Dear Customer,

You may remember us for our workshop stoves on the opposite page. If you do, you are probably one of the hundreds of customers who helped us get started and whose encouraging letters spurred us on to produce this catalogue.

Some of you will also recognize the similarity between our catalogue and Garrett Wade's in the U.S. Although we are Canadian owned and controlled, we were fortunate to establish a very close working relationship with the Garrett Wade Company which allows us volume discounts from suppliers which we could never obtain alone. Without their help and guidance, we would not have been able to bring you this superb collection of tools from different parts of the world.

While we have grown, we sincerely hope you will continue to write to us with opinions on our products as you have in the past. We may not reply in detail but we pay attention to your remarks. As one example, Michael Newman of Fruitvale, B.C. suggested that we should provide our customers with a "cool" door handle for our workshop stoves. It doesn't show in our photos, and we don't mention it in our brochures but we now include such a handle in every stove kit, thanks to Michael.

We would like your reaction to our tool line. Tell us what you like or don't like about the line and feel free to recommend additions to it. We will be issuing supplements periodically between main issue and will try to include tools that you want. In particular, if you know of any small Canadian manufacturers or craftsmen whose lines might be appropriate for us, let us know.

Finally, if you happen to be in Ottawa, drop around to 857 Boyd Avenue and browse through our showroom. We have a few tools not shown in the catalogue which may interest you.

Yours Sincerely,

Leonard G. Lee
President
