The act of building or fixing something with power tools—much like the act of dialing the police as a friend attempts juggling with four chainsaws—is a positive way to keep idle hands busy. Keep hands safely occupied with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of tools and hardware at Direct Tools Factory Outlet in Calhoun and Commerce.
Direct Tools Factory Outlet decks out sheds and tool belts with new and reconditioned tools and hardware from brands such as Ryobi, Homelite, Milwaukee, Hoover & Dirt Devil. Remove dirt and crumbs from surfaces with the Dirt Devil corded pet hand vac ($39.99) or resize out-of-control indoor ferns with a Homelite reconditioned electric chainsaw ($44.99). The blemished right-angle drill by Ryobi ($55.99) can help to piece together projects, as can the store's assortment of discontinued, reconditioned, and factory-blemished power tools and outdoor equipment. Direct Tools Factory Outlet's products, unlike imaginary friends for sale at a flea market, come with a warranty that lasts at least one year.
