Tips on buying tools during Black Friday

  1. Go for the bundles like buy one get one free. Lowes and Home Depot offer this
  2. Kobalt is a Lowes brand and it is a good one. Higher quality than Rigid or RYobi
  3. Premium brands: Dewalt, Milwaukee, Makita, expensive but construction worker worthy. As in drop out of a moving truck and they will keep working
