« Part 1: Jewel found at an auction! Part 2 of The search for new equipment! series no next part

Just a heads up to anyone near a Lowes. I stopped in my local Lowes during my lunch hour today just to look at all the lovely power tools. While walking down one of the isles that contain secondary equipment I noticed a clearance tag on some Delta Branded items. Usually these don’t catch my eye, but then I noticed the tag was for a Tenoning Jig. So, got down on my knee to look on the lower shelf. There is was… a single, unopened, Delta 34-184. This is the same Jig that is featured in the latest issue of Wood Magazine. (Top Tool rating I believe).

So, I took a closer look at the clearance tag and had to pick up my chin from the floor. Yep, they had the jig priced at the large amount of $25.74….. Yes, that is correct. So, with Tax I walked out the door with a Delta Jig for $27.28

I don’t think anything can happen at work for the rest of the day that will get my spirits down.

PurpLev – 34-184 is the model number. I mixed the numbers on the initial posting

Grizzman – There was only the one… There is another lowes on the way home, and I will stop tonight to see if they also have any. Yep, cannot hurt to make an extra $20 or help out another woodworker!

Terean you seem to be attracted to these things. I seem to remember a little good fortune with a sander not too long ago. Good score guy.
