Just go on amazon and order what you need.
Amazon is not usually the cheapest place. Spend some down time searching different sites. Google model #'s. I've been buying a lot of small tools lately & they've all been online purchases from lots of different places. Pay attention to tax & shipping in the final #. Lots of places offer free shipping, take advantage of it.

i dont think tool suppliers are going to give bids on $3k worth of tools...its a bit odd to me

when i went into business i bought $7k+ worth of tools....i just went to AMAZON.com....they have the best prices

never buy a reconditioned tool......ive never bought anything reconditioned that wasnt broke already(never fixed) or didnt break soon after

SOLD!!!

Oh wait...you mean you'll SELL them for $4000?

BTW, I agree with a few others. IMO, $3000 worth of tools isn't something a tool supplier is going to mess with "quoting". $30,000 maybe...MAYBE......$300,000 sure

I have shopped around but no single supplier carries everything I want. I will just send out a few Emails to the big online suppliers.
Is this because you expect to get a price break for $3K of tools? Or is this some complicated SEO spam thing, where after a couple more posts you reveal the online supplier that really wowed you with their awesome prices? I'm betting a quarter that's where this is going.

Well let us know what you want. The list can't be that long if its only $3k I have that much in my jobsite table saw. But for all we know you want a box full of utility knives.

Grainger would prob be your best bet. Double the price of amazon but they will source you what you want for that price.

like almost everyone has said try amazon. No need to pay anyone to search for you and within 30mins you will be through checkout and done.

He may have meant that figuratively, but $3k isn't a lot of money these days for tools. Sad but true

It's amazing how much money you have wrapped up in tools after you've been in business for a while. All tools: pencils to saws, to vehicles
You're not telling me anything I don't know. My tools are insured for $60K & I don't have enough insurance to replace everything. $3K is a lot of money for a jobsite saw, just wanted to see what it looks like:whistling
