First, that they were supposed to be in stock & ship out on the 14th (this friday).

And second (I love this part...), it was a data-entry error on somebody's part there at Grainger - they were never supposed to be that price, and the error's been corrected now. They were supposed to be marked down to $463 from the Grainger's normal $724 price (Grainger is usually somewhat high like that), but the $463 got typo-ed to $163 instead when it was entered.

They're honoring existing orders (), but no more can be ordered at that $163 price. I checked their site, and they're listed back at $724.50 now. Makes me wish I'd ordered more than one...

Lone Kimono, did I say "THANK YOU"...?
