Good day fellow woodworkers ! As a Canadian resident I’m a little frustrated in getting good quality tools & accessories online in Canada. Right now I’m looking for Fuller countersink sets to use on Baltic Birch Plywood. Ordering across border is a real pain. Extra Duty charges, etc;.... plus a long delivery time. Anyone know of any places / web sites in Canada? I’ve tried Amazon ca. But the Fuller sets there seem to get very poor reviews. Inferior products??? ( I’m thinking copycat here). So,,... anyone now of any good tool stores in Canada to get Fuller products, or others, with out ordering across the border?

Many Thanks!!!

I haven’t tried them myself but Lee Valley tends to only sell fairly high quality tools. This company is one of the few that I would buy product on based on their reputation and not necessarily that of the tool; in my view if LV is carrying it it is probably a good tool. They also have GREAT customer service so if the bits don’t work to your satisfaction you have a pretty good chance they will help you get what you are looking for.
