It starts with the cursing, then the bloody knuckles, and eventually out comes the big hammer — we’ve all been there with a stuck, chewed-up bolt.  This seven-piece ratcheting bolt-out set from Sears might be able to help, and it’s only $10.

The set includes a Craftsman Crown-Lock double-ratcheting box wrench and six bolt-out extractors in sizes 8mm through 13mm and 15/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, and 1/2″.  You can get it online and in-store.

If you do any kind of engraving on glass, metal, or ceramic you might want to head over to Sears and check out this Craftsman engraver set that’s currently selling for $25.  Armed with a carbide stylus, the engraving pen features a variable-speed throttle, perfect for security engraving or maybe even a spot of home dentistry.

Amazon is currently offering this twin-pack of Stanley folding sawhorses for $30 — which, using my amazing math skill, comes to $15 a horse!  Rated for a maximum load weight of 1,000lbs, the sawhorses feature two sawing grooves and a built-in ruler on top.  Rubber anti-slip feet on the bottom keep the unit stable.  They fold flat for easy transportation and storage.

Bench Vise

I stumbled across this deal at Sportsman’s Guide — strange place to buy a vise, I know. You can get this KR Tools 3-1/2″ cast iron bench vise for $5 when you apply the code “SH638” at checkout. Rated at 8,000 PSI, the vise features replaceable steel jaws, dual-locking 360-degree swivel base, chrome-plated handle, and a striking anvil on the top. It weighs about ten pounds, which makes shipping about $5 to most locations.

Amazon’s got another deal/steal for us: a Milwaukee 1/4″-sheet palm sander for $30, including free shipping.  The lightweight 3A motor generates 14,000 orbits per minute.  An ergonomic body design with tactile rubber on top gives more control with less hand fatigue, and pad cushioning reduces swirl marks and ensures a smoother finish.  The integrated vacuum port fits either 1-1/4 or 2-1/4-inch vacuum attachments.
