I bought one of their bits from Amazon. I’ll update this message after I get my own LM and have a chance to try the bit out. They do seem to have an enormous range of products.

Another source is Aliexpress. This is a great option as long as you’re not in a hurry. Beginners should always start with cheap tooling because breakage is going to be part of the learning process.

I appreciate the site but would rather have brick and mortar store they could go to get them. Aliexpress is notorious for not sending what you order and the problems I see with various other people that have ordered there really turns me off suggesting them.

I have placed approximately 80 orders with Aliexpress to date and have had only one incorrect item and it was replaced free of charge without having to return the original piece. I’m quite satisfied so far, although I do understand your concerns.

Ok thanks for the info good to hear.

I’ve used Drill Bits Unlimited (https://drillbitsunlimited.com/Default.aspx). They sell both new and used bits. The used bits are resharpened. I’ve purchased quite a few bits from them and haven’t ever been disappointed. You can buy sets of bits or create your own set from their wide selection.

I’ve also bought a few bits from CarbidePlus, who have a store on EBay (https://www.ebay.com/str/carbideplus). They too, have been good bits.

Both of these offer quite reasonable prices on very good quality bits.
