If you've been thinking of upgrading your workshop's tool selection, you need to see Amazon's Countdown to Black Friday deals. Whatever brand you’re looking for, Amazon is offering bargain prices on a wide variety of power and hand tools for a limited time. And you can never have too many tools. A few of the best that caught our eye:
As long as the items in your order are shipped from and sold by Amazon, the retailer is knocking $25 off your tab at checkout. The sale includes over 3600 items, so whatever you’re looking for, you should be able to find it.
Our Pick: If you’re in the market for a circular saw, the Makita 5007MGA is a nice buy at $142.99 after the discount. One member of the Smart Shopping Team is kicking himself for spending much more on it at a hardware store two weeks ago.
Amazon is offering a similar deal on select Bosch cordless tools, with similarly great options.
Our Pick: If you are considering upgrading your drill, the Bosch CLPK27-120 set is a handy choice to have around the house and a great buy at $134 after the discount. It includes a 12-volt drill/driver, an impact driver, two batteries, and a case. If you’re asking yourself, “Do I really need an impact driver?” let us assure you the answer is yes. We own this 12V Bosch model, and although it’s lightweight and easy on the hands, it makes driving screws a breeze compared to a regular drill/driver.
Whether you’re cutting, grinding, polishing, or engraving, a Dremel rotary tool can be a godsend as you try to finish a project.
Our Pick: With the Dremel 4000 down to $79.99 with a case, four attachments, and 34 accessories, you can get a solid start on exploring the wonderful world of rotary tools.
Amazon is also cutting prices on nearly 3300 Dewalt products, a wide variety of Irwin tools (some great deals on pliers here), and dozens of Black+Decker items. You're sure to find something that needs to be in your tool chest.
