  • Bob Duncan as Grobet USA's National Sales Manager

    Good Morning Gang,
    The folks at WcI have asked me to formally introduce myself in my new role. Kaylee felt that since I have such a long relationship with the forum (and the readers) I should introduce myself in my new role and reassure everyone that I'm still around.

    You'll still see my name in the magazine. I'm working freelance for the magazines, sharing my wealth of woodworking knowledge as a consultant on articles, writing product reviews (for products that Grobet/Pegas do not have competing products for), and writing general tool and shop articles. I'll still be checking out the forums as well, so if there are products you'd like to see reviews for (or if you have any questions about Grobet products), feel free to mention it here.

    Most of my time up to this point was spent combing through Grobets 600-page catalog of products for the Jewelry, Dental, Optical, and Industrial markets to find what items are also useful for woodcarvers, scroll sawyers, and woodworkers in general, to create a woodworking catalog. Now, I'm spending my time reaching out to my contacts in the woodworking world and showing them what we have available. I'll also be doing some traveling, showing off our tools.

    To wrap this up, yes, I left Fox Chapel, but yes, I'm still around. And there's no way I'd abandon the friends I've made here over the past 15 years.

    Best Regards,
    Bob Duncan
    National Sales Manager for Woodworking, Grobet USA

      Congrats Bob, it is nice to have some new challenges. It is also good to know that you will still be around.
      Good luck, Tom

      I think Grobet makes the Crocker Graver that is a good tool to assist in sharpening V-tools.

      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

              That is the one Bob, Helps to get a factory looking grind instead of free-handing.

                      Bob, I am glad to hear that you will still be contributing to WCI and this forum. Best Wishes as National Sales Manager for Woodworking, Grobet USA! Looking forward to receiving your woodworking catalog.

                        If anyone is interested in the catalog, please feel free to PM me your e-mail address so I can e-mail it to you. Unfortunately, at this time, though, we don't sell direct. But I'm building up list of people who sell our products, so I'll be able to steer you towards someone who you can order from.

                        (or you can go search for Grobet USA and find the website, but I find the website a bit overwhelming).
