Where are you seeing this on the site? All I see ever is "Cordless Screw Gun DWC 18-4500 Li-Basic USA"
Am I missing something?
I checked the site this morning, and in addition to the 2200 router and C18, a Delta sander and a CXS were posted.

Also, discounts look like they're mostly back to 25%

Those are the top 10 fastest selling items since early December when I started keeping track.

How would a regular guy ever get in on any of this stuff?

"Regular guy" as in non-FOG/Slack members? The Slack channel only has 114 members (including a few duplicates), of which 83 are flagged as "inactive". With only 31 active members, I think lots of people outside of Slack are scoring plenty of Recon products.

On April 5th, an active Recon day when 9 products were listed, there were only 21 clicks from Slack to Recon for the entire day:


I'm sure there are many people who are keeping track of Recon through other means. I think @GoingMyWay uses a browser extension to keep track of posted changes, which he then posts in here.

On a side note, there are 60179 members on FOG.

The PDC is 20% off, but the other drills after that are 15%.  Considering you are buying used and lose 2 years warranty, that sounds like a deal I will pass on.

I ended up getting that. I don’t need the impact but the track saw will be a great help. I’ve the TS55REQ and have had it since ‘13. My absolute favorite tool but I’ve wanted the ease of cordless for a long time.

One of those back in December may have been me.  I can't remember if it was the 75 or the 500, but there was at least one time that I was keeping an eye out for something and happened to refresh just as the prior item was selling and before I got the Slack notice.

As far as using Slack, I just watch for the notification on my phone's lock screen, and go to the open tab on my laptop to purchase, if it was something I wanted.  Now that my boy is getting ready to crawl and work has picked way up, I haven't been seriously on Recon in quite some time, and have been away from this site almost as much.

As far as using Slack, I just watch for the notification on my phone's lock screen, and go to the open tab on my laptop to purchase, if it was something I wanted. 

Pretty much the same for me. I rarely click through to Recon from Slack but in the event something does comes up that I actually want, I've got my phone setup so I'm roughly 3-4 taps away from completing a purchase, just in case.

As for the Slack bot, when I first wrote it, I wanted to buy tools. Now that I've got most of the tools I wanted, the bot is an ongoing coding exercise to make it more efficient, faster, and useful (and to learn some things along the way).

This is what I see behind the scenes in the console when the apps are running:

The left side is how I get the status for active and discontinued products. It runs every 5 minutes, grabs a list of SKUs that need to be checked based on certain metrics (time since last update, current status, etc.). It then checks those SKUs against the different APIs their CMS uses, and stores the results. In this case, only one SKU (574368 - MFK 700 EQ-SET Trim Router) met the criteria and was checked.

Though, it's not always right as evidenced by SKU 769941. If you enter the SKU in the site search, it pulls up a different SKU with a picture but also provides a link to the correct SKU. Sometimes they are swapped. At this point, it's a guess so the bot provides a link in Slack to check for yourself.



The right side is the actual bot, which runs every 4 seconds (the first bot version ran in 30 second intervals). Wake, check, sleep. When it finds something, it grabs data stored by the product status bot, preps the alert message, then sends the alert to Slack. The alert engine is somewhat decoupled from the bot which would make it easy to write additional alert engines (SMS, forums, etc.), though I'm pretty happy with Slack.

PRO Remodeler Pack just posted.

This pack is a pretty good deal even at its retail price because of the extra inclusions and the break from buying everything separately.  Getting a Recon discount on top of that makes it a pretty amazing deal for a hobbyist.  The Remodeler pack was on my short list before I gave in and started buying things separately.
