You’ll be fine. Take two minutes reviewing the Harbor Freight catalog every 4 hours until Friday. Then browse the Highlands website until the symptoms go away. Usually about 10 days to two weeks. You’ll be back to your old self in no time.

Did you keep the other catalogs?
If yes, you will be fine.

Almost cried when I decided to recycle all my of the recent wood working catalogs when I moved a few weeks ago. Been changing address on web sites, hoping I get updated versions at new place. Thanks for reminding me to change my address on Highland site!

Speaking of Grizzly Catalogs, Did anyone notice that Grizzly removed all links in online web pages that used to show the catalog page where the item was located? Strange….
The link to request a catalog has also been buried on bottom of page too. It used to be on upper menu.
Makes this conspiracy theorist think Grizzly might not issue a new catalog every year?
Might not want to toss that old Grizzly catalog till a new one arrives…. :-0)

You’re a woodworker. Of course you’re not OK, none of us are.

I gotta admit, though, throwing away a woodworking catalog without looking at it is a pretty extreme case of “not OK”. Especially this time of year, when you are supposed to “accidentally” leave it open to the page with the new toy, ahem, tool you want for Christmas prominently displayed for your family to find.

Not to worry, a Grizzly catalog will do wonders as well as Lee Valley. My wife has links to my bestest Christmas wants: a list of Lost Arts Press books, shop apron, IOU for a Crucible Tool Lump Hammer (sold out, again :( ), and so on and so on. I also need to peruse SuperTool.com and hyperkitty to see what they have. :)
I think I’ll be fine just a bit worried about the catalog toss.

My name is Earl, I have a tool porn addiction…....

I only peeked inside the Garrett Wade catalog for a few minutes before I got caught (I mean disposed of it).

Garret Wade is just down the road from me. I always thought they we up on a stream in Maine, looking out over a Mountain. The biotch of it is, they have absolutely no showroom, just ship, same as to you, and at about the same price. I scratched them off my Christmas card list, when I found that out. :-)

I like my tool porn online, well, except Garret Wade. Holding a LV, or LN catalog feels kinda dirty. Online it’s quite the opposite. Healthy, refreshing…..

Don’t worry, HF will be sending you another “Final Notice” catalog in a couple of days anyway…...

I buy stuff I need or want for the shop. I’m NOT giving up living MY life with the intention of “making it easier on my heirs”. If sorting through ALL my stuff is the price they have to pay in order to get their greedy mitts on stuff they want, so be it. We’ve all done it. Why should generation LAY-ZEE sit on their butts doing nothing waiting for a check from the estate? If that’s all they care about, the HELL with ‘em……
