Dchomak, I registered just to tell you thank you. I’ve been browsing this forum for the past year…a lot more often after this post was created.

I now frequent about 8 local home depots…no penny deals yet. I just scored the Husky tool chest last night though!

You’re welcome!
And welcome to BLF.

Tomorrow I leave for North East Ohio and on Monday on to Columbus. I will probably pass right thru your stomping ground.
Guess there’s no use trying to find deals at your HD’s, right Wink

I will be picking up 3 more of those tool chests along the way though, found online and already paid for.
Errr, you ARE going to use yours for storing flashlights, right?

Just kidding LOL

I was in Providence, RI today and saw this rolling work top cabinet on sale for $209.00. It is the same one that has been on sale for $298 since before Black Friday. So far this is the only store that I have seen them at this price. Other stores could follow. At 52 inches long, it is perfect for 2 of these 26 inch upper tool chests side by side.


At one time it was $329.00

I plan on putting 2 of those 9 drawer, 26 inch cabinets on the one I have. Here is mine with 2 – 26 inch 4 drawer toolchests that I got on BF. Those 2 tool chests are not as high, doesn’t have as many drawers nor are as deep as the $49.00 one. They are already full, the reason I need the bigger ones.

The Providence store had the 26 inch tool chest and it’s matching bottom on display. The top is $49 and the 7 drawer bottom is $149.00
The combination is in the foreground of this picture and stands about 5 feet tall.

Bort,

I think I have that same B&D Battery Booster. When I used it to charge my phone from about 10%, it charges it up to 100%. But after just 1 charge the LED indicator light goes from Blue thru Yellow to Red. That means it is time to recharge. That in and of itself is disturbing.
But tonight I ran a fully charged Booster thru a resistive load and measured and timed the results. It ran for 3 hours 27 minutes before shutting down. The current wavered around 1.78A and the during the discharge the output voltage was about 4.78V. So during the test the output Watt Hours was
3.5H x 1.78A x 4.78V = 29.78WH

Inside there are 6 Samsung 20Q’s in series, and the WH rating of those 6 cells would be 3.6V x 6 cells x 2AH/cell = 43.2 AH
So about 70% efficient.

Buck converters are usually more efficient that boost converters, no?

!{width:30%}[url=http://imgur.com/J4r26xX][img]http://i.imgur.com/J4r26xX.jpg[/img][/url]!


I’ve given this some thought, my phone is 2100mAh (2000 used for calculation) 3.7V is 7.4Wh, 70% would give about 10.5Wh, so two full charges would eat 21Wh or about half the 43Wh of the booster. This is not exact, there would be some inefficiencies and i would charge the phone before its completely dead but i will from now on do two charges from the power pack instead of 1/2 that i was doing.
This should create a storage voltage of about 40-50%

It’s been slow around here, I went this am and didn’t find much worth reporting. Scanned a few BF items and they haven’t dropped (that dremel set 162 pc, is still 10$ and the diablo dozer hole saw set is still $30) I already bought 2 of the dremel sets for 10$ so I’ll wait for a while. The husky 1500,2000,3000 lumen led work lights will be at the 3 price soon, they’re the ones with the tripods.

No pics of anything sorry. I saw one of the milwaukee tool chests (top only) it will ring up 75$ but I have no need for it so I passed. DCH not sure if that top would fit on your bench but its worth a look.

I am on the road and can’t post pictures easily.
From traveling I can see that the 52” Husky Work center cart IS $209.00
But they are hard to find.
If anybody had noticed the speaker mounts at the “3” price of $3.83, they are now a penny
Also a friend from Missouri called me from his Home Depot store to tell that the CAT stuff there was at the “3” price. He scored 2 of the big CAT battery chargers at $38.03 and 1 of the 1000A car boosters for $38.03
He took it apart and found that it contains a 21Ah lead acid battery. Not Li—Ion

To anyone considering purchasing a Husky tool chest, seriously consider going down to your local Harbor Freight and look at their US General 44” chest.

“44” Chest”:http://www.harborfreight.com/44-in-13-drawer-glossy-red-industrial-rolle...

