small bit source

Recommended Posts

Just read the February 2015 SMA news letter.  In their Mayflower group, Don Dressel discussed drill bits.  He was trying to drill brass.  The bits he had from the usual suspects for  model tools failed to perform. They were the lesser and less expensive bits manufactured in China.  He just happened to have some bits made in Japan and he reported that the performance was superior.  He advised that the better quality bits(actually he said far superior), and therefore more expensive bits are made in the USA, Japan and Germany.  His friend Steve Jones recommended a supplier called Travers.   www.travers.com   Apparently they have a great supply in small sizes, as well as HSS miniature end mills.
