Whats going on in the Timbermate house
Who is Earl and whats with the crown?
My latest purchase surprised me with a complete make over on labeling.

I need the goss!

I'd be more concerned about buying pine to replace the maple!

Knew that crown looked familiar,


and Harry's defection had nothing to do with it.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Yep correct they are connected somehow !

I actually saw the youtube video on the hardener but cannot find anything else about a Australian family product falling to the mega giants yet.
There is definitely a connection though, lets see if Timbermates CEO fesses up about the sneaky change, mind you its still a great product.

Earl's seem to be under the umbrella of Timbermate Group.... who bought who?

You didn't answer my poser... did you water the pine down to make it look like maple?

BIt of useless information... my laser has "pre-configured" concrete material setting, which hardly makes an impression on the Timbermate filler... I might line my entire shop floor with Timbermate as the 'crete is cracking.

OK inspector gadget has been busy


it appears Timbermate the family business has been sepoised by the Giant USA and now become Timbermate Group and its head office in the USA

Timbermate is an interior product where as Earls is a exterior product.
so if you thinking of using it on the floor of concrete its the Earls choice of products for that application.

Not sure why you would would spend $ repairing wood with harder when it could be simply replaced wooden fence palings being a case in question.

What do you use yours for? Noting that accidentally spilling some down the front of your smock could be embarrassing!
Dave P is a wood hardener guru I think may be he might PU on the blog and add expert knowledge.

I am still digging up the goss so standby
Yeeks ...Bloody hell I see Australia Day is under threat now! when is all this BS going to end?  The Easter bunny and Santa Clause will be next... not forgetting the tooth fairy too!

I know who Earl is but he swapped the flower for a crown.
looks like you boys will be paying a lot more for your wood filler huh ? but cheaper for us yanks maybe ?

Well I hope they don’t change the product. Last thing I need is chinsey Timbermate.

Hi Rob, 
 
 Thank you for your email.
 
 Unfortunately, there is no scandalous story to tell you. 
 
 We produce quite a few different putties and powders; some had Earl's on the label and some did not.   To unify all our products we updated our labels to all have Earl's listed on all of them. 
 
 The products are all exactly the same they just got updated labels. 
 
 Have a wonderful day,
 
 Lauren Campbell

Regards Rob

Ohthankgod…I was concerned they were changing my TimeberMate. Well researched Rob!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

But how much do you trust a Campbell... especially a Lauren?  Was that email sent on scented paper?
