Anybody know if Thompson is still in business? I ordered a gouge about two weeks ago but have heard nothing. No response from two emails and no response from a telephone message. Since I paid via PayPal I can probably get my money back but I’d really like the gouge.

As far as I know, yes. He is scheduled for the AAW. He seems to prefer telephone over email. I would keep trying.

I ordered a couple of gouges two weeks ago … received them in about a week. He was at the Woodworking Show in Atlanta, so he may be working through a back-log of orders.

I would give him a call … Doug is a stand-up guy.

Saw him at the Totally Turning show in Saratoga Springs a couple weeks ago.

Hurricane Tools has the same problem, can never get a call back.

Sounds like he has been traveling a lot. I agree give him a call. I’m sure he is playing catch up on orders.

It finally came yesterday. It had an incorrect zip code and must haven been delayed while the PO sorted that out.
