The BEST Way To Store Your Bits!

My screwdriver bits are usually all over the place. I have always had various bits in different cases or bit rails, some bits just rolling around in one of my tool cart drawers. Its always a mess and I can never find the one I need…. UNTIL NOW! Using these ammo boxes as bit holders is AMAZING! I bought 2 of these boxes, all my bits fit in them, I can organize them all by type and size… PERFECT! The first link below is the smaller box mentioned in the video, the second box is the larger one mentioned last in the video.

Extremely Discounted Tools On Amazon


It is not uncommon for Amazon to have select tools and hardware items extremely discounted. I am talking discounts of up to 90% off. Typically I do not post these discounts because stock is always severely limited, many times they may only have 1 available. I hate to send a notification to literally thousands of people when only 1 will be lucky enough to snag the deal.

Below is a list of some highly discounted tools and hardware type products. I do not expect the prices to last long but I am hoping a list form will spread the “wins” among more people.

I’ll try to update list every so often, maybe weekly.

(You can’t always trust the pictures. Read the listings. Some of these are like a box of chocolates…)

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…)

New Milwaukee High Speed Cordless Ratchet (Which Milwaukee Ratchet Is Best For You?)


Recently Milwaukee released a new FUEL high speed cordless ratchet so I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the various cordless ratchets Milwaukee offers. For the purposes of this post we will be looking at the 3/8″ ratchets. As of right now Milwaukee has the original brushed ratchet, the FUEL brushless ratchet, the extended reach FUEL ratchet and now the FUEL high speed ratchet. The table below has some of the relevant specs of each ratchet.

Harbor Freight To Start Selling Geeni Smart Home Products

Harbor Freight recently sent out an e-mail touting their new line of smart home products. The new items are made by Geeni. The interesting thing about this is 99% of products sold at Harbor Freight are their own brands. Geeni as far as I can tell is not. Geeni has existed for a few years and its parent company Merkury Innovations states it has been around for nearly 20.

At some point Harbor Freight decided they wanted to get into smart home products. Many of these products are produced in China, most Harbor Freight products are produced in China. Seems to me it would be very easy for them to source these products. However it looks as though they are sourcing through another company. This is not their typical business model so I think it will be interesting to see if they continue doing this with other lines of products or if this is just a one off. It is possible that this untypical outsourcing is more related to app development or app integration than anything related directly to the products.

Because Geeni products are available at other retailers such as Amazon I wanted to compare what Harbor Freight is currently offering with the prices of those same products on Amazon. Check out the list below.

*At the time of posting you CAN use 20% coupons on Geeni products.

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.)
