Default Eckold purchase

Like a lot of people on this forum I've wanted a eckold for many years. But good grief they are expensive and hard to get information and a price on them too. I am always looking at used machine dealers, ebay, Craigslist, all that stuff.
So I finally got one, I bought a kf 170pd...but the reason I am posting (I don't post often) is to say what a excellent experience I had with Josh at Olympus Machanery group, a great price (if there is such a thing for anything made by eckold) and he was very knowledgeable about the machine and dies unlike any other eckold dealer I've talked with. He use to work for roper-whitney. So take it for what it's worth but if someone one does ya bad everyone is real quick to complain but if someone does ya right ya never hear about it, so I just wanted to put it out there.

Bart, that's good news.
There are many sellers but few who understand the essence of the matter. Many sellers it only offers a product without in-depth knowledge with only a high price.
Let it good work for you.

Thanks for the shout-out Bartman! I just started my company a few months ago and my goal is to only represent high-quality brands/products, I don't want to just add any "made in China" knock-offs.


I'm representing a few product lines right out of the gate, including a few niche builders some of you might be familiar with, and I hope to add more brands in the coming weeks. I'm also open to your suggestions for products/brands I could be seeking out as there is a lot of experience here in forum.



Check out what I have thus far:

Hi Bartman,
I happened to see a post two weeks back about the 170 machine - seems that Mr. James (Austin, Tx?) has acquired one. Made a nice photo-op with him.
