As a new woodworker I often question the cost of a new tool. Some things are very expensive and I don’t understand why. I realize that there is more labor involved in the precision manufacturing of a high end hand plane but is there really a 1000% more labor? The more I learn about tools and whats available I am becoming more often shocked by what people are willing to pay. Is that cut really worth that ridiculous price for the tool.
What has finally pushed me over the edge is the Bridge City Jointmaker Pro. The price they are asking for this thing is so outrageous that I am actually somehow offended by it. I know its a free country and I don’t have to buy it or even want it. And I don’t want it. And I will never buy it. Yet I am still offended at how this company has priced this thing. Its the price of a table saw.
Has anybody bought one of these things?
