I purchased a number of tenon cutters from Lee Valley back in Nov. 2002.
Well for whatever reason, I never had a need for the 2" version until the

from cutting smoothly. I shot Lee Valley a note just to let them know and
whether there was something I could do to fix it. I got an email today
saying they're sending me a new one. Great customer service!
I recently needed to cancel a portion of an order. I called, but they were
closed. They said to leave a message, which I did.
Lo, and behold, the item in my order was correctly cancelled.
I am not accustomed to having messages actually listened to by a human.
I agree. It doesn't get much better.

the order has shipped, it cannot be canceled." I was furious and am
now battling this out through the credit card company (I sent back the
I recieved a gift of a small set of their in-house screwdrivers, magnetic
tips and polished wood handles. My only complaint is that they are so
darned good looking, I rarely will use them for any practical purpose.
