Is it just me, or does it seem ridiculous that DeWalt will charge you $280 for a 12″ compound miter saw and then try to hit you up for $35 for a “material clamp” (a hunk of metal with a screw on it), $30 for a “crown stop” (a bent piece of sheet metal), and $25 for a “length stop” (a short metal bar).
So, for 12.5% of the original purchase price, I can buy a hunk of metal with a screw on it. That’s like buying a $30,000 car and the auto maker trying to charge you $3,000 for fog lights.
I find this incredibly short sighted on DeWalt’s part. How to piss off your new customers. Sure, they deserve to make a profit on accessories, but they can make 100% by charging me $12.95 for the bloody clamp.
Is it me, or is this company making a mistake with this stuff?
