That should work, John. By then, hopefully, I'll be able to retire, and will have more time for woodworking! I'll make sure you still have my mailing address then... Thanks in advance!

Putuuy,

Will you not be about 97 or so when John is ready to purchase more tools? What are you going to do, gum them?

I own many of the layout tools, but none of the planes or saws. I used to buy about every tool as it came out as they used to have a "club" and would offer the members a discounted price if they purchased when the tool was introduced. I bought most of them until they started to make the planes and other tools that were way over my budget.

I really like using them, they have a nice "heavy" feel to them. I'm not sure if they still offer this, but when I was buying their tools they offered to repair or replaced any damaged tool for (if I remember right) $5. This included dropping a square off the workbench or anything else that might damage a tool.

Tom.

Tom,

I do not know about the $5 repair fee but I do know they still have the club and it appears that you can save significant amounts of money as long as you SPEND significant amounts.
I would love to try any of their tools as they just appear to be so well made.

Fred
