Tool News & Reviews
I noticed that my local tool store is running a promotion that will get you $100 off select Milwaukee Tool Kits, if you trade in a professional grade cordless tool that is 14.4V or greater along with two batteries. This $100 off promotion is not limited to my local store, and is in fact available at participating Milwaukee dealers around the country.
Milwaukee Tools is set to release a total of six new M18 Compact Drills and Drivers over the next few months that will replace existing models. The new models include two Drills (2606-22CT, 2607-22), two Impact Drivers (2657-22CT, 2656-20), and Two Impact Wrenches (2658-22, 2659-22). All six boast improvements to ergonomics and overall performance.
HomeDepot.com has a pretty sweet deal on the Milwaukee M12 3/8 in. Drill/Radio Combo kit. What was normally $199 has been marked down to $149 for the week. Taking a quick look at other online stores finds the same kit for $189 or higher.
What makes the deal even better is what is included with the kit. At $149 you might expect something bare-bones or with only one battery, but on top of the Drill and Radio, this kit actually comes with two batteries, a charger, and a contractor bag.
The reason for buying a portable generator may vary from person to person—one might want to power up tools on a remote jobsite, another to use for camping and recreation, or still another for backup electricity during a power outage—but if your reason for choosing a portable generator is portability then you'll want a generator that's truly portable.
If you have been impatiently waiting for Milwaukee to release their 2626-22 M18 Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool to use alongside your other Milwaukee cordless tools, you won't have to wait much longer—like maybe only a few more days. Along with a freshly delivered press release (below) as evidence, ToolBarn.com has them listed as shipping October 1st.
For the most part Rockler caters their stores and their tools to people who work in shop environments, and their own products are no different. Rockler has come out with a new line of tool pouches and aprons that have been designed to meet the different needs of those working in a shop, including the ability to use them off the belt.
