We had the pleasure of touring Tom Balding Bits and Spurs and were impressed by Tom's passion for quality, being a great employer, and for making beautiful industrial design. His staff was friendly, the showroom is well-done, and again, the work is beautiful.

The owner (Tom Balding) was able to give us a personal tour when we stopped in. Beautiful bit and spurs all crafted right there. This is a must see if you have a little time to go by their shop.
