So yesterday I went in to the new Saskatoon Lee Valley to get some use
out of my 10% off coupon.
Decided to make it worthwhile, and bought some bessey clamps, the low
angle jack, the mkII honing guide, the 38 degree blade (which was
confusingly labelled "high angle"--what do they call the 50 degree
one?), and a few other things. I even had a project all lined up for
this weekend that would make use of most of them.
I get home and realize that instead of the honing guide they gave me the
box of all the little spare parts for the guide. (Note to Robin--you
might want to label the spare part box something *other*
than the part
number of the guide itself.)
So today I call the store and explain what happened and mention that I'd
like to bring it back and exchange it for the real thing. They say the
sooner the better, so after work I hop on my bicycle (wife's gone for
the weekend with the car) and head across the city. (Note to Robin--you
might consider a bike rack, there was another bike just leaning up by
the door as there's nothing to lock to.)
Turns out they're out of stock on the guide, but getting more in on
Monday. Would've been nice if they'd told me that on the phone...
Ah well, guess I'll just have to use my current crappy guide for now,
hopefully all the new blade will need is a microbevel.
