Hi guys

Just wondered how you would rate these manufacturers

Hammer
iTech
Minimax
Axminster (more hobbyist, I know)

Minimax over hammer. The other two are junk.
I prefer the scm family to felder. The scm minimax castings are nicer than the hammer.

Minimax (SCM)
Pretty good quality and built for trade/professional use.

Hammer
Less refined than Minimax but would be ok for DIY, light trade or light intermittent professional use.

Axminster
They import from all over, so some real junk, some quality stuff (sedgwick make or did some stuff for Axminster) be very careful who manufactured the machine.

ITech
No idea.

You're right about the Axminster.....
