Geof's List

Everything on my list is subject to availability and when I re-order prices can change without notice. I also need to be reimbursed for postage so please phone first to avoid disappointment.   01279 812702.

I JUST LOST PROOPS - I HADN’T USED IT FOR TOO LONG! NO MORE DISCOUNTS WITH THEM THROUGH ME

A start-up order for CROWN tools has been placed. As the ADDIS tools below run out they cannot be re-ordered and the CROWN range will take over. I will only be stocking the HIGH SPEED STEEL range and I won’t be bothering with handles or fancy plastic wallets. I will of course always carry a stock of ferrules and studs for customers to make their own plus wood if needed.

As a full time professional woodturner selling through craft fairs, plus private and trade commission work, all running alongside private courses and Hertford Regional Educational Authority evening class contracts all my machinery, tools and materials come to me through trade suppliers at bulk rates but my overheads are of necessity low. At modest mark-ups I can thus sell all the stuff I use, well below high street retail prices or even Internet prices where you are buying just the one, plus if you call you can be sure to get exactly what you want and have no shipping/handling charges. However don’t just turn up, as a sole trader I am often out or busy with a course client. There is no shop as such, I cannot afford business rates on such a facility nor staff to occupy it so you call by arrangement as a private visitor.

Everything in the Draper catalogue is available through me at a nominal 30% discount from list, except stuff I sell a lot of, where I then get bulk dealer rate and prices can go down to 40% off list. Draper special clearance lines are often available at around half list price or better but grab these as you see them, they are usually one-off opportunities.  The deal is, you order it one week and pick it up the next (except Xmas when Draper gets swamped) I don’t hold big stocks so I can work on a very small margin. This does not affect your statutory rights, Draper are very good on warranty and where necessary (happily not often) I can get replacement parts by return.

 

JILL PIERS WOODTURNING SUPPLIES

Everything in Donald’s catalogue is available through me at Don’s prices. He discounts as  Distributor and splits his margin with me. If you’ve got the time, his workshop is well worth a visit otherwise give me a week  and I’ll get it for you.

Their top selling line is the GRIP-A-DISC and its now being widely exported. I have been deeply involved with its development since Len died and Donald and I have experimented a lot with the bonding. Now to get the glue to let go you have to abuse the abrasive so much you destroy the face of the pad first. Thanks to Len’s original breakthrough design however even when you do this the expensive Velcro hook face survives to take a fresh disc.
