Prime Day Deals
« on: July 16, 2018, 06:31 PM »
Just purchased Bosch GSR12V-140FCB22 12V Max Flexiclick 5-In-1 Drill/Driver System for $120.

The Amazon servers must be melting down because I get errors all over the place when searching for other deals.

Thank you @Ajax! I almost pulled the trigger on one of those a few weeks ago on ebay. Just ordered one for myself.

I've been trying to buy some tools, but I haven't been able to get past the Amazon home page.
Don't think they were ready for this.

It's the Universe spiting Amazon for having "prime day" but seams like every year it's never on a prime  day.   Never understand this, why not the 11th, 13th, 17th, 19th, etc of the month.  I have my issues with Amazon, but this is definitely up there on my list of reasons not to like Amazon.

Just go to a local store and support them,  if you can't get past the front door of your local store, they don't need your business at that time.

I tried many times to check out deals but never got past the OOPS page with dogs.  Gave up and never looked back.

I was also trying to check out some of the deals right around 3pm yesterday, but I kept getting stuck in the loop of trying to "Shop all Deals" only to be kicked back to the same page.  I gave up.

This morning everything was fixed so I was able to check some of the deals with the Amazon Shopping App on my phone.  I found some Anker battery bank chargers, but to my dismay I saw they were selling the older version of the models for a discount.  I'm not interested in that.

I think the whole Prime Day thing is for the most part, much ado about nothing.

Now I have the quandary of wanting a flexi-click or PS 22 brushless. Flexi-click owners, how useful are they? Would you buy it again?

I really like my Flexi-click.  It's got plenty of power and the 90 degree chuck helped me screw in some pocket screws in a rather tight space on the planter boxes I made.  I would buy it again.

In Germany they had the green Bosch PBS75 AE set for 90€.

I had been eyeing a belt sander for some time and with that price and the positive reviews on the Bosch, I could not justify spending more on something else or less on something cheaper made. ;)

Other than that, I found the Prime Day deals as underwhelming as the last years...

My Flexiclick has become one of the most useful tools in my arsenal.  I find myself using the offset chuck very frequently and the right angle chuck is great.  For me, the price to value ratio far exceeded the competition.  I have systainerized it though as the little soft case that it is delivered in is too small for my liking.  I'd buy it again and probably will as a gift to my son.

I just bought my third one. I have 2 in my work truck. I will now have one in the shop.

Buy both. Swap the FlexiClick transmission into the brushless driver and now you have what should have been made. A brushless FlexiClick with a belt clip.

My storage setup looks almost identical! I keep my Bosch D-Tect 120 and GLM50c in there too though.
I love the FC and tbh after using it for a while I don't care it isn't brushless. It has plenty of power for a 12v tool and the weight is just enough to make it feel solid. I actually prefer using it with the smaller 2.0 or 2.5Ah batteries as it is so well balanced when you hold it. The angle attachment is great and so is the off-center one, that one has been far more useful than I thought it'd be. Just need a few more hex mount drill bits.

@Dick Mahany - Is that setup in a Systainer 2?  Any idea if it fits into the Systainer 1, without attic lid of course?

I came close on the Flexi but my CXS is far from worn out and the batteries aren't really that bad.

I'm sure I would use an eccentric chuck if I had one but I've managed to muddle through.  The thing is that the right angle on the CXS is so compact that it's kind of like an eccentric.

If I didn't have a CXS oh boy would I have jumped on it.  It sat there in an open tab in my browser all evening.  But in the end, no.  And when I looked this morning it was gone.

Appears to be available for backorder now. Estimated delivery is late July or early August.

@RustE the Flexiclick will fit into a Sys1 although items can't be stood on end as in a Sys2 setup.  The Sys1 would make an ideal compact solution.  I took a few photos to show it better.  One could still add an attic lid to the Sys1 as there is room.

@Dick Mahany - Thanks for the pictures!  That's pretty much what I had in mind.  Now to find some foam to make it happen.
