Plus, right now they have further 10% off prices.

They are an American website, so take into account the exchange rate and shipping costs. So many cool tools you cannot get here in Canada.


Also, from their Amazon site..........

http://www.amazon.com/Wera-050510240...0f3da95c6c2094

Below cost!

I'm looking for a tool cabinet that I can put my 4 drawer tool chest on top.
Post up the deals. Prefer red colour. Looking buy it some time in December.

I'm waiting for this to go on sale, but I doubt it'll go any lower, since it's a special buy item.

Milwaukee 60 in. 11-Drawer and 1-Door 22 in. D Mobile Workbench with Adjustable-Height, Sliding Pegboard Back Wall, Red and Black-48-22-8560 - The Home Depot

Actually, the link above is the US Home Depot site. They sell the same item up here in Canada for nearly the same price. Not 100% sure, but if that's the case, it's a helluva deal. Put it on the Home Depot no interest payment plan so it doesn't hurt as much, lol. That's what I did with my Milwaukee cabinet and chest combo.



Update!

Just saw a half dozen of them at the Henning Drive location. $798.00. Damn, they're nice. Over 400 lbs.

That looks really nice! Way bigger than what I'm looking for. My chest is only 26x18 so hoping to find a cabinet around that size.

EDIT: Gonna rephrase my question after some research.

Can anyone recommend a high quality set of socket wrenches with high tooth count that hopefully comes with lifetime warranty? (from my research snap on does not have lifetime warranty for home users)

Just got the Milwaukee workbench........... dayum, it's beautiful. I feel like Negan after quenching Lucille's thirst.

This thing is worth every penny.............

Still putting it together and filling it up.......... gonna look grand next to the matching rolling cabinet and tool chest.


You only die once, so I'm treating myself to stuff that brings me joy........ and fuck the grandchildren's inheritance.

After I clean up the total mess of a garage. Just ask flip. From floor to ceiling of tools, equipment, and junk. I play "Traffic", the app game, just to get at stuff. Everything is on wheels, Lol.

Okay.......... here are some pics of the Milwaukee Tool Cabinet/Chest and Workbench in my very, very messy garage. This is just some of the tools. Larger items, like drill press, compound mitre saw, table saw, band saw, etc. are in the covered car hauler and trailer........ oh, and two garden sheds, which are also full of tools. I just have too many things. I'm a hopeless hoarder. I'm in the process of moving things around. Just too damn cold right now............

And yes, I am a Milwaukee fanboi.

Spoiler!

Anyone have recommendations for a good impact driver? Was looking at dewalt and Milwaukee but not too sure what’s the best for my money. Looking to use it for casual work around house and cars.

I bought the new style Dewalt DCF899 impact since I already had a cordless drill within the Dewalt family that I was really happy with. I had a comparable Milwaukee impact before that was stolen and this impact at ~$200 less appears to not give anything up to it.

Big fan and highly recommended.

Yup, I love mine.

Mindbomber, I used my Home Depot 18 month interest free deal to get all three pieces. Workbench, cabinet and chest. Compared to all the others out there, the Milwaukee is, by far, the most robust.

If you are looking for lighting solutions, Home Depot has the Milwaukee Tru View tripod light on sale. Probably a one time buy sort of thing.........

Regular $329.00 on sale for $198.00.

Today, the same light was price tagged at $82.00. I talked to the girl who was taking the price tags off and she told me that it is most likely an error made at head office. She said if you’re going to get one, to get it within the hour. I went to customer service with a label she missed and got my money back on the one I bought a couple of days ago. When I’m working on the cars in the backyard at night, this light will be perfect. Neighbours might not like it, but whatever. It’s not like noisy pie plates, gulolol.

Damn, need to log in more often. I would have taken 5 of that light for $82.

I’m looking at buying a ball joint press. The OTC, Magnum, Powerfist, etc. all look identical to me. The only difference i see is the number of adapters. Does anyone else have an experience that differs? I wish I could justify the snap on.

Good deal on 3-ton jack, creeper and jackstands.

Worth it for the jack alone.

That's a good deal for that setup. If buy one, can you tell me the lift range of it? (not listed on the site, and Home Depot is an hour drive for me)

3-ton jacks sold at Can-Tire and similar used to have a total lift height of about 23-24", but now a lot of them only go to 18.25". If the lower height works for you, it's no problem...I need 22" to pull the Rally Bug motor.

Dave, believe it is 5.5-18.5 as per the USA HD site: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-3-...0107/204617108
