It looks like Jet is promoting a pretty big sale. However, I note that the regular prices quoted in this brochure are not the prices that they normally sell their products for so, in my opinion, these “regular prices” are not their regular prices.

Nonetheless, you can judge for yourself if there are any really good deals available in this sale.

Rich, you are right, but they do seem to be decent prices. Our mentality is that we must get a good deal, so it is advertising’s place to convince us we are.

The sale prices seem to be inflated a bit. I live in Seattle and I purchase the JJ-6CSDX, 6” Deluxe Jointer with Quick Change Knives about a month ago from the local Rockler store for $699.99 it has a listed sale price of $799.99 (the list price at the time I purchased this was $799 – the manager knocked $100 because of my order size)

I purchase the JWBS-18QT-3, 18” Bandsaw w/ Quick Tension, 3HP, 1Ph – Saturday from the same Rockler store for $1499.99 and it has a list sale price of $1599.99.

I would double check the market where you live in before I accepted the prices in the flyer.

yeah, prices seems to be a bit on the high mark. anybody noticed that the front page had a buy feeding/pulling lumber on a table saw with gloves on?

Being the manufacturer they list everything in the brochures at full list. The distributers set there own prices to make the profit they feel they again get by on. This an agreement with most manufacturer reps that the manufacturer won’t under cut the representative companies. If you click on a link from Jet it sends you to a seller. If you read the fine print it will state that the prices may differ in certain markets.

I bought the 10” ProShop saw last year…it’s the exact same price…nothing different.

Have your say...
