  1. Who else has a tool problem?

    I don't mind lending hand tools...that's why I keep HF screwdrivers and pliers at the shop.
  2. What tools did you buy today?

    I'm starting to scrape the bottom, there isn't much in the under $30 ship to store or in-store pickup I can buy...or the $30-45 shipping range. Not too much over $45 either. I had three Wera screwdriver sets at one point, gave one away. The $5 off are hard for me to do because there isn't much left locally. I normally end up with twist ties or another magnetizer/demagnetizer.

    Gifts from Sears this week:
  4. Forum issues

    I don't know where it would be but if you browse https://invisioncommunity.com/ there should be some tips and tricks there, some features may not be enabled here.
  5. Rename forum section

    Sounds great to me! The new website design is like a giveaway to everyone haha
  6. Messed up marketing

    Missed the part about them selling through Sears not Sears as a retailer. Marketplaces offer a wider audience, remember, anything over wholesale is profit. Sometimes they'll also want to test the waters of any given online marketplace, mostly when they're sitting on excess inventory. Some marketplaces offer incentives for companies to offer sales in forms of advertising...probably not the case here. You see it sometimes when CPO or whomever is on eBay's Daily Deals. Some companies also just have terrible online stores, which may be a different division or simply not be the focus of their marketing/sales departments. They keep the site up with whatever pricing, if a sale comes through, great...there is little upkeep needed, AND it sets the MSRP(Because it's through their official site). Which protects smaller distributors without having a MAP agreement for distributors. The last thing any company wants to see is an item being sold direct cheaper than they can sell it, that's a quick way to lose your distribution.

  8. What tools did you buy today?

    Check eBay before buying, I got this for more than 50% off. There are soo many swiss army knives that the resell value isn't that great, mine looks and feels brand new or I wouldn't have bought it. There are two different pen types, a "large" one and a short one...not counting the Swisscard with is a different pen type but similar length as the large. The large one comes out of the 91mm knives. The short one, which I have is small and pretty uncomfortable but works fine for signing and getting a phone number. https://youtu.be/Hc1NCX_iTiQ?t=56s This is the large one: https://youtu.be/nxiLuRif80w?t=3m9s More reasonably useful knife with the large pen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqjz77833ck

    I really like seeing (nearly) everyone get something.
  10. Worst Milwaukee Tool

    The brushed m12 is really good for more precise cuts on PVC or softer woods because it's soo small and lightweight. Before I had my hole saw kit I made a couple PVC drill holsters for work's main work bench...I cut out the circular drill-grip slot with the m12 hackzall. It was easier to use than a jigsaw because the jigsaw kept tipping to the side.
  11. What tools did you buy today?

    I haven't had a swiss army knife since I was a kid. Earlier this year I learned that some of them have pens and it immediately went on the list! I did a lot of research on before settling on this one. I hate having a lot in my pockets, I'm super minimalist on keys and what's in my wallet and one reason why I still have an iPhone 5(because it's small).
  12. Lowe's deals permathread

    Don't forget to check your local Lowe's (online) for low stock of those Skil router bits sets (15 and 30 piece sets). Lower inventory should be cheaper clearance pricing. I personally like my Skil sets, they do the business.
  13. kc tool co deal of the day

    This thread is really for KC tool (the retailer) only. I wouldn't mind if you started a thread for Sortimo.
  14. Devil weed...

    Also known as the devil's weed haha

    My m12 Fuel drill is more powerful and faster than the shop's CORDED drill, LOL.
