OK, some of you might recall my “Danger Will Robinson” experience this week with my Wilton Miter saw. Well, glory be to God, funny how things work out. I’ve been pricing a replacement and was kinda torn between the Dewalt and the Hitachi. Love the Dewalt but the cam lever they have to lock the table is broke in half the store demos I’ve seen so that was spooking me a bit. Anyway just this morning they put the Hitachi 12” 12FCH on Clearance ot Lowes for $136.00….that’s right $136.00. The first stop didn’t have any but the demo, but that Lowes called another who had a couple left and put one on hold for me. I wasn’t counting my chickens so the ride seemed to take forever. But I have the saw resting comfortably in the back of my car right now. Can’t wait to get home and play! Check out your local Lowes folks, this is a hell of a bargain!!

Thank you,

Nice find! I too had to replace my miter saw… I opted for the 12” Delta at CPO Woodworking for $199. Happieness is a new tool.

Man I have 3 hours to go still here at work, this is going to be one long afternoon. Suppose I can start designing a stand, researching blades. Folks at the stores get blasted enough, I must toss out a kudos to Tim at the Oswego IL Lowes and Kirk at the Aurora IL Lowes! As well as the LumberJock reviews area!!

Great deal. I have the Hitachi slider and would not give it up for anything.

By the way I got a circular in from Lowe’s today advertising a 15% sale on their tools.
