I ran across a Laguna 16/32 drum sander for $595 on Amazon. I thought “what a deal!” Amazon routed me to Laguna to purchase the drum sander, where I punched in my area code. The shipping cost… $29,555. Now I know I can be a little tight, but that seems just a little high.

I am thinking that two decimal places got moved. I got a quote from Laguna last winter for a cabinet saw. Shipping to Massachussetts was $388. Suggest you call Laguna and see if the actual cost is $295.55.
The sander’s price reflects its country of origin, China.

truly, pocket change…but then with inflation…that’s what’s in the cookie jar.

Must be from the fuel surcharge. Like some of the airlines now. $350 for a ticket to Europe. $450 fuel surcharge on top of it.
