I needed a right angle grinder for some work. So I went to my local
Home Depot to pick one up. Also I needed a Diamond Blade.

Dewalts and 1 Porter Cable. And they only had one type in stock. The

I made the trip to Woodcraft in Towson MD yesterday, about a 40 minute

to get it.
I found drastic differences between same-name stores. Our local store
is a small one and poorly managed, so selection/service is very poor.
It is okay for hardware. On occasion I'll get a good deal--the Bessey
K-Body clamp clearance was a super buy.
