Talk me out of it


Opportunity to buy a Performax 22x44, brand new, at a very good price. Yes, I'll use it for a few projects here and there but will probably never get whole lot of use out of it. So I'm blinded by the low price and not seeing through it how it will be a seldom used tool in the shop. Someone please stop me.

I think you were trying to post to alt.tool.junkies.anonymous. Unfortunately, you've reached alt.woodwhacking.enablers.
I'm sure there's an equation out there, cooked up by some propeller head, that would let you plug in your shop's square footage, price of the tool, utilization coefficient, nag factor (What? You bought another tool?! You don't even use the ones you have!) and you'd be able to see hard, concrete numbers which you could then ignore when you buy the tool.
If it's a good price, buy it, use it, turn around and sell it after a few projects. If it wasn't that useful, you won't have a problem selling it, and if the price is that good you'll probably make a profit.
HTH ;)

So, anyone interested in the Performax 22/44 that mounts on a radial arm saw column? Respectfully, Ron Moore

I have the 16x32 and love it. I use it much more than I thought. Put 50 grit on and you can clean up old boards that you wouldn't want to put in your planer.

As with most tools, once you have the tool the projects that utilize it magically materialize - things you'd never even think of before you got the tool.

Buy the tool. Keep it at my place to save floor space. Come and use it anytime you want. Bring beer.

Don't, stop. Wait, don't do it. Is this working for you? :~)

When I purchase tools that I expect I'll only use occasionally it often turns out that I wonder how I ever got along without it and give it a lot of use. That has caused me to buy the best I can afford so I won't be limited by the tool, or have to later buy the one I should have bought in the 1st place. And then have to try to find a sale for the lower cost one.

IMHO the amount of stopping is directly related to the price, So how low is this "...low price..."?
