I have been considering getting a belt/disc sander. The hitachi seems to be a favorite around here but it is currently about $195 on amazon. I know this unit isnt in the same class but for $29....

Which model, did you get one and do you have a scan of the reciept?

X2 - If anyone could scan a receipt I would appreciate it. I would also like the SKU so I can call my "local" store to make sure they have it before I drive all the way down there. Thanks.

I picked one up last week $65 on clearance. I thought it was a good deal then but $29 grab it. For what I am using it for it is fine. It is noisey but it has decent dust pick up on the disk side but lousy on the belt side. I am using it mainly for pen and stopper turning to true the blanks and used the belt to change the profile on a scraper, but then used my Tormek clone to finish it.

Called my local store and they couldn't find any in stock anywhere in the area. Price was still showing as $99 too. I don't know what the deal is with Lowe's around here, but I never get in on these hot deals...

Thats great - both that you got one and you will scan the receipt

I hope I can get one of my local Lowes to honor it.

I take it that this was a general clearance and not a one off return that was being sold from their odds and ends table.
