About Us

There are numerous reasons for someone to have a home workshop. For many it is an escape from their everyday life (I said life... not wife). For some it's a part time career. For most it's a place to hone their skills. The time spent in one's work shop can be filled with many emotions ranging from the greatest of joy to the torture of frustration. This is the reality of learning and improving one's skills.

Being a frustrated home hobbyist is not very much fun. This is especially true when it comes to buying supplies. There never seems to be enough disposable income and the last thing anyone wants to do is waste money on poor quality or, worse yet, the wrong product. Everyone deserves to be an informed consumer so they can make an educated decision.

One of the reasons I started Southdale Tool & Supply is because I want to learn and help others learn along with me. I do not think that people should just order a part number and hope it's what they really wanted. I believe that before you click 'Add to Cart' you should have the confidence that the product you are ordering is right for you. I also believe that you shouldn't have to look all over the place to get the answers. That is why there is  relevant information about each product where it should be... on the product page. Information like product descriptions, brochures, material safety data sheets, videos, and even user comments and reviews. If you're still looking for information, just send a note on the 'Contact Us' page.

Confidence should also come from knowing that I have my own home workshop and I use these products. I've learned that using low quality products often saves money up front while wasting your time and sending the frustration meter through the roof. For instance, people generally hate sanding. The low quality abrasives sold at most hardware stores generally perform poorly and don't last. This just adds to the frustration of the task. I've 'been there, done that' and a that is why at Southdale Tool & Supply my goal is to provide Quality Products for the Informed Customer

Thank you for your interest in Southdale Tool & Supply. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.
