IIRC you were one of the folk who put me on the path to Ryobi stuff. Cheap is relative; at $130 for the drill/impact driver I could have bought 5 HF units and thrown them through 5 separate windows.

I just got a RIDICULOUS deal on a Bosch 18v cordless set. Impact, Drill, Sawzall, and a badass led work light, two batteries, and a charger for $180. The next week they put the right price on the set- its supposed to be $380! SCORE!!!

Reminder for all of the tool shoppers out there be it Horror Fright or name brand big box store, this weekend is Father's Day. If you have the disposable income or credit limit, it's a great time to go shopping.

A couple of years ago I got a call from my next door neighbor asking me to get over to Lowes and help him NOW. Turned out that some mo-ron had mislabeled a compressor that was supposed to sell for $799 as $199. He asked the clerk at the register to verify the price and got told that she'd sell it for what it said on it. 200 gallon 10hp upright. We were loading it onto his pickup when the manager literally ran out of the store and over to us to explain that there had been a mistake. My friend readily agreed and explained to the manager that it was his mistake, not ours, and we drove off.

Nicely done and well played!! I like this friend of yours!!

I have a watch that is similar. It stopped working and I took it back to the store. Had a hell of a time with the return; couldn't find it in the system. Turns out it was a $400 watch that they mis-rung as $150. They would refund the $150 not the $400. So now I have a dead $400 watch that I'll get around to sending out for repair oneday someday.
