Tool Giveaway with The Home Depot

Tool Giveaway with The Home Depot

Free Tools?

Who doesn’t love free tools? Earlier this year I started a deal with The Home Depot (Home Depot MotorSports). They send me a few tools once a quarter, and I check them out and review them what makes sense for Humble Mechanic. One of the main reasons I did this deal was to hook you guys up. I spent the last 15 plus years collecting tools for fixing cars, and for working around the house. Needless to say, I have a lot of tools. This deal with Home Depot gives me the chance to check out some stuff, and then give it away.

The Tools:

Here is more about the tools for this giveaway including links to The Home Depot

Husky Screwdriver Set (15 piece)

Husky Screwdriver Set (15 piece)

I bought this set of screwdrivers a while back. They have held up really well. They are strong, chemical resistant, and have a lifetime warranty. The set includes 8 flat blade, and 7 Phillips head screwdrivers and retails for $29.97 plus tax. There may or may not be a VW running around with a shift knob made from a handle of one of these screwdrivers. The package was opened to take photos.

Ridgid Brushless 18v Drywall Screwgun Kit 

Ridgid Brushless 18v Drywall Screwgun Kit 

As a mechanic I don’t really think I am qualified to properly review this tool. Doing drywall work is something I have done before. Today I am happy to pay someone else to do this stuff. This tool does allow Push-to-Drive for less noise and more run time. It also includes the collated attachment, 2 batteries, a charger, and a carry bag. I really do wish I had a use for this tool. The packaging was opened for photos


Milwaukee M12 Cordless Compact Inflator 

Milwaukee M12 Cordless Compact Inflator

I am going to be blunt here, the only reason I am giving this away is because I have one. And even with that I kinda want to keep it. This inflator is awesome! I use it all the time around the house. I toss it in the R32 for road trips. I also bring it to autoX events to set tires properly. It comes with attachments to inflate sports balls, and my kid’s giant beach ball. This one comes with 1 M12 battery. If you are not using the M12 platform you will need a charger. This tools was opened for pictures and used 2 times. The battery is not opened

Makita Sub-Compact Brushless Recipro Saw (tool only)

Makita Sub-Compact Brushless Recipro Saw (tool only)

This is a tool will probably come in handy. It’s small, about 12.5″ in length so it fits in spaces the full sized recip saws will not. It works on the Makita LXT 18v battery. So if you are a Makita tool user you are gold. The saw will do 0-3000 strokes per minute with a stroke length of 13/16. This is the tool only so you will need to have your own battery and charger. Again, perfect if you already use Makita tools. This one is brand new in the box.

    Would love the Milwaukee M12 cordless inflators great for road trips and biking trips.

    Facebook post shared BTW

    • Gregory Brown
      Gregory Brown says:

      I think the recip saw would be the best only because it is so compact that it fills a niche that other tools cannot fit.

      DAVID THOMAS says:

      Would love to get the Makita brushless saw. Gonna be giving to my dad. Great carpenter and and an even better father. Love the videos man. Keep it up!

  2. Matthew Hoistion
    Matthew Hoistion says:

    I would love the Milwaukee Inflator! As a technician, this would be really handy not only with work stuff but with projects around the house. It helps that I also have 6 other Milwaukee tools.

  3. Gregory Robinson
    Gregory Robinson says:

    I have *just* begun to use Milwaukee and that inflator is something I crave now that I am getting rid of my (very old) air compressor.

  4. Jason Chafin
    Jason Chafin says:

    I’ll take the tire inflator since I have 5 vehicles and hate my crappy 12v one that plugs in. I’ve been wanting one and almost ordered the Ryobi since I have a bunch of Ryobi stuff. I also have dewalt stuff and been thinking of tryin out this Milwaukee like.

  5. Eugenio Cebollero
    Eugenio Cebollero says:

    Screwdriver set. I live in a 2-story home which basically means if I need a screwdriver while I am upstairs the tool needed is likely in the garage. Of course, when I set out to work on the car, the tool needed is likely upstairs. This screwdriver set has the potential to save my marriage, my family, and keep me from losing my mind. A second screwdriver set is “Murphy’s Law” antidote. Of course, if I won a free screwdriver set, I would become the envy of my neighbors and in all likelihood find a third place to look for my missing tools. Thank you “Humble Mechanic” and “Home Depot” for partnering up on making people’s lives better! 🙂

  6. Andrew Piland
    Andrew Piland says:

    That cordless saw would be awesome! The corded thing I have now is a beast, but it is too big and heavy. And hell, who couldn’t use more screwdrivers? I’ll take ’em all!

  9. Anthony
    Anthony says:

    I would love to have the drywall power tool set. My father is a dry waller and has tought me a lot and aside from working on cars on the side, I love to do side jobs for people doing contracting and those tools would be perfect!

