Whilst trauling the web for some tooling, I can across the above company. I'd heard of them previously from the Atlas Lathe Yahoo Group so decided to have a look around

Even tho the $/ is dire at present, it soon became apparent that if I ordered from these folk, I could still save a fortune for the items I was after (even taking shipping, VAT and customs charges into account) cool unibrow

One snag...the web site doesn't currently cater for international orders so you have to contact them. After mnay emails and postage quotes (stuff I wanted not in stock and me changing plans)...I ordered one night last week (7 hours behind UK) by phoning my card details to the US and following up the order via email confirmation.

Three days later, I'd got the stuff in my hand...great result and an overall saving of 68

Can't fault 'em thumbsup

I've bought from them in the past, but of course I am in the states so it makes it much easier. Just need to be careful with what you buy as some of the tools are not exactly of the highest quality.

The stuff I was looking at and bought was CP air tooling...its branded stuff and looks to be good quality

ah...this was a while back when I first got my lathe. I was after info and a few parts to restore it back to working standard. It was an incomplete non runner when I got it nod ...plus as its American, and not seen one before, I wasn't sure what model it was. I ended up joining the group coz they proved to be invaluable
