I was planning on starting building the Woodsmith #183 machinist tool chest as a gift and when I tried to order the hardware kit from machinistchest.com I got a message that it is out of stock, but after looking around their web site I noticed all their products are out of stock.

Does anybody know if they are still in business?

Any ideas where can I get the same hardware kit for the tool chest?

I just called their phone # and there is a message indicating the owner and operator has passed away and that they will reopen in a couple of months.

I wrote the e mail address, and for some reason the reply I get is just a CC of the e mail I sent.
Says on the web site, they are to open this month.
I need some items, Hope they don’t raise the price’s and the service is still good.
Any other source besides Gerstner?

This is why nothing appears to be in stock.

Currently the Website is not taking orders while we reorganize the business.
Please send any requests to Sales@machinistchest.com
We are still working to get the estate in order before taking orders.
(Planned RE-Opening January 2014!) Thanks for your patience and condolences.

I understand that, but they say.

Please send any requests to Sales@machinistchest.com

But they reply with a CC of the e mail I sent.
maybe someone here can e mail them and see if they reply.
I would like to know when they are going to re open.
