Dang... you sound more like a "tool collector" than a "tool user". If you
need the tool, buy it at the best price at the time. If you continue to
wait, you have several years to go. I bought my Delta about 6 years ago and
paid $249.00+ shipping. If you really intend to use the tool, the extra $10
or $15 that you pay because you did not absolutely explore every conceivable
avenue should not factor in. If I were you I would consider the time it
will save you vs. the extra $10 or $15 it will save you to wait.
