Machine tool dealers Macrotec’s new Findamachine site has connected over 10,000 potential buyers with grateful dealers since launching a new service in May. The newly updated site at www.findamachine.com offers users the opportunity to search for new or used lathes currently listed on over 1000 stock lists on the internet. The simple search system allows users to search on any field from a database of over 2500 new and used lathes and click directly through to the seller.
“We opened up the service free to anyone without requiring registration and suddenly the flood gates opened “ said Richard Moss, Chief Developer of Findamachine.com. “It’s the only site that is updated daily automatically, so users know it’s up to date.”
Macrotec Machine Tools Ltd have been developing their Findamachine site for some years now and have added 4500 lathe specifications to an extensive machine tool directory to provide a valuable and user friendly tool for engineers all over the world. The list of lathes for sale is updated daily and includes machine tool dealers and auctioneers sites.
“We’ve cut out the middleman and allow potential buyers to click straight through to seller’s websites. We take no part in the sales process and charge no commission for sales. We are financing the site from advertising revenues,” says Stuart Moss Managing director of Findamachine. “From the feedback we are getting it’s definitely the way forward for the market. Machine tool buyers love Findamachine because it saves them so much time trawling the dealers’ sites on the internet. It was the time it took us searching the web for a lathe with a specific dimension for one of our customers that gave us the idea for the Findamachine project 3 years ago. Because we are engineers ourselves we’ve worked hard to make the search as simple and comprehensive as possible and we are continually building our database of specifications and machine tool dealers.”
