    Felder Machinery, in Nanaimo, also sells SawStop (and Festool, too). Or so the fellow told me on the phone. He also told me that they'd pcik me up and drop me off at the ferry terminal if I ever wanted to come over and visit their showroom. :-) On a lovely day, I will be severely tempted to go as a walk-on on the ferry for a nice sea cruise to the Island and aback.

      I have dealt with KMW tools and they are nice people. It's good they have a store in Red deer but why they don't open one here in Edmonton?
      As for SawStop, it would be nice to see more than on place carry it.
      One thing I don't like about it is the strict price policy sawstop enforces on all its distributers.
      Remember, we are here to share, learn, and enjoy. Relax.

        Good stuff costs what it costs. Many of the manufacturers hang their distributors out to dry on pricing. I think its nice that the guy who does the work gets rewarded with the sales instead of doing all the work and the order goes to the lowest bidder. Naturally I am a little biased on this subject.

          Darth Frog: You know I always seem to forget about Chris in Nanaimo. He gets his machines thru his connection in Winterpeg.

          Mreza: KMS aquired the Red Deer strore in an aquisition when what they wanted was Kelowna. My understanding is they have no plans at this time to expand in Alberta. That being said if HOT collapses and implodes you never know.

          SawStop is the type of product that requires specialist and indurstrial service tech to keep machines running. So when they find someone to support there product they take care to protect them. This is also the structure for larger industrial machines manufacturers. Really its in the best intrests of the Manufacturer,Dealer and End User to have a strong loyal network behind these expensive machines.
