A hot deal is a significant discount (including shipping) on DIY or workshop related tools, machines, clothing, books, lumber, or general interest items. Use your discretion. If you think a woodworker (carpenter, machinist, wrench monkey, whatever) would be interested, post it. Please include a link, if online, a description, and the price. The discount amount in % or $$ is appreciated but not required.

Examples:
eBay Buy It Now (BIN)
Amazon sales, Deal of the Day (DOTD), or Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD).
Sales or Coupons or Coupon Codes
Lowes/HD closeouts.
Craigslist finds

What is an Amazon Warehouse Deal? It is an item that has damaged packaging or the item itself may be damaged. It could have been dropped off a truck, punched with a fork lift, opened for a photograph, or a customer return. They are sold as used and the manufacturer warranty may be void. Most of the AWD I’ve bought were only damaged packaging but you are taking a risk. Note: just because they are sold as “used” does not mean they are actually used.

Amazon ‘2 Left’ Deals Occasionally there will be a super low price on a new item that says “Only 2 left in stock”. Once 1 is purchased, it jumps back to full price so it is often advantageous to go ahead and buy both at the reduced price. For example you might see a $50 item for $8, 2 Left. If you buy one, the last one jumps back to $50, but you can buy both for $8 each ($16 total). Edit; More often now they are ‘1 Left’ deals.

NOT hot deals:
20% off HF coupon, because they are available all the time.
Everyday cheap prices.
eBay auctions, because we don’t know the final price until the auction ends.
Your favorite or most useful tool.
Amazon “Just Launched” sellers with very low prices (scammer)
Amazon sellers that ask you to email first (scammer)

I will start…

I own one of these and they are heavy duty but don’t expect it to be square as received. You’ll probably have to do some tweaking.

Shop Fox D3070 Aluminum Square, 18-Inch

$6.80

This an Amazon Warehouse Deal, that means there is only one available at this price. If you click the link and there is nothing there, someone already bought it.

One of the best deals out there if you do a lot of shellac: Five gallons of 90% ethanol denatured alcohol for $50 with free shipping from Zoro.com. Did I mention free shipping?

For anyone in NW Washington (state): The Bellingham CL has a listing for a rotary phase converter, 10 hp rating, for $50. Admittedly, it looks a bit shabby, but the seller claims it works great.

I’d go for it myself, but my shop is about as full as I can tolerate. I’m aware of the advantages of 3 phase, but I’m getting along fine with what I have.

Sure. Might be nice to include the location so people don’t need to click if it isn’t near them.

Thought this looked like a pretty good deal on a DeWalt track saw kit:

DeWalt DC351SKL

Actually, two track saw kits:

I see good deals a lot but not too often great, hot deals. If I see a great deal, I’ll buy it and share with you later. This is a interesting tread.
