I am on the Home Depot Email list. They had the Ryobi AP1301 13"
portable planer on the ad today for $199. The Home Depot Web site
still listed it at $229. So I printed out the email and took it in to
the local depot, which had the planer listed at $229 on the shelf.
They honored the $199 price on the email, however we did have a
chuckle since the ad lists it as a "cordless" planer.
Let us know how the AP-13 works out. I just turned my old AP-12 over
the our son after about 14-15 years of use and some abuse. The
AP-10's and -12's were great machines. I repaired the gearbox casting
and did a general recondition on the AP-12 before I gave it away, but
I suspect he will still get a lot of good use out of it.
Forget it! That makes the thing a lot more noisy.
"Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty.
There is also in human nature a resentment of injury, and
indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration
of virtue. These amiable passions, are the latent spark. If
the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling
the differences between true and false, right and wrong,
virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of
mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?"
