  • Tools where you can get 'em!

    Here in the Des Moines area we are lucky to have a Woodsmith Store, Woodcraft, Menards, HD and Lowe's. I have the Ridgid 2412, jointer and OSS/OBS. I am very happy with all of these tools but I have also purchased Jet, Dewalt, Porter-Cable and Milwaukee tools, with a smattering BD and Craftsmen.

    I have found that you buy the tools where you can get them at the best deal and go from there. For my HD tools I used a 10% off first purchase with the HD Card and that took a chunk of change off the price. I have gotten 90 days same as cash deals at Woodcraft whereas Woodsmith has no special purchasing options. It's nice that Menards carries Powermatic and Jet but it has been nice to be able to kick the tires of all major brands before purchasing. I don't have any Delta tools. It seems that they are resting too much on their laurels and I am just not impressed with the bang for the buck.
