My experience with Lowe's, yep they'll deal. If you make a deep offer and the guy says he can't give you an answer, ask him to call someone that can. Had an evening where I bought three bandsaws, a chop saw, a table saw and two drill presses. They were refreshing their demonstrators. I bought them without boxes, averaged $100.00 each! And they were assembled and loaded in my truck. They had to call someone at home, he told them to sell them. Now with that said, the bandsaws are used and work well, that dang Delta drill press wobbles and the chuck falls off constantly. It will go this summer in the yard sale.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
