    I just bought a new faceting machine from Ultratecs website. I was told they would send me a tracking number when the machine is shipped but does anyone know how long it usually takes to ship the machine?

    Pre-covid, it was 6-8 weeks. During early covid I had a new one arrive at 8 weeks. They are super friendly. It’s all manufactured on site. Just give them a call and ask.

    I know there are people out there who are sales representatives of Ultra-tec selling the machines. Did you know of any pros/cons of buying directly from the website as opposed to a sales rep? TIA

      the biggest pros I could see was tax related. I have yet to encounter any cons

    Dayton- The current quoted lead time is 12 weeks. Many variables may affect this. The last few few machines I have sold were shipped in the 12-13 week time frame. Faceters Paradise has 10 machines in order at any one time, so we are able many times to get a machine delivered faster. If you make it to Tucson come visit!!

    the wait is worth it no matter how long. many machine are going by the way of the dino’s but this family is keeping theirs going by generations. just heard facetron now no longer. hopefully that won’t happen to ultra tec.
    and when you have an ultra tec you have the best out there. my 1974 V2 is still teaching new faceter as well as my V5. mike zinski
