Default Woodturningz quality?

Since i am new to turning i am still learning the quality of the suppliers, i have never bought from woodturningz so i figured i would ask for advice. I see they sell cigar kits for 3.95 each and since just about all i make is cigar pens thats a lot cheaper than wood craft.

My concern is the overall quality of the finish and the way the kits fit together, very rarely i have to put a drop of CA on a kit from woodcraft but the 45 mile drive and the 6.99 a kit are starting to tap me out! I have seen great reviews about woodturningz on here for their customer service so that is a plus. any comments are welcome.

I am not sure if they are on here or not so if you have had a bad experience with them please PM me rather than post it on here, i do not want to hurt anyones reputation.

Thank you in advance,

Chris their Cigar pen is a good quality, I've done quite a few, Woodcraft while it is fun to shop is not the cheapest place to buy pen kits, there are several vendors here on the site that also offer good quality pen kits. But Woodturningz kits are a good deal no junk.

Chris, I've never made a cigar pen, but I have done a lot of business with
Woodturningz. I'm very satisfied.

I love woodturningz.. I've used them alot in the past. I will say that I also suggest you look at the classifieds here, there is alot of great members that sell. If you do some more research, you will find that some of them sell berea (like many at woodcraft) and some sell PSI (like woodturningz does), but many kits are similar. The cigar is one that I don't believe I noticed much difference.

I do support my local woodcraft (way too much some days :) ) but for pen kits, I have to really be desperate when you can get them somewhere else for 2/3 the price... basically buy 2 get the 3rd free.

Thumbs up

Ryan with WOODTURNINGZ started on this site and has great prices and service. Ryan is a reseller and sells the kits you buy elsewhere.

He is only one of a few that know Alaska is part of the USA and can receive flat rate boxes! Thus, he doesn't charge additional fees to ship to Alaska!

He also has an annual New Years sale that is wonderful and you could win money.

I have made countless orders and all are handled in a very professional way.

I've always had great service from WoodTurningz. On the rare occasion where I've had a problem, it was taken care of quickly and professionally.

A+ for Woodturningz. Fast shipping, great service and great prices. They are among the best suppliers I've done business with.

Woodturningz is where I look first. If they don't have it on their site, I shoot Ryan an email or even call him. They usually get what I want.

Can't say enough nice things about Woodturningz -- fast friendly service. I've never received anything from them that I wasn't happy with.

One time, my Hotmail account was hacked, sending out bogus emails to my contact list. Ryan took the time to send me a nice note, letting me know that it had happened and that I likely had a bug somewhere.

Highly recommended.
