||You simply won't find a larger or better place for machinery than Redmond&Son Machinery. They are the largest Delta, Powermatic and Jet dealer in the South-East. They warehouse showroom is over 50,000 sq.ft. They sell huge equipment costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, but they also have the largest inventory of new and reconditioned Unisaws and smaller machines like that. They have the best prices and by FAR the best selection of woodworking machinery in Atlanta. Even if you aren't buying, this place is worth a visit, just to see all the machines. Your eyes will bug out ;)
|Plus, they're a family run business and are probably the nicest bunch of people you'll meet.
They are near the corner of Camp Creek Parkway and Fulton Industrial Blvd. and not too far from Six-Flags. Tell Rich or Scotty that I sent you. They should pay me a commission for all the people I send to them, but they don't ;)
Other places for tools and accessories
Hardware near downtown and Woodcrafts
on Holcomb Bridge Road just off GA400 in Alpharetta. And Stone
Mountain Power Tools has three locations in the north end of Atlanta.
And of course, Atlanta is the home of Home
Depot, wo where else can you visit more than 20 different
HomeDepot stores? And with Lowes headquartered
up in North Carolina, you can be sure that you'll find a Lowes across the
street from each Home Depot here in Atlanta.
My favorite is lumber mill is Suwanee Hardwoods
Lumber. They have good prices and stock on oak, cherry, walnut, maple
(and others). They are really nice people there. (770)945-2102
Another good place is Pharris Lumber in Newnan.
They've got good prices and a huge stock on oak, and a few others species,
but it is all rough sawn, so you need your own jointer and planer. (770)251-5690
Hardwoods/AWPC has a huge selection (30+ species) and huge quanitites
but higher prices.
Hardware have a good selection but small quantities and higher
As a woodworker who makes my own machines and
jigs, I find that the Metal
Supermarket off I-85 north outside I-285 in Doraville
is a great place to buy small quantities of steel and aluminium. Great
for making mobile bases and tool stands.
And the Delta/Porter-Cable service center (404-608-0006)
is close to the airport, on I-75 in Forrest Park.
Atlanta is truly blessed with some of the best woodworking sites in the world.
