« Part 1: New 14" bandsaw in my future? Part 2 of New Shinys!! series Part 3: MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!!! »

(That was my happy scream!)


Ok so Sears had the Craftsman 21833 Contractor Saw on sale for $100 off to craftsman club members, so I been scrimping and saving and working to earn enough to get it before the sale runs out on the 27th. Well today I happen to look at the site and I see they have a free delivery thing going on (I only live 5 mins away from the nearest sears but hey, if its free…) and anyways, it would quality for an additional 15% off if I get it by the 19th, and I’m all like FFFFFFUUUUUUUU theres no way I’ll get my next check by then (my pay period ends tommorrow, but it takes at least a week before I get it)

So I’m all sad and annoyed (this is an extra $67 savings we’re talkin about) when I discover something wonderful. It qualifies for layaway. Layaway is only $83. OMG I HAVE $83!!!

SO long story short, its all set up and done, and I have it on layaway, and the grand total for my shiny new table saw with all the discounts and club bonuses and things and whatnot….$382 (orig $549). Its especially exciting since this is my first REAL woodworking tool, this is like a whole new level of awesome for me, and I rarely get awesome opportunities this. I am so freakin happy right now you’d think I was getting molested by a pack of rabid 19 yr old redheads with daddy issues (hey I’m single on valentines day, I’m allowed a fantasy or two right?) :D

The only thing left to say, and pardon my language here but this is amazingly appropriate…..

Wait a minute, I’m out of breath. By the time I got to the end of your post I was jumping up and down yelling “You da Man, You da Man, Who’s your daddy” “You go big daddy”. And then this 19 yo redhead knocked on my door and I opened it and said “Did you bring your saw”. Then the flashback ended and I realized I should have ask did she bring her sister. Your gonna love your new TS. We need pics when you get it put together.
