I have been looking to buy a Porter Cable 557 biscuit joiner, and I just saw Woodcraft has a sale where if you buy that joiner for $219.99, you get a PC 690LR router for ‘free’.

I don’t need another router, but maybe someone does and would like to share the deal. Of course, I’m sure I’ll get replies to the tune of “great, just send me the router, since that’s free”. Well, here’s what seems fair to me:

Current Amazon “street price” for 557 joiner: $188.25
Current Amazon “street price” for 690LR router: $122.25
Total cost of package if bought at Amazon: $310.50
Price of package from Woodcraft: $219.99
% discount below Amazon price: 29%

So we just apply that discount % to each tool. I figure discounted price would be $133.36 for the jointer, $86.63 for the router, totaling $219.99. I would go buy the package deal, have Woodcraft put both our names on the receipt, and either bring you (if you’re local) or ship you the unopened box w/the router. We could split the shipping cost. And I’d trust any LJer’s word – you can pay me after you receive it.

I don’t think there would be any issue with the full warranties. Anyone interested?

OK, I’ve found a team mate for this. Local Woodcraft had sold out, but we are in line for one of the last units in their next shipment.

Mark home depot did have them on sale for 120.00. I don’t know if they still do but they went on sale about a week after I paid the full price for mine. Just my luck haha
