I am back from the Grizzly tent sale.
It was another spectacular event. I found what I went there for under the tents and in the showroom.
Here is a picture outside the accessories and hand tool tent-

There is a tent also for woodworking machinery, and two tents for metal working machinery.
Dewalt, Makita, and Milwaukee Tools also have tents with great discounts on new power tools.

I was looking for a second router, so I can set my 2 1/4 hp Rigid up on the Torque, and still have a router set up in the cabinet. I have been looking at the Dewalt DW618B3, 2 1/4 hp with 3 bases.

Photobucket

Tent special was $207.00, my husband bought it for me.
Also found a drill press mortising attachment kit for $40.00 reg price $63.95- tag said the 1/4” drill was rusty.
I own steel wool so I bought it.

Photobucket

Picked up a Pro Stix 15” x 20” rubber sandpaper cleaner for the drum sander $15.00 reg price $64.95. The rubber is glued to a 1/8” piece of ply and it is bowed. Glued and clamped it to a 3/4” piece of ply and it is now FLAT. I need to clean the paper on the drum sander, I should get more wear out of the paper that way.
A friend of mine was looking for a scroll saw, there were twelve of them, all 22”, each $25.00. I picked up two that had shipping damage. One has a cracked base, the other a broken lower arm, I ordered the replacement parts right there. $9.00 for the base and $14.50 for the arm. These units sell new for $135.95, I got my tools out and made one unit complete, my friend is picking it up tomorrow for $75.00. I will fix the other unit when the parts arrive and sell it. I found that this is a rather course machine, very basic, and has some vibration that I couldn’t work out if it. It is good for a starter machine if you are trying to decide if you will even like scrolling without spending alot of money. I have a Rigid that performs much better than the Grizzly.

My husband and I are going to replace the carpeting in the house with hardwood floors. We picked up a flooring nailer for $25.00 reg price $195.00 . The tag said the pin driver has a bur on it. Will fix that up.

Photobucket

Inside the store I bought a bench top radial arm drill press for $195.00 a one day only sale price.

Photobucket

Picked up some odds and ends…sandpaper rolls, Timberwolf band saw blade, and some files.
It was another good trip, lots of dust collectors….I counted 16, a dozen or so various sizes dust collectors, band saws, drill presses, and so much more. The thing about the sales is you never know what you will find or if you will beat someone else to the prize.

Thanks for looking,

Lisa

That was another great shopping trip…. you got a lot of good things and saved a bundle of $$$ ! And soon you’ll have another drum sander. How big is your shop?! I’m trying to clean out another section of my basement so I can expand a little bit. My shop is claustrophobic as Ellen will tell you! I look forward to seeing you again at Lenny’s in Oct.

Hey Lisa,
That looks like fun. I guess I am glad I did not show up, it would be tempting.

That radial arm drill press looks pretty cool. Interesting tool.
Thanks for the pics,
Steve

I have that DeWalt set and it’s a good one but, I would have gotten the Milwaukee with the extra bases if it had come out in time (I had a project that couldn’t wait). I missed it by 3-4 months… I think I should have waited. I have the 1 3/4hp one with the strap and the 3 1/2 hp one in my table for, you guessed it, MORE POWER!!! HO, HO!!! Nice machines. Check Amazon for prices…

Sounds like some great buys. We are going to the Springfield, MO. one next year. Grizzly is just down the street from Basspro. Sounds like a great weekend to me.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Lisa. Serious tool envy going on about now. You seem to be the Grizzly-meister. So glad to hear things went so well for you on the trip.
