I just bought a Performax 16/32 w/stand for $629 from RAF in Buffalo (after
the rebate). Okay, I have to drive 60 miles and pay sales tax; but it is
still $200 below Amazon. I sure hope it turns out to be a gloat!
As long as I am in Buffalo, are there any really sexy lumber yards worth a
visit? I've never seen a Rockler; is that worth a visit, or will it just
look like a WoodCraft?
Does the company happen to be located in the Seneca Warehouse (600 block
of Seneca St, bordered by Larkin, Exchange and Hamburg Streets). I ask
because my neighbor bought three DVD players from a company located
there that sells surplus equipment. They sell only via Ebay.
He paid $40 for all three players (plus a $20 handling fee although he
picked them up) and they all were fine.
Maybe it has been sitting in the warehouse taking up cash flow for a long
time and he wants to move it as fast as possible. There may be a larger
markup on it, thus the greater discount, compared to a router. Only way to
know for sure it to ask him if he is making enough profit and offer to pay
more if he is not.
The shop is listed as an authorized service shop for a number of
different tool manufacturers. I suspect it's a unit that was brought in
for repair and never picked up. They probably listed the tool on Ebay
for what they had into it.
