I have a list of shops that have inquired - but I am trying very hard not to add any more until I can make myself a little more efficient. Since day one I have made an effort not to overextend myself because it only causes problems in the long run. If anyone ever has questions about shops I deal with - or the closest location please feel free to PM me. I don't think there is anyone currently in stock at the moment - and I don't want to take away from the spring sale at M&D's. PM me anytime.

Thanks folks! The needles will come as soon as I can do them right/efficiently. I've made them for a long time but chose not to sell them for various reasons until now. I did a batch before the Asbury show to force me to start working out the bugs with respect to production. I am a small shop so it is often a challenge to move a certain plug into production mode - but I am pretty close at this point and greatly appreciate knowing that there are people out there who have an interest in giving them a shot!

Saltydog - I'm very happy you got some of what you are looking for - and hope that all the plugs found good homes. As for the needle questions - very soon I'll post a little information about them in a separate thread. Not trying to keep any secrets or anything - but just figured that I'd wait until I have some done and ready to go out - and can take a picture and give all that stats at that point. Hope that is ok.

Unfortunately I will not be at the RI show - I really wish I could because I think that show is nothing short of fantastic. Lots of good plugs to be had though - Habs Jr, PJJ, Salty, BigFish, AH (I assume) etc. I am a pretty small shop - growing every day but still small and would not have been able to produce enough to make the RISSA show a viable option for me. Maybe next year - but until then - there will be loads of good wood available at that show - truly quality stuff and I hope you'll pay all those guys a visit - particularly those who also support this site.
