I was at Lowes today in Chapel Hill and they had the Bosch Colt palm router for $79, regularly $119. Not sure if other Lowes have them.
When needing materials and help loading, I find the employee first and, reading his name tag, ask "John, will you please help me load twelve sheets of OSB onto a cart and then into my truck?" When I send my wife to get something, I always tell her to simply find a warm body, smile and ask "John, my husband sent me for an 1/8 inch aluminum fairmistan, would you show me where it is shelved please?"Nifty router. I grabbed the Makita 18V as I find the reason for a small router is to be nimble, and no cord makes it so. Just got the plunge base for it. really handy now.
Too busy at Lowe's in CH trying to get someone to help load 18 sheets of cement board. A very nice customer helped as no Lowe's employee would bother. No fun loading them single handed into my truck either. So I never got to do a tool isle walk through. Maybe good, as they often "get" me with something that is too nifty to pass up. I want the Cobalt short handle 40V hedge trimmer but it looks like I have to order it.
Right, that attitude'l get you excellent treatment.
