My local Woodcraft gives customers a gift card worth 15% of your purchase when buying wood over $100. I've bought a little wood in the past few months, so I had several gift cards I've been holding on to waiting for just the right deal. This was it.
This shoulder plane was priced at $90, but had been moved to the 'discount' shelf and marked at 30% off. Just so happens I had a little over $60 in gift cards, so when the tax was added and the smoke settled the total cost out of pocket was $.83.
I hope to get started on it in a week or two. Always wanted a shoulder plane, just could never justify the cost. We'll see how well it goes.
