Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, Flea market

I've found out that tool places like Re-Tool are more expensive

depends what you are buying.

Dewalt go to Home Depot
Milwaukee go to any contractor store
Bosch go to John R electric

Or just go to Sears

If you are looking for the rare Nick's broken tools I have a pile in my garage. You can have them at a discounted price.

you might already know about the craftsmen club bio, so i feel dum telling ya. You have to sign up at sears or online and you get your own special mailer with extra discounts, and you get advance notice and "craftsmen club special sales".

Also northern tool has some decent sales if you sign up for their hotline catalog (it costs i think 20-30 bucks a year but you get free shipping on anything from the hotline catalog, and they have some good deals on name brand stuff). And they will email you sales also.

I mostly buy from local stores, sears, homedepot, lowes, neighborhood hardware stores etc.

Sorta on topic- I was at Home Depot earlier today and they had a 2-pack of Dewalt 18 volt batteries for $99.00. Also they have a product I've never seen before- a Dewalt 18 volt cordless vacuum. $129.00 for the vacuum, battery and charger. I just got a new 18 volt battery and charger- they cost $145.00 for both- fortunately they were covered under a recall.

I usually go to Butki Saw. Prices are just as good as Home Depot and Lowes but they have better service and usually more selection.

Well after using JeepRats 4.5 inch grinder I decided to buy a power tool each pay check so that I have all this stuff prior to me buying a house next year... its not like I am never going to use the stuff.. So i was just curious as to who has better prices. First tool I am going to get is a 4.5 inch grinder. What is the difference in them. Miluakee has one for 119 amd Makita 49.... what makes 1 better than the other?

when i worked for my uncle we always used Makita ginders. they have had them for years and they still work great. i think in all reality you just pay for the miluakee name. i have used both and they seem to work the same so i think its just a personal preference.