I labored over finding the best tool chest that would last me long enough to give to my children and this one fit the bill. It’s seriously heavy duty – weighs over 200lbs empty and has over a 2,000lb capacity.

It’s currently $349, so in a different price point, but if you go check it out, I think you’ll see what I mean….it’s in a different class compared to that Husky chest.

A total newbie, getting quickly addicted...

Unfortunately – they 20% off coupons typically say they can’t be used on the chests.

I bought mine 3 years ago and I couldn’t use it then….I think they started cracking down about 5 yrs ago.

Honestly, I’d buy it if it was a $500 chest. I sound like some weird Harbor Freight fanboy, but this box is the bees knees and IMO, competes with boxes 3-4-5x it’s price.

No argument from me!

The U. S. General stuff from Harbor Freight is definitely better quality. Hard for some to believe, but true.

The $209 for the 52” Husky rolling work center makes it more compelling for me though.

BTW,
ALL tool chests, carts, cabinets, etc. should be the color Red and only Red

I have been following those same 4 items, none yet.
I am still in Ohio, and am finding other penny deals.
Also some things I know are a penny by now back home are still at the 6 or 3 price here
Yesterday I found a store that had the B&D power boosters we just talked about at $17.43. A friend that was with me bought 4.

I know where one of the BD bolsters is at, it’s in an obscure place. I’m going to wait for it to hit a penny. What was the date on his that he bought.

Which by rights should have been old enough to have been a penny

Ahh yes, I forgot they started at a .97 price and it took forever for them to switch to a .06

There are a number of august 2016 clearance items at my hd but non of them are cheaper when I price check. I keep trying but either I still don’t undrstand or my hd is immune to this phenomenon?

Depends on the item and the ending price. If it’s a light bulb they take a long time. If it ends in something other than 6,3,4,2 then it takes longer too.

I wasn’t able to post any pictures while I was away, but I took some!
I was traveling from CT thru NY to NE Ohio, then to Columbus, OH (Central Ohio)
Clearance prices on some items are definitely different, but others are the same.
Before and after my trip I bought a total of 15 of the $49 tool chest, so far friends have taken 9. Also while I was away, a friend called me while in our local store to tell me that the 52” Husky Workcenter was on sale at $209. I knew that, but up until then, I couldn’t find any. It worked out that the very next store I stopped in on my way out had 2. I bought and paid for them, telling them I would pick them up in a week on my way back. For some reason, that one item will not show up on the internet at $209. You need to be in the store to ask.
I also asked every store I was in during my trip the check other stores for stock. Everytime there were none within a 100 mile radius. I was very lucky to find the 2 that I did.

This store had 8 packs of EcoSmart LED bulbs for $12.00 (was 0.00) Big Smile

While this store had them for $4.53

One store had a whole tray of these night lights that pennied out over a year ago.

These long handled loppers and pruning shear combo was at the “6” price the last time I saw them. I grabbed this last set at this store.

These push hooks rang up for a penny each at the self checkout register. Trouble was, I didn’t notice that the one on top of this rack was a package of 40, not the 20 that were a penny. It rang up for $6.98.
I had to tell the attendant to take it off, I didn’t want that one. She did and when she saw the others at a penny, smiled and canceled the whole ticket and let me have the penny ones for free.

I found these adjustable speaker mounts in several of the stores. They all rang up for a penny.


Those 2 FEIN tools rang up for $7.53 each. I also found a couple of universal adapters for these type of tools that were regularly $4.97 marked at 46 cents…. But they rang up for 33 cents. Smile
In the background is a shot of a Ridgid Tri-Stack. The newer repacement model is on clearance. I saw them in multiple stores, and every store had them at the “6” price of 225.06. Last year I found the older model at $75.03, a killer deal.

During the trip, another friend from Missouri called me from his local HD to tell me he just scored 2 of the big CAT battery chargers and one of the 1000A boosters for $38.03. These are the same units some of us came across last year at those prices.

He took the 1000A booster apart to find a 21Ah Lead-Acid battery, NOT Li-Ion as we all had hoped.

