I’m wondering if anybody has any experience with this firm. (http://www.tools-plus.com) Their selection is wide and their prices seem quite good. But, anybody can have a tempting web site.

My only gripe, if you can call it that, with them is that they advertise $6.50 shipping but this price is valid only for a business address. I am not sure if they require a loading dock or not even with a business address. Shipping to a residental address is much higher. CPO Jet and Powermatic shipping costs are always much lower than Tools-Plus.

If you have a workplace then have them ship it there to your attention. They are real and legitament.

Tools Plus has the $6.50 shipping with liftgate service to residential no extra charge for Jet and Powermatic tools. That is a pretty hefty savings over some other vendors.

They are a great tool supplier. I have bought numerous hand and power tools from them over the last 15 years or so. I bought my 12” Makita SCMS from them..they had the best price anywhere, by at least 50 bucks. It’s a bit of a drive for me…about 40 minutes or so but they have a great selection of professional hand and power tools at very competitive prices. I like Coastal Tools as well…but Tools Plus has a slightly better selection of woodworking machinery.

Great company to deal with. I bought my Powermatic table saw from them. Most of the time even with freight cost they beat local pricess with tax. That includes tailgate service to your door.
