex 10″ is probably my all-time favorite tool, so I’m curious about the versions from other brands (Wiha and Wurth too).
The wiha ones seem like they would be more annoying as they adjust like channellocks where u open the handle wide and then slide it into position. I am waiting on the gedores to ship but I think they will be functionally identical to the knipex.
I picked up the 10″ Gedore too, I don’t have the 10″ Knipex, but I have the 7-1/4″ and I drool at the 10 inchers every time I go by them at Menards.
The Gedore ones seem pretty close, to the Knipex, but I think they might be a litter beefier.
POWER+ 15 in. 56-Volt Lithium ion Cordless String Trimmer w/5.0Ah Battery and Charger for EGO Multi-Head System for $247 + tax (saved $100)
MILWAUKEE M12 Stapler+ free battery for $99
I was hoping to get the stapler for a bit less – but I need it for a project during xmas so didn’t want to wait any longer.
I bought so much FlexVolt stuff it’s not even funny. And used my PayPal Credit account for 0% for 24months.
Miter saw, table saw, planer, grinder, impact driver, 12ah batteries, sander, router, worm circular, shop vac, titanium bits .
I cleaned up.
Milwaukee 7 1/4 slide miter with battery, $250 at HD, Milwaukee string trimmer with free 9ah battery, $249 at ACME, router bit set, Dewalt green laser, maybe a pack or kit later today…
I didn’t buy a single thing.
GOOD FOR YOU!
While I like the thought of getting a bargain – and use this past weekend “sales” to do some Christmas shopping – I worry about folks who go into debt in pursuit of a bargain.
I’m happy to say (and have been blessed that I can say) that the only loans I ever took were business loans to raise some capital for expansion and the mortgages on my houses. I’ve always bought cars and other stuff when I had the finances to do so without incurring debt.
I bought a majority of the KC Tools Cyber Monday offerings and on top of that a many Wera offerings from KC Tool, Amazon, and Amazon.de. I also picked up the Bosch PS32 drill kit from Amazon and that brushless body is already swapped with my Flexiclick. Not sure if I will keep the remaining brushed drill or give it away.
Finally, DeWalt brushless drill and OMT combo from Home Depot and a number of in store items at Home Depot and Lowes (saw blades, levels, a set of Worx sawhorses the same height/style as my 2 Pegasus units).
I wish DeWalt had cheaper 12ah batteries. I would have picked up four if I found them at the Milwaukee price.
I haven’t gotten much this holiday season but I did spring for, likely, the same Dewalt drill and multi-tool combo from Home Depot you got. I was mainly in the market for just the multi-tool deal for $99, but when I saw the $139 combo I figured getting a drill and another battery for $40 was worth it.
All kinds of weird stuff. Bosch shears. Wera. Knipex. Milwaukee M12 battery sets. Stabila. Mostly Amazon. Some HD, KCTool and even one single Lowe’s thing. (Lowe’s truly blows in my area at least).
Always from lists I’ve kept (mostly in my lousy memory).
Really glad Stuart provides us all with so many “deal” leads and just as important product assessments and leads.
Though I doubt my wife agrees and my colleagues at work are always laughing about the volume of boxes I seem to receive all too often.
Merry Next Cyber Day To All. Etc. Etc.
Oh. I’ve a question.
Do you guys typically resell older but very decent tools or donate them to places like Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Store?
I’ve run out of friends to gift stuff to.
Habitat for humanity, the local high school, local contractors, family (for purchased tools), readers, and the local Home Depot manager helps with big and heavy stuff and donates it to local police and fire departments.
The high school got a lot of stuff last year and will get more this year.
I have 2 primary rules – no trading tools for favors or services, and never selling tools. For personal tools it’s too much trouble, for samples it’s against our ethics.
I sell stuff that has collector value when it’s older tools, since I think it’d be a shame to just give it away and have it abused and wrecked if it’s something a collector might want/need to complete their collection. This is especially the case with tools that were once manufactured in the USA but the newer versions are manufactured overseas.
For newer/common tools or items where any possible sale value would be lost in the hassle of selling/shipping, it’s often best to donate, if possible to organizations that you know for sure can use the tools, and not just ones that might sell them for scrap metal.
Sometimes friends you have already given stuff to still might want some of the other stuff as well. It’s not a bad idea to have duplicates of common tools and they may want the extras for keeping handy in other locations, or using older worn tools for dirty jobs and keeping newer tools for regular use.
I’ll be happy to be your friend Jim. All kidding aside, I also have a habitat for humanity nearby so they get whatever my friends don’t need.
When you run businesses – donations of used equipment or other things can be tricky. Do you make representation about the serviceability of said equipment? What liability do you assume for any injuries or damage that occurs from the use of said equipment? When you sell items “as is” the buyer presumably takes on any risks – so that can be a less complicated transaction.
We were often advised not to donate equipment without having a signed and notarized release of liability from the recipient – and even then were told to be cautious. Cash donations were always cleaner and preferable IMO. When asked by non-profits to donate equipment or services for “charitable” undertakings – we would check with our insurance carrier and, if advised, take additional coverage to deal with the added liability. Crazy IMO – but we live in a litigious society.
Same Milwaukee M18 7-1/4 sliding miter saw with battery, $250 at HD.
I thought the deal for the same miter saw + battery + saw blade at HD ~1month ago was already pretty good at ~$350, but apparently cyber monday’s was even better. So going to return last month’s purchase and keep the cyber monday’s deal at $100 cheaper.
I also picked up a bunch of random stuff, not much to talk about it. Maybe besides the Dewalt 20v inflator at ACME for $69, I heard the dewalt’s much faster than the ryobi 18v inflator that I have (which is indeed very slow to inflate large them tires).
– Hitachi 18g cordless nailer. My local Lowes is one of the CA locations being shut down so it was 20% off the Blackk Friday sale price.
– CLC carpenters backpack from Amazon’s cyber Monday. Hoping it will help speed up the morning van unload.
I bought some gifts:
A M12 (2416-21XC) SDS 5/8 rotohammer – 1 battery /charger and bag kit for $199 minus 18% at Acme
Some Bondhus bit sets and some Williams items at Zoro – taking advantage of their 25% off on $299 Cyber Monday sale
Seneca’s new Domiplate for 5/8 and 7/8 inch plywood
I bought the 10″ gedore plierswrench and the 10″ cobra pliers from kc tool. I think they underestimated the popularity of the gedore pliers because shipping has beed pushed back a couple of weeks. But for almost half the price of the knipex plierswrench it was a no brainer.
I’ve been waiting for the sales, so had a set budget – thanks for helping me find the best deals! Ended up with a Hitachi worksite saw and a few Ryobi One + batteries, along with a Ryobi One+ nailer and although not discounted, the Ryobi cordless glue gun. I think the glue gun is my favorite:)
Enjoy the Shapeoko! I have an X-carve, they are great tools to learn CNC ‘thinking’ on, and very capable within their limits.
Had high hopes, but ended up buying a heck of a lot of Lego Technic for my son.
Get well soon Stuart. Being sick at this time of year sucks.
I somehow ran across a clearance for the Bosch DDS183WC-102 (drill kit + 2 wireless 2AH batteries/charger).
It started at $127, which is already a screaming deal but then I was able to apply a cyber monday 20% coupon code to get it down to $108.40 shipping and tax included.
You can can still get this deal for under $130 at http://www.cpooutlets.com with the $30 off $150 Bosch deal they’re running.
CPO my new fav!
Correction. Actually only came with 1 battery. The photo shows two batteries but the fine print says one.
Live and learn. Still a good deal but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t pissed about the deceptive advertising.
Didnt buy much but I did get the Dewalt DWP611PK deal for 129-25*tax. Mine was 114ish out the door. Cant wait to use it!
Not a whole lot for BF/CM, just a pair of plastic saw horses (2 for $20) from Lowe’s, the 3M four pack of safety glasses from HD, and 3 sets of 2 HDX storage boxes from HD.
But I’d already blown too much on the Newark close out sale (Wera hammer ratchet, Wera screwdriver sets, Wera toolcheck auto set, Wiha bit set, etc), eBay (got an amazing deal on the JGAurora professional 3D printer), and Prusa (took advantage of free shipping & $20 survey coupon to finally order my MMU upgrade)
The 14.4V NiCad battery died ($50 to replace NOT) on my bulky 7-year-old Dewalt drill so I took notice of the cyber Monday $60 off sale on Amazon (pointed out here) of the much lighter/compact Bosch PS32 drill/driver kit with 12V lithium batteries and had it delivered the next day with free shipping.
Makita 9404 belt sander
Veritas factory second low angle block plane
Benzomatic Torch Kit
Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hackzall Kit
Freud dado stack
Still looking for a strong, but small miter saw that fits in the closet.
Not a thing. There wasn’t anything out there that I needed, wanted or thought was a good enough deal. There’s still time for new stuff to go on sale or existing things to get priced better so I’m hopeful. If not, the beer money remains secure.
