After 6 weeks of waiting my Bahco files finally arrived. The customer care element of the online seller was not that good, I had to do all the chasing to find out the status of my order. Apparently there were some manufacturing problems at the US factory. Strange that as I thought they were made in Europe. My annoyance with the long wait was made worse yesterday. I went to a long established ironmongers, now more a home hardware shop, pots pans, garden equipment, etc. than tools, nails, hinges etc. you know where this is going don’t you. Yes, there before my eyes was a selection of Bahco files, including 4″ and 5″ slim taper saw files. I’ll be buying there in the future. They may be about £1.50p/£2.00p per file more expensive than the online price, but I’ll save on postage and I’ll be supporting a local business.
