Just because you're not the DIY type doesn't mean you shouldn't have a good set of tool around. You never know when you'll need to tighten a screw, assemble furniture, or take care of any other minor issues around your home. But you do know that these things crop up from time to time.
Instead of calling your in-laws to borrow a tool set for the umpteenth time, why not invest in some decent tools for those occasional projects? This is a great time to start building your collection. Amazon's Deals of the Day feature a Black and Decker Drill Set for just $59.99. This drill/driver set comes with an impact drill and usually costs $100. We've never seen it drop so low in price, but this 40% discount will only be good for one day.
This drill set, from a trusted brand, is absolutely perfect for the casual user. It's powerful while being lightweight enough that you can use it comfortably. The drill has 11 different positions to tackle any project without stripping your screws, and the impact driver has an above average torque that is more than enough to handle most projects.
Plus, this set features the same interchangeable 20V batteries as many of Black and Decker's other power tools. If you own (or plan to buy) other tools in this family, you'll be able to swap out batteries between tools, making it easier to always have at least one charged and ready to go. This drill/driver set comes with the battery and a charger, as well as a double-ended driver bit and an impact driver.
Not in the market for a new drill right now, but still itching to shop? There are plenty of other sales you might like. Here are some of the best we found today:
Kindles and e-books galore
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Kindle, Amazon is offering $30 off the Kindle, Paperwhite and Voyage e-readers. The Paperwhite ($89.99 right now) is our favorite from the lot, but they're all great.
A highly rated waffle maker
A waffle maker is a must-have for anyone who likes making breakfast/brunch. This popular Hamilton Beach Flip Waffle Maker is only $40 right now (usually $50). With more than 1,200 reviews and 4.4 out of 5 stars, we're confident this gadget will give you plenty of reasons to host brunch every weekend.
A backup charger that fits in any bag or pocket
What's worse than a low battery when you won't be near a charger for a while? If you're sick of constantly playing phone battery chicken, maybe it's time to invest in a backup charger. RAVPower makes some of the best around, and they've got seven different options on sale right now. This ultra compact charger, for instance, is only $20 and can fast-charge two devices at once.