Veritas router plane (blemished second, but I don’t see a blemish) for $124. Ordered early a.m. Monday, arrived Wednesday! Makita XRJ07R1B 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Sub-Compact Brushless Recipro Saw Kit for $113. This kit is back up to $219, so thanks, Stuart for the heads up!
I also got the Ryobi 10″ sliding compound miter saw, from Toolguyd miter saw post. Holiday special of $130, but I had a $15 coupon, so $115. It’s likely I’ll take it back, but I thought this would give me some time to decide. It’s still in the box.
Thing is, I recently saw an easy and apparently very successful dust collection hack for this specific machine. Love my current non-slider, but hate, really hate, the sawdust. I’ve tried a few hacks, none worked. So, I’m on the fence about it: Except the fence 😀 and other parts may be shaky. It will be my second try with this machine.
I also got things from my list of consumables from various places, which is what I also try to do at this time of the year, because 30%-50% off those can save in the long run.
Yeah man sawdust…goes everywhere! I think Dewalts dust collector is the worst I’ve experienced. It catches maybe 1/64 of the dust maybe. Luckily I work in unfinished houses but I’m not the contractor who leaves a Mess so I’ll have to clean it up at one point. I’m intrigued by this hack you speak of?! Time to hit the YT and see what I can conclude!
Here’s the one I found for Ryobi sliding saw. Cheap, easy, looks workable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xO67n_m6EA4
I’ve looked at various others and tried a few with my Hitachi chop saw. None work because of the horribly designed dust port. I’ll post a few other links in the forum, in case you’re interested. My shop is in my basement, so I hate all the dust.
I bought a cheap Veritas plane during that sale just to see what all the hype is about. Are they really worth 3x a Stanley Sweetheart/Bailey or 2x the Woodcraft knockoff?
I haven’t tested it out yet, but same, no blemishes I can notice.
I got the DeWalt impact socket set DWMT19243 for $50 off at Northern on Cyber Monday. I also got the Milwaukee screwdriver set, which is a nice upgrade from my old Craftsman set.
Deal on deals on dealss!
12” Dewalt Flexvolt sliding compound miter 2x Flexvolt battery with a ac adapter pickup after.
3 tool Milwaukee 2997-23PO Fuel baby! (octane? Chill Ridgid not that fuel…TTI?) rolling pack out, small pack out w/ foam inserts, that completes the 3 piece pack out now! Milwaukee 2x Fastback knives, got the one with the blade storage over the Home Depot deal which was sold out at every b&m so 5$ more for blade storage ??♂️ Dewalt “premium” what ever that means utility knife, Tajima Chalk Rite 2 hyped to try out Tajima they seem to get a ton of props! Milwaukee 10” die cast Torpedo level (the sexy one w/ the spinney thingy lol), Empire 48”&24” i-beam level ($20 vs Milwaukee’s cough* cough* $160 48&24”) Milwaukee fuel gen2 M12 2 tool impact/hammer kit, Milwaukee fuel gen2 7 1/4 circular saw 2x 12ah battery kit, Milwaukee Hole Dozer 14pc, Diablo Daredevil bits, Gorilla bench, HDX 2x small parts organizer, Dewalt 100pc driver/drill bits $17.99!?! (No “Flextorq”!?!??♂️) Oh and at the end I returned the Dewalt multitool I got for $99 & ordered off homedepot .com dewalt brushless drill kit w/2x 1.5ah batteries (instead of 1 battery w/ multitool kit) & free XR multitool!? (they only make an XR it seems) that kit was $139.99 so the extra 39.99 netted me another battery and a drill I’m giving to the pops bc his makita is getting a little old!? “if it still works why do I need a new one?” Bc it looks like a Decepticon from transformers 1!? I’m stepping you up to an Age if Extinction level autobot Transa-ma-former pops quit winning get with the new?! Michael Bay is the best director ever ? Love you Dad! Oh & nabbed the 12” sliding miter off eBay where CPO kept dropping the price thanksgiving eve $550 w/batteries, thanksgiving…$450!?! Ordered it at about 9:30pm Thanksgiving (22nd) woke up Saturday (24th) it was on my front step!? I mean who needs Amazons 2 day $100/year “Prime” shipping when CPO deliveres in less that 1.5 days por gratis!? At least for tools that is lol Fastest shipping I’ve ever experienced especially on a massive item like that! CPO Outlets for the win! Might be something else I bought but can’t think of atm! Glad to see most of us mad out this jolly holiday shopping season! Cop till we drop! Happy Holidays!

