Was looking for one of these for some Christmas projects (that's what I told
her, anyway :) ) and can't seem to locate one. Is Dewalt behind the curve
on these lately? What about a reasonable substitute that would work as well
that IS available? Perhaps the Delta 22-580?
I had checked on them at Coatal Tools and they said they have sold out and
they are going like hot cakes. They do not expect to see them until January.
Amazon had them on special for 455 yesterday but is back at 479.
I've not seen the DeWalt, but it sure sounds like a very good planer. I have
the Delta 580 and like it very much. Woodcraft is having a 10% off Delta on
12/13. With the discount and a rebate, the final cots of the 580 is going
to be $309.
I get a flyer in the mail every month. If you are near a Woodcraft, stop by
and ask. they sometimes give you the price ahead and writ it up as a
lay-away. I don't know if this is standard procedure but it also helps to
be on a "first name" basis with one or two of the sales people. They can
also tip you off on deals.
I called the new local store near me, however they won't be open until
the 15th. I told them what I wanted and they took my CC info and will
open the doors on the 13th for me to pick it up. Very good customer
care. I like them already. Good price too.
Not sure if I should curse you or thank you :)
Just pulled the trigger last week on the Ridgid 13". $306 (had a 10%
coupon) came with a dust collector attachment and stand and 2 sets of
It's still in the garage, in the unopened box. I was going to open it
up this weekend, but now I think I want to wait until the 13th to see
if I can get the Delta. 580
The Ridgid is a very nice machine, but for the same price (but without
some extras) I'd rather get the Delta.
