What I want for Christmas - General toys on sale


I went to my local Beaver Lumber/Home Hardware store today. While doing my customary obeisance to the General 350 and surreptitiously wiping my drool off, I noticed a flyer on the adjoining jointer. General are having a sale. For those of you living so far in the boondocks as to not have a local General distributor in your neighbourhood, the flyers are here:

Now Marilyn wants to buy me the 8" jointer for Christmas (the real one, not the cheaper Chiwanese ones). Except I've got no room to put it until I add the 8' to the shop next spring. On the other hand, maybe I can put it on the mobile base. Anyway, I thought some of you might be interested.

Have General prices skyrocketed since 2002? I paid around $800 for the Canadian 15" drill press in 2002.
The brochure shows a price of $1289 for the General 15" drill press. Maybe this is an MSRP and the selling price is a lot less, I don't know. I did find a online store listing the General 15" drill press for $1149.
