    Yup, I bought one recently, and it's been great so far.

    My local store never has the flashlights in stock...

    The tape measure does seem to be good. Used mine the other day. It's very readable!! But if they allowed us to pick which freebie, I would take the gloves almost every time unless I needed another flashlight or screwdriver set.
    I never get the gloves. The fall apart as soon as you use them. If you like dotted gloves, order a free FarmTek catalog. You get a free pair with every catalog request.

    My local store stocks the flashlights behind the counter. You have to know to ask for them.

    Picked up the ATV, Golfcart, & Mini Tire Changer today that I mentioned in another thread - normally $49.99 but the 25% coupon brought it down $37.50:

    ATV, Golfcart, & Mini Tire Changer

    I have three small tires to do soon (two on the tow-behind spreader, and one on a caster wheel on the ZTR) and I'll report back on how it works out.

    Also grabbed the Circular Saw Blade Sharpener which was on sale for $49.99 (reg. $69.99)

    120 Volt Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

    From reading the reviews this one may require a little tweaking and modification to get it set up properly. I have numerous blades (7 1/4" circular saw, double blade counter-rotating metal saw, 10" cutoff saw, brush blade for my Stihl brushcutter) so if I can get it setup and functioning it ought to be worthwhile.

    Thanks for the info... I ordered a catalog.
    IT'S NOT THE TOOL, IT'S HOW YOU USE IT!!

    You are on the internet, if you (Google) search then you'll probably find what you're looking for!!
