The good?

The bad?

The ugly?

I’ve only ever shopped on one or two sites other than amazon online, always unsure if can trust a site or not.

What is it you need/want to purchase? Just asking because Amazon pretty much sux, and getting worse every day. There are some other outlets routinely kicking them to the curb. On name brand tools, both Rockler, and WoodCraft are frequently beating their prices, and yes, free S&H. If you have a local, it’s my idea of American greatness to support them, or one day all you will have as a choice is a much suckier Amazoo.

I have ordered from them a couple times. Been a few years ago now. But I had no issues.

I agree with Steve. I am starting to have real issues with amazon. And when prime is up for renewal. I am going to let them go.

I’m looking at stones. For now the Norton, probably the 8×3 Crystolon fine.

Later on a diamond stone, though I may save up and get the two sided Trend that StumpyNubs has.

All good

Zero bad

Nothing ugly.

I only placed two orders with them one recently and another in 2015. All is well.

I’m in agreement with Steve and John, Amazon is pretty crappy . I see it as a last resort and rarely use it.

Three weeks ago I placed an order with them. They told me up front the item was out of stock and it would be in stock a week “or two”. In a week got the notification it was shipped. Arrived with no problems.

I will order from them again.

Not sure if price is more or less than amazon, but the person I ordered from was more knowledgeable than me. That is worth something.

I’ve purchased several items from them over the years and never had a problem.

I bought a couple of Arkansas stones from them last year. No problems at all.

Yes, many times. Love them. Good product lines, good prices, quick shipping and good customer care. For the beginning hand tool sharpener, their line of Norton two sided water stones are an inexpensive way to improve your game. For the more discerning the Shapton Kuromaku professional stones are fantastic performers. Abrasives selection is pretty good, however Klingspor in North Carolina has a enormous line at competitive prices. Check out the “end cuts” bulk boxes for great value.
