Leigh Tools Status
« on: February 02, 2021, 10:34 AM »
What's up with Leigh Tools?

Every item on their website is noted "Out of Stock". Both Lee Valley and Amazon are reporting item unavailable. I was able to order the part I needed from Rockler but I have not received a shipping date. However, the item I ordered was noted as in stock.

This is worrisome as Leigh outlasted Akeda and Festool NA left the field.  Leigh has forged ahead with some remarkable innovations. Leigh, no doubt has a huge in-place inventory and you would expect lasting power.  I hope this  is only a sign of a temporary Covid response and not some sign they will fade and join Akeda.

I did call customer support but they are on Pacific time and no answer.

Many places are still having supply-related issues because of COVID.  Not sure what items you’re looking to buy.  I’ve had decent experiences buying Leigh inserts from Highland Woodworking.

@clark_fork Rockler, both on their site and Amazon, seems to have inventory on most stuff except the D4R Pro jig.

Highland seems to be the same way. So if you are wanting a D4R pro jig you'll have to wait.
