As some of you know I'm a woodturner as well as a biker (latter when the heart bit is finished repairing) . Well in being such I'm also a bit of a gadget freak and a toolaholic. So here is where I buy some of my precision tools, its also fun to surf since they have a huge range and could even solve Coeurdelion's optimate problem https://www.chronos.ltd.uk/acatalog/Car ... rs--.html I dont work for them but I find that their prices are competitive and their quality is good. :)

Have fun

Pierre

Aha - Toolaholics corner!

I'v been buying from Chronos for years as well - ok but their customer service and order processing and delivery can be a bit ragged at times.

Some other suppliers with similar product lines:-

https://www.rdgtools.co.uk/index.html - shipping to france up to 31kg is only £9.50 - very good customer service.

For woodworms mainly - https://www.axminster.co.uk - a bit expensive imho but will sort out problems amicably.

And a French company( actually the french branch of a german company) - huge catalogue - tools - machinery - garden stuff - vehicle stuff, I've bought a lot of kit from them over the years including a large vertical log splitter which turned up with a small hydraulic fluid leak from the fluid tank transit cap not snugged up tight - emailed them with a photo - a 5 litre bidon of hydraulic oil turned up FOC within the same week.

Most if not all stock is free delivery within France.

I use MotoTaco in Limoges - a bit like a smaller version of Machine Mart. And because its not online, I'm like a kid in a sweetshop, always coming out with tools I dont actually need right away. They actually had a special spark plug spanner in stock for my old Peugeot - unusual as its 300mm long.

I always thought I had more than enough tools and equipment from my previous life, But still buy more.... Recently bought a Myford ML7 Lathe, and its already paid for itself with parts I have made and repaired to keep all my other stuff working.

I'm thinking of starting a Myford museum - I've got an ML7 and a Super 7

Did anyone ever buy one of these camera gadgets from Liddls? I did, and used it once so far to investigate an inaccessable panel on my old car.

Yup got one of those - handy gadget because the camera head is only 8mm diameter so it will go down a spark plug hole and it's also waterproof so can investigate drains etc.- but I haven't been able to get my head around the video out facility to get the picture on a laptop yet.
