Does anyone out there know where in the U.K.we can obtain a Slick and a Froe as we have noticed alot of people using them in the states and wondered if they are available here.

If you can wait till out next bulk purchase, CO&W Co could get you a 4" for about £20, (ex VAT ex Handle) or you could buy mail order from Woodcraft In the US or try myoldtool.com in Texas for old ones
Froes can be had from Bristol Design,
Magard Ventures (Canada) or Axminster Power Tools.

Topic: slicks

Just back from the TFG Conference and decided to do a bit of house keeping work on the forum.
I have moved the stuff from Sliks to slicks and froes since it is essentially the same topic.

Dear Luke,
I have two of those slicks and have never used either of them. The finishing of the backs and cutting edges is seriously flawed and of extremely poor quality.

I got mine from Woodcraft in the states and I understand that they are made here in the UK. They come with a little union jack label stuck on to the very blunt blade.

You are welcome to buy mine at a knock down price.

What constitutes a knock down price?
