I got a set of Norseman when they were on sale on Amazon - still expensive, but I have been very happy with the quality.

I bought my Norsemans here, but never compared their prices to Amazon:

Fairbury Fastener

I bought individual bits, not complete sets - I just make pens.

Keep in mind that many excellent turners use inexpensive bits with super results. I know some also own Drill Doctors. My Norseman work well with the Drill Dr. too.

I also use this: https://www.amazon.com/Bostik-BladeC...WXPCKJBBVRVB6D

Tony,

How do you order from Fairbury? looking at their site, I don't see a way to select items for the cart.

NVM, found the answer. I see that you have to call in to order.

You are correct; you have to call them. Both reps/owners are nice guys. I should have noted that.
