Over the last year, bought lots of items from Penn Tool Co. (800-526-4956) or
Their best values are the Bison line, which includes Pafana lathe tooling, Dolfa indexable end mills & TMX precision measurement.

Be sure to request their 176 page, 2004 "green sale catalog" (prices are still good). Great folks to work with!

A big yes on the Dolpha mills,good tools,reasonable price.

Haven't tried the mills yet, did buy the Pafana boring bars. Dead copies of Valenite, right down to the seat & clamp. The 1 3/4" bar is $90, and it's hard to buy a big used bar on eBay for much less.

Their Bison ER-40 collet set is hundreds less than anywhere else.

If I'm going to purchase imported tools I'd rather buy East European than chinese any day. I almost think they could produce fair superior hobbiest type machines at not too far above the cost of the PRC stuff with far higher quality

I really expected to see a joke in this thread. I mean the header reads like a one liner.

I recently bought an 8" Bison 4 jaw chuck (A1-6) and it seems to be nice quality.
