7. Can you ship to multiple addresses?

Unfortunately, due to shipping costs, we cannot ship to multiple addresses on one order.  In order to ship to multiple addresses, you would have to set up more than one order.

8. Can you ship out of the continental United States?

We mostly can ship out of the continental United States; We will ship almost everywhere but there are a few exclusions. Due to high international shipping costs, we prefer to ship international orders via USPS whenever possible. We also only ship items that will fit in the largest flat rate box from USPS; therefore, most of our larger product lines (Woodpeckers and Incra) are not able to ship internationally (with the exception of Woodpeckers products going to Canada). 

We have also seen issues with international credit cards not processing due to an address mismatch. We require all credit cards to go through an address verification system, which most international banks do not offer. Therefore, PayPal is the best option for international customers and orders. 

9. How do I choose the right tool?

Choosing the right tool is often hard, especially when we have such a large selection.  Our website does feature lots of resources to assist you should you need them. For saw blades, start here. Woodworking, start here. Router bits, here.

And if you still cannot choose the right tool, give us a call and we will more than happy to assist you in the selection of the perfect tool for you.

10. What methods of payment do you accept?

We accept everything (Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover) as well as PayPal. 

11. How will I know my order has shipped?

Once an orders status has been changed to shipped, an automatically generated email will be sent to notifying you that your has indeed shipped. This email will include a tracking number.

12. Does your online store charge sales tax?

Currently, our store only charges sales tax for customers with shipping addresses in Washington State.  The sales tax varies per area in WA and our store tax settings are set up by different Washington zip codes so the appropriate tax rate will apply.
