Probably a stupid question, but with President’s Day coming up here in the US I got to wondering if LN ever had a sale.

None that I’ve ever known of. Even at their hand tool events they don’t discount their items.

Yea, the best I have managed was free shipping. That’s what they offered at the shows. fyi, Amazon carries them and they offer free shipping too.

It looks like amazon charges $6.00 per plane for shipping.

I’m going to a Lie Nielsen show this weekend. I’ll see if they have any sort of sale.

Thanks for the link, Tim. They’ve got Hock blades on sale too. I’ll have to keep them in mind!

I was at the Lie Nielsen Hand Tools even and there was no sale. They offered free shipping, no brokerage fees, a video if you spent over 300(It’s hard not to spend over 300 with their prices…) and only 5% tax which means no PST.

Only the dealers -
Just after I bought my chisels direct from LN.
THey were on sale at Woodcraft, for less than the LN direct price – so I would check out the Woodcraft presidents day sale and see if it includes LN stuff.

I was at Woodcraft’s yesterday and they told me they were not having a President’s day sale. They are having a big sale starting 1 March instead. Either way they don’t sell LN.

I want a No 7, but the ones I’ve bid on at eBay have wound up going for so close to MSRP that the freight sometimes makes them more exensive than just buy a new one. It’s amazing to me how some people wind up bidding more than MSRP for an LN plane that’s still in production. I get it for a collector who wants one of their discontinued or limited production items, but I don’t get it for a regular one.

At least I did get a LN scrub plane on eBay for a good price.

Interestingly, they don’t offer any discount on the hand tool bundles either – the price is the sum of the prices of the separate items. They do toss in a DVD, but I already have it.
