I’ve been spending again!
I really like my long guide clamp, having reasoned that it would cope with anything I needed, but in a small workshop it’s sometimes a bit unweildy, so I got a 24″ guide clamp to go with it.
I got some rare earth magnets to stick the spanner and allen key used to adjust my bandsaw to the side of the machine.
I also got some more rust remover, as with car boot season upon us I’ll hopefully be bringing home some more rusty gold :).
I’ve wanted some clamp-it squares for a while, so I got 4 of them.
I also ordered the Veritas marking gauge, but this is not currently in stock so they’ve split the order and shipped the pieces they had, which is nice.
I know a lot of people seem to have problems with Rutlands, but I’ve always found that they respond quickly to enquiries about out of stock items and I’ve never encountered something that was claimed as in stock and then unavailable once I ordered it, so it’s not like I don’t know what I’m getting into!
One of the customer service people I spoke to said they would be getting a new website and ordering system soon, so perhaps they’ll take on board my suggestions of more proactive stock notifications and split shipping …
