Page 1 of 2  

Just got my new jointer blade sharpening hone.

Just got done trying it out. Easy to use and setup. Awesome.
No more waiting 3-4 weeks to get my blades back from the sharpener.
Usual disclaimer: Not affiliated just a very satisfied customer.

Careful though with Lee Valley. They will get their clutches into you and eat all your spare cash. This is the end of "spare cash" as you have known it. lol

agreed. The only possible solution is to convince friends and family members to spend THEIR money at Lee Valley (Christmas, Father's day, birthday gifts for you) so that YOU don't have to. There are no other options. I've managed to get about 1/2 my LV fix that way.

I had some spare cash in my pocket when I left work today. It mysteriously turned into Lee Valley shelf brackets on my way home.

When Robin was in Saskatoon and touring our plant, he let something slip about another venture they're considering (and no, I won't tell so don't ask)...
My response was "You bastard! How much *more* of my money do you want?"

Hey, Rob, have you guys installed that online program where we just electronically send our weekly paychecks to LVT and you remit what we don't spend there into our bank accounts? I remember you talking about it a short while ago. ;)

Hey Robin,
Don't mean to hijack this thread, but there has been a question burning in the back of my mind.
You ARE planning to ship the BesseyK clamps that were ordered back in November? Rest of the order shipped, but the clamps were on back order. I was not charged... Please tell me you are...
Thanks,
Greg G.

The deposit part, right? Remitting the remainder comes next year or the year after, eh?

Well, it was my own fault really. I couldn't make it up to an LV store until the last day of the month which was the last day of the Bessey sale. As it is, considering the difficulty I had getting up to the store, I'll have a friend who lives nearby pick up the clamps when they come in and bring them down to me. I'm going to be really interested in how well these clamps work for me. I've only used some Pony clamps and a few cheap pipe clamps before.

Hi Greg -
Yup - shows Jan 6th on our system.... we just sent a bunch a week or two ago too...
Everyone who ordered up to Oct 25 has theirs already (unless a CC was declined)...
Won't be any charge until the clamps actually ship...
Bessey's doing their best to keep up!
Cheers -
Rob

You mean there's something left that you didn't spend? You obviously missed a couple of pages of catalog. :-)

Between the WW tools, gardening, and hardware cats, that's not far off, Mark. So many tools, so little time (and money.) <sigh>

I heard that they were opening a Lee Valley wing at The Betty Ford Centre...right next to the wing where they keep the fools who bought Taunton's Fine Cooking magazine.... and looked at the ads...
