Can anyone recomend a tool dealer in so. cal, hopefully los angeles, that carries more and larger assortment of shop tools ? looking to get new 15” or bigger planer and 8” jointer . My local rockler and woodcraft dont have much on the floor and am reluctant to buy online…willing to drive ..
thanks..

Battles hardware in Whittier. Look me up if you come out because I
live very close.

Also, several importers of tools have office/showrooms in the San Gabriel
Valley, Lobo and Kufo/Seco are the ones I’m aware of but there used
to be some others I’m not sure are around anymore.

For higher-end European type stuff stuff there is Eagle Machinery
in Altadena.

For used heavy iron there is Davis and Wells in Lynwood. They buy
and restore old machines. Prices are quite high compared to
buying from private sellers, but of course being a dealer they
offer a warranty I am sure.

It’s kind of cramped, but they have a range of machines in there. They
are a Shop Fox and Delta distributor of machines and can order things
for you. They probably have an 8” jointer and 15” planer on display -
I have not looked recently as I am pretty well set up.

There is also Laguna Tools in Irvine. Their prices are competitive
considering the class of machinery they sell.
