Home Depot Black Friday ad came today.
Gorilla aluminum work platform for $17. Bought 3 last year. Not super heavy duty, but nice for trimming 8' doors or crown on 8' ceilings. I'll be picking up 3 more this year.

Also, 5' Werner 225 rated stepladders for $15. I'll be picking up 3 of these as well.

6 years of Black Friday deals I have never seen anything that sucked me in. its normally stuff you don't need but buy loads of just because they are cheap or its discontinued models that were only 20% more expensive a year before. Take the 25% HF coupons to lowes and get them deals all year long.

Got another Lenox 13pc hole saw kit for $49 at lowes today, regular 89. Got a Milwaukee set at HD last year for 39

Other than that it's a bunch of junk for someone like me with too many of each tool haha

Lowes accept competitors coupons and so do HD. Only one issue though. Its one coupon per item but I find them coupons in every mag I open so they are easy to find. I use them on larger items from lowes and HD.

I have a couple ready to go for next time I spot something.

Check the hose diameter first. Some have skinny ones - my dad got skunked a couple years ago. (Or save your old hose, since it may still have the large port)

Yeah I did that at HD. Bought a vac that was half its normal price. It was the biggest POS vacuum I ever owned. Bought the better quality hose for more than the vac cost me. I threw it out on the curb 2 years ago. Only a year after I bought it.

If you want a vac that's so loud you couldn't hear a 747 taking off 50ft away, leaks dust past the filter like there is no filter, crappy hose that will split in half the first time you use it, wheels that catch on staples and tip the vac over, cords so short they won't reach to a receptacle before you get to the end of a room and totally over rated CFM figures they are the vacs to get.

Model number? I've been looking for that combination of features.

Ridgid 12 Gallon Vac for $29

Ridgid Portable TableSaw with stand $299

Dewalt DWS780 $399

Werner Step Stools $17

Milwaukee Hole Saw set $29

I get up early anyway, so no big deal to me. Looked at the circulars, only thing I really want/need is ratcheting box wrench sets.
