I am tired of Chinese end mills. I would like some NOS USA made cutters. Is there a good one stop shopping seller on eBay anyone would recommend ?

You might consider keeping your eyes on or maybe even posting a wanted ad over on PM's tooling for sale forum. Every once in awhile somebody buys out another shop and ends up with 5M of a cutting tool that theyll never use 5 of.

I buy from dans_discount_tools, Cutting Edge Supply, you_cant_have_my_carbide and several others.

I know of no "one stop shopping" vendor, but there's a couple who seem to get a lot of good name brand stuff for cheap money.

I buy from toolyouup on ebay. He has tons of stuff. I got like 100 Lbs of end mills for 75 bucks. Well over 1500.00 retail in cutters.

HGR always has groups of endmills and other cutting tools up for auction on Fleabay.

If you get close a stop at HGR is acres of equip they know little of nothing about & will wheel & deal.
I bought 318 new end mills off craiglist, almost all carbide for $150 & while there a 410 lee hand loader & never issued M44 rifle, ended up all for $250. The loader is worth $100+, the rifle about $500 so the end mills better than free. I'd run a wanted ad in the for sale tool section on craigslist as many old retied machinist out there.
