There's a C.R. Laurence warehouse only a few miles from us but they're a wholesale distributor only--I suspect it's the same in the States. If you had an account and logged in the price would probably show up..

I imagine that the Russell product is made in the U.S. and it will be better in every way--material, heat treat and finish. On the other hand the "cheap" 3 dollar one...God knows where it would come from. You guys are always complaining about "cheap" import products and how you should be supporting American companies--well, here's your chance...

A right angle die grinder with a 2" scotchbrite pad pretty much ended gasket scraping for me Pull them backwards instead of pushing them on aluminum so they don't dig in and wail away.

I was wondering about the purpose in the bend I don't do allot of that sort of work so a straight one is usually what gets used around here
but it makes since it would be used to glazing putty on windows

first thought was make a small skinning knife but
not quite sure what ill do with it as its more of something to hang around the shop an I think it is kind of neat looking.
