Deals !!

Hi, all tool junkies,
I was working near HD today, so went in at coffeetime to get some caulk. Found the toolguys ( well - ya know how ya just driiiift over to the toolcorral ) downpricing the demos. !!!! -Picked up DeWalt 384, (the 8 1/4 saw)for $ 90 (about 55 US), the DeWalt 304 Recip. saw for 75 (about 40 US) and the biggie, - the Ridgid 13" planer for 290 (190 ). That's a bit less than 1/2 price for each.WOW, I couldn't believe my luck , can't wait to try them out.

You got some great buys!

Was this an advertised sale, or just that one store clearing out some old inventory?

The store does not pay for all of the demos because the manufacturer provides it. Sometimes they have the choice to either throw the stuff out or sell it and pocket the money.

Those sales aren't advertised. If there is a general clearance, it is, but what is there is up for grabs.

Most of the clearance items like doors, windows and appliances (or anything else that is special order) are items that the vendor will not issue credit for upon return.

Hi Guys,
- Danski is right, this was not advertised.
By an immense stoke of luck, I just happened to be in the store on the day that the main tool guy had picked to have his vendors set up new displays. I had a feeling this might happen as soon as I spotted all the guys with 'Dewalt' , 'Makita' , 'Bosch' etc. badges, and just hung around.
I figure I've probably used up my 'luck' supply for the year

Do it Right - Do it once !
