@gremln007 In my opinion, this wouldn’t be a very practical general purpose set. I had something similar to this (link) that was amazing for me going through college and when I moved into my own house. Even used it to build the arch for my wedding. While this is a very nice socket set, sockets are rarely needed for your average Joe homeowner. Some channel locks can get the same job done, usually. I’ve also had a really good experience with a Black & Decker set like this (link). Just my two cents, hope it helps
I like turtles…

RE: Lowe's: Pink Flamingo 28-in Garden Statue Lawn Ornament $1.59 (Save 80%) YMMV
Drat! Dozens in stock down the road, but at $8 a pop . Was hoping to display my proud Floridian upbringing in my California drought-choked front yard.
SteelSeries Stratus XL, Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for Windows + Android, $28.95 @ Amazon
Lowest Price ever according to CCC. Been keeping an eye on one for a while and decided to finally pull the trigger on it (pun intended), despite somewhat mixed reviews (which frequently seem to be user error). Most people complained about issues with Win 10, but I plan on using it for Android only. Grabbed the extra 4-year protection plan for an extra ~$1.50 for peace of mind. From what little research I’ve done, this is considered one of the best-quality and most reliable Bluetooth Android controllers.
RE: 100% cashback in SYWR Points on Select Craftsman Tools Sold by Sears
@ctgolfer Appreciate the heads-up! Just snagged the 85-pc Axess set, belt sander and angle grinder. I’ll be able to retire some inferior tools that have been bogging me down. My wife won’t be happy, but it’s hard to argue with “free” tools!!!
RE: Grandma's Cookies Variety Pack, 30 Count $9.49 + FSSS @ Amazon
@ctgolfer Tempting, but I can get these for FREE by donating my precious lifeblood once in a while. And orange juice to wash it down with, mmm MMM! Talk about a win-win!
RE: WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s 2.5"/7mm Solid State Drive - WDS500G2B0A $77 Shipped Amazon
Dangit, just paid $89 for a Crucial SSD thinking I wouldn’t see better for a while. This one seems solid, previous lowest price according to CCC- $88.99 (Aug 01, 2018).
RE: Install Amazon Assistant Browser Extension & Get $5 Off $25+ for Prime Members (Select Amazon Accounts)
Hmm, I went through those steps and all it said to me was “amazon assistant - Your Installation is Complete”. No $5 off offer anywhere I could find, and I was already signed into Amazon and therefore signed into the extension. I may hit up their customer service when I get a chance and find out what the deal is.
(Edit) I contacted their chat support and the rep said “I see that it was not issued, in this case I am manually issuing the promo”. So he tossed me the $5 manually, and it only took about 3 minutes. Easy money, thanks!
RE: Amazon Prime Day July 16
@mrvietnam That was when I finally decided to nab one, and I’ve used it plenty of times since. In fact, I made some BBQ ribs last weekend and the meat fell right off the bones. Only 30 min cook time and didn’t have to heat the house by using the oven. Heckuva machine.
RE: Free After $10 Rebate Behr Premium All-In-One Wood Cleaner - Home Depot
If i’m looking at this correctly, there are many products that qualify for the rebate, not just the Wood Cleaner (linky).
Wouldn’t this also be FAR (redwood stain)? That stain seems to be the only other FAR item I could find, though.
