Group purchase


New Form Information

There are now 2 different types of forms for most of the group buy events:

  • eForm - An electronic version of the form that you can fill out on your computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader. These forms will calculate discounts and totals automatically.
  • Standard - A blank version of the form if you wish to fill it out by hand. This version leaves the total blank instead of calculating $0.00 for the total.

Quarterly Group Buys

Group purchase orders for the following five companies will be taken at the monthly meetings in January, April, July and October. Order forms will be available at meetings and are also posted below. Following meetings where quarterly group buy orders are taken, additional orders will be accepted if received by the respective group buy person by the following Tuesday. If the minimum order amount is not reached, the ordering period will be extended to the following month. Ordered items are normally distributed at the next monthly meeting. Please make checks payable to the listed group buy person.

Individual Catalog Orders

Individual Catalog Orders allow members to place orders with the below vendors at a discount and have the items shipped directly to your door. You must first sign up for individual catalog discounts. It is FRW's policy that we do not provide full member rosters to vendors, so if you want to tap into these discounts, please be sure to sign up on the sheets that are passed around at each meeting.

Klingspor — Individual Catalog Orders

10% discounts on all catalog items. It is easier to order by phone, identify yourself as being a FRW member. If you order on-line, however, first send an email to sales@woodworkingshop.com with your username (format is first name + last initial - i.e., John Smith would be "johns"), billing address, phone # and preferred password, and identify yourself as a FRW member. You will receive a confirmation email within 2 business days that will enable you to order on-line. (Website)

Hartville Tool — Individual Catalog Orders

15% discount on all catalog items. Call in your order and identify yourself as being a FRW member. No tax, but catalog shipping charges apply. (Website)

Rockler

If Rockler stocks an item, please purchase that item from Rockler at their 10% club discount. We owe that to Rockler for being a wonderful host to our club.
