Last year's show was a big disappointment. Each year they get
smaller, have fewer booths. The Chantilly show was larger but still
not what these shows used to be. Time past they had more small
businesses, more than one large vendor, and, generally, a larger
variety of "stuff". The've become mostly a place to look at some
(only some) of the larger tools, and buy portable DeWalt tools, with a
dash of Porter Cable thrown in.
An additional disappointment was Skarie Inc. Bought a drill press
from 'em. They took my money, and didn't deliver the press until
months (4+) later - after I started nudging them. Gave me excuses
that Delta was having issues, but other vendors said 'not'. Shame,
since I kinda held them in higher regard than the other places around
That said, I may _still_ go this year since I want to look at, among
other things, the Akeda jig. Supposedly, they'll be reorganzied under
their new ownership by then.
