Nice deal! Sad I missed it

They have an entire kit, too Matticus91 with diff and subframe bushings for $300. Not quite the great deal it probably was on Black Friday, but an extremely good price (Turner solid bushings are $300 for just the subframe bushings, and another $200 for the diff bushings) regardless. I might be renting the HPA bushing tool at some point, maybe we could share

I'm not sure where the comment on HF torque wrench accuracy comes from. Here is one test that provides a pretty favorable result:

https://www.hotrod.com/articles/ccrp...rench-testing/

I've seen others including a comparison to Snap on where they were not much different.

For ~$10, I think they are great. Also you have to consider the variability in the friction of the threaded fastener. What you really want is a certain stretch or stress in the fastener which provides a clamping force in the joint. But when you turn the fastener, the rotational force is resisted by friction which varies from fastener to fastener. That variation is far bigger than any inaccuracy in a HF torque wrench. Long way of saying the HF is plenty good enough.

I support O2Pilot remarks about Milwaukee M12. Went to those 3 yrs ago and work well with my remodeling work (except circ saw - has some limits). About the only thing I do not have is impact wrench, but Xmas is coming.

Added - TTI makes Ryobi, Rigid & Milwaukee tools (and owns Milwaukee). Note that all three sold at HD but not Lowes. That order pretty much sums up their quality, as well, based on my experience and discussions with folks from Milwaukee/TTI.

Not quite, the new IR is #1 and the new Milwaukee #2, even the prior gen Milwaukee & IR ones are better than the Dewalt.

I have the slightly larger version of this set and it's actually my main set now. I absolutely love the tools for the price.

I carry these, no need for deep and shallow. One size fits all.

I bought them on a Christmas deal from NAPA years ago when I worked there. IIRC the 1/4 drive set was $12 and the 3/8 was $15. I think they still have that deal from time to time.

Black Friday has been dead, but there are great holiday deals still to be enjoyed. Take this 5,000-lb QuickJack for $999 at Costco for example:
