52mm. Hmmm, same size as the SRK reflectors.

That’s also a good price on the 9AA light that is ib the right.

I just got a chance to check out the Utilitech 3C I just picked up at Lowes. Pretty nice light, has the older XM-L in it. No tailcap switch, it is up by the head which I like. My biggest surprise is that this 3C light accepts 26650’s, THEY FIT! I have never seen that in a “C” sized light. Think of the possibilities. !{width:40%}[url=http://imgur.com/brwLkie][img]http://i.imgur.com/brwLkie.jpg[/img][/url]!

I dont think I’ve ever seen a C cell light that accept 26650’s either.

If you (or anyone else has one), can you please check to see if the Utilitech 3C battery tube will lego with the Defiant Superthrower?

Lowes near me has some of those 3C lights for $7.49. I may go back. Those of you that bought them…can you disassemble the head? I thought some of the Utilitech lights won’t open up very easily.

I FOUND GOLD!!! (sort-of) Big Smile

Found these PEX toilet supply lines right when I went to lowes to get a new toilet valve and supply!

For the price of one of those 12” PVC lines, you can get 17 of the PEX lines.
In this picture, that bundle of PEX lines on the left is the same price as that PVC supply line on the right.

I only got 6 of them. At the checkout they rang up at full price so the attendant(s) had to manually enter the price… we got them for 20¢ each Big Smile

I wish those faucet supply lines were on clearance like that.

A friend of mine called me today to alert me of this deal. These wire strippers are nice, blades are made of stainless steel.
In my Lowes they are marked at list price and there is a sign noting that select Southland wire strippers are 10% off until 6/21. That’s today. But they ring up at 50% off, I don’t know what would happen tomorrow. The web site says they are 50% off for a limited time. I checked a number of stores in various States and this deal seems to be universal.

So the date on that 10% off sign said it was good until 6/21. That was the day I found out about that 50% off on those stripper. The next day the deal was still on, but the following day it was off. A store employee told me that the 50% off on that item was an advertised special.
I was back in a Lowes yesterday, here are some of the discounts I saw. YMMV, I am posting these as a sample of what could be found if one were to just walk around looking.



Think online sales have free shipping? Regular price at Lowes is $9.95 and YOU do the shipping, YOU take it home with you. Amazon price says free shipping, but is it really?

some more stuff
These right angle “F” cable connectors tagged at 56 cents rang up for 11 cents.



This is not a deal, a couple of months ago several of the Lowes around here cleared these out at $7.50

Gerber Clutches were not even carried at one close Lowes and I couldn’t find them on the website so they must not be universally stocked.

I don’t know if this would be of any interest or if they are even available in other stores, but on Black Friday one of Lowes deals was 24V Kobalt drill packs for $10.00
I was in my store the other day and this deal is still on!


I bought one just out of curiosity. It contains 6 LG 1.5Ah cells.

I have 2 pair of those, the regular handle the picture shows and the normal strippers and a pair of the shears for cutting screws. They are great strippers. Very light and compact. 

The website for my local Lowes still shows regular price...

Hey Garry,
Did you know that all future associates have to go to a company owned school for training?
It’s called “Lowe Tech”

So there’s a new Lowes in town? Smile

BTW, this screws me up ALL the time.
I’ll go shopping at Home Depot and Lowes and back home when I clean out the car this is what messes me up.

THAT is a Home Depot bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lowes Utilitech LED bulbs on clearance (guessing a new style / revamped packaging is coming out). I personally like these bulbs. I like the 3000k tint.

Not bad, I have those bulbs throughout my home, and so far, no failures.

Off topic a bit, but Wal Mart stores in my area have been clearancing out last season’s LED bulbs for good prices as well. I was able to get a good buy on some of the 100W equivalent bulbs, with the old style heavy fluted heatsink bases ($5/pr) to, and several 75W equivalent GE PAR 30 like pictured below for $5 each. I’m both cases, I checked the new stock and the same style bulbs were available for 3-5x the clearance cost.


Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

Interesting, I wonder if they will still be made in China… The older stuff that is made in the USA are better quality. I dred breaking any of my Craftsman stuff because I know they will replace with the new stuff.

I saw this deal on LED 4’ replacement tubes for florescent light fixtures.These pics come from 2 different Lowes stores. I checked a few other stores around the country online and this deal seems to be everywhere.
This is by far the cheapest I have ever seen 4’ LED replacement tubes!
I picked up a 4 pack for $12.49 to play around with. Our kitchen ceiling fixture takes 3 tubes, leaving me one to mess with. I’ll post those pics later.
4 tubes for $12.49 is only a little over $3 each!

2 packs for $7.49 (5000K DayLight)

or 4 packs for $12.49 (5000K DayLight)

On the left are 4 packs of 4000K bulbs marked down to $21.23

Do these tubes work WITHOUT the ballast? For that price,I’m betting NOT.

They do not, they work only with an electronic ballast. Not the magnetic ones.
Actually for most I would think that would be preferable. Simple replacement.
As I said, I’ll know more after I fool around with one

I just do not like anything Utilitech.
They work right out of the box but seen to die at a rapid rate.

I was a Electrical Contractor most of my life and did see how bad this brand was/is.

Buy what ever you want but I will not be buying these.

My point is with ballast it is very inefficient When I go led, I do not want a ballast. So I would go with other type tubes. There is a thread already about those tube types.
