I got my 2008 10th Anniversary Bandsaw Catalog/Bible from Iturra Design, I must say it has everything you would ever want to know about or buy for a Bandsaw!! Every part and function of the saw in detail with pictures, His own parts he sells that upgrade and improve the saw. Also factory parts, blades ect.
Buying guide new or used, Repair and rebuild guide, Tuneup and maintenance, History of design and on and on!
I was going to buy a saw a few months ago, think I’ll study this first. Here’s the info if anyone is interested.
No web Site but Phone and E-Mail

I tried finding a website for them but came up empty. Do they have a site?

Thanks!

Wow…. I just googled them and they are right here in Jacksonville, FL. Just about 15 – 20 Minutes away from me. I will have to look into them.

Thanks for the heads-up there Mark!

I bought a couple blades from them in December and asked to be put back on their catalog list. I haven’t seen it yet though. Something good to watch for in the mail.

NeoDon,
If my memory serves me right Inturra has no web site. Call or email for a catalog.

This is true, they have no website (unless it is very new). But you can call for a catalog, and it is a great piece of literature.

The phone numbers aren’t in service. Does anyone have a way of knowing a local number or if they still are in business? I see they are selling their products on Highland, so what is their story.

I wanted to find them because I need new thrust bearings . Does anyone have recommendation for a Delta 14”?

I got new springs from Itura Designs about 10 years ago. They’ve been around a long time. I’ve not gotten a catalog for a while.

I understand they don’t give out free catalogs any more, only if you order something or pay for the catalog. I would really like one but haven’t needed anything yet. I cant understand how in todays world they don’t have a web site, that just boggles my mind.
