Woodworking machinery?

Post by F Flinstone » Sun Nov 25, 2018 1:25 pm

Where in France can you buy some? I dont mean Brico style, in the Uk you have Axminster/Charwood/Rutlands and Scott and Sargent, they can ship to France but its not cheap, and as I said on an earlier thread I may go to three phase so secondhand, but would prefer new, thanks.Ff

I have bought some machinery from:-
https://www.dema-france.com/
Had a problem where oil leaked during a delivery and they dealt with it promptly.
They are the french branch of a german company I think.

And recently had some spare parts for a Kity bandsaw from:-
https://www.probois-machinoutils.com/fr ... bois-metal
They also sell high-end woodworking machinery.

Buying new, I would still go back to Axminster Power Tools. The much higher price I'd have to pay in France well offsets the delivery charge. Second hand, the same logic applies. French people often think second hand stuff is worth more than new so unless you get lucky buying from a widow on LeBonCoin its a no brainer.

I'm not so sure about Axminster's prices being lower - have you seen their prices recently?
I'm interested in a small bench mounting cut-off bandsaw for metal. Axminster's price for their smallest is £875 free carriage to the EU
Ok it's on a stand I don't particularly want, but the near identical item from dema-france.com is €259 ttc with free delivery

Sorry have to agree with Fitter near me there is a private "ironmongers" its a large shop and they sell the "Jet" woodworking machinery, not the full range but a decent collection, the prices are a lot cheaper than "Axminster" however Iam on a couple of woody forums and "Axminster" are ok, but there is other makes which are better, iTech/ Startrite/ Sedgewick,etc, will have a look at the websites mentioned Thankyou

These French machine tool suppliers have been mentioned on Total France and other forums in the past (and still exist)
https://maisondutournage.com
https://www.guedo-outillage.fr
https://www.metiers-et-passions.com
https://www.otelo.fr
also, when checking, I also came across https://www.bordet.fr/

just searching for a particular machine tool e.g. "scie a ruban" brings up other suppliers and "scie a ruban d'occasion" gave secondhand machine suppliers

You might also try looking for French woodworking forums to see if there are any supplier recommendations
