    Two posts on the forum in the past year? One asking for help (no response), and one by the moderator.

    Looks like a zombie forum.

    The useful thing is that they post product manuals there.

    I went to the WTTOOL store in Stoughton, Massachusetts about 10 years ago (it looks like it has since closed). It looked like a swap meet... disorganized clutter, stuff just randomly stacked on tables, and broken dirty machinery. I have read similar reports of their other locations.

    That kind of influences me when I shop their catalog.

    Now that Enco no longer exists, I will probably have to reconsider my bias.

      That's the way the charlotte store was also. It closed last year.

        Their forum is more of a "what we sell" help forum. Wholesale has been hit hard with the offshoring crunch, many branches have closed. Neatness has never been a big deal for them, organized chaos is a better description. If they have what you want then it is hard to beat their prices but frequently it is "on a boat from China". I have purchased a lot of goods from them in the past including a 13 x 40 lathe (pretty decent one too) and a RF-45 clone mill, also a nice machine for it's size except for the crap motor which I replaced.
