Your catalog and others are a constant source of info for me. They
sit on my bench in my workshop, follow me around to lunch, and I
read them when I am trying to solve a problem. I can flip back and

circle and item, make notes. Sometimes when looking for one product I
see another that I find I REALLY need. None of this is possible with
Now having said that, I also understand the costs of printing,
mailing, storing all the paper catalogs. The idea of having a cd
with even MORE info on it is very intriguing. Given a choice, I'd

fact that paper is a physical entity that can be interacted with in
a myriad of ways a computer screen can't. I wouldn't stop printing
your catalogs yet, please.
