Was 479 at the Home Depot here. Damned near pushed me off center to
get the dang thing.
Well, was 466 here today. And a happy coincidence. Right now for
various reasons I need a pressure washer more than I need a saw. Was
going to get one at Sears and lo and behold there was one open box at
Home Depot that would do the job for about 200 bucks less than the
Sears price. So that and the saw would be about 200 bucks more than I
was going to pay for the pressure washer alone. So I dropped the
hammer (and thank God nobody dropped the saw on anybody--that's one
_heavy_ cardboard box--it's all in one box now, not two like it used
to be). Got the pressure washer home and found out the deal on
it--somebody needed a new wand so they bought the thing, took the
wand, and returned it sans wand. If HD can't swap it for one with
wand or provide me a wand, the replacement cost is 25 bucks so I'm
still way ahead.
Now, need to clear a place for the saw and put in an outlet for it and
then unload it. Manana.
Bad news though, they would _not_ take the Harbor Freight coupon.
Policy was "no Internet coupons". Should have printed it on newsprint
and then copied part of an HF flyer on the back.
Well, got a space cleared--two old couches that have been needing to
go out to the curb for years I finally got out. Learned another use
for Third Hands things
Damned handy things to have around.
Now to get the saw down.
