Thread: Any Recommend Bridgewood Belt Sander Repairman in The Western New York Area?

    Any Recommend Bridgewood Belt Sander Repairman in The Western New York Area?

    Hey guys what's happening? We just got a doozy of a question on ToolCrib, one of those kinds of questions that makes me thankful for the Family

    OK here goes. You're in Western New York. Your Bridgewood belt sander breaks. Where do you go for repairs?



    I have a bridgewood bws-37 wide belt sander that needs some repair. Is there anyone in the western new york area that could fix it?
    So do you guys have any recommendations for him in that area?

    I guess his warranty's up or he wouldn't be looking for a repair man. Also I'll write him to see what's wrong - I always enjoy a good armchair fix it project. My grandfather always calls them an opportunity to "supervise"

    I'd have him call Wilke Tools, in York, PA. They're the dealer/distributor for Bridgewood tools. I'm sure they can recommend a repairman.

    Jim D - thanks for the tip. I think that one's a winner.

    I wrote to Wilke myself to see what they had to say - I'll post it here. At some point, who knows, it might be useful
