Last week, Rob Lee said on another forum that they would be ready in a couple of weeks.

Yours is in the mail now....

Canadian version is another week! (USPS is slower, which is why they go first!)

Cheers -

Rob

Sorry,
I can't help you but I'm looking forward to page 25.
Why page 25?

When I was a child I eagerly anticipated the Simpson's Sears Christmas Catalogue which came out around this time of year. Now that I am all grown up sort of, I look forward to the Lee Valley Catalogue, with perhaps even greater anticipation.

I wonder if the router plane will debut in this issue. I should add though if you think the catalogue is nice you should see the stores, I live less than thirty minutes away from the London store.

That wasn't a gloat was it?

Hi Middlefehldt,
I thought no one would ask! I had a wonderful link to p.25 but the forum that Rob put it on just lost all messages posted since last month...from what I saw that's the page that will have the 3 "bevel-up" planes, including the new jointer.

I think that we in the States are getting the shaft. I don't know of any Lee Valley stores in the states and there are no tradeshows anywhere near Washington D.C. The closest one is in Philadelphia -- and that one's a flower show. I know, I know, contain your enthusiasm Philly residents. :roll:

The only store in my area that carries Veritas stuff is Woodcraft and they don't even carry their planes.

(snip)..

I'm not sure if the prices on the rest of the planes are going up, but the bevel-up smoother's new price is $185 -- so save 10 bucks for the next few days!

Ahhh... depends on the country...prices went down overall in Canada, while US prices went up a tad....

Price decreases went into effect weeks ago...any increases go into effect the 2nd....

That's it. I've had it. I'm moving north. :x

Almost every week i talk to someone that's just had a great vacation in Canada. They come back talking about the relaxing experience, the laid-back people, better work environment, the health-care, etc.

And now, lower tool prices?! Time to check out their education system. :roll: :wink:

Oh good grief. I suppose he'll start gloating about that too... Oh wait, different Philly perhaps... :-k

Anyway, page 25 was drooled over in depth here.

Cheers, Alf

Hi -

Unfortunately, international mailing costs make it prohibitive for us to automatically mail catalogues overseas. We do add them to orders though upon request... the catalogues weigh 497g, it's $11.60 per piece to send just the woodworking main by itself!

I can certainly put PDF's up on the web if that helps - a total of 26 files, totalling 24.4MB (the majority under 1MB, with only 8 over... and the router bits section at 4.1MB).

New product will start appearing on the "What's new" area of our website starting today (after 2:00PM EST) too..

As I'll be hopping the pond for the APTC show - I'd be glad to carry some across for people on the board as well - though I do have to leave some room for clothes.... :shock:

Cheers -

Rob

The more room you make for the catalogs, the more room you'll have to bring back some beer from the various British Isles.
