Crucible Scrapers (Sold Out)

crucible_scrapers_packaging_2-IMG_1636

I just packaged up a batch of Crucible Card Scrapers and they are en route to our warehouse tonight. We have sold out as of 8:15 this morning….

As I mentioned last week, we are consolidating the Lost Art Press and Crucible websites to make our lives (and yours) a bit simpler. We have set up a bunch of redirects to help direct the traffic to the right place, but we are sure there will be 404s and LOLs. Apologies for sending you literature on sausage making at home. It was not our intent.

Back to scrapers. This isn’t the biggest batch we’ve made, but we hope this helps satisfy the demand. Note that we have not raised the price (we resist Adam Smith’s invisible backhand).

    Why do I feel that if I was enterprising and unethical I should buy up all of these I can and resell them on eBay?

    Hi. The link indicates you are out of stock on this item.

    This suggests two things: 1. You are in fact already out of stock. Congratulations on the fast turnaround time for selling out your product. You are truly the boy band (tall, gangly, popular) of the woodworking world. 2. Your e-commerce store didn’t update to accommodate your new stock.

    I’m hoping it’s number one above. Number two, especially when poorly timed, can be particularly inconvenient.

    Keep on keeping on.

    Loyally yours,

    C

        Time on the shelf is getting longer. The next batch might make it past a calendar day!

        I sense you get a little frustrated, anxious, and irritated with selling out — particularly with some people’s reaction. But the vast majority think this is a good thing. Your stuff is popular. Everything else will fall in line. It’s just taking a little longer than you figured.

        • Thanks John. I do not like to be out of stock. It’s one of the core principles of our company – to not make our stuff precious and dear on the secondary market. I have another 880 scraper on the way from the waterjet company today. So I hope that will do the trick.

            Maybe the best way to break the in-stock/out-of-stock cycle would be to build up inventory prior opening them up for sale again. I know 880 sounds like a lot, but so did the numbers in the other batches. I don’t think your customers will mind waiting for you too build up stock and it would relieve frustrations on both sides of the sale. Just a thought. ( As a side note, just make sure you have a boat load for the holiday 2019 shopping season. I have a feeling those will be more popular than they are now.)

            If you want to maintain stock, you’ll need crappier products. Perhaps now is the time for LAP tube top cell phone holders. I promise you’ll sell at least one.
