We woke up to big news today in the scroll saw industry, Mike Moorlach, owner of mikesworkshop.com and supplier of Flying Dutchman scroll saw blades announced Sunday that he has sold his business, as of March 8, 2015, to The Wooden Teddy Bear, a scroll saw pattern and supplies retailer. I confirmed this news with a phone call to The Wooden Teddy Bear this morning.
For many years Mike has been the go to guy for Flying Dutchman Scroll Saw Blades, one of the most popular brands of scroll saw blades available to today's scroll saw enthusiast.
Mike has developed a reputation for providing a good product combined with superior service and superior knowledge. By doing so he single handedly developed the Flying Dutchman brand into the popular brand it is today. Mike is well known throughout the scroll saw community and will surely be missed by his large following of loyal customers.
Congratulations to The management at The Wooden Teddy Bear for a purchase that should "bear" them great results in the future. However, they do have a tough act to follow, after all Mike's customer service, as well as his shipping policies and pricing, were always excellent. These are probably the main reason that people bought the Flying Dutchman blades from Mike.
