    Good catch Tod! I wish the budget (and shop) had room for it. Hopefully this deal will hang around longer than some of the Amazon deals.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    That's impressive for the money. If you bought the lamp, the motor and the chuck the rest of the unit is free.

    I saw that unit in Sears about 6 months ago, it looks VERY similar to the Steel City one I bought (before I saw the Sears model) for LOTS more bucks!

    Dang Tod, you've got me trying to figure out where I'd fit that in my shop. I've got a great space for a benchtop DP, but I'm not sure where I'd fit floor model.

    At that price, I may just have to buy it and store it until I can figure out where to put it.

    [Edited to add...]
    Well, it took me all of about 15 minutes to decide on this one. I still don't know where I'll fit it, but I've got a couple days to do some rearranging before it's here. A $530 tool for less than $200 out the door is hard to pass up.

    That is a Very good deal!

    However I do like the six inch stroke, split head and external micro-adjustable depth stop on my Steel City.

    Didn't Last Long???

    They must not have had many of them, OR......they made a mistake & caught it, because when I clicked on the link to see which model it was, the page that came up said, "the product you are looking for is no longer available".

    Looks like that you are right Norman. I'll bet that it was a mistake. Those kinds of deals do not last long and you really have to jump on them. Good move Vaughn and Rob.
