    Have resisted for a second year in a row. Which largely reflects the scope of my past purchases there....

    Good luck all-still some great stuff available

    Not as many items as previous years, but still quality stuff. It's kind of scary that I can look at everything and can say to myself that I already have this, this, this and that... and therefore don't have anything to buy hahaha.
    Well except for the flushing chisels set which is tempting, but the website says they can't deliver to my address (?!?) sooo.... might be a sign that I should put the wallet away.

    I'm glad that they're doing this at 12pm instead of 12am Cyber Monday, though!

    Been on for solid 30 minutes
    get my planes in cart, then the system blows up
    exact same problem last year
    all kinds of weird message errors, cant ship to that address, etc
    been at same address for 15 years
    Nice that Rob does this, but the wasted time on customers end not worth the savings...
    last year, wasted a solid hour trying to check out...
    BTW, tried 3 different browsers, same problem...
    LV systems overwhelmed again...

    anyone get this message over and over?

    The following item(s) are not available for shipment to the location on the order.

    • CM277P, Bevel-Up Jack Rabbet Plane, PM-V11 – Manufacturing Second

    To proceed to checkout, choose one of the following options:
    1) Move the item to your Purchase Later List
    2) Change your preferred shipping method

    I got in very early - right after it opened - added a right-hand shooting plane to the cart, added my CC info, and then ... nothing. Useless javascript errors reported back (including bullets that state "Message"). I give up.

    Will,
    I am getting that exact error now. And when I try to change anything, the cart gets emptied.

    I tried everything, empty cart, re add,
    it gets hung up on shipping, then the message above...even within a minute of the sale opening, so I doubt they were all gone, I still see this plane on the list of available...
    maybe next year, they do one day for hardware, one day for planes, etc, so LV systems are not overwhelmed...
    oh well....

    Rob used jumped on here last year, maybe he will give us some insights before I surrender again...

    Me too. So at least one sale gone (was going to add other things too until it was just so flaky it wasn't worth it).

    I'm a developer for a living, so not trying to be a whiney customer... if you don't know your stuff is broken, you can't fix it.

    Definitely a sign of how much of Veritas' catalogue I already own that I was able to not purchase anything this year during the seconds event...and I believe last year as well. Was very tempted by the flushing chisels though...

    On a somewhat related note...For anyone on the fence regarding the DX11 block plane - go for it. It's just an amazing tool.

    I managed to get one order through right away, but ever since then I've received errors including the same "cannot be shipped to the address on the order" message and simply "Sorry, we are currently experiencing issues with our website."

    As a last resort, I tried calling LV 800 number a few times, as expected, busy...

    Yes, identical error and it happened right at 12pm. I feel that these errors were addressed in previous errors and seem like itís back to square one - what a frustrating experience. Oh well.

    Yup, same thing happening here. I had wanted to purchase a PM-V11 chisel to see how it compares to my Blue Spruce and Ashley Iles. Oh well, maybe next year.
