There must be a Renaissance in hand tool wood working. There must be. I ordered some chisels from Lie Nielsen over 8 weeks ago. Called today and they are still out of stock and it “might be a few more weeks.” they having trouble keeping up with demand.
The Starrett square that ordered at the same time – yep still out of stock.
I ordered a tenon saw from Bad Axe Tools 11 weeks ago and Mark informed me that he would email at the start of production. Haven’t heard a thing but I emailed him today. He did let me know up front that the que was 12 – 14 weeks.
I sent a D-8 to Matt Cianci of The Saw Blog for a professional sharpening because Mark from Bad Axe stated he was swamped. This was 7 weeks ago and shortly there after Matt posted the he was inundated with sharpening requests.
It seems that many times that when I look at hand tool wood working course to attend the websites states ” sorry, already full”
Is it just me or do others feel like they are trying to enter a crowded room.
