Since then, thanks to the support of a wide range of businesses across the country, we have grown from strength to strength and now offer a complete selection of key products used in the meatal fabrication / manufacturing sector in Australia.

Perhaps our biggest growth product in terms of sales into the metal fabrication sector over the last three years has been drill bits. We offer M2 Jobber bits for general engineering as well as M35 (5% Cobalt) for Stainless steel fabrication in both sets and individually, in metric and also in imperial sizes. All of our drill bits are fully ground out of one block of material and guaranteed to be of the highest commercial grade or your money back. Sharp pricing on these bits will save you up to 70% against what you are currently paying for highest quality jobber drill bits and we offer free samples for testing on request. We also have a good range of M2 and M35 (5% Cobalt) double ended drill bits for pop / blind rivets in the standard sizes of No’s 11, 20 & 30.
To back this growth in our product ranges up we have also invested heavily in our own range of highest quality commercial grade safety gear – all certified to Australian Standards. Our gloves range include Foam Nitrile Gloves in both standard colouring and also in high visibility (orange). PU Gloves in standard and also Touch screen (woven with carbon fibre), and Sandy Nitrile Gloves rated to Cut 5 against DIN 388 and the reciprocal Australian Standard.

Our P2 Masks carry the 5 Tick Quality Product mark indication they are independently certified against the Australian Safety Standard by SAI Global. P2 is one of the highest particle filtration certifications you get in a safety respirator. All of our P2 masks are equipped with valves which make for a much more comfortable fit by allowing exhaled air to escape easily, which also reduces fogging if the wearer is also using safety glasses.

These masks are especially engineered for applications that involve strong odours, minimising smells like epoxy etc that are common in a range of different industries
