I also got the last tool that I ordered from Lee Valley at the WIA show. It was backordered. So it's under the tree, too. It actually will be a surprise, as I can't remember what it was!
It might be fun to sign up for the Bridge City Tools subscription program and never go to the web site or look at their mail and just be totally surprised when beautiful new tools show up at your door.

Wouldn't it be cool to be rich enough to do that!?!

My name is Michael and I've been BCT free since 1994.
(I bought a bunch of stuff in '93)

My name is John, and my BCT problem started by getting in with the wrong crowd.

My name is Peter, and I'm both a BCTW addict and a pusher. And proud of it!

My name is Ron and I've been a BCT user for several months...

It's all a blur at this point but I think that Poto was my pusher...

My name is Fred and Peter is my pusher. It just seems wrong that the pusher does not reimburse the pushee as the pusher has quite literally attacked the pushee's wallet. I ask you all, does this not seem fair?
