I thought the forum would be a good place to mention sales that don’t get a lot of advertising, or maybe are in-store, and not widely advertised. Anyway, here is my latest find:
I was at my local Ace Hardware yesterday, and they had some items in a bin that were marked half price of latest sale price. The selection wasn’t that great, but they did have a couple metric 3/8 socket and combo wrench sets, and a few 3/8 ratchets, those new ones that work kind of like a Yankee Screwdriver to speed drive the socket.
In addition, they also had a couple different impact driver bit sets, one was a Craftsman, the other a DeWalt, I think they were $12 and $15, respectively.
The $15 or $16 DeWalt set included their flex impact bit driver (over $10 by itself in the same store), and a 3/8 square drive adapter with 4 deep well 3/8 impact sockets, along with the usual driver bits.
The $12-$13 Craftsman set had Torx bits (which the DW set didn’t) along with both a 1/4 and 3/8 square adapter, and an index box that I much prefer over the DW one, once I got on to how it works.
Everything in the clearance bin looks like it is odds and ends of leftover tools from their holiday sales, and there weren’t many of any one thing.
