I purchased their MKII sharpening system around 9-10 months ago. It's
worked very well
for me and I'm glad I plunked down the cash.
Today, I get a USPS Priority package in the mail from Lee Valley which is
odd because I haven't
ordered anything from them recently. Inside is a note explaining that
several owners of the same
sharpener requested some sort of cover for it. Consequently, Lee Valley put
together a cover of nylon
and sent me one. Even though I bought the thing ages ago. There aren't
many companies that
have this level of service.
As long as I'm buying stuff they sell, Lee Valley will be the first place I
Dear Robin (Lee)
I just purchased a couple of the Grr-Ripper instructional DVDs from
your web site. I don't think that they have shipped yet. If I , and
several others, request a DVD player to go along with them, what are my
odds of getting one? You could ship the items together to reduce

Thank you, (Another satisfied customer in MN)

Hi Eric -
Sorry - but we don't do the tailed stuff....:)
BTW - I can't believe the price of DVD players... $39 CDN, with a remote, a
cable, AND batteries for the remote...at that price - I'm surprised it came
in a box....
I was looking at grinder stands. Tractor Supply has a good looking one for
$29.8?. I figured I could not buy the materials to build one for that. Dunno if
it's boxed or not. Then, Homier (not a classy tool joint, but grinder stands
aren't high tech) pops with one for under 20 bucks.
I'm sitting here scratching my head over which to buy, and then realized I need
a new CD player for the shop. The grinder can sit on a bench for a few more
So I need to find the best 30 buck CD player in town. I already got snookered
into a DVD player for the idjit box...we've used it twice for that, with the
VCR part getting more use. Seems all the DVD movies, or all those we have, are
letterboxed which my wife hates.
I won't even ask for recommendations on the CD player, because brand names on
electronic gear have become totally meaningless.

Some DVD players in the setup will allow you to select the video size
format. Be it letterbox or a normal TV screen size. It's worth
checking the DVD player setup.

And what's _really_ impressive/surprising, is that they can make the
darn thing in China (or wherever China is outsourcing jobs to these
days), package it, ship it, warehouse it, ship it again, stock it,
and sell it, and everyone along the line makes some money.
Alright. I'll show you.
If I order three Grr-Ripper systems from you at a savings of $10 each
over everywhere else, I can buy my own DVD player at Wal-Mart or Best
Buy or something. How do you like them apples? (US saying)
It's true that there's a new VHS vs. Beta thing coming for the next
generation high definition big capacity discs, but Sony's technology is
just one of the new standards. One of them will win. The early adopters
who buy the wrong machine will be screwed.

Not if you are careful in choosing. Years ago many people were buying the
Commodore computer. I figured it was foolish and instead, bought the TI
44a. After all, Texas Instrument would be making those computers and
supporting them for years to come. Maybe I should upgrade?
Still got mine in the basement. Along with a bunch of other useless crap.
But it served its purpose, I got my first taste of programming on that
Isn't Boone (or someone similar) now hawking gold (coins?) on the TV? Maybe
I should get some of those ....
There are two groups coming out with blue laser DVD's. Sony and Toshiba.
Both will play current DVD's (of which there are two formats DVD+ and DVD-).
The question is whether they will play each other's formats.. that is
undecided. To reiterate.. they WILL be backward compatible.

that's pretty impressive...
what is most impressive to me is that they could have sent you a
special deal at maybe 50% off as a "thank you" for being a customer,
and you would probably think it was nice of them..
Good to see some companies still look for and appreciate repeat
business and will spend the time & money needed to get it..
