Famag Drill bits
« on: May 12, 2017, 10:48 AM »
I've been searching for Famag bits in the USA. Their website doesn't say, and their contact page returns an error.

Does anyone know of a retailer list in the USA?

Woodcraft used to carry them and I think still does.

There is a company called alfa tools peddling some famag bits on amazon.  It seems like they have access to the entire line, but they don't have an online presence, you probably need to call them to place an order.

@RKA I saw that, but didn't know if they were genuine Famag or knockoff.  I think I saw "bormax 2" but didn't see the Famag name.  I'll check again.  Woodcraft used to carry them as did traditionalwoodworker.com.  But the latter is apparently out of business.

@Cincinnati Woodcraft still has them online. I also think most of the stores have stock as well. Although last weekend I was in a Woodcraft and their selection on the Bormax was much more limited than the last time I was there.

I ended up ordering a set of 10 Famag brad-point bits, in metric sizes, from Dieter Schmid in Germany.  Relatively painless process with no hiccups. 

They were glad to take my money,  [blink].

Just want to say if you are looking for non forstner like brad point and such, you can't do better than WL Fuller in my view.  I am with you though, we like what we like.
