Where is the place to buy tools?

a good question.......

your local big shed?
your local independant?
or the internet?

well for prices and range the internet is the one, And froogle http://www.froogle.co.uk seems a good place to start. Froogle, as they say, is 'googles answer to internet shopping'

whack in the model number or tool type your after and hit enter. You can rank the list by low to high price or enter your own price range.

Ideal.........where do you buy your tools?

hi chopper
i can only speak for myself, but the cheapest prices i can find are on the net,my local dealers just cant compete i tend to stick with d & m tools they work on a points system ,so more often than not u get the carriage free and they are generally cheaper than others http://www.dm-tools.co.uk/store/main.php3
at the time of buying my t9 router , i found this link to be the cheapest
http://www.toolsnextday.ltd.uk/main_index.htm
that might not be the case now.

personally I try to buy at any place where I can see and touch the kit first - especially machines - in most machinery cases I put this before brand or what ever

When I cannot do this it is generally Rutlands or Axminster and recently Brimarc

For top brand hand tools I buy direct from manufacturer in most cases LN, Lee Valley etc.

I also use Axminster and Rutlands as the first point of Price reference,

and then start shopping around to get below these prices, But that only for machinery, Small items like glue, etc i straight buy from axminster as they don't charge for shipping, or have a minimum order size

Mcluma,

Axminster don't have a minimum order size but they do charge for shipping on orders under £45. They charge me anyway!!! :?

That is what I meant, they don't have a minimum order size to get FREE shipping, unlike some others
