Same here. Not available in any of the stores near where I’ll be for Christmas day either.

You guys misundertood what he did. He got them to add in the extra separate item, the thumb drive, to the set they have, to equal #607976. In other words he got them to throw the thumb drive in. Smile

Ah got it.

By the way, the Lowes I went to today still didn’t have the marked down price posted.

You explained that so much better than I did. Silly

So you’re going back? See, I knew you would buy 3. It was inevitable.

I’m wishing I did, but I’ll accept the original deal as I don’t have time to stop into lowes.

Hah! I grabbed 3 tonight totally forgetting all this talk of these being sold in threes! Bought one set for me sad two as gifts.  Plenty on the shelves at my Lowe's.

My Lowes refused to cooperate and would not allow the combining of the 2 for 9.98
They said it is an online deal only and it could be ordered online and picked up at the store. Trouble is I can’t figure out how to actually order it. All stores are out of stock.
I may have to just let go if this and be happy with what I got.

^ I didn't have any luck either.  Was going to ask you to dchotize me and try again, but it appears that this one is even beyond your powers. Wink

If the ratchet works as advertized, I'm quite happy with the deal we got.  I'll be babying my ratchet and just use it for those frustratingly tight spaces that cars today are loaded with.  I miss the old Falcons and such were you could practically climb in the engine compartment to work on the engine.

Subscribed. Weird no recent deals posted this long after Christmas.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooches him… and says, Catch up.

The direct-drive ratchet & socket sets are still sitting on the shelf at my Lowes at the $9.98 price.  Plenty of stock.

Mine too. And BTW, I have had the chance to use my DD ratchet several times and I really like it. It seems strange at first, but once you get used to not hearing and feeling the clicks it is really in nice. I have not had a chance to really wail on it though and I don’t intend to.

As far as Lowes deals lately, they really suck. Maybe this spring.
On the other hand, they still have some of the LuxPro lights at full list. At that price they are just not worth it.

If you need a staple gun, here’s a name brand one for $4. Opt for in store pickup and you won’t have to pay shipping.

i don’t really need the ratchet set even though it is a good price, plus all the local stores are out. $4 for the stapler is a pretty good deal. Local store has 20 of them. I’m going to stop in the morning and pick one or two up.

Well struck out. Only one local store has them. Says they have 20 in stock but they can’t find them. Spent 30 minutes this morning with multiple employees with no luck. Plus it won’t let me ship to store unless they have it in stock. No point in using the one with stock as it’s lost.

If you select ship to store, and the store can’t fulfill it from their own stock, the distribution center will have to send them one for you.

A friend of mine found this deal

only he didn’t pay $58.21 but rather $1.92. He bought all 7 and gave me one.

This is a 50 inch clamp edge for using as a guide when cutting doors and plywood with a skill saw. Very handy, and now I have one.

^ Nice.  I probably walked right past some of those today and didn't even know they were on clearance like that. 

I did purchase a metric and a SAE 1/4" 6-point socket set that GarryBunk alerted us to above.

Lowe's has a whole bunch of markdowns on home LED light bulbs. The 40w & 60w equiv. are $2.48 each!

Those socket/ratchet sets that were $9.98 forever went up in price for the Memorial Day sale! Smile Now $19.98 IIRC.

According to Lowe's website, the Utilitech LED bulbs are still $2.48/each (i.e. the markdown was not just a Memorial Day sale as that sale ended yesterday).  I'll be really surprised if this is a permanent markdown.  It's probably to combat Home Depot selling those Philips 2-packs at $4.97/ea (which are showing as being back in stock at my store).  My Lowes also replenished its stock of the 60w equivalents.  These Utilitech bulbs are 3,000k, not the usual 2,700k so they will look odd if you mix them (or even between rooms using different color temps).  I personally like these 3,000k a lot.  My personal experience is that a 40w equivalent LED bulb will replace a 60w equivalent CFL with equal amount of light.  When I replaced a 60w equivalent CFL with a 60w equivalent LED it was way too bright!  (Though this was on a ceiling fan using 3 bulbs.)

Just wish I could find a standard A19 / E-26 25w equivalent LED bulb that didn't cost an arm & a leg!

I was just in my Lowes, they had been raised up to $24.98, but now they are all gone! Either they went on clearance or they got pulled. There used to be 10 of the thumb wheels, they never sold a single one.

I was in another Lowes today and they still had them on display for 19.98. I talked to the tool guy about the price going back up and he said yeah, they didn’t sell. He has 15 cases of them on the overhead. He also said he bought 5 last Christmas for presents. Everybody LOVES ‘em

EDIT: I forgot to mention that he said that after they were reduced to 9.98 and before they went back up to 19.98, they had them for 7.75 and still they did not sell.
So I am really wondering what happen to all the ones in my hometown store?

I also saw these new work lights. I didn’t get one as I already have plenty, but they looked really nice.

I will check them out further later, didn’t have time today.

In case you didn’t see my post in another thread. Lowes is fire sailing all of their Crown brand chemicals because they will no longer carry them. Sale prices until May 30th.

They had a gallon of MEK for $1.80 locally until they sold out.

Thanks to your post and ONLY your post I was able to score some deals on Crown solvents. Last week 1 Lowes I was in only had 1 Crown product, that being a gallon of Acetone for $6.60. Later that day I needed it! I was using some Super Glue and and spilled it all over the palm of my hand. An Acetone soak removed it.

Yesterday I came across some gallons of Lacquer Thinner and got those for $3.60. Makes and excellent degreaser and cleaner, however it can attack some plastics.

Today at my local Lowes, which up to now was not discounting Crown, had some UNPOSTED deals.



They all rang up 80 to 90% off.

15 gallons of expensive specialty solvents for $50

I didn’t get as good a price as you did on the M.E.K., paid $5.50, not $1.80 as you did :_(

FYI, the Lowe's LED bulbs have been changed recently which may be why the price has recently lowered?

On my first trip in, I bought two of the 60W equivalent bulbs to test. I was happy with them and went back for more, only to find that they had restocked, and the new 60W bulbs aren't the same. The first pair I purchased were 9.9W with a heavy metal heatsink base. The later bulbs are rated at 9.5W and have completely skipped the heatsink. They now have a standard plastic collar where the heat sink used to be, and weigh about half as much. The 75W-equivalent bulbs still have the heavy heat-sink base, but they are about $12/each.

The light is still nice, with a decent temp, but I'm not happy with the change, and am worried about emitter longevity.

Mini Review:

I purchased these to replace the CFLs in my garage/workshop lights. My lighting is two single-bulb ceiling fixtures; I was using 2x of the 23W 100W-equivalent CFL bulbs per fixture, with the help of splitters. I replaced the CFLs with the LED bulbs, but was disappointed with the brightness in this application. The 4x LED bulbs were still significantly dimmer than the CFLs, and were insufficient in this application. My eventual plan is to add a third fixture, to allow additional bulbs to be installed, once done, I should be able to swap over to the LED lights, and get more light than the CFLs can provide.


Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

I believe that my store has both types (with and without heatsink), but I thought I only noticed it on the 40w equivalents.  I'll have to take a look, but the ones I'm using without heatsink (with plastic collar) have been going strong - though I think these are the 40w equivalents. (My pic in post#111 shows the 40w's in both type.)

I did recently install 4 more Utilitech 40w equivalents (I think the plastic collar type) and noticed flickering (almost like low PWM).  I was afraid I was going to have to return them, but after letting them "burn in" a day or two of normal use they seem fine.
