Tom,

When I watched the video I wondered the same thing.

To be honest...and this was probably 20 years ago, mind...I did get one baggie of quad beveled pegs as a sample from them but it wasn't a size I wanted or needed.

I sincerely hope I am not doing the company or the new owner a disservice...and Lisa I'm sure will be able to put paid to it...but my overall impression of what I got was way too many cripples and the wood was a little too soft.

Times change new owners come in and your mileage may vary...

Does anyone know of a source of pegs in Europe?
It seems silly for me (in Spain) to order German made Blau Ring pegs from the US. Either they no longer exist, or they don't sell directly.

Thanks,

Ana Kim

Goetz in Goppingen was where most of the American wholesalers were getting them, AFAIK.

Without "good" there is no "better," without "better," no "best."
And without the recognition that there is a hierarchy of excellence in all things, nothing rises above the level of mundane.
