Father’s Day gift guide to the 19.2 volt C3 Cordless Tools
Father’s Day is June 20th — are you prepared to make your Dad smile? You’ve got a little time yet, so I figured a I’d give you a few suggestions. People joke that Dads usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to gifts, but I’ve found that tool dad’s are different. If your Dad taught you all kinds of cool stuff, about fixing things, building things and not getting hurt in the process, get him tools.
If you’ve spent more time working with your Dad in the garage or shop than than shopping at the Mall, here are a few hints to point you in the right direction.
19.2 volt C3 Cordless Tools
Cordless tools can really speed up the work your Dad likes to do and help him do the tasks he doesn’t like much faster. The 19.2 volt C3 line of cordless tools are the most popular in the Craftsman line. If he likes Craftsman he may already have a 19.2 volt drill and a few of the C3 tools. The tools are strong, lightweight, and well built. They are designed for around the home use and there are so many that it can be hard for you to decide what to get him.
Does your Dad need a new drill? Many Dad’s have an old favorite but if he uses it as much as I do it’s probably time for a new one. You might as well get him a well-built drill and batteries that will last him for years.
Besides being a well built drill the batteries in the cordless tools I will suggest here will fit over 30 other cordless tools from Craftsman. You can buy him a drill or combo set for Father’s day and then have over 30 more ideas of tools to get him for all those other occasions when you don’t know what to get.
I’m going to start showing you the C3 tools with three lithium-ion combo kits.
The first kit is the Craftsman Model 1164419.2-volt C3 Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 4 pc. Combo Kit is the best cordless wood working kit. It features the latest and best Lithium-ion battery technology along with 4 rugged tools. It includes ½ inch drill, 900 in lb impact driver, cut-off saw, 7 ¼ inch circular saw, two triple capacity lithium-ion batteries and charger. The charger and high capacity batteries are the best.
The second kit is the best cordless automotive combo kit. The CraftsmanModel 17229 19.2V C3 Mechanics Combo features the ½ inch cordless drill/driver and a ½ inch impact wrench. The kit comes with one lightweight lithium-ion and one high capacity lithium-ion battery and charger. The impact wrench alone will save him hours of time working on the vehicles.
The third kit is the Craftsman Model 17310 19.2-volt C3 Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless Compact Drill-Driver and comes with a ½ drill, charger and lightweight lithium-ion battery. This kit is a great starter kit if you are on a budget and will get him started with the best drill and battery in the Craftsman C3 line.
Does he already have a 19.2 volt cordless drill? Go out in the garage and look at the side of the battery on his drill and it will say 19.2 v.
If that’s the case here are the latest additions to the line that he will really enjoy. Please note: All these cordless tools do not come with a battery or charger. They are meant to be add-ons to the combo kits above or to add to the existing 19.2 v tools he already has.
