Thumbs Up Lee Valley
Last week I pulled out my Lee Valley carcass saw, and for whatever reason happened to look at the bottom of the handle where the brass nut belongs. It wasn't there. I assume it rattled loose due to the vibrations the travel through the saw during use. Baffled, I looked around the floor and in the box that it had been residing. I couldn't find it anywhere, and in all likelihood it ended up in my friend's fire the other night with the contents of my shavings bucket, or maybe it's cavorting in some dark hidden place with all of my missing socks. The handle was very firm still, so I went ahead and used the saw (though a bit gingerly) and when I was done I sent an email to Lee Valley customer service. That was Wednesday night, and I received the new saw nut Monday when the UPS guy drove by. I was very pleased with the quick and friendly service. If there was any doubt in my mind that Lee Valley would be getting more of my money in the future (there wasn't), it is gone now. Now I have my eye on their plow plane.
