    We got a bunch of our stuff at
    Smith Industrial Supplies
    in Port Colborne. The McLeods were special order but if you ask Wade pretty-please he might be able to help you out.

    If you are looking for a Pulaski Lee Valley Tools has them in stock normally - Lee Valley Tools . You would have to drive into Burlington though. I think Wade at Smith Industrial bould probably get you both a Mcleod and a Pulaski though but they will be a special order.

    Also check out Rouge Hoes. Some of the Hamiltion Cycling Guys want them so we were going to try and do a group buy at somepoint. The 70H is a great tool.

    It is true I can order some tools.

    +1 for the rouge hoes I have the FB70H this is a great tool for digging. Well made, a nice weight for ground engagement and the quality of the steel is great. It holds a keen edge and stands up well to rocks hidden in the dirt.

    SMITH INDUSTRIAL is where the SHCC purchased their McLeods from as well.

    I just picked up a Rogue 80R (Rhino), its a beast.
    With the size of the head it makes for a good tamper as well.

    Ya, I guess all the people throughout the world that have been using a billhook to clear brush since the Bronze Age have it all wrong... What were they thinking!

    I wouldn't expect anything less from a vehement single speeder than to use tools from the bronze age.
