About Us

Trusted Tool Sales and Tool Repair


The Toolshed of Bristol is a trusted distributor of cordless, air, and DC electric tools in Northern Indiana, Southern Michigan, and surrounding areas. We work closely with plant managers, equipment managers, and factory managers to provide the best electric tools and parts, industrial power tools and parts, material handling equipment, and more, to our customers in the RV, manufacturing, and heavy equipment industries. 


We are a certified warranty center for Makita, Sioux, Universal Tool, and Aircat tools.


We have tool repair in our blood – that’s how The Tool Shed of Bristol got started – and our tool repair services include cordless, pneumatic air, electric power tool repair and maintenance, evaluations, and testing.


We’ve moved well into the future here at The Toolshed of Bristol but our customer service approach is the same as it’s always been. Simple and old-fashioned. We can probably fix it, but if we can’t – we make sure to have what our customers need and can deliver directly to you and your business.


We’re all grown up here at The Toolshed of Bristol, but the old sign is still on the door. Rest assured that we always have time, and a smile, for walk-ins from down the block.

Family-Focused Since Day One

In 1981, Gary Lambright founded The Toolshed of Bristol in a location just off the southern bank of the mighty St. Joseph River in Bristol, Indiana. The company began humbly – as a side project for the hard-working, longtime heavy construction worker – but quickly turned into a thriving, family-owned and family-operated business. 

Since the days of its founding – and now under the leadership of Gary’s son, Sam Lambright – The Toolshed of Bristol has proven what a little bit (or a lot) of hard work and grease and grime under the fingernails can add up to. Almost 50 years later, we service a wide array of industries and customers and we continue to grow; expand our products and services; and improve as a leading provider of tool sales and tool repair in the Midwest and beyond.
