Hey, JJC. Did the HD in Houston cut you a deal on the MS1290? I'm interested in one of the new ones with the laser, but if I can get a deal on the old model, I would be very tempted. Has anyone else seen the old models on close out and if so, how much.
Also, I'm starting to rethink going Ridgid, lock-stock-and barrel. So far the guys here in Fort Worth don't act like they will deal anything on price if buying 3 to 4 different machines at the same time (the wife didn't say, NO!, when I mentioned it this morning!!) Anyone have any ideas on getting a decent discount? I've got alternatives to several items using PorterCable and Delta. On the MS it would be a 10" slider instead of a 12" one, but the same amp motor. Could use the $$s saved to go ahead and get the Delta 17-965 drill press with the extra power and quill travel.
At the least I'm Pentatoxic...most likely I'm a Pentaholic. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3.
