Ok as most know about I was wanting the Harbor Freight mortiser. Couldn't ever get one in. Waited several weeks. Today I headed to Woodcraft to get the Delta that was on sale. When I got to the big city I called HF one last time. Low and behold, truck just came in with 2 on board. I hustle across town and get one. 159.99 online, store price 149.99 but on sale at 129.99. Dropped the 20% off coupon down on the counter and it rang up at 99.99. Not a bad deal. I also picked up a 20oz sprayer that was on sale for 14.99.
Went to WC afterwords, picked up some odds and ends. Later to Menards for a couple other small things, then bought the guy who went with me lunch. Over all I still didn't spend as much as the Delta would have cost.
Dan, you were right. Patience works.
