Dear Sir,

We are very sorry to hear that our first generation custom made six-in-one screwdriver did not live up to your screw driving expectations of being able to drive nearly as many screws as the Titanic made Trans-Atlantic voyages.

We take our product design and customer service very seriously, and have sacked everyone involved with the first product line. At considerable time and expense we have completely retooled our product line and would like to offer you a replacement from our second generation line of cherry six-in-one screwdrivers.

As you were unable to fully enjoy your custom made, one of a kind, mahogany six-in-one screwdriver for Christmas, we will make sure that you will get the pleasure you would expect out of your new, cherry six-in-one screwdriver, for Easter.

Further, we will hand deliver your replacement to you via courier from New Hampshire to Texas before the weekend.

We will even go so far as to guarantee that you’ll get 1000 times the performance, use and satisfaction! You’ve got my name on it!

A name is a name is a name. But a warranty is something that you can stand behind. 1000 time the previous use though still equals 0.

Dear NHHT (New Hampshire Hand Tools),

Thanks for the confirmation and explanation of my replacement and its delivery method. Hand carried, impressive! I’ll be sure to meet the courier at the airport. Looks great and I can’t wait to put it to the test. I only hope that multiple uses combined with sweat and pressure to not destroy your signature.

Please send along a catalog with all your other tools available, I’m sure I’ll be interested. Can’t beat this service.

No prob… now I just gotta get this over to your parents house in time for their flight!..

I fully expect the signature to wear off over time – a testament to the durability of said tool (and the ph level of your paws)

I’ll see what I can scare up. My cedars aren’t very big so I’ll have to send something small but I’ll see if I can find some pieces that “talk” to me. No problem on the Osage-Orange that stuff is in all shapes and sizes. I’ll try to send a selection, within airline weight limits of course.

Rob – I’m picturing that “something small” in the form of a twig or something haha

Osage-Orange – I just planted one of those last year.

Thanks Rob, Fill up a carryon (or whatever you can.) could make some small projects, or turn some things with whatever you care to send up… a second mallet perhaps? FIgure I’ll take advantage of all the space they’ll have left in their luggage after bringing down the screwdriver and all those easter eggs (if they don’t get confiscated).

Otherwise I’ll try to talk you into filling up one of those $8.00 prepaid boxes from the post office. – I wonder if people who hate their mailman fill those up with bricks. “Hey what’s in this box?” “Oh we’re moving the house, one brick at a time.” ;)

yes, but all the bubblewrap, padding, security, countermeasures…. actually it’s in one of those large cases with a foam cut out in the center… you know that they carry cameras, guns or plutonium in (in the movies). He’ll keep the foam of course and can fill that puppy up with wood for the return trip!

just unscrew the copper piece Dick, can use the good ol duracell or rechargable ones, though It runs nearly forever on a single charge!

Ms Debbie – Planted an Osage orange hmm, that’s cool. I don’t think anyone in this area would ever plant one. So many of the uninformed consider them a trash tree with all their thorns and large “horse apple” fruits. It is some of the strongest wood I have encountered though with beautiful color, no staining required. Good for you planting one, they all have to start somewhere.

I guess you either get a male tree or a female tree that will have fruit. I don’t know which I have, yet.

I saw some Osage Orange wood at the wood show – beautiful stuff!!!

I originally planted the tree in my yard to add to the “retreat” effect of my property, symbolizing the “thorns of life” surrounded by the beauty of life, a part of the beauty of life, etc.

When I bought it I had to read up on it and there is quite the history to the tree and I now love it even more. I hope that we can train it to grow mostly upwards rather than sprawling out, grabbing anyone without 20 feet of it.
