    I have questions about calling a distributor or wholesaler or supply house a "jobber". I have seen it in mostly older books and I think it is where we get jobber length bits from, but is it an old term or is it regional or specialized to certain industries?

    Thanks for listening! And I believe jobber is an old term for the wholesaler, attributed to them by the fitters. 
    Retired and loving it.
