I received my blanks today. These look beautiful. Quality product, excellent customer service, on-time delivery, and exceptional packaging… unheard of these days!! I’m anxious to start using them. Thank you for all your help on this. I’ll definitely order again.

Just want to say thanks. I recently ran a job with some blanks ordered from TCI. The blanks saved me two setups and more importantly put extra profit into my pocket. I don’t usually have the luxury of waiting to get material for a job but this time everything worked out fine. You guys rock!
