? about the Eastwood Company?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by sled51merc, Jan 6, 2004.

  1. I was thinking about buying some hammers and dollys from the Eastwood Company, but if I remember right I haven't seen alot of positive feedback about them. Just wondering, are they not a good company to order from and why?

    Thanks,

    Try their Chassis Black paint. That shit has to wear off your fingers!!! Lasts a long time but you only put it on once. To go over it you have to grind the old off and start over or it has a reaction and curls up.

    i think their reputation is good as far as service and products...their reputation is bad for stealing ideas from the metalshapers guys like the benchtop planishing hammer and english wheel......

    I have bought alot of stuff, mustly small things over the years. Very good service and the products are good. Some of their stuff is a little pricey, but overall very satisfied.
     
  11. I've never had a problem with them

    I like Martin Hambers....
     
  13. Ron Covell is dropping the Martin line. I just ordered some stuff, they still have lots in stock. I wonder if this is due to Eastwood picking up the line????????? I like Covell better!

    I do know one thing, their stand at Carlisle sucks. It looks like a big discount tent. I mean they had some good stuff, but it looks like they only bring certain products and then not enough of it. later plmczy

    Ron Covell is a CLASS act.
    Quality products and service that is second to none.
    If I need anything related to metalshaping,that is the first place I look.
    Other decent suppliers include:
    Fournier Enterprises,
    Trident tools
     
  16. Eastwood is a great company to buy from, and they sell some good stuff , but i think they are a little high priced. if you shop around for other suppliers you will find the same things at a lower cost.

    my experience with them is that they ship slower than old people, uh, eat.
