Black friday tool sales


I'm already setting a few dollars a week aside for Black Friday tool sales. It's one of the highlights of my year. Earlier that week, I'll go thru the web sites for Home Depot, Lowe's, Tractor Supply, Ace Hardware, True Value Hardware, and Sears and make lists of what will be on sale that I can use. Please add or subtract what ever stores are or are not in your area. Last year I got two 4 foot Werner 250 lb rated fiberglass step ladders for $17 each (normal retail around $40 or more). A couple of years back, I got a 14 gallon wet/dry Shop-Vac for $29, and a Mr. Heater 9000 btu propane space heater for $70 (normal retail around $100). That heater was a wonderful thing to have during last year's hurricane Sandy that blacked out large hunks of the east coast, kept my mom warm for 2 days. I've also scored huge discounts on industrial shelving, drill bits, Plumb hammers, tape measures, etc. I mention all of this so you guys can do a rough inventory of what you need in tools, hardware, home improvement, paint, etc, and save some rightious money if you can wait until late November. Also a great time to Christmas shop for other guys/girls that need, like and use tools. Plus it keeps me away from the Mega-Maul.

You're a brave man, Joe, I don't even make a beer run on Black Friday - - - down here in Yuppieville you are taking your life in your own hands by being on the road and especially if you dare go into a major Retail store the day or weekend after Turkey Day. These people are maniacs and will kill and maim for a $3 item not to mention camping out on the sidewalks so they will be first in line.nobiggrin

Maybe I'm lucky in that the stores I go to are not close to the "real" shopping malls.

The only time I braved that day I went to Menard's for an air nailer. Since then, I've seen the same nailer on sale for "only" twice what I paid. We won't even talk about standard retail.

I only went that time because I was at work anyway, but man, it was a good deal! I've used the crap out of that nailer.

Ok, I know it was from Menard's, I think it was this one:

www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/power-tools/compressors-and-pneumatic-tools/nailers-staplers/surebonder-offset-round-clipped-head-3-1-2-framing-nailer/p-1796004-c-12912.htm

A Surebonder, I see it's an even $99 now, I've seen it for more, I paid $50. In the hands of a professional carpenter, he'd probably wear it out in a month, but, I oil the crap out of all my air tools, and it serves me just fine in those projects that take a day, or a week, then it lays in the drawer for 7 months waiting for the next project.

Oh, and even though it's an inexpensive brand, it'll shoot right through 2 of the little woman's fingers before you can say "****!" Now I work alone when I use it. Probably a safe bet for anyone when I'm working on anything with anything. Me? I have an emergency room file to rival Tim Tailors. Even I'm not safe!
