Thanks guys for the tip about the 20% off at Lowe's. We didn't have a
Lowe's in the area (Lincolnwood, IL) until they opened YESTERDAY!
I've had my eyes on buying a jointer for a few months and was motivated by
the discussions in the newsgroup. Hearing about the 20% off, I went to the
new Lowe's and asked where I could find the Ryobi Jointer. The man very
politely told me they don't sell Ryobi, but have Delta.
I was expecting to find the Ryobi for $399 less 20%. What they had was a
Delta JT360 6" with a floor stand for $349 less 20% = $279.20. Guess who
has a 300# monster in his truck right now?
I'd like to hear if anyone has anything bad to say about this before I
unload and assemble. It seems too good to be true. I see this same unit
listed on Amazon and other sites for $449.99.
Did Christmas come early?
Thanks to all for the good advice over the year. I really enjoy this
newsgroup and it has been a definite help in improving my knowledge, skills
and good places for buying more toys.
