Shopping For Tool Bargains

In this economy (and don’t even get us started on gas prices!), saving money is becoming increasingly important–and besides, who doesn’t love a bargain? Finding discounted tools can be a great way to expand your collection without breaking the bank.

As a starting point, you can always check with your favorite local hardware store to see what sales or specials they might be offering. After that, you can turn to the magic of the Internet to help you score a great bargain.
One such site? One Tool A Day, which offers just one tool for sale every day (hence the name.) Each tool is discounted a certain amount (excluding shipping), and a limited quantity are available. Today, for example, the site is offering a Ridgid CG-100 Micro Gas Sniffer, normally priced at $257.95 and discounted to $225. Of course, it’s up to you to decide if your tool collection will be woefully incomplete without a gas sniffer–just call us the enablers!


Of course, as with any sort of bargain shopping, you’ll want to make sure the deal isn’t too good to be true. Do a little research on the tool and its brand to make sure you’re not buying something that will fall apart after a few projects. With tool collections, it’s all about quality over quantity–and if you can get a bargain, well, that’s even better!
What are your thoughts on bargain tools? Have you found any good deals, or do you think tools should be an investment and not necessarily a discount find?
