Well my birthday is coming up on the 5th of January and I had planned on buying the Ridgid Oscillating Spindle sander since the reviews are fantastic. This past week I started making the plans to my Flip Top Cart I was going to start this weekend with the planner and sander.
It was slow at work on Friday so I went to the Laguna Tools website and saw that the Resaw King on sale, 25% off which I thought was a good deal, I don’t own a Laguna nor a band saw but I thought what the heck, I plan on getting one so why not save some money now on the Resaw King. LJ’s that follow me know that I guy I work with wants to buy the 18” HD Laguna just after x-mas, and I’ve mentioned to him lets asked if they’ll do a bundle discount b/c i’m interested in the 14” SUV but i’m not interested in $205 for shipping.
I called Laguna asking about shipping on the Resaw King and they said it was $30 bucks, then I asked if I bought the 14” SUV would the Resaw King be cheaper, they said “YES, I could give it to you for cost, $129”. Then I said, what if I wanted 2 saws, 2 Resaw Kings, 2 mobile bases, 2 Driftmaster fences could you give me a good deal. The sales rep said, “yeah, let me send you a proposal of what I could do for you”
Shipping CREDIT of $414, so shipping was only $99 for EVERYTHING
Laguna 14” SUV – $1,595 – Retail $1,595
Resaw King 1” – $100 – Retail $220
Mobile Base – $50 – Retail $175
Driftmaster – $250 – Retail $395
Bundle Price 1,995 + Splitting Shipping($50) ~ $2,045 +Tax
Regularly $2,385 + Shipping($205) ~ $2,590 + Tax
IS THIS A GREAT DEAL??? or do i want to have an excuse to by a BS?
Long Story short, I didn’t go by the lumberyard to pick up stock for the Flip Top Cart build this weekend, instead i keep my money and I’ve been thinking if I should pull the trigger on this band saw this coming week. Basically it comes down to my Co-worker decision and whether he wants to buy his saw early, then I’ll have to make a decision! lol
Since I didn’t buy anything new this weekend, I decided to make a mallet for my chisels out of some scrap maple laying around the shop.
