What tools did you buy today?

Recommended Posts

Bought the DCS577 for $169 bare on toolup from their cyber monday part two deals. I have never bought from them before but I thought I would give them a try. They also have the flex 2/6 batteries for around $79. I did not buy though. Some decent deals still going on. https://www.toolup.com/promotions/cyber-monday-part-2

My veritas low angle smoother came in today. It's supposed to be a blemished plane. I can't find any sort of blemish on it. Also got some tool wax and a 14 degree guide. b1b58a906c104c5179b76c47d6baf545.jpga6022916641f0d5c26c289c8b8d53a57.jpg869c19264fbf31b9be95eea06d2f91cf.jpgab47404dddce4542f0328e6b0d2ffd37.jpg9cf5b5621c7f427c883da27d772d10d9.jpg

@ChrisK how does the Flexiclick compare to your Festool counterparts?

I cannot say too much here except...

My TXS feels super refined. Both are brushed motors. The grip on my TXS is much slimmer and the tool is very compact. The Festool TXS and CXS do NOT have an offset chuck. The Bosch and the Milwaukee (NAINA) have an offset chuck. The reason I got the Bosch is because of that chuck. Super easy to slide a tool into a narrow spot and get a screw in up close to the bottom of a counter top. I love that.

 

I have the Fuel gen 2 M12 hammer and like that, the Bosch uses a pod style pack, not a huge fan because it really hams up the grip but I love Bosch tools. 

 

I am toying with selling my TXS but only because of that offset chuck. They make it for their other drills don’t know why my TXS doesn’t have one.

Just Ordered a SUNEX 2568 SAE master impact set,  EBAY has them for $138 never seen them lower so i ordered it.  I have never bought any SUNEX but they have great reviews all over the net  so i figured why not seems like the best deal for a CR-MO master set

Some twenty years ago I bought a set of Sunex metric deep well sockets to complement the Snap-On SAE set I already owned.  The finish wasn't quite as good as the SO but they've held up every bit as well otherwise.

I kind of splurged yesterday.  Found the DeWalt inflator at a local Home Depot but the display was all that was left.  The tool section guy offered to knock 10% off it and I stacked my military discount to bring the price down to $81.  Amazon has it for $79 right now, but the display still had a DCB201 battery on it, increasing the value of the deal.

 

Afterward, I stopped by another HD and found the M12 display with a $69 price tag still showing for the 2-pack 3.0 Ah batteries.  One pack was left, which rang up at $89 (the price I've seen them elsewhere for the past week or two, despite the $69 sticker showing the sale going through early January [if I'm reading it correctly]).  I also bought the M12 bandsaw to take advantage of the free 2.0 Ah battery promo and I'm sorely tempted to get the M12 Fuel 1/2" ratchet soon to add to the truck kit.

Has anyone tried out the newest Milwaukee tool?  I recently purchased this 3" cut off tool.  I can honestly say that I use it for all kinds of projects!

I've looked a little bit but haven't found out for sure, but is there blades for cutting wood for this?
Sorry to pig back on your post without an answer, but I haven't used this yet, but will be getting here in the not to distant future.

Since buying my DeWalt inflator I've found more than a few in other stores.  It seems the battery is included (I thought it was just for the demo), but I still feel as though the deal was decent.

 

Anyway, I picked up the M12 Fuel 1/2" ratchet with free battery and the Toughshell jacket Sunday, and just picked up the heated hoodie today.  While I don't have any higher capacity batteries, this gives me three 1.5 Ah, five 2.0 Ah batteries, and the two 3.0 Ah packs I picked up Saturday.  M12 has a bunch of decent tools but for now I think I'm done with the exception of a small light.  I have the non-Fuel drill and impact driver, 3/8" ratchet, inflator, soldering iron, and the above-mentioned recently acquired tools.

Picked up some Yost parallel clamps. I have some bessys and jets. I rank this with the jets. The heads don't slide down like the older bessys. The handle turns to get more clamping pressure. c8eb20cec3592437f3e064e8e30a8222.jpg4f2c3e47b197d48eeccb162a12493d91.jpga81c6949b9387e8a5a012e3c6abdceea.jpg
