I saw that as well. Added an oddity to their Newsletter. The piece on repairing/replacing cast iron was a bit more informative.

Happy turkey day guys.

How deep is the snow Stick?

That was funny. Especially his description of himself at the end.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm with Stick on this. Something smells really fishy.

Reading the ad, it looks like it was a waist tape measure for dieters..... which makes the 50 inch length make sense.


What doesn't make sense is how rigid the tape looks, not like a seamstress tape at all.
