Just found this on Rocklers Facebook page. I thought some of you might be interested if you did not know about it. Copied this from part of their post:

Freud’s LEGENDARY WORKSHOP-ON-WHEELS, a state-of-the-art mobile workshop, will be stopping at Rockler stores nationwide over the first several months of 2011.

Thanks Gary,

The truck has been to our store in the past. Those guys really know their stuff. It would be worth anyone’s time to check it out.

I’ve also seen this truck. It is impressive.

Speaking of Freud – I’m curious about their commitment to marketing and supporting their dowelling joiner. I know Freud changed ownership recently and I sense that their phasing out the dowelling joiner (even before it really gets off the ground).

If anyone goes to their truck, please ask the representative about this and report back.

Good deal. Do you plan on making it out to the Royal Oak store this April? I’m going to put this one on the calender. Thanks for the heads up.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Kristoffer..I would like to make it in April. I’ll also have to mark the calender (when I get a 2011 calender). I’m wondering if there are any onsite deals. I would like to get a couple more sets of Freud’s rail and stile bits and a couple Industrial series saw blades.
