Default Sears gets one more try

OK so I said I've had it with them, well I guess not. Saw the post about the price, checked it out and it is 79.99. Where to get the money? Well about that time I remembered my son wanting to get his cat a climbing pole thing. Well he didn't want to spend 100.00 on some piece of junky thing!! Anyone see a match made in the old manís shop?? Yep I will get it next week and Kitty will get her palace soon after. He wants to start basic and move up from there. And just in case anyone was worried no there will be no kitty posts, just the router.

Good luck with that. I just checked inventory for 4 sears in my area and 2 routers are in stock. Im going with the wife in the morning for insane friday, got buy stuff for an adopted family, while Im there I plan on checking em out. Maybe a rain check if their out. For 80 bucks I'll try it once. Home depot and lowes have some sales also. Sears is 5 am to 11 am only!!

Thank You Veterans

I'm going for one too. If they're out, since its not a doorbuster, I'm going to ask for an "equal or better" or a rain check, as the fine text on that very page of their ad refers to. The worst they can say is "NO!" Hopefully I won't need to!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

There are 4 stores within 20 miles each had 4, but not wanting to get into black Friday mania, I am trying the mail order route. I got a conformation number and a date to expect it. If it comes great, if not--well this would be neither the greatest nor the last diapointment in my life. My you have a sucessful hunt too.

No Howard, that one lists for 219.00 as a combo.
Shop for Routers & Laminate Trimmers in the Tools department of Sears.com. I think the one I am getting will be great for my purposes I also have my Ridgid combo and it is going to stay in the router table and the Sears will be the free hand router. I may put another router station at the opposite end of my table.

I have a piece of phenolic (sp checker no help here) resin 1/4 thick 2'X4' would that be strong enough to makes a mounting plate from for the sears.

The Sears store told me on extreme sales they reach a point where the computer system will not allow them to place any more orders on an out of stock item. On a national level each manufacturer has a maximum of deliverables in a given time period they must be able to meet for their contract. The system won't let them exceed that.

We did all the shopping for the adopted family and I had some time still so I dropped by sears and got the only one in the area. The shop vacs were going by the pallet, the router area looked bare, but whats this............ a missed place box....... could it be...... YES it is. Among the plastic router tables on the bottom shelf, MY new router combo.

Craftsman 2 hp Soft Start Fixed and Plunge Base Router w/Electronic Feedback, 11 amp

79.99 + a 12.00 3 yr warranty + tax ( minus another in store discount) = 89.99 out the door. I'll post some pics after I get done pawing it. I already like the built in 3 led's.

Thank You Veterans
