Does anyone use an online tooling/prototyping source?

The few local guys I have been using for my prototyping and tooloing needs have not been delivering the goods lately.  Is anyone out there using or knows of an online procurement source where I can get some better options?  Thanks.

I have not investigated this site very thoroughly but you could check out www.onvia.com and see if they have anything that could meet your needs.

RE: Does anyone use an online tooling/prototyping source?

You can try http://www.metalworkingshops.com. They have a database of machine shops and metalworking service companies that is searchable by keyword, industry served, etc. The Metalworking Resource Group is based in Indiana, but the members have experience working for companies throughout the world. Many are ISO certified.

If you need more information or help, call me at 800-877-5182 ext. 273.
