i think they might still be having it today if you catch this in time... i get a little crazy when tool shopping. i picked up 2 4-drawer tool benches w/ metal tops and backwalls for $170 each, one for work and one for home. i put together one and it's missing a drawer slide, gotta go back to sears and order one. otherwise it's a cool bench. gonna use it to store big tools, jackstands, and hang up my welding mask and whatnot.


...also picked up a 19.2v 1/2" drill, it came with a cordless screwdriver and stud finder for $99.


and 7pc sets of ratcheting wrenches were only $44, so i picked up a standard set and a metric set


picked up a new 11pc set of standard 6pt wrenches for home, replaced my generic set


and a new pair of mechanic's gloves (not on sale but i needed 'em)


also went to harbor freight and got 2 3pc sets of welding clamps (like vise grip clamps) for $6.99! 3 pack of welding gloves, 2.5lb and 4lb mini sledge hammers, 4pc pry bar set, new angle grinder, butane torch, and automatic wire strippers all for like $80. spent like $700+ but it was worth it. gotta go put the other bench together.

damn its x-mass for you! Are those the ratcheting ones or the reversable ratcheting ones? I should have a metric set of the reversable ones waiting for me when I get home, need to get a set of SAE ones.

Sweeeet. If there is one thing i've learned this summer, its that having the right tools to do things is sooo important. Makes so many tasks so much easier. Theres a special tool even to remove the clip on a GM window crank....

sounds like some pretty nice tools, that's a great deal on that drill.
it's for work, i have a 14.4v craftsman but it wasn't up to the task of drilling steel and aluminum and the battery didn't last very long, and it was only 3/8, so i brought it home for around the house.

they're not reversible, no offset either so i just flip them over. haven't tried them yet. i like the polished flex-head gearwrenches but they're too expensive.

and i still don't have a 13/16, dammit. i have like 85 wrenches and no 13/16, i hate buying hand tools one at a time. back to sears...
