Maybe they're keeping a low profile so distributors can sell off their on-hand stock?
Probably true! However, you would think that this news would be all over the woodworking sites; blogs, vendors, forums...nada, nyet, nine, nothing! No one is officially acknowledging anything is different.
I know this can happen with any vendor, but usually there is some rumor ahead of time that alerts you to the pending change. Nothing came out until a couple of day into April when I came across the announcement.
I can't remember where I came across it, only that I was searching for info on the 403XX planer that was due out in the middle of March looking for an update...that was the first week of April.
I'm sure, that, eventually, you'll see SC products on sale at reduced prices. The question is, who would buy any knowing that you may not be able to get parts for whatever you buy!
