    Bessey/ Irwin closeouts

    Hearing Home Depot is closing out their lines of Irwin clamps. They will be stocking Bessey's soon. This causes Lowe's to closeout their Bessey's. Haven't been to either so don't know for sure, but if you have one close might be worth looking in to.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    It wasn't that long ago that the HD's here closed out their Bessey inventory and brought in the Irwin line to replace it. Are you sure whoever told you that didn't have it backwards?

    Checked today. It's true. I even got an email for Bessey while back that they are going to HD

    Lowes around here are selling off slow moving Bessey stuff. Each store has had different items on sale. You can go online to Lowes.com and choose your local store to see the pricing. Many items not discounted at all, others at 5,10,15,20% off their normal prices. I noticed that when the store gets low on an item, they seem to be lifting the sale. Seems like an inventory reduction, more than discontinuing them.

    The K-Body Revos need to be marked 20% off to be a deal - 24" at $31.18. Otherwise, Zorotools.com is just as good.

    Lowes had a few Bessey items that were low priced already. They sell the Klick Clamps at their normal price for half of everyone else.
    These were $8.54: http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/200...n-Clamp-8.aspx

    or :http://www.amazon.com/Bessey-KLI3-01...ssy+clickclamp

    I have a half dozen local Lowes and they have been mostly picked through so IF they discount them more, there will only be a few odd items left.

    HD around here all replaced their Jorgensen with Irwin a couple months ago. Never saw the Jorgensen discounted. It had been a couple weeks since I had walked past that aisle, but one day they were just all gone.

    My local tool dealer just had their spring sale. Jorgensen was one of the very few items not marked 20% off.
