I've read some around the notion of having a personal repo and they all seem to focus on publishing your own work to the repo to make it publicly available. I have a large set of 3rd party jar (SDKs) that I would like to add to a repo so the I can add them as Maven dependancies in my projects. That way when other folks in the company grab the project they get everything they need. Is this possible? Could it be run from an FTP server? Are there tools (free?) that can help?

Thanks!

There are open source maven repos. The most popular one is nexus, and then there is artifactory. Both are free. I use artifactory. It's pretty easy to setup. I've heard hat nexus is pretty easy too

I do exactly this, using Nexus. For more details, there's a similar thread in this forum running right now that discusses such things at length.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
