Nice. Thanks for the heads up.

Check out the Pass and Seymour stuff while you're there, too.

Greenlee and Ideal at the home centers are NOT the same Greenlee and Ideal tools of 4-5 years ago. Not by a long shot.

I'll stick with Klein and Knipex from my supply house thank you.

Lowe's doesn't sell Klein anymore. Home Depot is now the "official" home improvement retailer of Klein Tools.

Well I learned something new today. I haven't been to either store in several months and it has been even longer than that since I have been down the Elec. isle.

You don't do any sidework apparently? Or even home improvement projects?

I do both, but the past few months have been very busy.

In seattle, that deal is not in effect according to their website.

Perhaps somebody can get some clarification on that...

I don't get it.
What about a supply house and lumber yard? I have several of both available locally.
Are the all gone everywhere else?

I was actually coming on here to post this. They also have some discounts on some other things from 10/21-10/23. Here's a link to their flyer:

http://www.lowesforpros.com/sites/de...ctober_cae.pdf

Noteables:
20% off Irwin Hand Tools and Power Tool Accessories
10% off Studs
Lenox 13pc Hole Saw Kit for $70
15% off all Plastic and Metal Boxes
10% off 250' of 12-2 NM-B
10% off 250' of 12-2 MC

Also, if you've recently acquired a foreclosed home, Lowes is issuing 10% off coupons through this link:
https://www.lowesmoving.com/coupon/f...tm_campaign=RT

Some stores are letting you combine the discounts.

I'm seriously contemplating the Knipex Combo Kit they had for $89. The part # was 9K 00 80 47 D4A. Having trouble finding it online. I believe it was a pair of dikes, linesmans, and 3 screwdrivers. I believe it was the same one as this guy on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Knipex-989821U.../dp/B000X4PV0C

Where in NY does Lowes carry Knipex? Are they the SAME thing as in the supply house or lumber yard?

The hole saw kit sounds like a deal.

I'm central Long Island. I know they have them at the Hicksville, Farmingdale, and Garden City stores. Not sure about Bayshore or any other.

If you compare part #s from Lowes to your supply house and they match up, they should be the exact same thing then.

Supply houses close at 5 pm. HD and Lowes are open until 10 PM. Box stores are within five minutes of my house. Trade suppliers are not.

Lumber yards?? Haha. Only real carpenters and framers go there. If I need a lift of plywood and some LVL's I'll go to a lumberyard. For a few sheet of plywood I'll go to the box stores.

Look, it's all well and good to say "support your local supplier" but all of the major electrical suppliers in my area are now owned by big corporate conglomorates (Rexel, CED, Sonepar, etc) so they are no different than HD or Lowes in that regard. Oh, and their service is lousy too.

That hole saw kit is the arborless kind.

Well, I totally get that. Luckily for me my supply houses are all locally owned, and they give a crap about us.

Yep. Right on 107 where the Waldbaums used to be heading towards Hempstead Tpke, before you get to Central Ave. It's basically on the corner of South Oyster Bay Road and 107.

Wow. Flashback.
I used to work out of Bloomingdale Rd.

Remember the Farmer's Market?
