    buying tools online

    Hi everyone.

    I have ordered from many places online for woodworking tools.

    leevalley, rockler, woodcraft. I was wondering where you shop online for power tools and accessories?

    Old Wood Working Machines dot com, Craigslist, Newspaper classifieds, IRS auctions, and some others I can't think of.

    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Several places as one vendor will have a good price on one item and another will have better pricing on something else. My trick is to use their wish-lists and compile enough items to make the shipping make sense.

    A few that have not been mentioned that I have had good luck with are: Heavydutytools, Toolking, Redmond and Sons and Toolsplus. And of course there is always Amazon, Grizzly and Wilke.

    I'll throw this out there too. I have ordered a mortiser from amazon that was cracked and a dust collector that was scratched and had some minor bent metal. Amazon was quick to make things right. I guess what I'm saying is I have found that large tools shipped through the mail seem to get damaged so make certain they are properly packed.

    Smaller stuff from many of those already listed. Bigger items I pick up either from local yard sales or go to Grizzly in Springfield, MO. One exception, my Terrco duplicator came by frieght truck. That was a hassle.
