It's maybe stupid, but I feel I have more tools for the money ...compared to the Ridgid set for the same price but only with the drill and the impact drive

I will buy the Ryobi impact drive when I will need it.....
Why would anyone think you are stupid? If you think these tools will work for you and I see absolutely no reason why they will not, then it is a good deal and you should be happy with it. That looks like a great starter kit. New tools are a reason to celebrate, go forth and multiply, never mind that's something else, go forth and build something.

To confuse things.....

Start looking for a shop vac......I like the Rigid one....make sure it has the 2 1/2" hose....the smaller hoses get clogged up too easy.

With a new house....a shop vac is going to be one of your most important tools.

Oh, we are going to have so much fun helping you spend your money....

I agree a shop van is an often overlooked but essential tool I have a ridgid but it has a 1 7/8" hose. I have 2 sears (sorry craftsman) i6 gallon wet/dry. I have had them for many years and they have been real work horses. But no matter what brand you choose go with a wet/dry because you never know when something is going to plug up or overflow.

Now that you bring it up.....you really need two....

Large one....say 10 gallon....and then a small portable one, like 1-2 gallons....I use the small one a lot up in the attic....

My wife likes the small one for the kids area in the attic of the garage....

Arghhh.........i am sure you will be full of good suggestions to spend extra money
Talking about shop vac, i saw one at Costco: it is a Stanley, but the price (~$33.00) make me believe isn't a good shop vac...Am I wrong?
And I will also need a ladder...!!!


About the Ryobi tool set, the guy at Home Depot told me to get a Moving coupon from Lowes and they will honor it

Some Home Depot stores will accept 20% off Harbour Freight coupon for power tools. You can find them in your weekly ads or back of Popular Mechanic/Science magazines.

Go to any post office and ask for a moving kit it contains a 10% off coupon for Lowe's but HD will honer it. At my post office now if you walk in and ask for a moving kit they will ask you if you just want the coupon, and you can go back tomorrow and get another one.
About the stanley vac I never used one so I would be hesitant to say.
And for the ladder I assume you mean step ladder, if so I would watch for a sale and get a fiberglass one. Yes they are a little more but the advantages are worth it. they are much sturdier and if you bump something electrical they don,t conduct like aluminum. If you want to see the diff borrow someone's alum use it a little bit then climb up on a fiberglass one.

OK, I will check for a fiberglass step ladder

About HD, I found one who apparently accepts Harbour Freight coupons....
Now, I have to find such coupon. If anyone as one, I would refund the stamp if you are willing to mail it to me (just pm me)

If your not in a hurry just go on the Harbor Freight catalog / flyer. they have coupons in them which you can use in store or online.
