One time tool late again wood peckers
« on: November 03, 2017, 11:22 AM »
I should have expected this again. This will be the last one I ever buy. The marking gauge was Supposed to ship around the first. Now not till the end of the month. What a joke with these people. I can’t see how they stay in business this way. I’m done with them as I know many as you are also. Had to vent some.

While I only have a handful, I've been quite pleased with all my woodpecker tools and will continue to buy them as needed. As for OTTs, I don't bother with expected ship dates, they ship when they ship, and it has always been a treat when they show up at my doorstep. YMMV

If you really need them, there aren't any better tools on the market. If other tools will suffice, then, of course, they are an extravagance and a pain, given the cost and the wait time.

If Woodpecker misses a deliver date by only 30 days that is VERY Good!! I have a bunch of Woodpecker tools and will continue to buy one time tools that fill a need of me.

I just don’t understand all of the angst involved with a OTT shipping late. I do understand that a Christmas 🎄 present delivered in January is a disappointment, but that doesn’t mean I no longer celebrate Christmas.

I’d certainly hope no one is bidding a job based on the anticipated delivery date of a OTT. I look at them as a way to make my life easier, nothing more, nothing less. In reality, you need nothing more than a sharp piece of flint and a flat rock to complete most any woodworking project.  [tongue]

That’s the beauty of working with wood...not so much with the fabrication of steel or iron.  [eek]

Comical.

OTT is a collector's business model. If you see it differently you need to take a dose of "WAKE UP".

I just place my order and forget about it. When the toy arrives, it is a much enjoyed surprise.

I like others here just order them, and treat it like a pleasant surprise when they show up. That said, it has become an irritating regularity for them to ship 4-6 weeks late every time.

And I too have slowed my interest in them - but more because many of them are barely more functional than much cheaper counterparts than because they are late. Many are truly "collector bait", kind of like the Kincaide Christmas figurines for sale in the Sunday paper......
