I love great deals on tools. I have some 18v dewalt stuff for rare need for power or high chuck speed, otherwise I absolutely love my small compact ridgid 12v drills. I had 2 of the small ridgid 12v drills and one 12v compact gun (that never gets used, the trigger is sensitive and tends be a bit touchy). Well, I left one of my 12v drills at a customer’s house. A couple weeks went by and could not find it. Frustrated I began shopping on Ebay for a replacement since I was down to just one 12v drill and one battery. I managed to win a bid on a auction for 34.00 plus 10 shipping for one 12v drill, one 12v charger and two 12v batteries. Just got the package yesterday and all is in good working order, even built some cabinets with the drill last night, worked great. Better, my wife told me to call my customer, sure enough they had my drill and other battery at their home so I can get that back now. Now we have 3 of those 12v drills and 4 12v batteries and 2 of the 12v chargers.

Great deals! Happy woodworking and happy holidays everyone.

This is my new addition.

Looks like a good deal Jerry. My problem is the duty and taxes when it crosses the border. The extra charges cost as much as the product :(

Hey Bruce, That is not good. I would hate that. What happens when a friend or family member decides to mail you gift package or something? Hmmm, that is interesting. Also, how is your weather, I grew up in IN but have never made to Canada in my lifetime. Jerry
