    What is stabilized wood, a practical guide

    I would leave out the word "Honestly" We assume everything you say is credible, why single out just that sentance ? It's used car salesman-ish.

    Are there any good files left?

    It's a way to roll out distribution to a wide audience and still keep profits in house. Buying shelf space at hardware stores will just put them beside the Irwin china made and folks there will buy on price.
