Hey Guys,

Woot has this set for sale today only.
I saw slickdeals had this same set back in 2014.

Reviews look decent from Amazon.

Here is the link:

Nope, it just means he knows what he is talking about when it comes to tools. You want quality drill bits, be prepared to spend the money! With this set you get what you pay for!

This is great. I think I understand why some people say things fall out and get all mixed up. Every section has a piece of foam included in it. If you remove that, that's when all the pieces fall out. The same thing happened with a socket set I bought about 5 years ago. I just leave the foam in and it keeps everything in place with that little extra space filler. Plus, it keeps things nicer looking so each time you close the lid, all the metal pieces don't bang into each other.

The plastic casing is solid enough to hold everything. The handle on the top is iffy, but I don't think I would really carry the case around using it. There are two side handles that allow you to hold the case (duh) from the side. Which is a lot easier to walk with while transporting it, so I just ignore the top handle.

I haven't used the bits yet, but they seem pretty sturdy. The coming months we will see.

Feel free to do so. I saw the Portamate set on a lightning deal on Amazon for $63 then saw this for $59 that is the same set so I came to Slickdeals to make sure no one was falling for the lightning deal price.

Didn't want to get hammered by not posting all of the details of a new deal just perfect.

Not saying that it is a great deal either. Wasn't my intention.
