I would have said that was an awesome deal then i realized each item was $49.99 and had to be bought separately, not one package for the price... sigh... PASS.

So as not to confuse anyone, these are each sold separately for $50 each. You don't get all 3 unless you pay for all 3.

Worx saws get good reviews on Amazon, apparently.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

BEST WOOT EVAR ... wait, no, $50 *each*. Didn't we have a 4-pack with these and a flashlight for a relatively good price not that long ago?

The tools are pretty good, but you can go get yourself corded and significantly more powerful versions just about anywhere for less coin. Pass on this one.

Another thing to pay attention to, the jig-saw comes with only one battery pack, the rest come with two. So if you're looking at the jig-saw, you might want to pick up one of the other two anyway, as it'd be more time saving to have two chargers and three batteries, vs 1 charger and one battery, which takes an hour to charge.

Seems the batteries themselves sell for about $30 each; definitely want the two battery deals!

I haven't looked to see what batteries would cost at Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, or Ace, but I imagine it would be in the $30-50 range, each. So the saws with 2 batteries look more and more like a good deal. But only if you need one!

Oh, you get to choose. I thought they just sent you some random saw. This way is much better.

I wonder how well the circular saw works and how long it'll cut for on one battery? The reciprocating saw looks pretty good, as it has an orbital cutting action, which really cuts down on the time it takes to cut through stuff and makes it way more effective.

I'm almost wanting to bite on the circular saw. Uhh....Uhh.... oh, maybe not. I'm not really using these in my profession and a cordless will never stand up to a corded saw, in terms of power and runtime.

I bought all 3. You get 3 tools, 5 batteries and 3 chargers. Looks like a good deal to me!

Bought the 4 piece set in December, just added the jig saw. I now have 5 tools, three batteries, and 2 chargers for less than $160. They're not commercial grade tools but then they didn't cost $550 either.

Packs of nicads are in self destruct mode from day one. You won't get much life unless you use them every day and even then nicads are the the worst rechargeable cell available for tool usage.

I got the whole multi pack a while back and they aren't bad tools for the price. I've used everything from the kit but the light. I've put in a wide pine floor with the rotary and jig, and cut out some counters + cabinets with the reciprocal. The reciprocal feels underpowered but the jig and rotary work quite well.

Woot has suckered me 37 times since August 2006

Please Note: The jig saw only comes with one battery. The other two saws have two batteries each. I would have bought the jig saw if it came with two batteries. The circular saw in most of these cordless sets is really just good enough for a trim saw. Don't expect to cut 1/2" plywood sheets.

How much jig sawing are you people doing that you need 2 fully charged 18v batteries?
???

I've had an electric jig saw for years and can't remember ever using it for more than 5-10 minutes at any given time

No one seems to have mentioned that the circular saw doesn't have a battery charger listed. That has to be a typo...

I got the 4 piece set that was on here a while before Christmas. The tools are great. Not $50 a piece great, especially considering I got the whole set for $100. But still great. If this 3 set was $50 I'd be making a grab right about now.

NiCd's work great for power tools. I have a set of Ryobi's that have been used more than you average do-yourselfer for close to 7 years.

From Dan's data:
http://dansdata.blogsome.com/2009/02/08/i-run-my-thinkpad-from-a-leclanche-cell/

"You hear this all the time - it’s not right out of left field like the bit about NiCds still being in common use - but it’s not actually true. NiCds are actually known for their very long shelf life. If they’ve been on the shelf for a year then most of the charge will have leaked away, but even if they’ve been on the shelf for ten years you’ll probably just be able to give ‘em a charge and put ‘em to work."

For the circular saw, it says:

Cutting capacity (wood): 90° 1 5/8”; 45° 1 3/16”

So, I would just be able to cut a 2 x 4 with this? (2 x 4 are not really 2" deep for those who want to bring that up).

I am guessing that "capacity" is the depth of the blade below the sole plate, or better said, the total depth of cut.
This may or may not be what you could achieve in a real world situation.

Cordless vs. corded runtime . . . DUH!

Corded tools are great within the limited length of your properly rated extension cord. Cordless tools work well beyond that range!

I own both corded and cordless tools (although none of this brand), they each work well for their designed applications. I generally grab the cordless ones first due to convenience.

Cordless tools can be safer, I've never heard of anyone cutting through the power cord on their cordless tool. I won't let the wife use my corded tools . . .

I'm having a hard time making the jump for the jigsaw and circular... I don't have any major projects for these at the moment but am a big do-it-yourself(er)...

The kit at big lots (http://www.shopbiglots.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3340804) looks worthwhile because I'd probably use the drill more than anything, but two batteries for three tools just doesn't hit my sweet spot.

Any suggestions on my dilema?

Give me wire or give me death!
I only use corded tools. I won't buy multiple sets to have cordless. Extension cords are cheap and corded tools never run out of juice or slow down at all.

Call me biased(I am), but I'm quite happy lugging around my electrical cables behind me while I work for the increased power.

Same here, these don't outperform my dewalt kit, but definitely worth the money, although, if I didn't have the 4 piece set, I would not have bought the jig saw.