    LARRY READY says:

    Since I already have the previous 2 syles of Husky screwdrivers, one similar to Snap On and one the same as Craftsman I definitely would want a set of the new style.

    So…the screwdrivers!

  11. Jeff Tomacruz
    Jeff Tomacruz says:

    Any of them would be appreciated but why have something you don’t need or already have . But i can sure use that Milwaukee inflator , make things a lot easier for me .
    Have a Great day !

  12. Quentin Tyler Skanes
    Quentin Tyler Skanes says:

    That rigid drill set would go great for me at work in construction. Good tools are hard to find and they’re a bright enough color to be seen under houses.

  13. stephan emiliani

  25. Seth Riggle

    Dry wall screw gun kit. About to put drywall up in the basement. Would be major if I didn’t have to buy a screwgun.

  28. John Vazquez

  29. Christian Ferrara

  34. Mike J Flatland
    Mike J Flatland says:

    I’ll take the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Compact Infiltrator, It would replace the cigarette plugin in my car that is a POS because I’ve had it for a very long time.

  35. Michael MacKenzie
    Michael MacKenzie says:

    Man so call dibs on the inflator, this thing would save me the headache of running my little tire inflator from my booster pack, constantly having to reset the booster pack’s failsafe every 2 minutes… hopefully it would inflate faster too haha

  36. Jamie Gruetzmacher
    Jamie Gruetzmacher says:

    Id love to get that inflator, but I’ll tell you what, you keep it and hook me up with a shirt or hat or even just some stickers and I’d be happy

  37. Steven
    Steven says:

    • Charles
      Charles says:

      WOW so many comments. You guys are awesome. Winners have been emailed, I will make a post soon.

  38. Ryan
    Ryan says:

    Love your channel. Don’t own a VW but still check for your videos daily. Would be nice to have the inflator as I don’t have any yet. Keep up the good work!

  39. Matt way
    Matt way says:

    Seems like I’m in good company thinking that inflator looks cool. But my at home screwdriver set leaves a bit to be desired so….

  40. Stephan Schwan
    Stephan Schwan says:

    My moms laundry machine sprung a leak last week so I would love the drywall kit to help redo the wall behind it. Also have been looking to try some rigid stuff cuz iam looking for a new budget brand to offset some the milwaukee stuff I also have.

  41. Thomas
    Thomas says:

    Milwaukee M12 Inflator, I’m a field tech so everything I do happens off-road. And would be nice to have as a backup in case my on-board air dies. Since it controls the locks on my servicebed.

  42. Brian
    Brian says:

    May seem lame, but I’m all about the screwdriver set. I always seem to end up with these multi-bit drivers that seem like a good idea, but sometimes you just need to take it back to the basics.

  43. Kenny Nguyen
    Kenny Nguyen says:

    Just now entering the career industry and those screw drivers and inflator looks really useful for track days and or at work/hone

  44. Carlos Velazquez
    Carlos Velazquez says:

    Awesome! An wireless tire inflator. That I will use a lot. For my bicycles and my motorcycle and for my wife car. Those screwdrivers are the best bang for the $ ive got. I use them every day. The only problem I have with them is that they get lost easily in the engine bay.

  45. Andres Eduardo Leon
    Andres Eduardo Leon says:

    Hey man! I would the screwdriver set. I am starting out with mechanics and trying to build up my tool set so this screwdriver set would fit perfectly! Love your videos!

  46. Charlie
    Charlie says:

    I would like the screwdriver set. I build transmissions and the flatheads come in handy on snap ring removal and intallation.

  47. Cameron Bay
    Cameron Bay says:

    Hey humble mechanic! I would love to get the cordless Milwaukee air compressor. I use to have a bulky air compressor but the darn pump broke and I need a new compressor and something like this would be great. Thanks for your consideration? ??

  48. Haris Karić
    Haris Karić says:

    Always working something on car or around the house (that’s probably reason why I started following your channel) you helped me few times with my repairs, anyway this screwgun kit would come handy.

  49. Lad Lubanovich
    Lad Lubanovich says:

    Honestly I’d really use the screwdriver set more than anything else. Just started working at my dad’s shop and my screw driver set is all second hand and beat up.

  50. Shander Muñiz
    Shander Muñiz says:

    I’d like those screew drivers I do need and update cause mine are damage by using them as mini pry bars ?

  51. Filipe Silva
    Filipe Silva says:

    That compact inflator would come in handy for road trips to car shows and what not. No spare tire in my Mk3 and the stock one in my B5 isn’t the same size as my summer wheels. 16″ vs 18″. Add a bottle of fix-a-flat and a tire patch kit and you are good to go.

