Topic tags/keywords: catalogs

I have quite a few that I like and get. I thought I would share a few and see what other catalogs people recommend.

Lee Valley Hardware and Woodworking Catalogs – All kinds of neat and useful stuff

CraftSupplies USA – Wonderful woodturning catalog. Great selection of quality pen kits and pen blanks.

Grizzly Tools – Lots and lots of nice large woodworking machines.

The Japan Woodworker – Lots of wonderful hand tools.

A couple of obvious ones to add are http://www.woodcraft.com and http://www.rockler.com

Also Penn State Industries for Pen Making Stuff, Dust Collection and Router Bits (MLCS)

Lie-Nielson Toolworks for eye candy and general appeal.

Bob,

My wife kindly let’s me have a magazine rack in the upstairs john. Room for one or two Fine Woodworkings, Veritas woodworking and three or four others. I can multi-task, while memorizing ad copy, and FWW articles. Can’t afford to order, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for (somewhere Robert Browning is augering in another 6 feet).

I have to add another vote for McMaster-Carr. They have everything (except wood). Just got some rare earth magnets, plastic for my TS sled runners and aluminum tubing.
