Title: Woodpeckers Price Increase
Post by: m8 on September 30, 2021, 04:30 PM
Just as a heads up if anyone has a Woodpeckers Wish List they may want to take a look for any recent price increases.  I had my first project I needed to use their Autoline Drill Guide for and decided to go ahead and purchase their Cordless Drill Station to store the Drill Guide.  When I went to complete my order I thought wait a minute the price is higher than I thought it was originally.  Sure enough I found the original email announcing the Cordless Drill Station back in July and confirmed it was priced at $170 regular pricing but now its $210.  In one of their recent YouTube Videos I remember Jeff saying that due to the rise in the cost of raw materials they were going to have to institute a price increase.  I can't say for sure but they probably aren't passing the entire increase in the cost of raw materials onto their customers.

Ongoing theme for everybody. Raise prices on anything that is possible and blame it on pandemic

Pretty clever flop for sheet goods.

Wouldn't a spring clamp work as well. I imagine that little thing is close to $75 or more from Woodpeckers.

I'm wrong only $35! Spring clamp would be better.
