    The FREAK for $79 at Lowes.

    This is different from the contest one because it’s not the 6.3ah battery and the better charger.

    It’s also not the idh182 – it’s the GDX18V-1600 which is, I believe, the homeowner/ DIV-er version of the idh182. I looked at them side by side the other day and the GDX definitely had a lower quality feel to it. The chuck is a little less smooth, the housing seems a little less rugged, it has slightly less torque (1600 vs 1650) and the motor sounds a little higher pitched/ less smooth running.

    Here’s hoping some of my fellow Canadians can find and post some deals, because I am tired of just being jealous of all of the great deals south of the border.

    I actually saw the flyer for the pros at home Depot , they have the 7 1/4 flexvolt circular saw on sale for 299 👍

    Wasn’t really a black Friday sale but was at the big Hartville Hardware today and they were having their big tool sale. All the reps were there .
    The place was a madhouse! I barely found a parking place.

    Here’s the annual Bosch promo that it says starts tomorrow but I just used it fine to order the new 18V vac to get my $30 off.

    https://www.amazon.ca/b/ref=amb_link_1?ie=UTF8&node=18335780011&pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_s=product-alert&pf_rd_r=46ZRH87JNRFNS32H6J6W&pf_rd_r=46ZRH87JNRFNS32H6J6W&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1b8decf5-4a8c-44fb-958c-b5356139ed48&pf_rd_p=1b8decf5-4a8c-44fb-958c-b5356139ed48&pf_rd_i=B07G7FPKMV

    This promo is not exclusive to Amazon.ca. You should see other Canadian Bosch retailers, but not all, offering it too.

    That’s confusing to call two different impacts both with the name “THE FREAK”. They should have called them The Freak, The Freakier, The Freakiest LOL.

    that’s the budget freak 😀
    Bosch calls the entire line “Freak” – the impactor with dual chuck.
    And they are quite some differences in between the IDH182 and GDX18V-1600.
    pretty much ideal for the semi-pro, DIY folks which go shopping at Lowe’s

    It really is. And after that whole contest, I would have thought “The Freak” would just mean either the idh182 or that paired with a Core battery. But I guess not.

    But it is at a very good entry price. $80 for a decent tool, battery and charger.

    I stopped going to that about 10 years ago. I can find better deals online most of the time. It is cool to see the new stuff and talk with the reps though.

    I got the SamSung Galaxy Tab A (8″). It’s my first Tablet and it looks like I’ll be learning how to use it for a while now. I think it was 130$

    Good luck Dirty, I got a tablet a couple years ago and never did figure it out. It collects dust.

    I have a similar older Samsung G4 tablet and my son has that A you just bought. Get a slim case for it and you can likely fit it in most work pockets although the G4 is a tad smaller mine can slip in my back pocket of my Levis for when I’m walking around.

    I’ve had it for many years now and it is where I do 90 percent of my BTP posting from. It goes with me everywhere alomg with my phone. I rarely use my phone for the internet or posting. You get older you simply want a bigger screen to work from. $130 is a good price for it. Congratz!

    Once we gave our son a phone, he stopped using his A Galaxy tablet. I’ll likely end up using it once mine dies of what is likely the lithium battery pooching, but I think I’m coming up on five years now with mine. The only issue I had it was getting really funky last year, but I saved all my files to a micro SD and did a faxtory reset and it cleared everything up. They’re good tablets imo. A lot less expensive than Apples.

    Yesterday I saw at HD a bosch paddle bit set for 5.99$ there were 8 or 9 bits in it.

    I picked a set last week. It’s a good buy.

    I got the Daredevil set for $4.99 at HD Wednesday.

    That sounds like a good deal.
