10 Tools You Should Never Leave Home Without! (Building A Car Emergency Kit)

One of the entries in the last Struggleville Loot Box giveaway was to answer a question. What is something every car on the road should have in it? Over 600 of you answered the question so below is a list of the top 10, along with some honorable mentions. (When we used to do top 10 lists more often people would sometimes get confused. Number 10 is the tenth most popular and number 1 is the most popular. From 10 to 1…)

Woot Is Turning 16 And Celebrating With AMAZING Deals And Giveaways!

Lately we have posted several deals from Woot however this week is special because Woot is celebrating their 16th birthday by having a giveaway and some pretty AMAZING deals. For anyone who is not yet aware Woot is an Amazon company which means Prime members get free shipping on any deals they snag on Woot.

The first thing to know about this birthday extravaganza is that Woot is giving away 16 Bags of Crap. (Their words not mine.) Not sure I would classify it as crap since each winner is getting a $100 Amazon gift card and a $100 Woot coupon card among other things. This giveaway is going on until July 19, 2020 at 4pm CST. Click here to enter!

Woot also has their “Deal-O-Meter” where users are able to work together to unlock cheaper prices on specific items. The latest Deal-O-Meter unlocked a weighted blanket for just $15.99, check it out. It looks like Woot is having 2 more Deal-O-Meters going on the 15th starting at 11am CST, you can use the same link to access those.

Tuesday the 14th may be the most interesting of the birthday party. Tuesday is what Woot calls Totally Fun Pricing (WTF). Here is what they say about it, “We’ll launch FOUR products with extremely-limited quantities for $1, then keep raising the price and adding quantities over the next hour or so, until we’re sold out.” I’m assuming details will be on the Woot homepage. (They are going to do the same thing on Wednesday.) You know I will be sitting on my computer refreshing the page to see what I might be able to snag for $1.

Woot has some other neat things going on this week, check out this post on their site for details on the other promotions.

Don’t forget to check out all the latest Tool & Garden deals on Woot, updated daily.

And all of the latest Woot deals we have posted.

New Struggleville Forum Is Open!

The all new Struggleville forum is now OPEN! Share deals both related to tools and not, share your latest pickups, talk about your shop and current projects. Hang out with some like minded people while saving mountains of cash!

I have always avoided the YMMV type of deals on the main portion of this site because they can be hard to find in stores and therefore irrelevant to many people. I know some people love “the hunt” of YMMV deals and you can certainly get some AMAZING deals if you happen to find a store with the item in stock. That being said I will start posting YMMV deals and they will all appear on the forum!

In addition to the deals section we also have a shop talk section. Post your tool hauls, your new tool pick ups, ask questions, answer polls, share what you are working on. Its the home for anything to do with the shop or garage.

We have a Youtube section. If you see a tool, automotive or home improvement related Youtube video that you think others would enjoy feel free to share it! And if you are a Youtube creator you can post your own related videos there too!

The last section we have is the “Hiding From The Wife” section. This is the no rules (ok, maybe some rules.) section of the forum. Share a nice rant, talk current events, sports… let everyone know what you had for dinner…. anything you need to get off your chest is welcome.


Inch To Millimeter Printable Conversion Chart (SAE To MM)

The mixture of SAE and metric fasteners can be a real head ache. First you have to determine which is meant to be used on the fastener then you have to hope you have that wrench or socket. Many of the sizes are actually interchangeable… or close enough to work in many instances. Below is a conversion chart that may help you out. So the next time you can’t find a 15mm you will know that you can probably use a 19/32. (Its the one that looks brand new, almost like its never been used before.)

Equifax Owes Millions of Consumers $125, Are You One?

Remember back in 2017 when Equifax got hacked and over 140 million people had their private information compromised? After one of the biggest data breaches in history Equifax was forced to compensate consumers who were affected.

However, how is someone supposed to know whether their information was compromised or not? You’d think a company that is built on collecting personal data on all of us would certainly have a reasonable way to get a hold of all 140+ million people who were affected. Unfortunately it is up to you to find out if Equifax owes you $125.

The silver lining is they set up a website where you can enter your last name and the last 6 digits of your social security number and it will instantly tell you if you are owed any money from Equifax.
