Topic tags/keywords: jp0610 jointer

Just got back from Home Depot. I noticed the Ridgid JP0610 Jointer was on sale for $301.00. The website lists this at 429.00, the store says it is normally $399.

Not sure if anyone knows this, but you can get a 10% off coupon from the Depot’s Moving website.

Seems like a good deal for $270.00.

Interesting, that does seem like a good deal.

Just got back from HD. That Ridgid is not back up to $429. They would not budge on the price…even when I told them it was on Lumberjocks! Then I noticed that the original post was 93 days ago! Oh, well….

Ellen,

I was at the Home Depot last week in Hempstead Long Island and I am positive it had 301.00 tag on it. I have noticed that you need to get lucky with this one. There are 10 Home Depots near my house and they always have different pricing on this model. When I purchased mine, the HD in Hempstead had it for 399.00 and the HD in Westbury had it for 301.00.

The next time I am there I will verify the price. I usually make it a habit that each time I goto the HD I stop by the tool corral to see if there are any deals.

This is a great jointer at this price. I love it. I would encourage you to goto the HomeDepot moving website to get a 10% off coupon that you could apply.

Mike

Mike,

“They” (the boys in the coral) told me that prices vary from store to store and region to region. When I showed them the LJ site, “they” immediately said “oh, look, it’s not near here” – that is relative! New York is not near Russia but it is near MA!! I would buy it in a heartbeat for $301…but I will not pay $429 on principle…especially when I know the manager has some discretion on the price (according to “them”). The mgr would not budge on the price.

I just called another HD and had them call the Westbury HD. That great $301 was a clearance price because they could not sell them. Evidently, here in MA, they can sell them. Westbury does not have any left.

Can you let me know the website for the 10% off moving coupon? I can still use that one on something else!

Thanks for your post. I am also looking at a Grizzley…a friend said they are better – but I would have to go with a smaller unit.

Ellen

yeah, seems like Mark Shymanski replied to a bunch of old-mostly-expired posts with a one-liner trying to revive the now-dead-subject… not sure what’s up with that.

back to the topic- seems like some (as opposed to other) ridgid tools are actually made to fair/good standards. the only problem with Ridgid is that it seems that they have the tendency to discontinue many products, and completely drop support/customer service to those products, so a tool that might sell today at H.D. might be ‘forgotten’ tomorrow when you have an issue with it – not very customer friendly in my opnion. for $300 you could get an old/used/craiglist/ebay jointer from Delta/Jet/Grizzley which those companies still provide you with support to this day and tomorrow (technical questions, and replacement parts, and blades). just my thought .. figure I might chime in on this one. I got my 6” delta jointer for $70 on craigslist. works great, cast iron, and I know I can get support if I need it.

I don’t have a lot of space in my workshop. Everything must be “portable” and movable. I would have made room for the Ridgid for $301. It also weighs 213 lbs…for me that is a lot to move around. I think the small Grizzley for about the same price with a stand (wt 45 lbs + stand) may be more my speed. I don’t do a lot of jointing of long pieces of wood and I have a Ridgid suitcase planer that I love. A benchtop model may be the right compromise for me right now.
