I just got the latest GW catalog (V.36). Usually I drool
over the glossy close-ups of chisels, drill bits & clamps - they
certainly do make everything look glamorous with all the
shavings and sawdust placed just "so".
I flip to pg 92 and their "Old Fashioned Egg Beater" for
"just" $59.95 and described as "splendid and solidŠnicely formed".
And goes onŠ " Ivory-like composition handles -
you won't believe how nice it feels in the handŠ".
GW used to be full of power tools & stuff...jeez!!
Maybe I got a special edition sice it was addressed to my wife
who ordered a Record low angle block plane for me a few years
ago for Christmas.
Do they they still sell workshop stuff?
