Tools to look out for on Black Friday


I have been eyeing the fPorter-Cable PCE605K 3-Amp Corded Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit for a long time. Super glad that Lowes has a deal on it in their Black. Friday sale. Homedepot has a Ridgid system with all bells and whistles for a great price. What's on your wish list ? What are the best and must have tools for framing and remodeling?

Looking forward to what y'all think.....

Before any remodeling project starts, you should spend a ridiculous amount of money for the very best quality drill/driver and impact driver. The difference between cheap and good is so much that even your wife will realize that its a good investment. Get the impact driver, because after you do, you'll never drive screws with a drill/driver again.

As far as my wish list, I'm wanting a nice 3 ton floor jack. After putting on my wife's studs, and my mother-in-laws, I realize that my old jack really sucks.

I use my drill driver far more then any other tool.
I have the drill set as well as the box full of bits and sockets.
I can not rember the last time I used a reguler drill.

Black Friday is usually a great time to get a stepladder, shop vac (Ridgid) and some of those metal folding platforms. Also some great deals on drill bits.

im with joe on this.

as for a regular drill the only time i use a corded is when drilling a very high number of holes in a short time where using a cordless hte batteries wont do it and youll be waiting for batteries to charge

I could not find my lug wrench so I used mine to change a tire.
Works most of the time getting out rusted screws.
Installed many a carrage bolt, and lag bolt, decking screws, tile board screws, metal roofing screws.

That and my Rockwell Skill Crafter are my favorite tools.
