Shipping Policy

We Are Changing The Way You Buy Your Woodturning Supplies.

We understand that shipping is a consideration in making a purchase.

Our fully computerized warehouse and inventory system allows us to process your orders quickly and efficiently. Most orders are picked and packed within hours of being received. Orders fulfilled from our warehouse will ship the same day when placed by 1pm EST.

We offer Standard Shipping for FREE on most orders over $50.00 and for a flat rate of only $4.95 on orders less than $50.

You can upgrade your shipping method to Two Day Shipping for most standard size items under 10 lbs. That includes pen kits, most turning tools, lathe accessories and more. Two Day Shipping is only $9.95 for qualifying orders below $100 and $4.95 for orders over $100.

Shipping Policy

We would love to offer free shipping for all of our products, due to the variety in products sizes and weights, that is impossible. Please read the sections below which describe details for Product Types, Shipping Methods and Rates as well as Shipping Zones. These factors are considered when shipping your order.

Product Types

Every item on our website has a “Product Type” which is displayed on the website’s product page.

Items that weigh less than 10 pounds with dimensions under 650 cubic inches.

Heavy
Items that weigh more than 10 pounds, but less than 25 pounds.

Extra Heavy
Items that weigh more than 25 pounds, but less than 50 pounds.

Freight
Items that ship from our warehouse and require the use of a freight carrier. An example of this would be a Record Power Regent Lathe or any large machines or accessories that are in stock in our warehouse.

Items that ship from one of our manufacturers, and these often require the use of a freight carrier. An example of this would be a lathe, or any large lathe accessories, from manufacturers such as Robust, Oneway, Powermatic or Jet.

The rate is based upon shipping to a residential address and requiring curbside liftgate delivery service. If you have different requirements, please call us to discuss it. Freight items can only be shipped to a residential or commercial street address in the US48.
