Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Well, Laurie - you've hit on the main problem with the BCTW business model: you can't get their old tools! That's why I check ebay twice a day. There's quite a trade on BCTW tools there, though you...

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Was it smaller than you thought it would be? That's usually what I find with the BCTs.

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Tim, those table saws scare the crap out me. And with the TS55, MFT's, OF101 and guide rails, there's not much I need a table saw for. On the other hand, I'm not trying to make money at this either.

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

I finally got an invoice, but no shipping info yet.

On the other hand, I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with this thing!

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Thanks John. I honestly did not know the difference. Now I can say I learned something today. Wasn't a waste after all.

Fred: one wonders why you bought the CAP (see John - I learned) if you have...

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

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...

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Okay, gents. I'm no longer a Bozo. I ordered my Kerf Maker. Yes - only one. I only have 2 tools in my shop that make kerfs, for crying out loud! So I didn't achieve kerfection, but I figure it's the...

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

Hey - I had the same thought, Wayne. I had just bought the CS-2 and the mortise and tenon attachment, so I called up BCT. I wasn't expecting that they'd really give me the CS-6 for $14, particularly...

You've come to the right place for that, McKenzie! We're all master's of rationalization when it comes to expensive tools (power or otherwise). If you like, one of us could write a note to your wife...

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. Expanding to...
