I have been watching prices on woodworking stuff climb lately.
Especially on junk items.
What I think it is, and I've seen this before. You get a premium line in
like Festool, and people will pay the price. So then the other
manufacturers and retailers figure if they raise the price people will
think its a finer product.
I am watching some real low end stuff skyrocket.
Be careful out there.

I see the opposite. Take for instance, the Festool Multitool. I see the same
tool made by and/or for Rockwell, Craftsman, Harbor Freight, etc. at a much
lower price and yet to see any price increases. I would think the idea is to
offer lower pricing to beat the competition. That appears what I've been
Don't despair. I hear that Festool is going to be producing a home
builders truck that comes with a basic set of its tools.
They're still working out the sales price, but it's expected to sell
in the $700,000 range for the basic unit. Upgrade it with all the
options and you're looking close to a $Million.
Reserve your FOGTruck now ($50,000 deposit required), and they will
give you a Festool Christmas tree for free.
Been noticing that myself. Saw an email flyer from Rockler recently
advertising router tables ... cheapest one was a four legged metal stand,
MDF core top, and el cheapo fence, on -sale- for $500. Sheesh.
