Best source for metal working equipment?

Posted by chadtoolio (My Page) on

I am looking for various tools. Vise grips, dollies, mallets, shot bag, etc... Could probably order from snap-on(who I have an account with), but they would probably be at 3 times the cost. I don't know everything I need and figure that I will find out as I go.

It sounds like you're looking for body tools. Check out Eastwood. They have all the stuff you might want.

Look in you local phone book for distributors of welding supplies and welding gasses.

In addition to stocking the comprssed gasses, oxygen, acetelene, nitrogen and such, they also carry a full line of welding equipment and accessories.

Thanks for the replies... I gues I am glad that there are no local places that sell this stuff..I'd probably get in trouble. I did get a pair of #5 flip down shades the other day for using with the plasma cutter. I think a O/A torch is the next priority in this hobbie.
