I don’t know if any of you deal with They are a pretty good source in my opinion, and I’ve been satisfied with the price and quality of everything I’ve ever purchased from them.

I was kind of shocked when I received this email from them yesterday. Of course I never heard of the brand, and they’ve got to be some poorly made junk, but the prices are enough to grab your attention.

yeah, thats pretty incredible – I think that the material alone would cost just as much here in the states…

on a side note – if I spend any more $$$ I would really have to build another bed REAL fast. (I feel guilty buying a pack of screws for $3.99 these days)

As Dick said, There catalog used to come to me all of the time. Never bought any power tools but they had other stuff similar to Rockler and Woodcraft that I purchased- never had a problem.

I found this on Sawmill Creek, someone said, “The Woodtek is made by Geetech, who also makes the GI 50-220CM1, the Sunhill CT-250T, and Craftex hybrids….all appear to be the same basic saw with different bolt-ons.”
I didn’t research extensively, but appears to be a quality company as the others have said. I just received my Jet contractors saw yesterday, and there are some striking similarities between the Geetech TS and the Jet.

Great prices on those tools. I have bought quite a few things from them as they as located in NC. Great customer service as well. I’ll have to look into that table saw.

A shop I worked in had woodworkers supply yellow and green machines, mostly different sanders. They got a lot of their supplies there and seemed pretty good all around.

I bought a commercial 20” disc sander a few years back by woodtek and it has been perfect..absolutely perfect..not a single thing wrong with it. The balance of the big disc was unbelievable and it would continue to spin for at least 20 minutes after I shut it off till it stopped.. At the time it was $900..but has gone up a bit from there.. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy more woodteks in the future..
