Look in Wood Magazine, or DIY or Handyman magazines and there is usually a HF sale page near the back.

For the 2hp dust collector I used to regularly see the price was $139.
Now I usually see it as $149 or $159. I think maybe they read Lumberjocks too.

Some stores won’t let you combine the 20% off coupon with the sale price. It’s printed right on the coupon that it is not to be combined with other sales, but I have used one that way. I have also been turned down. You just have to go and ask.

You can join their “Inside Track” club for $29 and you always get the lowest sales price for everything you buy and even better prices on the special flyer that comes out each month for club members only. In addition they also give you a $10 gift coupon to use when ever you want. I got my drill press and my nail gun and my lathe and my dust collector through this club membership and saved way more than the $29.

But there is only a small price advantage of the club membership and the magazine coupons but the club has a 6 to 8 page flyer full of deals while the magazine adds are just a single page. If you are only looking for one item and it’s in a magazine add you might not save anything extra after you pay the membership.
