Not sure if they have a store front or not. I assume that is the question. I was interested and checking out their cutting system a while back.

Yep they’re here in Portland Oregon. I know they are a mail order company, but I don’t know if they have a walk in store.

I remember browsing through their site … thinking … one day … one tool … will be mine.

I think it’s that stuff that you see showcased in beautiful shop-built machinist’s tool chests, all lined up pretty on green felt drawer liners.

And used by some real old-school artists.

I get the feeling he’s got a really loyal following who—like people that like expensive wine—line up to get all the new bits he puts out.
