Light Tool Suppl

About Us

Michael Elson 
Light Tool Supply

For as long as I can remember, I have been surrounded by tools. As a young boy I worked summers packing orders and unloading trucks at my father's tool and supply company. After graduating from college, I immediately went to work full-time for my father and have been in this industry ever since.  Over the years I have learned this business inside and out and have spent many hours using that knowledge to improve the mail order supply business. I have seen that business change drastically over the years. The most dramatic change is from a business based on the paper catalog to one based on products sold via the internet. Subsequently, after many years of experience, I decided to create my own company to do what I know best. Light Tool Supply is now quickly bringing tools to loyal customers at the best prices possible.  I encourage you to use our vast experience as a resource for all your tooling needs.  If you see something on our website that you do not feel is the best price, please feel free to email me directly at michael@lighttoolsupply.com.  I also would like you to email me or my staff with any manufacturer's Part# from our long list of vendors at the bottom of this page for a low price quote. Additionally, do not hesitate to contact Light Tool Supply with any of our competitors' part numbers. It would be my pleasure to cross reference those part numbers with ours and beat their prices! I realize there are many companies to choose from; I hope you will choose Light Tool Supply.

Thank you,
Michael Elson

What is the warranty on your tools?
Most of the warranties are by the mfg and are for one year. Some are more or less than one year depending on the mfg. Please inquire on length of warranty before you purchase if concerned.

Do you Ship Outside the United States?
Yes. Light Tool Supply is happy to ship outside the U.S. You can contact us prior to ordering or simply place the order online and we will get back to you. We have found that small light packages(under 5 pounds) can be shipped very economically through USPS or DHL. For questions contact info@lighttoolsupply.com

Who pays for duties and taxes on International Orders?
The customer has to pay the duties and taxes to the delivery company upon receiving the order. These fees are not included in the shipping charge billed by Light Tool Co. These fees are individually determined by your government. If you would like more information please email info@lighttoolsupply.com

How do I calculate shipping?
Most shipping is calculated automatically before you finish paying for your order. In the case of items that are over 150 lbs and must go by truck, shipping is also calculated automatically. However we may need to contact you about additional charges such as residential delivery and Liftgate Truck Charge. We can also ship truck shipments to your local Truck Terminal for you to pick up.

What do I do if I receive an order damaged?
Please take extra care to make sure the box or pallet (truck shipments) is delivered in good condition before you sign for it. Light Tool Supply can not accept responsibility for damaged items you sign for in good condition.
