I’m pleased to announce that soon, “Mechanic’s Companion” will be available through Tools for Working Wood in Brooklyn, N.Y., and its website and at Lee Valley Tools stores in Canada and the company’s online store. Both also ship international. (I shipped boxes to TFWW yesterday, and am expecting a pickup for LV today.) Plus, I’m awaiting orders from a couple of other stockists (yes, I used “stockists” to elicit an eyeroll from Christopher Schwarz): one in England and one on the Continent. I’ll post updates when I get those, and add them to the “Where to Buy” page at rudemechanicalspress.com.
What is the stand you are using to display the book? Would love to make something like that! Appreciate any info you can provide. Warmest Regards, Thomas

Recognize the stand from Chris’ article, but what is the little brass thing you have holding the book open on the upper right in the picture?
Ah – that is a commemorative caliper that John & Chris produced for Handworks to celebrate the release of “Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley” (a copy of the one in the tool cabinet). I thought that looked better than a binder clip 🙂
Still hasn’t made it onto Lee Valley’s web site ;-( Waiting, waiting……..
It will be! Hang in there!
