As one of the owners of Garrett Wade (full discloser) I can assure you we aren’t “in trouble”. Though we do offer lots of special deals for email subscribers. (Not a plug -just the facts.)

We have stopped selling most hand planes (I remember fondly the days when we had 8-10 spreads in our catalog filled with planes). This is due mostly to lack of demand and a few manufacturers going out of business. Many of the planes we sold were made in England and Germany. Given the exchange rates in the last few years they got to be really pricey. Our customers didn’t seem interested in the less expensive Chinese & Indian made planes.
