Sounded very close a couple of months ago, maybe Bill ran into a problem.
Guess this is like Christmas, it's coming.

Hi Fellow Barners: Talked to my son Bill Jr. Haag1332 over the weekend. He has sent out several completed sockets and has also e-mailed and sent a PM to some others on the top of the list. So check your e-mail or PM's . Not all 150 are finished but I think he said about 15 were ready to ship when he gets a response from those already contacted. Thanks all for your patience and when you have your socket in hand let Bill know what you think of it. Thanks, Bill Haag Sr. AKA fingers

Bill: I just had to laugh that either you or your dog don't have any THUMBS.. For those of you who do not know me I do not have any THUMBS either. That is why friends call me fingers. That is why I asked my son to make those sockets. Wow come to think of it my son don't have any thumbs either.

ok guys, guess we need a bit of clarification or added info here.

Kinda had to laugh when I read the last few posts, and Bill Sr really didn't expound on the subject matter very well, lol.

Yes a few sockets have been shipped, yes I have notified a few more people that their sockets are ready to ship and currently waiting for payment and addresses and such.

Couple minor issues with paypal stuff, but we are working that out with a few different payment options which will be explained when you get your notification that your socket/s is/are ready to ship.

I have been trying to contact through email on ford barn instead of just pm through ford barn, which has been somewhat of a laborious task, but we will work through it.

I will be sending some more notices this week yet, but am planning to wait to send anymore until the end of the month. I will be leaving in a little over a week for a trip to Greece and do not want anyone sending money while I am gone, then wondering where their socket/s are since I won't be able to ship them until the beginning of April.

Now to clarify the thumbs finger thing..............

It's true, My Father has no thumbs, nor do I. We were blessed with five fingers instead of 4 fingers and a thumb. I think everyone should request that Bill Sr. send pictures of his hands to prove this to everyone since it is a rather interesting family trait.

I know this has been a long process, and I understand the impatience at this point. I have learned more about making a top quality tool than I ever wanted to over the last year, and have spent way more money doing so than I ever would have guessed. But I assure you everyone will be more than pleased when they finally get their "hands" on their socket. And you will all own a one of a kind tool, 100% made in the USA from start to finish including the material, tooling, machinery, and everything else used in the process to manufacture it.

On a final note, just in case anyone thinks different. I have been diligently working on these sockets, and have a lot invested doing so at this point. As stated, it has been one heck of a process, and I probably should have made less to start in order to figure everything out, but so be it. Any further manufacturing will be much smoother and less time consuming no doubt.

Due to the congenital family defects which have been described, I can never be accused of standing around with my thumb up my ass while you have all been waiting for these sockets, lol.

Bill

Bill Haag, thanks for the update and information.
I never thought you had your thumb up anything but what you were working on, and now I know that would have been impossible anyway. Very interesting by the way.
I think I am among a lot of people who make the decision to buy something they need or is just "cool", then can hardly wait to get it.
As I said in an earlier post, this is like christmas... it's coming.
Have fun in Greece, I think you must deserve a break.
Jack

My son Bill Jr, Haag1332 tells me a few of you fellas have received your 13/32 socket. I have been wondering what you think about it. Like, hate or what ever your feeling has been since receiving it. Thanks, Bill Sr.
