This past Friday was known as as Black Friday… they day when retailers traditionally have sold enough items to get out of the red (debt) and into the black (profitability) for the year.
Tomorrow, however, is known as Cyber Monday, when workers with computers return to their offices to begin online shopping… on company time!
Since online commerce is a relatively new phenomena, this week’s question has to do with buying woodworking tools online. Sure, there’s nothing like holding a tool in your hands to get the feel and balance of a tool. However, there are other times when the only time to get the exact tool you need is to go online.
From classic hand tools to the latest cutting edge power offerings, woodworkers can find a dazzling array of tools to drool over.
So, this week’s question – what’s the largest woodworking tool you have ever purchased online? Was it a simple package delivery, or did it involve a forklift and a large tractor trailer?

Bought a steel city bandsaw from the highland woodworking site last year, and have bought a couple of tools off the Grizzly site.
I bought my steel city table saw online to save the great state of Iowa the hassel of collecting all that sales tax.
Two things-A two stage dust collector (top only-w/o 55 gal. drum) and a cool oak leg vise w/2″ threaded screw……….
I bought my Grizzly table saw online. Although I bought it from Grizzly, I did it through their eBay store to take advantage of an eBay cash back offer.
