Sears is in the middle of a 3-day sale on Craftsman tools, including storage, mechanics’ tool sets, compressors, and some other “selected” items. And, if you’re signed up for the old “Craftsman Club,” look for a “10% off everything” (read the tiny print by the asterisk to see what this really means) coupon in your mail — or press the clerk for it anyway if you didn’t receive it. It’s valid from 6-9 p.m. Sunday night.
If you’re dying to try out Craftsman’s new 20V li-ion drill/driver, it’s $270 right now. We haven’t seen it yet, so we’ll get back to you when we know more. But in the meantime, we can speculate that it looks a lot like the V18, and if you read our V18 hands-on you already know that the V18 is a 20V tool as well.
Major differences: Be sure and ask about the warranty. Considering Sears’ lackluster warranties on other power tools, we strongly doubt they’re going to match Milwaukee’s 2,000 cycle guarantee.
