Hi All

I am looking to buy a Veritas low angle block and/or a low angle jack plane. Any recommendations on where to purchase these from for good price/service? I have looked at Brimarc but can't seem to find the low angle block there?

Cheers

Alan

BriMarc low angle block page. As far as I can tell prices seem to be the same everywhere, and Classic Handtools is as good a place as any. Mind you, it has the potenial to be a very dangerous site with all those desirable items on there...

Cheers, Alf

Actually-No you can't!
Brimarc will take your order and then give it to the nearest supplier to you. So you might as well order anywhere..... :lol:

Many retailers offer discounts too. That will save you even more.

PM if you need further guidance.

Martin,
Wasn't suggesting not selling direct was boring-just my ability to retain useless information! :lol:
Glad to see your Dad getting stuck into the forum, too! :wink:
Cheers
Philly :D
P.s.-any sign of the new Smoother or Scrub yet?? :?:

Martin, I've been meaning to ask; these "quality hard wood running boards for your Morris Minor"? Are they something likely to be lying around? Or you want someone to make 'em? Or are you hoping someone will creep out at dead of night and strip 'em off someone else's moggy? Or what? Inquiring minds would like to have their curiosity asuaged, please. :D

Cheers, Alf

I actually will change that sign off as I have had two offers that I have yet to take up on (apologies) however the offer is good. The Morris had a revamp and I decided some running boards would look good.

No very helpful BriMarc no quibble warranty (no matter how small that scratch is!).

I think we have a mix-up in terminolgy. Viz: the meaning of "direct". :roll:

No duty, Mike? That's rather up to the Revenoo, isn't it? :-k Speaking for myself, I'll go "local" every time, simply because I seem naturally unlucky and it's easier to return stuff closer to home.

Cheers, Alf

no duty, no Parcel Force "handling" surcharge, full range available, no hassle, excellent servise and bloody fast delivery given its trans pond shipping...

er...same here actually.

Ya know, I'm not so sure... see, irrespective of order value, anything I've ordered from Murrica tends to get whacked with duty and surcharges. Conversly, posts on the list tended towards an escape of the order came from Canuksville... Even Rob hisself's commented on it...

I'll admit to being dubious right up until I tried it...

hello I have resurrected this post as I have just experienced buying local from D&M where I ordered a Veritas #4 (slope what slope :shock: )

when it arrived direct from Brimarc I found the tote split at the base but on inspection there was no sign of damage to the outside of the box but a dent in the inside where it had obviously been dropped
this could have happened soon after it was boxed in Canada

A phone call to D&M was all it took as Brimarc contacted me to say that it would be collected the following day and a replacement would be sent
which arrived 5 days later well done Brimarc very hassle free
