I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons – the equinox was yesterday so it is officially Fall. Though here on the edge of the continent, we’re finally getting some beautiful, warm, summery weather. 

Hock Tools continues to be busy. A few of our items are out of stock but we expect a shipment next week that should help, for a while, anyway. Yes, the supply chain is fragile, backorders are more frequent than I like, but you have all have been of exceptionally good cheer throughout. This makes it easier to also be of good cheer. All in all, I know I am a fortunate toolmaker. 

Speaking of being a fortunate toolmaker, I hope you read below about David Heim’s new book, Saws, Planes, and Scorps: Exceptional Woodworking Tools and their Makers published by Princeton’s Architectural Press. You will find many toolmaking friends in this book, which explains why you want all the tools they make on your shelves and your bench.

Of course, if there is anything you need from Hock Tools, please let me know.
