This used t be the case but not any more. I'm in the process of writting a
nasty letter to their presiden complaining about their pricing. They came
very close to loosing a $500 sale because they refused to give me a part
number for a welder that was on sale but I didn't have the catalog any
more. When asked wht the woman said that that was their policy but they
would refund the difference in cost within a year ifthey advertised it
