It is great news. To me, the better news is another USA business & livelihood dedicated to producing quality work surviving to fight another day. Very cool.

EVERY time you buy a cheap imported copy or workaround, you're threatening a competing USA provider with loss of market share and closure. I understand how hard it is to afford & sometimes even find domestically produced work. A USA company that charges $100.00 for something that they produce generally doesn't make $99.00 profit compared to a similar import product that can be purchased for $1.00.

It is legitimate economic warfare, often subsidized & facilitated by foreign govts who would like nothing more than to see our resources forever lost as theirs survive. We will all win or all fail together. Rant over.

Merry Christmas, everybody.

I've got a really big shout-out to Joe and Peggy.



Building an English wheel has been on my list for awhile, but other expenses have always seemed to push it back from the top of that list. With their announcement, I did my best to push it to the top of my list but ended up coming down to the deadline waiting for some end-of-year information on finances.

Joe and Peggy worked with me at the eleventh hour and my first box arrived yesterday! I have to say, I was grinning from ear to ear!

Remember that Hoosier Profiles is a small business in this craziness that has infected the world as of late. For those of you who have contemplated building your own EW or other equipment -- it might be a good time to place an order. There is a lot of us as of late who have made great use of our Hoosier Profiles parts while enduring stay-at-home mandates. Most of my HP stuff is over ten years and although regularly used (like my EW's) -- it is still in great condition.

I emailed them some months ago and received no answer.

Perhaps I have the wrong email address. Can anyone supply it please?

Cheers Charlie
