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.

  • 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.

Home Depot and Lowe s have military discount. For Home Depot you show your military ID. They don t offer military discounts for online or special order purchases. For Lowe s you need to setup a web account and they have an online verification process. Once verified you give them your phone number in the checkout line and they apply the discount. I ve not tried ordering from Lowe s online but I would assume the discount would work.

It does Wayne. I helped my grandfather get his set up. You just sign into your MyLowes account that you used when you went through the verification process and order from there. The discount will be automatically applied.
I m not seeing any of the service connected limitations here in California. Interesting.

Not here in VA either. They do make you show proof every time but they give the discount to any active duty or service veterans.

You sure? I didn't try it but it says "... when you buy within the latest version of the eBay mobile app for ios or Android"
Snatched it right off my watchlist Wayne! No worries. Even with 15% off, it was out of my range ;-)
Yep. One of them. There are still 2 more listed but you got the most affordable one.
The $189 doesn't start until Friday morning Nathan.
HDPE is cheaper than UHMW if you just need a slick plastic. It's not the same but depending on your use, might be a cheaper substitute. Ebay is usually where I find the best prices on that type of stock.
UHMW is more stable, heavier, more abrasive resistant and IIRC, has a higher melting point. The biggest advantage is probably flatness when it comes to jigs. However, I think HDPE is good enough for most any woodworking jig unless it's subject to a whole lot of wear.
This is only good for a couple more hours but this Ebay BIN is a good price for a 18 inch Starrett combination square if anyone's in the market.
Good, glad somebody here snagged it :)
I agree Matt, 18" is as long as I need. A framing square will work for anything longer. Honestly, I rarely even use the 18", twelve is almost always sufficient.
Let us know how that RZ mask is Nathan. I've eyeballed it a few times because it's so lightweight. I just find it hard to believe it'll effectively replace my respirator.
For my bearded brothers, Vasoline. Put it in your beard/mustache in the area that your respirator seals and it will improve the seal. I've tried it and it works. Also, it feels gross and it's a pain so I don't do it every time. Okay, I only did it once. But, it did work ;-)

Edit: Todd, any reason to think that powered respirator will be more effective with facial hair?
Hopefully he re-homed all the baby birds first.
Well, I had to download it just because I want to see what bull bangin' has to do with workbenches…

Lesson learned, when your god demands a bull, give him a bull, or he will give you a bull.

I always stock up on these casters when they go on sale. I didn't notice it online but saw it in the store last night. They are excellent casters and can't be touched for $30 IMO. I have them on my jointer, router table, fliptop cart with planer and sander, belt and bench grinder cart, table saw stand and even my lumber storage cart (although I may be pushing their limits on that one…). The double locking mechanism works the way it should and has never failed on me.
