That Amazon coupon for the Thrunite Catapult Mini seems to have been there for a few weeks now….tempting, as I just received the larger version, and I’m impressed with it.

By the way, the Catapult V6 in black is on sale now on Amazon for $63.99.

$23.99 + -50% Vipon ($-12.00) + -10% Amazon coupon ($-2.40) = $9.59 + tax

Ive never used Vipon. I did create an account and used the ‘copy and go to amazon’ link and applied the 10% Amazon coupon and the Buy now button but the 50% Vipon was not applied. What am I doing wrong. Facepalm Thanks Beer Beer


All gone today. Maybe back tomorrow.

It worked for me today……….. $10.26 total. Thanks, I needed this.. Thumbs Up Beer Beer

Pen muiltimeter for $3.99
Shipped by Amazon. Only a few left.
They look cheaply made, but for $4 I figured why not.
The current mode is pretty much useless (only 200mA max and the fuse will blow at 250mA). I wouldn’t use this when any type of precision is required, but I was looking for a pen type for quick voltage debugging when it’s inconvenient to look away at my Fluke multimeter display.

USB C Fast Charger, Knofarm 48W 2 Port Charger with 30W USB-C Power Adapter Foldable PD 3.0 Wall Charger with 6.6ft USB C to C Cable $12 with code – Vapon
Nice. I’ve never heard of the brand “Knofarm”. I just picked up a BC-Master 65W USB-C and USB-A power adapter with foldable prongs (no protruding mount on this), for $27 on sale (after coupon). No cable. But it’s seriously solid and a little heavy (which should be a good thing). USB-C 3A delivered for 5V, 9V, 12V, 18V, and 3.25A for 20V. 65W with one port in use, 45W each when 2 ports in use (THIS is what really sold me). Came in a branded cardboard box reminiscent of JetBeam, with serial number. Manual in English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian. 24 month warranty.

Of course, I found it was on a steeper sale for a mere $11 last month after searching…
Ben’s Bargains bc-master-elite-65w-2-port-usb-c-usb-a-wall-charger Figures!

Btw, got the Knofarm 48W 2 port charger. It’s nice! Has a kind of “Apple” design feel to it. Rounded corners. The folding plug works well and has side bolsters on the casing for stability. It’s pretty well weighted. Usually the cheaper adapters are light for lack of substantial components & casing. Maybe this thing has some good shielding inside it. I haven’t tested out both ports simultaneously, but it seems to be capable of ample power supply (wattage and amperage). Overall, for $12 you can’t go wrong. Sadly, the deal has now expired but maybe it’ll return at a later date.

The seller who was selling at the $3.99 price only had 7 at the time I purchased. Amazon will show other sellers once that seller sold out. I guess it was a clearance sale price for that particular seller.

Thanks @mattlward, I used code FVVF-JVHF9S-6B57AB, it looks like an interesting light at the deal price.

Why the link through Facebook instead of a direct link though?

DFS corded rotary tool $10.50 with code on the page

Looks just like the one I bought thru Vipon a couple months back —Good power Nice Kit —King of bulky and heavy though

Just got mines today, very nice. Solid blow-molded case, all the goodies, well worth the price and then some. Tacklife-branded, so built like a tank just like that light.

Problem is they just beg “STEAL ME!!!”, because it’s the nekkid box in cellophane-wrap, with the shipping labels just slapped on.

Good thing I was like Right Here when the FedEx driver rang the bell, as any schmo passing by would see exactly what it was and could just abscond with it in seconds.

 

Interesting 1-star review I just saw now. Will see about the brushes in time, I guess.

I use my Dremel a lot and bought this for the accessories not knowing that it was compatible with all of my dremel attachments.

Mine was supposta be Friday, but it’s still in Joisey at night, so I get the push-back email for Saturnday instead.

Last time I looked, it was on the truck in the early ayem but I get another push-back email for a Monday delivery instead.

Thankfully, I hear the big honkin’ diesel and the truck’s radio blasting, and sure enough, my bell rings and my goodies are here.

No “out for delivery” email or even in the recap (usually 6-7ish when the truck rolls out), just suddenly delivered.

Yeh, standard 1/8” shafts and the like. Easier for them to buy the same goodies made for all other rotodrills than come up with their own custom stuff.

Gotta love de facto standardisation. LOL

Yup. me too. I came home to it leaning against my front screen. I’m thinking: I didn’t order any Tacklife stuff! cool!….luckily my stoop is somwhat private.

In your Amazon check out, there is an option to use Amazon packaging. It basically makes it a gift package but still free

Hola folks, from a newbie, and also recent 'refugee' from Bladeforums (... lol)! Nice to find a place that combines two of my fav interests, 'portable' lighting and knives... and also where 'budget', or 'Made in China' ain't 'dirty words'.

Dunno if this 'qualifies', but recently came across this Amazon find which seems to come and go, but basically a 'modern' flipper version of the classic Buck 110, in 1065 steel with fiberglass scales and solid stainless bolsters. Sharp as hell, amazing fit and finish, deploys smartly and very 'fidget-friendly'.... for only $10.95 (w/ free shipping)?!

Only downside is it doesn't have a deep carry clip, which wasn't hard to add (even if the clip cost almost as much as the knife)... and overall seems like an incredible deal.

It's good to have you here, MingOnMongo!

I love assisted openers, but I have to have a pocket clip.

Interesting, tnx, didn’t know that. Thought maybe it was a plain brown box, vs having The Amazon Wang all over it.

Why does your pirate symbol have penises as sword grips ?

It doesn't.

It's just a pic of the Dread Pirate Roberts.

It has nothing to do with penises.

That's what sword handles look like.

Unless it’s not a sword but an epee instead…

Just about every Calico Jack Rackham pirate flag on the market has the same crossed swords with penis like grips .

Except the one used on Black Sails .
