Ok, so last week I manages to score a good deal on a very nice 80 gallon sppedaire. This week I purchased a freeborn door edge cutter that has a top and bottom profile that works with 35 mm cup hinges. I needed the cutter like yesterday so I called the local dealer and requested he get.the cutter for me as quick as he can. A few hours later he called to inform me the cutter was ordered and being shipped from CA. He requested payment if 360.00 plus shipping. I about chocked. He told me freeborn sets pricing and he has very little mark up.
All the cutters I have bought have been mlcs or grizzly and have cost me 100.00 or less. Given freeborn is US company, and I presume they manufacture here in the US, do u all feel the price is fair. My understanding is the quality is higher then what I am accustomed to.
So does anyone have an opinion? The cutter hopefully will last 20 uears for that price. It actually would pay for itself in about 4 years based on the fact I spend about 100 per year on throw away router bits to do complete the task my shaper will take over.
