I'm passing through the local Wal-Mart and toward the front of the store
they always have close-out items in shopping carts with severely discounted
prices on them. I'm sort of looking when I see a Black & Decker 14.4
Cordless drill, 85th anniversary edition. Hmmmm.......Original price was
$95 (as seen under the discount sticker) and they've got it marked down to
$50. So I'm thinking, hmmm....maybe, I could use an extra drill just for
drilling, and use my DeWalt 18V for driving screws.
Then I catch the price on the front of the basket - $35. So in the cart it
goes, I figure no matter how crappy it is, it's gotta be worth $35, hell
it's made out of aluminum (even comes with a polishing cloth).
So is this a good gloat? Are the B&D tools worth anything now a days? My
dad still has a B&D drill which he bought 40 years ago and still works fine.
Just wondering what the opinion of the group is.
