Buying cutters

Where is the best place to buy cutters? Is there one brand better than the other? I just finished assembling my Shapeoko 3 last night and obviously need to buy more cutters. Lastly, does the software tell me or recommend what cutters to use? If not, how do i know?
Thanks!

You didn't say where you live, or what you are looking for.

If you live in the US:
  • You can always buy direct from Carbide3D.
  • If you are just experimenting and expect to break a lot of bits, I started with buying sets from China off of eBay.
  • If you are looking for great prices on good quality bits, I have found that drillman1 on eBay is great.
  • I don't have a suggestion for high end/name brand end mills; maybe Google search?
Hope that helps.