I found some of the CAT stuff in Ohio, but not at the “3” price. Everything was at the “6” price, ready to switch any day now.


These weren’t marked down at all

One store DID have the 1000A pack at the “3” price, but they had sold out.

This store had both portable Li-Ion boosters that we have seen on clearance. The Battery Tender one and the B&D one, plus some other stuff we have seen, but not yet on clearance.

A friend that was with me, when he saw the B&D booster for $17.43, bought 4

I got a kick out of this. The very same fitting brush that is carried by Harbor Freight and priced at $1.99, is now on clearance at the “6” price of “only” $7.56.

Something to perhaps keep an eye on………..

Not too long ago, I caught the 100 piece tool set for $13.03 and the box wrench set for $5.02
Here is this years stock just starting out on their clearance journey.

I had already found some of these 8” under counter florescent lights for a penny. Here they are again.

And lastly, at one of the stores, just above the recycle bins, I saw these recall notices.
One of them is for the CREE T8 replacement LED tubes.

I haven’t seen any since I got back home. Sad
No penny deals either, but I did come across these clearance items.
This Milwaukee worklight that I posted about, and had some fun with here
Meet my friend Bob and his new flashlight
is on clearance.
Originally this worklight came out at $250.00, my friend got one for half that. On Black Friday HD offered a special combo deal including a 5Ah battery and charger for free! Now stores with leftover stock are clearing them out. This store has them for $225.00. The included battery alone goes for $120


While another store is $199.00

Some other stuff I picked up



This is a universal adapter that allows any brand of blade to be used in any brand multi tool.

These FEIN blades were found on a clearance endcap with no price. They checked out for $10.03 each
One package of Bi-Metal, and one package of Wood.

But they are packs of 3!

I bought one of these when it first went on clearance at $18.00

Then I saw them at $16.00 and now $14.00. I brought one up and got refunded the difference, $4
My local store had the Ridgid Tri-Stack compressors clearanced at $207.06, not $225.06 like other stores.

And lastly, this is NOT a Home Depot deal.
I just can’t help coming across deals on LED bulbs Blushing
A month or so I found 6 of these CREE 65W equivalent flood light bulbs for a penny a piece.

Yesterday I came across this display at “Ocean State Job Lot”, a regional chain found in New England and New York. With about 115 stores, they are similar to “Big Lots” and “Ollies”, but closer in style to “Ollies”

These are the same CREE bulbs I scored for a penny, now at OSJL.
Price is 99 cents a piece, BUT

This is a “Crazy Deal”
A Crazy Deal is a deal where after buying an item, you also recieve a gift card for a like amount.

So in other words, they are free.
Free beats a penny at HD, but not actually. There is the sales tax on $9.90, about 60 cents.
So those 10 bulbs cost me about 6 cents a piece.

We can now get the Atomic Beam Flashlight in Home Depot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently they have been offered for sometime now, it’s just that I never bothered to notice Wink

Seems like everyone else didn’t bother to notice either, so they are on clearance.
(reduced prices, no shipping or handling chargers) Big Smile

Presently it’s only at the “00” price.
Sure would like to score 1 at the “03” price
NOT

The Leatherman “SideKick” originally $29.88 was reduced to an even $23.00, and now $15.04



Hard to find, but the twin pack of Milwaukee 11 in 1 screw drivers are 50% off at $7.54. In 2 weeks they will go to about $2.72 or so.

The single pack is still full price.

Likewise for the Milwaukee knife set.


Some stores may still have them at a discount of $12.00, but they should be reduced at any time. Imagine in a couple of weeks a “2” price of about $3.82 Smile
These cheap lantern battery lights are now on clearance at $4.00 or $3.80. A single emitter and something like 70 Lumens. Includes the 6V lantern battery. Last year I modded one of these lights with an XHP-70
“My XHP-70 Sleeper Light Mod

Here is a nice clear case with combination lock.


I am now seeing the 2 pack of “C’ celled Maglites at $19.00.

Last year for the Holidays, HD had an AA and AAA Maglite combo that also started out at $24.98 (a good deal!) that eventually went to $6.33. I am hoping these will also survive to a price of around $6.33.
