Well, my too good to be true Steelex 8” helical head jointer purchase for $1006 on eBay was just canceled by the seller (Factory Authorized Warehouse) due to a “supply problem” in China. I ordered the jointer back and November and was told it would be in this month which now has been pushed back to late summer. The seller said they couldn’t keep my order active that long and just simply canceled it and refunded the funds)

So my question to anyone in the know is, when is the next 15% off Jet/Powermatic sale. I know they have 10% off sales quite frequently but the 15% sale only happens a couple times a year.

Thanks!

Scott

I don’t know anything about Powermatic sales, but I feel your pain. You wait for months and then they just cancel and leave you in the cold, what a bummer

Not only that, they got a free 3-month interest free loan. I’m positive I helped their balance sheet at the end of the year look that much sweeter!

I’m fairly certain you won’t see a PM 15% off sale, unless it’s the second Tuesday of next week. Seriously, contact Jeanne Perry at Tools Plus, she would probably have some info on the next sale.

Oh yeah…should be just about pretty much any day now…I just ordered and paid for a brand new PM2000!!! That’s the way it always works…PowerMatic never ran a sale on anything in the entire history of the company…at least not until 2 seconds after I paid for something!!!!

Where are you located? Performance Line Tools in Waterford, MI has periodic vendor events in which Jet/PM participates. It was at a December event that I got a 15% discount on a PM dust collector.

That is the way it seems to work, but with my Costco Visa card, they will at least refund me the difference if I find a lower price within 60 days. It has really saved me some money

If you can’t wait for the extra 5%, I got the Woodcraft sales flyer in the mail today, it says there is a 10% off Jet sale March 2nd – 5th. I’m sure Rockler will also have it.
Sorry, best I could do :)

They typically run the day after you pay full price, ; ). About the only times I see discounts on PM is around Christmas.

I went to the Columbus, OH show and didn’t see any discounts on large tools or any vendors for that stuff. Just guys using it in the sponsored talks.

The only time I saw Jet with 15 % off was the weekend of “Black Friday” they’ve had that the past two years. IIRC
They seem to run 10%quarterly. Hope this helps.

call powermatic, they will drop hints. When I wanted my 209hh, i waited for months for that 15% on my 209hh that covered my tax and delivery.

Generally they do one in the spring around Easter, and in the fall around black friday.
