Their website says they are in Silverton, Oregon which is a little NE from Salem and south of Portland and have been in business for 30 years. https://bitsbits.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=102 It sounds like a small family type business similar to Whiteside and in fact they appear to be selling some of Whiteside's bits. Prices on bits that aren't labeled as Whiteside look to be similar to what you would pay for top quality bits.

I've not bought from them but like the site and always check them when I'm looking for a bit. I really appreciate that they list Feeds and Speeds for their bits. You don't see that from a lot of other vendors, at least without some digging. FWIW, they seem to more focused on CNC if that matters to you.

Thank you for the feedback. I'll stay subscribed to their emails for now.

I really wish companies wouldn't sell our emails. Our at the least, I wish companies that buy our emails would tell us from where they got it.

I immediately thought of you when I saw where they were Jon. I knew you wouldn't be more than an hour away.

Interesting find. I only live about an hour from there and have visited Silverton several times ver the years. BUT, I was unaware of this firm. Sounds like I need another road trip.

Appreciate the post.
Definitely look forward to hearing about your visit.

Phil, Chuck

I dropped a note to the firm via their website and received a the follow kind reply:

Hi Jon,
Thank you for your interest in our company!
We mainly only offer Website/Catalog sales, we do allow customers to pick their orders no problem. But we do not have an in house showroom for our customers

So, it looks like aside visit is not in the offing without an order. Best review the catalog again.��

Jon
