I got an email from Rockler today and it tickled a memory:

From Woodpeckers for $169:99

From Rockler on sale for $4.99

Well, the one from “Woodpeckers” certainly does look a lot cooler but, $165.00 cooler???

Woodpecker’s is a great US company that makes some really great tools. They have to get their prices down though if they are going to make it to most of our shops IMHO. It’s really hard to justify that kind of price when you can get something that does the same thing for $5.

I thought it was funny that Rockler’s response to the one-time tool was as cheap as possible.
