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.

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.
