Single-Source supplier for Wood/Metal working tools? Your recommendation?

Page 2 of 2  


Have you looked at the borgs? Their websites carry much more than they do in store, and you can get some decent tools from those places. Home Depot and Lowes are the big ones around here. (Menards doesn't do much selling from their website.)
A place like Amazon or similar would also have a large selection of tools to start building a shop from. Buy the toughest you can get, which might not be the best in each category. Fussy tools have little use in a shared shop.

I'd recommend Enco as a possibility.
Their website is http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INSRHM
and the title of the page is:
Enco - Guaranteed Lowest Prices on Machinery, Tools and Shop Supplies
They have a great catalog you can request, too.
Also, they are (now) owned by MSC Industrial, which has an absolutely HUGE catalog. Try http://www1.mscdirect.com/cgi/nnsrhm
Good luck! And have fun shopping - I always do.

Hello Terry,
Given your location you may want to look at some of the European manufactures. If you buy all from one they may give discounts.
Some of the basic wood working items I can think to get: Dust collector Planer bigger than 12" jointer bigger than 8" joiner (for biscuits) sander (the wider, larger type) belt sander palm sander table saw bigger than 10" Radial Arm Saw band saw bigger than 14" lathe longer than 30" router shaper paint booth good lighting mortiser
