On October 3rd I sent a nice Simond and a pre 1900 Bishop handsaw to Wenzloff and Sons for sharpening. I phoned and Mike who seemed like a very nice guy said they would get right on it as time was available and he did receive them. Heck I even sent more than enough cash to cover the job and shipping. Now no one answers the phone. No one answers the message I left. Now the mailbox is full. No response to Email. I just want my saws back. I heard he may have health problems. Certainly hope all is well. I don’t want to bad mouth anyone because I don’t know the situation other than I am without my saws. But if all is well you know how I feel. Anyone know anything?

RivRk – have you heard anything? I’m interested in purchasing a Harvey Peace panel saw, but ALL saws are out of stock.

They have a wonderful reputation but sometimes something like sickness and other disasters can move in and devistate a small business. Hopefully this hasn’t happened and you can get your saws back. Hopefully, it’s only temporary situation.

No, I have not heard anything. Since the name is Wenzloff and Sons I assume there are at least 2 sons in the business with dad and someone of the three could could respond in 4 1/2 months, if nothing else just tell me there are problems and I will be addressed later. As of now the Attorney General’s office of South Carolina and Oregon are assisting and hoping for resolution before the Federal Trade Commission is involved.
