A hot deal is a significant discount (including shipping) on DIY or workshop related tools, machines, clothing, books, lumber, or general interest items. Use your discretion. If you think we would be interested, post it. Please include a link, if online, a description, and the price. The discount amount in % or $$ is appreciated but not required.

  • eBay Buy It Now (BIN)
  • Amazon sales, Deal of the Day (DOTD)
  • Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD)
  • Sales, Coupons, Coupon Codes
  • Lowes/HD closeouts
  • Craigslist finds
  • Black Friday

NOT hot deals:
20% off HF coupon, because they are available all the time.
Cheaply made tools.
eBay auctions, because we don't know the final price until the auction ends.
Your favorite or most useful tool.
Amazon "Just Launched" sellers with very low prices (scammer)
Amazon sellers that ask you to email first (scammer)

  • What is an Amazon Warehouse Deal? It is an item with damaged packaging or the item itself may be damaged. It could have been dropped off a truck, punched with a fork truck, opened for a photograph, or a customer return. They are sold as used and the manufacturer warranty may be void. Most of the AWD I've bought were only damaged packaging but you are taking a risk. Note: just because they are sold as "used" does not mean they are actually used. Some customers scam Amazon by returning junk instead of the real product and Amazon may ship that wrong item to you.

  • Amazon '2 Left' Deals Occasionally there will be a super low price on a new item that says "Only 2 left in stock". Buy one and the last one jumps back to full price or you can buy both at the reduced price. For example you might see a $50 widget for $8, 2 Left. If you buy one, the last one jumps back to $50, or you can buy both for $8 each ($16 total).

  • Once in a great while there will be "1 left" and Amazon decides they want it gone and it will drop in price until someone buys it.

eBay's got another 10% ebay bucks deal going. I've been holding out for another discount coupon to come along - need an impact wrench - but haven't seen one in a while. I wonder if they've been phased out…
What kind of wrench?

I'm looking for the Dewalt DCF899B (or some packaged variant thereof). Best I'm finding is $185.
I m not seeing anything better at my normal spots. Are there any issues buying on eBay? E.g. Will Dewalt stand by the product if there is an issue.

I m on the Milwaukee platform. I just got the M12 1/2" wrench. Pretty fun little tool

No problem, just hoping to get it with a 10-15% discount. Ebay's been fine when it comes to purchasing tools - I've only bought new ones from them. If I didn't already have a full DW setup, Milwaukee would've been my first choice. That's a topic for a different thread though.
I ve had it for about 2 months now and so far so good. The only problem I have had is with the build plate but nothing serious, though I am thinking about getting a glass one. The most complex thing that I have printed so far, mostly just to see if I could, is a cyclone for the shop vac. I printed it in 2 parts to get a little extra height (13"). It literally took 2 full days to print. I am running mine using the mini SD card (that came with it) rather than using the PC to feed the gcode. I had a power outage in the middle of printing the cyclone and it was able to resume right where it left off.

EDIT: one of these days I am either going to create a blog about it or start a forum topic related to 3D-printing for the workshop to see what others are doing with them.

Please do.

I've made a couple jigs, clamps, etc. as well. Have a running list of woodworking things to 3DP. If you're worried about bed issues, I'd recommend a PEI sheet over glass - eliminates the need to put down any glue, tape, secret sauce, etc.
