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.

Your favorite or most useful tool.
Amazon "Just Launched" sellers with very low prices (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.

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.
Thanks for the confirmation Ken. I tend to buy more from Home Depot than Lowes. My powered hand tools are almost all Milwaukee.
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 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
I'm not seeing any of the service connected limitations here in California. Interesting.
I have a jawhorse too. I think this is a jawstand.
Curious reasons for 2 jawhorses or why to get a jawstand if I have a jawhorse… in other words give me excuses for more tool acquisition!

I have two jawhorses. They are well made. This is a great buy if you are in the market for such things. Almost makes me wish I were.

I have two of each. Jaw stands for support of work pieces in the same way you would use a roller stand. They don't have the same kind of clamping power that a Jawhorse has. I use Jaw horse for securing work for cutting or other work and a portable stands for tools. In this case a metal working bandsaw. I also have a mechanic's vise I can mount in a Jawhorse. I have two models of Jawhorses. One model has a larger holding capability and will hold a full sheet of plywood.

Rockwell has a clearance store in eBay. This seems to be the best place to buy their tools from a pricing perspective. Also, if you are not in a hurry, you can stack the 8 or 10% eBay bucks promotion with your purchase.

You know what I have a hard time finding is the accessories for the Jawhorse if it s available at all and then at a good price.

I think they actually stopped making them. I see them from time to time on Craigslist. I specifically wanted to check out their welding attachment.
I was tracking that one too.
I just used it on iOS. I'm the proud new owner of a Millers Falls skew block plane.
Snatched it right off my watchlist Wayne! No worries. Even with 15% off, it was out of my range ;-)

The 07?
I like the pictures of the Home Depot casters. I'll have to check them out. I've been using some from Harbor Freight for projects. Another nice thing about Home Depot is the 10% military discount if you're eligible.
Gearwrench is good stuff if you need wrenches.
