I tried finding a website for them but came up empty. Do they have a site?

Thanks!

Wow…. I just googled them and they are right here in Jacksonville, FL. Just about 15 – 20 Minutes away from me. I will have to look into them.

Thanks for the heads-up there Mark!

I bought a couple blades from them in December and asked to be put back on their catalog list. I haven’t seen it yet though. Something good to watch for in the mail.

NeoDon,
If my memory serves me right Inturra has no web site. Call or email for a catalog.

This is true, they have no website (unless it is very new). But you can call for a catalog, and it is a great piece of literature.

The phone numbers aren’t in service. Does anyone have a way of knowing a local number or if they still are in business? I see they are selling their products on Highland, so what is their story.

I wanted to find them because I need new thrust bearings . Does anyone have recommendation for a Delta 14”?

I got new springs from Itura Designs about 10 years ago. They’ve been around a long time. I’ve not gotten a catalog for a while.

I understand they don’t give out free catalogs any more, only if you order something or pay for the catalog. I would really like one but haven’t needed anything yet. I cant understand how in todays world they don’t have a web site, that just boggles my mind.

Kinda like Catch 22, I can’t order if I don’t have a catalog and I can’t get a catalog unless I order? My head hurts!

With no web presence they must have more work than they can handle or going out of business or looking for someone else to deal with the retail customer. I just wish we knew!

It took a long time to get a catalog for me, but worth the wait,
A lot of folks do not want the hassles and time consuption of a web site,(maybe he has a life) he is probably just doing fine selling his products through retailers.
The catalog is more like a book so I could understand why he is charging for it.
I don’t think he is into mass retail sales.
Call him, he will help you with whatever you need not need, real down to earth person.

Looks the same. I’ve had e-mails bounced back and someone at SawMill was asking if they were still in business. So, I’m not sure what’s going on.

Just got off the phone with Mr. Iturra. He is without a doubt the best source of information on how to improve your bandsaw performance. The address and number in the post above are current. They also tell me there is now a 6 pg. catalog with product info that he will send for free. His big catalog is included in every order at no extra charge, and is worth 5x whatever he would ask you to pay for shipping/handling if you don’t plan to make an order. Call or write Louis. He is very generous with his time and advice. Too bad more companies don’t provide this type of customer service. You have a customer for life in me. Thanks for all your support and encouragement.
