Carroll's Chronicle March 2018

It is with great sadness that we let everyone know about a great tragedy  here in Australia.

We  have lost Holden, Ford and now P&N Woodturning tools. Yes it is true one of our local icons has called it a day due to the ever diminishing market they represented.

P&N were some of the best tools available here in Australia and also around the world. But with the ever increasing influx of asian tools at cheap prices and quality their market strangle hold has been loosened to the point where they have decided to shut down that part of their operation.

So what are we left with but a range of English tools which are not bad but not in the same league as our P&N tools and some american tools and the asian imports.

We have seen the list of tools still available but it is the more uncommon sizes that are still available till they run out, We have limited stock left and running out quickly since the panic set in.

Ok that is the sad news now the good news , we had a great weekend at the Bowna Turnaround last weekend and looking forward to the Goulburn Valley Woodworkers show this coming long weekend in Shepparton.

Dont forget the shop will be closed from Friday the 9th of March and reopen Wednesday the 14th of March.

Dont forget the phone number is 03 5243 0522
