Hi guys,I’m new to the forum (8:2:19) Has anyone got any info on itech machinery ??? I’m looking at a drum sander that Scott & seargeant are advertising on there web page.I can’t find much information regarding reviews etc.I know it’s connected to SIP somehow but any solid advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m based in Manchester if anyone’s interested in connecting with me to talk about woodworking,I’d describe myself as a keen hobbyist(all the gear and no idea, as my wife would say). Thanks in advance,Howard.

Based on what I read on another forum itech machinery is ok at hobby enthusiast level but the service from S&S was less than good over the ordering and delivery process. So maybe try and find a different supplier maybe

I have looked at Itech machines, they are all generic Chinese built, but so are most of the others! I did like the Spiral block planer, and for a nice price.

I have a couple of iTech machines, a linisher/edge sander and a downdraft extraction table. Both of which were purchased from Scott & Sargeant. As 9fingers mentioned if you can accept the poor level of service from purchasing from "Scott & Scarper" which generally means selling you something and then wanting nothing further to do with any aftercare, I would say ITech machines would be perfectly fine for a hobbyist.


Again as mentioned in another post the packaging and little paperwork in the form of an instruction manual indicates it is a Chinese product, but I imagine very little machinery isn't from China within this price bracket. So I would say the reason I purchased these machines as for me it was down to

(A) Cost

&

(B) For the amount I would use these two machines over the course of one year I couldn't really justify the outlay for a more industrial piece of equipment such as Felder or Volpato.


As always try to buy the best your budget will allow.