Ridgid impact drive/brushless hammer drill combo with extra set of 2 batteries. Menards matching rebate of 11% but they gave me a bonus 11% back on the free batteries included with the deal, so it was 11% back from $300 but only paid $199 out the door. Bonuuus!!!
I bought the Freak/Hammer Drill kit with the free tool from Lowes. I have had my eye on the free SDS Rotary hammer and for the price of it I got replacement daily use tools as well. I was very surprised the charger is the dual voltage one for both 18v and 12v. Plus the 2 core 4aH batteries. Very pleased with that purchase so far.
I got some snap on stuff. A mini pick set, a 1/4” drive wobble plus extension set, and 1/4” drive hex sockets. 50% off.
Ok, ok, I bought it through Snap Ons student program. Every time I buy from there it’s like cyber Monday.
The Dewalt DCK483D2 brushless cordless power tool combo kit.
My faithful 12V, DW953 Type 3 has stopped speaking to me.
Dewalt 20v max 5.0 battery x2 with charger for $105 (Thanks Stuart for post), Dewalt 20v brushless leaf blower with 5.0 battery kit for $160, Ingersoll Rand right angle die grinder for $35 (Thanks Stuart for post), 2″ roloc kit for the grinder $21.
Home Depot: Dewalt 10 compartment organizer for $10, Milwaukee 8pc magnetic tip screwdriver set for $20, Milwaukee fastback set with blades for $15, Diablo 6 1/2 inch circular saw blades for $10, Milwaukee shockwave metal drill bit set for $20.
Probably more until New Years, haha
The Dewalt DCK483D2 brushless cordless power tool combo kit.
My faithful DW953 Type 3 has stopped speaking to me after it saw the yellow box come in the shop.
I was on the road, and had my eye on a couple packout cases online, but the pieces I wanted had no promo.
Home Depot would not allow online orders of promo’d ridgid tool boxes.
Did manage to snag a ridgid storage set in store.
Skipped looking at anything else really. Already have plenty of tools. Can’t buy more base kits to get other tools at discount or free.
Some of the tools I might like to upgrade, had no promo.
I bought the Gedore pliers wrench and Knipex cobras from KC tools, a small Craftsman bit driver, the better VIM hbr3 mini bit driver, a no name bit driver, a husky wood top tool cabinet and the 12V Hitachi drill + impact driver combo.
I went a bit nuts because I’m switching my everyday cordless from Ryobi one+ and Ridgid 12v over to m12, moving from bags and tubs to tstak, and have been selling on Craigslist enough to feel like I should just grab deals when I see and can afford them.
M12 5 tool Home Depot DOD kit with ratchet
M12 drill and OMT kit from HD
M12 fuel impact and hammer drill from ACME (would have saved$30 if I’d returned it and bought at home Depot instead but I’d already put some miles on it when that sale went live)
Tstak and Craftsman versastak on sales from ACME and Lowe’s– a couple drawer units, 4 open totes, 3 suitcases, a parts organizer, a tall box and a wheeled box
M12 2401-22 I grabbed a couple before they ran out
And a couple pricing errors: Ryobi drill bit cases that were $4.88 for black Friday they briefly had at $3 so I bought 20, and the recent DeWalt tough system parts organizer which they briefly put at $18 so I got 4. M12 fuel saw at ACME briefly had the wrong promo pack on their online store and they honored that too.
So… Yeah I better get a few more of these sold pretty quick! My big Home Depot order just arrived today so I’m a little buried.
I was tracking toolguyd and slick deals pretty aggressively.
I picked up the Milwaukee m12 still paclout combo from Acme for $29 and regret not buying 2 before the price was “fixed”. I also picked up the Gedore 10in pliers wrench and NWS combo pliers with a Wera 5.5mm socket to get free shipping.
I picked up the Gedore 10″ and them I rounded out my order with the Wiha SAE MagicRing Ergostar hex wrenches to get the +$50 free shipping. I have the Metric set and have been waiting for the right opportunity to buy the SAE set.
I also picked up a Wera Zyclops 1/4″ ratchet set and IR right angle die grinder. I love both of them. I’ve already used the die grinder and it is sweet. I couldn’t run my old die grinder continuously off my 20 gallon compressor because it used too much air. The IR runs just fine with no power loss.
