their phone number doesn't work and I haven't gotten an answer to my email I sent yesterday. They used to be so prompt.

I hope they all are ok. Didn't they have a major house fire sometime ago?

That's the last I ever heard about them. Did they ever reopen?

Tobins Lab is ready to PASS THE BATON to a great family!!

After 16 years of service to WONDERFUL people,
it is time to close up shop and say good-bye.
If you are interested in learning more about perhaps taking over
a family business within the homeschool marketplace,
please call Mike at (phone number)
or email him at (email)

We are committed to continuing to provide excellent service through this time.

I contacted them a few months ago and he said they were going out of business. They were always one of my favorite booths at the homeschool convention.

I thought that was Timberdoodle.

Perhaps those Jonesing for TL could try Home Science Tools.

FWIW, we got our dissection supplies from Carolina Biological. They have a variety for most items, from starter through professional tools. We ordered specimens as well as dissection trays and equipment.
