Just happened into the neighborhood Lowes tonight and found a HUGE display
of P-C routers (8529), Tiger saws, Makita and Milwaukee jigsaws, Milwaukee
18V hammer-drill ($175) and Bosch miscellany, all marked down. The 8529 was
marked list $209, clearance $125. I bought one for a buddy at work that is
looking for a new router. I actually walked out without a thing for me -
unbelievable, but I had all those things in one flavor or another. Sniff.
I hate to pass up on a good tool buy.
Interesting observation: The 8529 rang up at $159, but they took it down to
$125. I thought maybe the $209 was mismarked, but Amazon has it for $219.
Maybe $159 was the "first" reduced price.
