I just saw that a local store is slashing prices on Steel City machines because of new models coming out in Feb. '09. One was a grantite fenced 6" jointer for $499!! The new one has a granite fence and tabletop. Another is a hybrid TS with $400 off reg. price.

Check with you local stores to see if they have the same deals. Also here is the flyer for the new models due out in Feb.
