Hi Gang
I thought I would share a nice thing that happen to me today ,I had a knock on the door today and there was a package left by UPS,this was a surprise since I did not ordered anything. After opening the package I found two great items (see photo) that had been sent as a thank you from Mr.John Wirth president of ” Woodworking supply”.
These gifts where in response to an email I had sent him thanking him for great products and super customer service over many years of purchasing a lot of their products and also sending him a link of a post here on Ljs where many of our members backed him up for IMO being unfairly attacked.
I thank the member who posted that post for Mr. Wirth’s name an contact information so I could contact him.

Most importantly I want to thank Mr.With for all of the great service and for his kind gifts.
If you need any woodworking supplies tools etc. you might check Woodworking supplies web site out

Jim, that’s the sign of a great company, they did not deserve that bad posting.

A cap and a coffee cup. What more could aging woodworkers like us ask for?

I’m not familiar with the events you related in your post, but it sounds like this is a great company. Never bought from them, but plan to check them out.

a1Jim, I think you’ve just whispered in a LOT of people’s ears.

That just proves….
What comes around, goes around!!!
You sir are a stand up guy continually doing stand up things….
& in return a stand up guy did a stand up thing!!!

Kudos to BOTH of you!!!

BTW: I occasionally do order from Woodworkers Supply. I will now have to consider them as a primary source!!!

I’ve always like Woodworker’s Supply. I’m glad they’re still thriving in the Internet age.

great place. I am lucky to live close to the Graham, NC store. The staff are very helpful, sharing knowledge.
Reasonable prices as well.

I’ve dealt with them for years, dating back to the days of paper catalogs. They’ve always done me right.
