What tools did you buy today?

6,288 posts in this topic

Instead of posting threads every time we buy something awesome for ourselves why not have it here?

So to start off I got tired of my average ryobi jig saw and picked up a Bosch js572ebl from HD. With purchases over 125 you get 25 off. For 250 I got the saw kit with the L-boxx 2. Can't wait to outfit to work!

No tools, but I did buy Star Wars Ep 4.5 and 6 to get my daughter up to speed before episode 7 comes out.

Great jigsaw Jimbo!

I bought a mobile base for my Rikon 10-325 and a some more Bessey K Body clamps.

And.......The Ultimate Dust Deputy for the Festool CT Dust Collectors. I should hopefully have it Wednesday and can assemble it that day. It comes with a systainer base to lock onto my Midi. Pretty stoked.

You know Jimbo, that Bosch is one of the top line jig saws and I ended up getting the Carvex. I will say, had I not had the DC unit I may have gone with the Bosch. That really is a great jigsaw.

Yea I did some research and looked at a Carvex but I don't know if my finances can handle a festool yet because one just won't be enough lol, but I like a lot of the features in the Bosch, so I'll treat it good.

Nice set there.  Every time I look at dremel bits I want to buy some, but remember I already have pretty much every bit they make.  Those little diamond points can take care of some tough problems.

Came close to buying one of the $100 M18 impact driver kits or a 2763 bare tool, but I just can't bring myself to buy anything for mysel this time of year. I ended up with a couple of LED replacement bulbs for the wall lights in the stairs. Yay.

You already have the 3/8 m18 fuel don't you? If you do I would highly recommend the 2763. I've had mine for about a month and I still smile every time I use it.

Nice buy, at the FIre a department we use Husqavarna saws. Funny we call them either a K12 or a Partners saw even though those are other brands. Really awesome saw but those things are beasts.

Yup. Just a bad time of the year for buying new toys for myself. I'll eventually get one, and a 2655b, just not right now.

I wanted to get a couple batteries for my 18v Ridgid stuff (fan, radio, drills, drivers, circ saw, recipe saw) and for $50 more than I was going to spend I upgraded a couple of my collection and I got this Brushless set:

Already used the compact drill, very nice.

It included the stubby with multiple bits and the ratcheting full size for $14.

How are they? I walk past them and think about them every time I run in there
