I’ve been drooling over those saws for some time now, as I slowly accumumulated other hand tools that seemed to me (at the time) to be higher priority for my slow decent into galunacy (how’s that for a new word?).

I was just feeling the time was right to dive into hand saws (that’s right – I still use a table saw and a bandsaw). But what’s this? No Wenzloff saws to be had – his site doesn’t seem to be working and The Best Things is backordered.

Poop…

Why isn’t his site working – or does he have a real site for real galoots? After all, I may have 20 different hand planes (including molding planes), more braces and auger bits than you can shake a hardwood dowel at, and mortice guages galore, but I must confess, I’m still just a galoot poseur.

Maybe his real site has some kind of “ident-scan” that weeds folks like me out?

I guess I’ll have to keep cutting my tenons with a Japanese backsaw.

But I miss his site – even of to just look at the pretties and drool and dream and say, “Someday…”

Is it this www.wenzloffandsons.com site? It worked for me.. Lee Valley is also selling them if The Best Things wait is to long.

Hi KayBee – Yep that’s the site!

The home page (I guess) works fine, but all of the links take me to a “404 – Component not found” error page. The only link that works is to the sick monkey blog.

I think I might expplode if I can’t get those Seaton saws… :-(

A little bit of stupid goes a long way – HAH! That’s great. I gots me a lot of stupid. How far will that go? :-P

The links work for me. Maybe on of the computer/web gurus here can help. Not a good place for me to surfing around : ) Could get very expensive, very fast. Somedays, stupid just seems to go on forever…. lol

I got to a site last night that seemed to work. The onlt site that came up when I posted was the site with the black background and yellew type.

I liked that site – but so long as I can order saws, who cares??
