Dear Valued Customers,

We offered the Wood Sharp 3000 on our site at a closeout price during our Clearance Event promotion. Due to an overwhelming response for the item, we regrettably oversold and subsequently cancelled your order. On behalf of the entire Team, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this issue has caused

We are reaching out to all customers affected via email to resolve this issue. To make this right, we’ve partnered with Darex to secure inventory to fulfill your original order. This inventory will become available over the next 30 business days. If you are still interested in the item, please contact our Resolutions Team at 1-877-467-3057 within the next 10 days and reference your original order number. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. & Saturday/Sunday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., CST. We are awaiting your call and look forward to serving you.

Tish Poullard Resolutions Manager

Just got off the phone with my new order number. Took about 5 min on hold and 5 min to reorder. It was even a little cheaper. I still think it is too good to be true. We will see.

Hrumph.. Would this be the power of the consumer ? And some 26 thousand L-J’s and other woodworkers ?

UNBELEVEABLE ! (and good on H-D for trying to make it right ! )

I’m simply blown away by what they’ve done here. I’m sure as heck am enjoying my new WS 3000 today. Several gouges are getting a much needed honing..

Got mine ordered again.

See, the power of the pen?! When a significant amount (how many LJs made comments?) of customers make an issue of something, corporate might just listen. They used to tell us when I worked there that market research showed that the typical SATISFIED customer told no one but the typical UNSATISFIED customer told SEVEN other friends (potential customers) who in turn each told seven more, and so on. That’s what happened on this forum. That concerns a company!

Well done, fellow LJs! We made an impact.

I will call and reorder mine tomorrow. I must say HD went up a notch in my view. Might this goodwill be extended to providing good quality plywood as well? (one can always hope, right?)

76 bucks—ramble we get nothing like that in Canada. More like 249 plus 13 percent tax…I’m filled with hate all of a sudden
