Tool Prices on the Rise
Many of you probably read this from Bob Hunter at Wood magazine but, just in case . . .
"Buy tools and machinery now! In the past week I’ve talked with top-level people at the major woodworking tool manufacturers (Delta/Porter-Cable/DeWalt, Grizzly/Shop Fox, Jet/Powermatic, General International, Steel City and others), and each one gave me the same message to pass on to you, the woodworking consumer. Prices have gone up a noticeable jump already this year, but they say we should expect much larger price increases—either in one leap or several smaller ones, possibly as much as 25%—by the end of 2008."
Just what I need. Another excuse to go buy tools NOW!!!
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
