yeah its a mouthful I know but I am finally ready to get started on this
lets start off with today is my 34th birthday and I got to go shopping today
went to grizzly showroom to buy an SX3 but they had none in stock which was a bummer, so I asked him to sell me the demo model nogo he said people could have ....fiddled with it, I told him it didnt matter to me but nonetheless he said no, BUT!! whilst shopping around the salesman came up and said they had one in the QC dept that was for sale as damaged but was not, It was a model they had stripped a couple of parts off for a customer, but they had replaced all the parts as well as some extras I guess. there was 4 extra handwheels, even handwheels not for the SX3, 2 extra scales, extra x axis leadscrew, and other misc stuff all for $900 bucks, and to top that off the R8 er collet holder I also was purchasing (holder plus 8 collets) regularly $190 was discontinued so he sold me the one under the glass for $90 bucks.
I have a friend who works there and they even gave his discount on top of every other discounts, long story short I walked out of there with a truckload off stuff and still spent less than the stock SX3
