I'm liking the hammer. A screwdriver set and he can fix anything. LOL

Last weekend, I bought a 8" drill press from Harbor Freight. Regular price was $90 and was on sale for $40. Then I used a 20% off coupon. So it came to $32 before taxes. I added a 2 year warranty for $10 and the total with tax was $44.

Same day, I took my (after 1 month of use) Craftsman drill back to the store. I screwed up the keyless chuck and got a new one.

So I left to pick my son up at school and I drove past the storage units behind my house. I saw a garage sale sign so I looked down as I drove past. I could see many things, some looked interesting. So after I picked my son up I figure, why not just take a peek, not like it'* really out of my way. And this is what I found, and got them cheep too.

A full set of T and E sockets. I have most of the T sockets already, but I don't have a single E socket. So I grabbed the set.

What else you got automotive? Just this, and he pulls out another box.

Well, I've been looking at a set of these, just never pulled the trigger on the set. Until today. Can't pass it up for $5.

Great find. I recently acquired a large amount of tools for the shop. Some were too rusty to salvage, but overall a decent set. I'll get pictures the next time I get out to the shop.
