    JUST A FEW FACTS:

    Diamond Ground specializes in custom tungsten manufacturing. They customize tungsten alloys for many uses other than GTAW. That's what is so great about Jim's company. If it is tungsten and you can think of it, Diamond Ground can supply it: from underwater specialty apparatus to bio-medical research and don't forget TIG welding.

    I have also been looking at tungsten sources on the web and ebay.My vote is for Diamond ground and their ebay store Tungsten Direct.I spoke to Jim today and he was extremely helpful and a nice guy to deal with.It is'nt just their great prices,wealth of knowlege or phenominal reputation that catches My eye.I have noticed that stores such as the A........ store charges what I consider unreasonable shipping charges.Such as 1/16" tunsten=$6.50 ship+$2.00 for each add. pkg.,3/32"=$8.50 + $5.00 for each add. and 1/8"= $8.50 + $3.00 for each add.Then their decription says:If this is not acceptable,Do not bid...........SO I WONT.............Shipping overcharges on Ebay are a real pet peave of mine.It is getting out of hand.On the other hand,Tungsten direct does not charge a handling fee and only charges $4.00 for first pkg.,then .50 cents for each additional pkg. to anywhere in the US.Dont get me wrong,I have nothing against A........ and the many stores like them on ebay,I am sure that they are fine sources for tungsten,I only disagree with their shipping practices.

    Good place to buy tungsten?

    I was wondering where a good place to by tungsten online is. my local shop has to order it anyway, so i might as well order it online and save money. i need 1.5% lanthanated, 1/16. i would buy 10 at a time, i think that's enough.

    thanks
