Default Close out on Craftsman 17543

I have been waiting for the sale price of $79.88 to buy my second Craftsman 17543 11 amp 2 hp Corded Fixed and Plunge Base Soft Start Router with Electronic Feedback and was surprised that according to a Sears Internet phone rep that they are under "Close Out". Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

Supposedly they are being closed out and the sale price is a Catalog/Online Exclusive. I say supposedly because the web site doesn't state it but the rep stated it as the reason why the router wasn't being shipped free.

Just a heads up if you were planing on the 17543. I know I would have been disapointed if they were no longer available.

I sure am glad my wife loves me!

I heard that Sears was discontinuing their entire line of woodworking tools, and is recalling all Craftsman routers made in the past.

Just kidding, Bob.

I can picture Bob pulling a Fred Sanford by grabbing his chest, looking towards heaven and saying "........This is the big one"

Glad to hear that a few folks are able to buy a router before Bob cleans them out!

You know you're getting older when you hunt folks down to gripe.......... I "Reply" emailed Sears and explained (griped) about the shipping charge they hit me with on my order. They contacted me back and will reimburse the shipping charge.......... I wonder, does Sears sell Depends?

My first post here and I just bought one of the Sears 17543 routers. They had two left in stock at my local Sears store and I got one of them.

I'm planning on making some speaker spacer rings for a car audio install.

I've been lurking here for a few days and this place is a wealth of information.

I've never used a router so I'll be posting some noob questions soon.

HI
That's great, you may want to look real hard at the Jasper jig, made for the speaker installs.

That looks like exactly what I need!

A thought I've been mulling over in my head how to cut the rings I'll need to make.

I'll be using the rings to push my new speakers away from the door glass.

So the circles will need to be cut twice. Once for the O.D. and once for the I.D. I'm assuming I would cut the O.D. first and the I.D. last.

I was thinking of using MDF but if someone has a better wood choice please let me know. With the MDF I'll need to coat it with something (varnish) since it may be exposed to moisture being inside the door. Now I'm thinking that a non-wood choice may be better, such as plexiglass.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
