End mills and tooling
« on: September 19, 2007, 05:39:46 PM »
Hi all, just wanted to share a recent shopping experience with you all.

I stumbled across a website of a company called TRAVERS Tool Company INC, (www.travers.com).
Spent the next two hours dribbling onto my keyboard while searching through their website, what an amazing range of tooling and at reasonable prices.

I submitted an order for a heap of endmills and it turned up on my doorstep 8 days later, considering I live in New Zealand I thought that was pretty good service.

Excellent people to deal with.

Cheers. :)

AWESOME!!!  I've never bought anything from Travers, I usually buy from MSC.  I might have to give them a look the next time I'm in the market for something.  8 days is really quick....that must be one fast shipping boat....haha

I've been ordering tooling from Travers for about 6 years...every year they send me a new catalog...it's four inches thick...   :o

I need to order a bunch of end mills myself...little tiny ball-end mills...and a couple 1/8" - 3/32" end mills...good for re-profiling the rear of an A2 receiver into a 607 receiver...   ;D