  52. Andrei
    Andrei says:

    Ridgid Brushless 18v Drywall Screwgun Kit would be awesome.

    Might finally get to all the drywall projects I should have taken care of a while ago

  53. Dummer
    Dummer says:

    Makita saw please.
    Can you do a video on the inflator to show how long it takes for the inflator to inflate a fully deflated tyre and how long the battery last please.

  54. Josh Lull
    Josh Lull says:

    Milwaukee m12 compact inflator for me pls and ty. I seen you use it in the R32 videos and it looks like it works great

  55. Steve
    Steve says:

    I’d love the inflator, you always need one when you don’t have one, and…I don’t have one! If that isn’t available, the reciprocating saw would be pretty sick too.

    Thanks for the giveaway Charles and HD

  56. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    The screwdrivers would be perfect, I’ve managed without a decent set (lots of mooching) for too long. I’ve got the Ryobi for electric and I like to stay consistent for battery ease, m12’s I love for 12V but got an 18V inflator already

  57. Jack Alger
    Jack Alger says:

    I would love any of the tools I’m young and just starting my collection and am going to be attending trade school for automotive repair this year

  58. Crispin
    Crispin says:

    I would have to say the two that would be most useful would be either the reciprocating saw or the inflator cause I could use them at work. But every thing looks decent and I guess even though I just buaght a set of screw drivers you can never have to many of those. And the screw gun would come in handy around the house when i need to do dry wall. So if win any I would be happy.

  59. Carl
    Carl says:

    I’ve never seen the collated attachment for a screw gun before so I just watched a clip from Rigid on YouTube. It’s wild, basically a chain feed screw gun. I just bought a house that needs work so I am not at a point where I can pay someone to do all the drywall and man that is just what I need!

  60. Beanz Forster
    Beanz Forster says:

    The Milwaukee M12 Cordless Compact Inflator would be awesome for my autocross car being that i dont have a 12v power outlet any more in the car and i have to lug along my jump pack to inflate my tires. It would be a bit easier with this.

  61. Braulio Cabral
    Braulio Cabral says:

    I would love the 18v Drywall Screwgun, as im about to start a home project this would make life 100x easier!

  62. Charles
    Charles says:

    I would love the Ridgid drywall screwgun kit. I just purchased my first home and it needs some repairs. This kit would truely help with some of the much needed updates.

  63. Marc Von Hahmann JR
    Marc Von Hahmann JR says:

    The Makita recip. saw would really help out with the car project I’ve been working on. Thanks for all that you do!

  64. Matt
    Matt says:

    Would love to have the Milwaukee inflator! I’ve got a 95 Mustang that’s been sitting in my Dads girlfriends garage for 8 years. She really wants her garage back and I really need to get it running and back on the road again. The stang has flat tires so the Milwaukee pump would really help get things rolling!

  65. Kenneth Ray Henderson
    Kenneth Ray Henderson says:

    All would be cool.. But the screw gun would be all some when I start doing the drywall in my house I’m building. But that inflator sounds like it would be cool to keep in the shop to do atvs and motorcycle tires with..

  66. Rick Butler
    Rick Butler says:

    I’m retired so affording new or replacement tools is difficult. Retired but still DIYing. Right now I’m replacing the clutch on my Chevy Cruze.

    I would trulylike and enjoy the Makita recip saw as my old Milwaukee (probably the original) had seen much better days.

    I enjoy your vids and appreciate this opportunity.


  67. Dustin Homan
    Dustin Homan says:

    I would love the Milwaukee Inflator. I’m starting auto tech school soon, and my tool collection is severely lacking. Plus, the only inflator I have is a 9V Harbor Freight inflator that quit working two years ago. If my tire goes flat, I’m screwed. Haha!

  68. Tony Casey
    Tony Casey says:

    Would love to have the Milwaukee inflator. I just picked up some new Milwaukee stuff and am a big fan. Definitely not a bad idea to keep in my vw.

  69. Andreas
    Andreas says:

    The screwdrivers would be a pretty neat addition to my toolbox. (Currently only have sockets and a ratcheting wrench) 🙂

  70. Ryan Sander
    Ryan Sander says:

    The inflator would be great! The screwdriver set made me realize I have no good screwdrivers in my set.. still using my chewed up one from when my lab was a pup and got hungry.. so screwdriver set is an easy second!

  71. Amy
    Amy says:

    Sorry I’m late—I’ve been busy manually sawing everything so I don’t have much time for anything else. But I’d have all the time in the world wth that makita saw!

  72. Harris
    Harris says:

    Such a great article it is! I am beginner what tools I have to get for my starting my handyman carrier. i love to hear things from you I have learnt a lot here about the tools in this article!!
