You sure man?...I dont mind you borrowing them for a bit.
I just changed the blades so they're in tip top shape. I really don't mind.

Thanks. I mean, he's not too far away from me...about 8.5hrs I guess.
I really wouldn't mind bro. You seem like a solid dude. As long as I get them back.

Re: Columbia boxes


Its really a nice gesture but the main reason for an other set is for the newbie . I would never let him use my columbia tools . So there is no way to let him use yours . If it was for me , i would take yours cuz i know how to use it well .

Re: Columbia boxes


I am a distance from Montreal, but I saw some Columbia boxes in a local pawn shop recently that looked to be in good shape and I think they were asking $125 each. Just a thought!

I think just letting a newb trying to run boxes might be tricky as well.
Not so much because he might damage them but mostly because of what kind of job he'd do with little or no experience Make sure to keep a close eye on him Frenchie

But I find boxes are pretty friggen durable and hard to break. I've dropped mine a few times and they're fine. But i'll keep an eye for a used set for you man.
