Default Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

My guess is that they are just not big enough to keep retooling to continually make their range of tools. They make one batch of one tool, and then go on to the next tool. No going back.

Just a guess. It could also be that John wants to keep his customers wanting more...
I don't have as many Festools as Fred. Or Marcou's, or Brese's, or Lie-Nielsen's, or Lee Valley's, or Blue Spruce's, or Harold and Saxon's, or...
