Setting up a workshop
Buying tools and equipment
Recently came across this US tool supplier "The Yard Store" They stock a wide range of tools including some things that are hard to find and/or very expensive – things like right angle collet drills, and their prices seem reasonable and I have been told that their service is good. As an example I found an Irwin Unibit that I paid A$48 for in their catalogue for US$19. Depends on exchange rates and shipping costs of course but might be worth a look.
