I started out this morning as I mentioned in my last post, to go to Strausser Hardware for their 25% off sale. What I found was that even 25% off is still about 50% more than HF. Plus they didn’t have a decent powertool on the shelf. I set out to get another Porter Cable 892 Router for the router table I’m going to build, but they only had 3 PC routers and they were tiny.

So off to HF, (hey it’s on the way home from Strausser), and looked at their band saws. The demonstration model was put together rather pathetically, so I worked with it for about 20 minutes and almost got it working right. I decided to get one, because there are just some things every wood shop needs and that’s one of the majors.
