I really wanted a scroll saw for doing scroll work but also to cut the barrels on more fragile pens like some of the Laserlinez creations.
As Abbott so generously shared, you can always print out a 20% off one item coupon from Harbor Freight, so I did and headed off to my local HF. I went and look at their scroll saw ($79.99) and they only had one and it was a return. So I headed off to Lowe’s looking for that elusive Hitachi scroll saw and because Abbott said they will honor HF’s coupons.
No Hitachi anywhere. But, they had just received one, count ‘em, one new Porter Cable scroll saw with stand. It goes for $179, the regular price. I went to the service desk and showed them the HF coupon for 20% off and asked if they would honor it. They said “yup, we will, but not on stuff on sale.” I went back and got the first/last new scroll saw, and walked out the door with it at 20% off ($143.00).
Thank you Abbott, and HF and Lowes.
