Jump Rings & FB-series Buckle Keeper Changes
In the interest of a little more efficiency on our part here in the shop, we've made a few changes to these items. The 100-packs of Jump Rings and 30-packs of Buckle Keepers (FB21, FB23, FB25) have been "discontinued". However, we have changed the quantity discounts, so that when you order 5 of an item, it's the same price as the former 100-packs (jump rings) or 30-packs (keepers). So if you need to order just 6 or 7 packs (and not necessarily the equivalent of 2 100-packs) the quantity price will apply there as well.

In addition, on Jump Rings, if you mix and match sizes/colors to get 15 or more packs on your order, that will also qualify for the discount on each pack ordered.

The pricing hasn't changed for the quantity of items you may order, it's just dealt with a little differently. (And if you do order 1 JR600s, you'll get 5 packs of JR6s for the same price.)

Whatever happened to the Tooling & Carving Book?

Due to a lot of things that need to be done here, and not enough time and energy to get to them all, this book has been put on the back burner. It is however, getting higher up on the list of things to be tackled...

Till it is done and we have further information, there simply isn't much else to say! We'll get to it just as soon as we can... and yes, we are catching up on a number of things...

Thanks for your patience!
