I agree. John seems to have a knack for serious diplomacy. I suggested on his forum that he make a trip to the middle east to see if he can solve some of the pesky problems over there. It makes me want to buy from him all the more.

By the way, did you see how excited everyone was by the idea of the Kerfmaker? John opened up ordering again, just to accommodate the LJ guys who might want one (someone suggested that he make a "bazillion" of them)!

Wow. A great play to get out of a sticky situation.

Plans: free, with suggested donation of $10.

For an additional $49, you can have the item made carefully and right, and save you at least a day's work.

He's gone from victim to hero!

Good job John.

Ned

Thanks to the LJ situation, I was able to preorder one today! I had forgotten that ordering would end on July 20! I finally had some cash to get my preorder in, then came here and read about the extension. PHEW! That was close.

"soon" .........between two to three weeks from when said.

Thanks, Roger.

I hope it IS soon, I'm not getting any younger, and I'd like to use it at least once before Peter inherits it.

And it helps that it doesn't need electricity.

I just now called (4:30pm) & ordered the dead blow mallet that's on special.

They are shipping all of the DJ-1's out tomorrow (Tuesday)!!!!
I'm interested in buying different sizes of bushings beside the ones included -- Mike is working up a list for those & ordering details.

John,

It includes all the bushings they currently offer... It sounded like Ron wanted to get bushings for other size drill bits (i.e. Metric)
