jointer and biscuit joiner

Hi All,
Looks like I missed the sales that just went on at the Borg and Lowes. I need a 557 Porter Cable and a good jointer. Any new sales coming up that you know of? Any recommendations on a good price/performance value jointer?

Most of my high-dollar tools were bought second hand. I'm very satisfied with them. (Someone else had the hassle of getting them assembled and aligned the first time.) Watch the want ads. <g>

Doug,
Where do you live? See if Porter Cable has a factory service center near you. For example, I have one near by in Queens. I've picked up a number of tools from them in new condition at quite a discount as refurbished. Many of them brand new but over stocked.
Also, check out www.toolseeker.com. For example the best deal on a 557 right now is; http://www.toolseeker.com/PowerTools/PBJoiner/557K.asp?var1U7K
