Well, I broke tradition this year. I actually went to several 'Black Friday' sales. I had a number of items that I wanted and were on sale yesterday.
First, Lowe's had a 1/2" Craftsman cordless drill on sale for $49. Since I was in the first 300 crowd, I got an extra $10 off. There were not a lot of folks in the parking lot at Lowe's at 6:00 a.m.
Second, Harbor Freight. I love Harbor Freight. I got a 29 piece (drill) Titanium set for $9.99. I got 4 of them - two for my shop and two for my home shop. Next was an IR Thermometer which I will use for my 'resurrected' thermal vacuum former. $17. Finally, a fifty foot 3/8" retractable air hose. I needed another one to have near my Vacuum Former. $49.
Third, Northern Tool. A lightning strike hit one of my shop building's transformers about a month ago. I had to have the 240V/3P breaker box replaced!!! OOUUCCHHHH!!! That strike also killed three of my battery tenders I had on two of my autos I store in that building. So, Northern Tool had a BatteryMINDer Plus on sale for $18. I bought three.
I didn't mind getting up extra early yesterday. There was no traffic, no crowds, and it was quick and easy.
Oh, I live in Wichita, KS. Not LA.
“...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
