“When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.” –Will Rogers
During my recent tool making class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking, I overheard an interesting conversation regarding the DSS-6 being one students favorite BCTW tool. I then was cajoled into the promise that we would make them again this year.
We are having some “behind the scenes” work done to our website and when it is completed, we will open the pre-order window for the 2012 run of this little stainless steel square. And to be exact, we will make no more than 275, which is the exact number of etched blades in our warehouse.
I also promised that we would make our honing guide again.
We likely will not make these again until 2014 but I will keep my word, both of these will be done before the holidays.
We will be filling all orders on file for the DJ-1 Drilling Jig and Universal Jaws next week. There is a wait list for the small overrun, so if this tool interests you, call and add your name to the waitlist. We won’t make this tool again for at least six months.
Lastly, Happy Father’s Day to all you Drivel Starved Dads out there. One of my favorite Dad memories is a conversation I had with my son fifteen years ago…
“Dad, you are the dumbest person I know.”
“Really? How in your eleven years did you become so much smarter than your 46 year old father?”
His reply was memorable; “Stranger things have happened.”
