    Default Lee Valley Tools

    I just realized the other day that Lee Valley Tools was a Canadian Company that many of you guys probably do not know about. It is a candy store for woodworkers. They do mail order to the States. Check out their online catalogs and you will be blown away. I cannot even begin to list the "everything" they have. Stuff you will not find anywhere, stuff you never thought you could find, and stuff you did not even know existed. They can be pricey but the stuff is high quality and they are committed to customer service. You must check out the catalogs.

    Have ordered from them many times - never had a problem. I would've phrased it as "They are pricey" though - but then just go compare it to Garret-Wade and you'll feel better. Lee Valley does have a lot of stuff that nobody else does.

    About 12 years ago I met the Owner at a Philly Wood Workers Show and he was doing a Demo on the drill bit device that put round pegs on Rough Wood timber like a pencil sharpener. He had a Drill and a Stock of small logs and was making outdoor chairs. I think he was the first to develop it... The King of Prussia Convention Center is now a Dusty Parking lot and Condo's...

    Great Catalog...

    LOML is very familiar with the boxes with the green writing I LOVE both Lee Valley's products and their customer service. Rob Lee is an oft poster over on Woodnet and is always quick to answer questions or offer help.

    Second year - low angle jack with all the extra blades