I believe the only thing I ended up buying was the new craftsman pancake compressor for $100 at lowes
But as a side note ace has a couple of local ads that started the 28th I was noticing online with there November red hot buys still going on and there was a lot of Irwin bar clamps on sale and some spring clamps as well really good deals too since I don’t have any bar clamps and I decided it would be a good time to go down and pick up some they had on sale well none of them were on sale ended up paying full price for all the clamps and was very unhappy cause I don’t have $85 to spend on clamps right now especially when the “sale” price with card should have cost $30 so I guess what I’m saying is be very careful when buying items on sale at ace this has happened to be b4
I picked up the M12 right angle impact (bare tool) for $75 from ToolUp. Free shipping plus $25 off $100. My girlfriend also got me something for my birthday from the KC Tool sale, but I won’t know what for a few weeks.
Got a Vitamix for my wife for $93 on amazon (girls have power tools too). Got my brother the Dewalt 20v chainsaw for $75 (threw in two 4ah batteries), bought knives, levels, spade bits, straps, bits etc. for local volunteers, friends and family. Bought a couple gorilla benches ($25) because every year one group of volunteers, or another, winds up taking off with them. Bought the Milwaukee infrared imager for $147, the jawhorse sheetmaster for $104 and the kreg jig organizer for $18. Also bought the flexvolt chainsaw kit for $269. All these prices include the tax and shipping. (We’re a non-profit so I don’t have to pay tax, which is nice at HD or Lowe’s)
I never go into debt to buy tools but save my money and wait patiently for good deals when I want something.
You’re a big part of that Stuart, I appreciate your research and heads up so guys like me can get a good deal.
Bravo and encore!
None. The shipping on kc tool just made it unattractive for oversea buyer.
I picked up the 3 piece packout system with some extra organizers. Some heated gear and m12 fuel kit. Gonna pick up a makita brushless grinder too with the 25 off coupon. Also picked up some shockwave bit sets and the holedozer kit from h.d. I’m sure there is more but that’s what comes to mind at the moment.
I bought 2 cheap miter saw stands for $20 each from menards.
That’s it as far as tools go.
TVs on the other hand…..
This year was not near as big a haul as I had last year. I had plans to buy a big ticket item from Acme Tools but with so many restrictions this year I wasn’t able to get what I wanted. I spent over $400 at HD last year on Black Friday and even more at Acme Tools but this year only about $150 total.
*Bosch 120 ft laser measurer from Amazon.
*Bosch 30 ft laser level from Home Depot
*Milwaukee 17 pc hole saw kit from Home Depot
Way too much stuff. The Ridgid Brushless drill/impact kit chose the 1/2 impact as my free tool. A Ridgid 18v 18ga brad nailer, Ridgid Table saw with the wheeled cart, ChannelLock set with the bottle opener, Craftsman Brushless Drill, a Craftsman bit box, Craftsman 3/8 Ratchet, Craftsman Bluetooth Speaker Craftsman T Shirt and a Porter Cable 6gal pancake compressor… Mostly as gifts, some for me.
I got the Makita 3 piece brushless combo kit with 2 free tools deal from Home Depot. I opted to the the cordless router and the cordless grinder as my add-on items.
This will allow me to settle in on one 18v platform for batteries and tools and unload the other mish mash of tools that started with.
I picked up the Wera Tool -Check Plus in mertric to carry on my motorcycle from KC Tools. I thought it needed a longer screwdriver so I bought a 6” magnetic bit holder by Irwin that fits under the belt clip like it was made for it. I love this website my bank account doesn’t.
I had a air compressor in my cart at Acme and tried for a few hours to checkout and was not able to. I sent Acme a email the next day and never got a response.
That might be an interesting thread of its own: “What items did you try to buy but could not?”
I tried to get some router bits to go along with a router I purchased, but after dealing with online shopping car issues and weird web page issues, I ended up just giving up. Sometimes it is worth paying a little extra via amazon for a simpler checkout procedure, or going to a store if they have what you need nearby. It seems many smaller shops just seem to have underpowered or just plain wonky web shopping systems.
I wanted the Empire 48”&24” levels at HD, but went after BF and they were gone! They must have not had that many in store.
Two led flip lights, and a free power strip and 20% off coupon for 3 putty knives all for under 8 dollars at hft.
Just curious, which of the led flip light did you buy?
I didn’t buy a lot of things. I did purchase two dashcam and a few tstak single drawer and totes.
I also purchased two of the 360 lumen folding worklight from Harborfreight. It come as a pleasant surprise that the rechargeable battery is removable standard 18650 battery. This is huge to me because I already have a nice charger and several flashlight on the same battery platform.
