You really are getting a discount, even though they don't want to haggle with you. If you looked at a Delta or Jet with Cast wings and a nice fence like the ridgid, (even comes with casters for moving...$50 extra for the Delta) You'd be looking in the $800 range. So, $600 seems like a pretty good deal to me. I'm about to buy the drill press for $300. I tried to haggle with no luck, but I'm still getting it. The drill press has been very highly rated by several mags and is about $100 cheaper than comperable machines.
I don't think i am getting any discount on Ridgid shop equipment
