25% Off & Free Flashlight - Exp 04122014 and the original sheet.

To print the individual coupons I open them in the Windows Photo Viewer, hit Ctrl+P, select Wallet Size (9 pics) on right side scroll, uncheck "Fit picture to frame", change it to 9 copies and print.

They come out the perfect size. You can also do 4 & 4 if your eyes are bad.

For those who got in on the free cutoff tool a while back, how powerful of a compressor does it actually need? I'm fairly ignorant re: air tools, but the required specs seem to call for way more power than a typical DIYer will have. Wondering if I can get away with my little compressor (Sorry, don't recall stats, but a little $60 cheapo.) for short cuts.

5 CFM @ 90 PSI

Most likely you will be disappointed I think with a small compressor, even for short cuts.
Get the cheap electrical one.

Yeah, I saw the reqs, just curious if that's for sustained operation. My nailers reqs are above my compressors capabilities, but I manage.

Ultimately though, you're probably right, might as well throw the extra few bucks at the electric.

Correct. Sustained operation. Meaning once your tank is empty the compressor won't be able to keep up. It'll keep on pumping but won't keep the tool spinning. It's like trying to flush a house toilet. You can keep pressing down on the handle but not much water/force is going down the drain.

Nailers with small compressors are fine because they use very small amount of air each trigger pull and are not in continuous use and most tops out using 2-3 CFM of air.

Thanks for the info, that's a good analogy. Re: nailers, I'm wondering if the same principle might apply to the cutoff, if used in (Very.) short, (Very!) infrequent bursts. I may just try it out anyway; pretty sure I have a $6 Q sitting around somewhere. If nothing else, might convince my wife a new compressor is in order for Xmas laugh out loud

It's cheap and has great reviews. Just get it and play with it.

Remember after you press the trigger on a cutoff tool that's when air starts to spin it from zero to max rpm. You need reserve air just to get the thing spin to max rpm THEN you start to cut with it.

Definitely have her buy you a better compressor either way Big Grin

In the wiki, there's a link to HF coupons via the Salt Lake City Tribune. Check the 10/20 coupons, the second page has a $6.99 coupon. I frequently have trouble getting them to load; use the Print Preview button to actually pull them up.

There's a lot of hidden gems in there. No Purchase freebie Qs and the like. Worth digging through.

You need a big tank, and a big hose.

I've 2 and they both get up to speed..... and stop when I put them against steel. I need to play around with larger hoses first.

I was wondering if anyone has an up to date coupon for the cordless drill and flashlight combo. I think I am finally just going to buy it I need a light duty drill and figure hell if it comes with a flashlight that's just extra. Also has anyone used the drill is it decent at all for the money. I am thinking of putting up some of the fake wood paneling that's not to thick and I figure it should be able to handle that no problem also I need to install some accessories to my kayak.
I have one for 19.99 expires 12/22. But I don't have a scanner. Can take you a cell phone pic if you want. I don't have that drill but I have an older 18 volt from HF that works just fine. Picked it up on clearance dirt cheap, and it had a one hour charger which I loved. Still stays out in the garage for when I'm too lazy to go inside and grab the craftsman.
