So this was my first WW show and I had high expetations and a little pocket money searching out a great deal on that planner I have been mulling over. I was a little disappointed with the “big name” turn outs but all was well in the end.
The first to check out wa the delta and dewalt planner deals…..still too close to sticker price for me, so I took a trip down to the rigdid both.
Sitting out front was the 1300LS planner. I started talking to the rigdid rep. (who was actualy a very nice guy) and talking about the 1300 and the show price of $239…...good deal I told him but I was looking for the three blade R4330 model and pretty much stuck on that model…....until he fliped the sign over to $199…....okay now you have my attention. Still mulling it over and kicking around the $199 I saw they had the rigdid 6 1/8” jointer for $269 show price, so I thow in “sell me both for $400 and you have a deal”. Well he could not do that since this was a HD stock and he could not control the pricing, but he said I will throw in a 12” saw blade.
After much thought and a little pushing from the wife we walked out with the 1300LS planner, JP0610 6 1/8” jointer, 12” 100 tooth rigdid titanium saw blade, three rigdid shirts, four hats and two pair of rigdid saftey glasses all for the low, low price of $506 including tax.
After getting the tools home and setting them up I am extremly pleased with both and look forward to making saw dust and scrap wood with them!
