Bang good.com

I just found this place.   It's a clearing house for just about anything, including tooling for the shop.   I imagine some of its junk, but the prices are unbelievably low.

I ordered a few things...I'll let you know what I find.

They are not to bad , but itís caveat emptor

Order a product get a good one ,order it again and may be
As you say itís more like amazon

One note of caution the gear cutters are numbered backwards donít ask how I know  they are ok for us but NBG for a production run

As I said you can get some good and bad

Hello Dave,

I ordered a bunch of C2 and C6 tools from them and so far what I have used do not last. The C6 parting tools will only make a couple of cuts before the tip breaks. One of the 60degree threading tools have made four 3/4-16 by 1-inch long threads and still seams OK. However I went through two of them when I made my Press/Brake. I ordered from them because it is getting so hard to find 1/2 x 1/2 C2 and C6 carbide tipped tools. Hope you have better luck with them.

Have a great day,
Thomas

Doubleboost on youtube has done reviews a few of their products.

Might be worth a look if you can understand his Newcastle accent   :) .

Depends on the type of involute cutter. Imperial (DP) cutters are numbered one way, metric (module) cutters are numbered the reverse way. That's across industry, not just specific to Banggood.
