Lowes has a good deal going on and apparently its in store only.

They have these guys
for 69.99 in store. I picked up two and love them. They have the craftsman style you break it bring it in we swap it warranty. It was nice to replace some of my old stuff and for junkyard tools.

I was pissed when I found out that they changed over to Chicom tools. I have a lot of the older USA made tools, which are good. I bought 1/2" Metric and SAE for 75% off before they switched over.

Yeah, I was pretty pissed too. I've got a fair bit of their clearance USA-made stuff in the camper, so I shouldn't ever break it. :look:

Some one told me that the old Lowes tools were poor mans Snap-On.

The old Lowes tools were unbranded Matcos. I have two of the sockets. They're nice, but not as nice as my new run Craftsmans or my Snap-ons ;)

I've gotten most of Lowes sets on sale. Lowes is retard with mark downs. I bought a Delta dust collection system for $25.00, that normal sold for $300.00. Now I'll have to switch over to Carftmens tools.
