In case you don't want to bother calling or emailing Lee Valley to
request a recent catalog, you can just buy one on eBay - bidding
starts at only $4.99 with shipping. And it's not the heavy,
inconvenient full woodworking catalog - this is the handy 40-page

I wonder why there are no bids yet?

That would be a totally different story. Rob, are you listening? If
someone was auctioning an autographed copy of this year's full
woodworking catalog, with the drool-inducing handplane centerfold,
that might generate some interest.
Or if someone found a few old LV catalogs with the cover upside down
or something like that, maybe they'd be worth a lot like baseball
cards with mistakes.
I just left eBay looking for router bits. Page after page of Asian
junk. $2.99 for bit, $20.99 for shipping. I think it will be a good
while before I go back to eBay for anything. I guess some people get
deals but I have never found one. A few years ago I needed a saw
sharpening vice. Ordered from eBay. It arrived. A week later I was
perusing a catalog (Lee Valley, I believe) and saw a new one for less
than half what I paid. P. T. Barnum knew what he was talking about.
David F. Eisan frequents the wrec and quite often has Delta or Jesada
quality bits and sets . I've bought several sets from him - top quality and
fair price. No affiliation other than a satisfied customer.
