no previous part Part 1 of New Tools Added to the Shop series Part 2: Porter Cable Drill Press »

Yesterday I ordered my Bandsaw, a Rikon 10-325. It was on sale at Sears for $799 plus an additional $40 off for using my sears card. Total price $759.99 delivered to my local Sears store. Next, I wanted the Rikon mobility kit. I found it at Woodcraft on sale for $49.99. The total package is $809.98. What a bargain. The money I saved will be buying the Porter Cable Drill Press at Lowes. You never really save $$ do you? It gets spent somewhere! I am a newbe so I will attempt a video of me trying to assemble this. Should be interesting.
