After reading the thread re another supplier I thought I would compliment Wealden (router bits, blades, etc.)
I have recently purchased items and had some very satisfying service from these people and next day deliveries cost included in product.

Yes I would agree, excellent service! I now use them for all my router bits. I'm just hoping that they develop their range into other own brand accessories, as I find Trend's pricing too high.

Funnily enough I only came across this company for the first time yesterday in the router magazine which I don't normally buy (seems quite a good magazine actually). Apart from the delivery being good what are the quality of their router bits like? Are they their own brand?

Used them for the last 2 years for both bits, toggle clamps and sawblades. Again, next day delivery every time, also good for advice if you have questions about bits. The bits themselves are very high quality - the best I've used in fact. The sawblades less so - Trend still beats them here.

I understand the bits are sourced from a variety of locations, but to Wealden's tooling specifications; AFAIK Wealden don't manufacture any of the bits themselves (Titman do though - anyone tried them?)

Cheers

Yes they are good and efficient suppliers but I suppose the mail strike will upset things for a while. Usually next day delivery in the past.

I think it's shocking that smaller companies like Wealden are having to make a loss by subsidising delivery charges because of the mail strike - really irritates me.

Another vote for Wealden here. I have used them for 20 years, and had nothing but the very highest service standards and top quality cutters from them. I wouldn't use anyone else.

I'd check by telephone first - I don't think they do over-the-counter sales.
