I received the following e-mail message from Leigh late yesterday. You may want to visit their web site, and look around. Note: I am not paid on a per-click basis by Leigh, or any other sponsor.
Disclosure: Leigh is one of my sponsors; I am never paid for promoting the use of their products. I sometimes receive tools, for evaluation purposes. I never receive or accept cash, or any other form of payment, from Leigh or any other of my sponsors, for the reviews I do.
I want to share the announcement, because it might save you a little cash — the price increase is effective September 1, 2010:
Super Jig 12″ Dovetail Jig: The 12 ” Super Jig list price will increase to $275 from $259
Super Jig 18″ Dovetail Jig: The 18″ Super Jig list price will increase to $375 from $359
Super FMT Mortise & Tenon Jig: The Super FMT Jig list price will increase to $499 from $449
FMT Pro Mortise & Tenon Jig: The FMT Pro Mortise & Tenon Jig list price will increase to $989 from $929
Fortunately, we have been able to hold our prices steady on 95% of our product line for the Fall 2010 season. However, the US and Canadian list price of the following four products will increase effective September 1, 2010.
If you have been on the fence about buying one of the jigs, now might be the time to do it. I have been a very happy user of several of the Leigh jigs for many years; they are an essential part of work in my shop.
Request: If you buy one of the jigs, take the time to learn its use. Have plenty scrap on hand, and learn the ins and outs — you will be glad to did. However, this might result in dreams about jig setup and use (not bad for critical projects).
