I paid $180, if you put the tool in your amazon shopping basket it will
decrease to $180 for a day every 7 days or so. I have never seen it at
$140 but you can also use the standing $25 discount on purchases over
$200 to bring the price down to $155 which is fair.
If you can't get an acceptable price on the PC557 type III, there are more
than a few of us more than satisfied with the DeWalt plate jointer. These
two seem to be at that $200 & down sweet spot, price/feature/durability
And now that the two of them will have the same corporate parent, I hope
some other company steps up with a competitive product.
If you don't feel the need to do smaller than #0 biscuits, the DeWalt does
what the PC does.
For the serious wooddorker, the consensus seems to indicate that the 557
type III is more than adequate. If you are going to do a lot of it, and
you insist on high precision, buy the Lamello.
....annnnnd, regardless of which brand you chose, and I have said this
many times before...buy Lamello bisquits, they're simply better.
