It’s great to have a nephew working at WoodCraft. He calls me and tells me this Freud router is on sale for $99.99 and then says, “You want one?” Well, since Woodcraft typically lists it for $189.99 I have deliberate for about half a second before saying, “Sure.”

He tells me there’s a limited quantity, so if you’re looking for a router I’d hit up WoodCraft pretty quickly.

I saw this in their last mailing. I’m wondering if freud power tools will go away as part of the merger with bosch. thanks for the info and i hope you enjoy it. If it was 3+ I’d probably jump at it too (even for a few more $’s), but I only need a big one at the moment.

Thank you for the heads up!! I have been looking for a new router for 2 weeks, and this one fits my needs to the T. The price is just a bonus. Just bought it and hopefully get it soon!

I almost got a job at Rockler last week, position was filled 2 hours before I got there. That would have been like making an 8 year old a clerk at Toys R Us, but with a pretty good employee discount…. Oh well. How lucky you are to have a nephew to tip you off to these things.

This same deal was offered at lowes website a few months back. I bought one and must say that it’s a great router combo! The above the table height adjustment is very nice.

Home Depot is also offering this for $99 at the store. I’m not sure if they have it on-line or not though.

I just invested in all new “Festool” tools for my shop, otherwise I’d jump on this.

yeah, this kit has been this way since some time before Xmas in several places. Easy enough to find on ebay now as well, as a consequence.

Have your say...
