Anyone used any of these guys?
I have 2nd hand RV feeders from Grove and its very much pot luck, one works fine, one is damn near useless (it kinda looks like a prototype, holes in the wrong place etc). But they were sold pretty much on that basis.
Blundell seem quite good, but then we bought their own product, something else might be another story.

http://www.eltraco.com/ seem to be pan-european. Contacted me out of the blue in response to a form I do not recall filling in, offering to sell me a £350k selective soldering machine. Still, they do seem to have a bunch of kit.

Just got an email from http://evolvismt.com/ Looks to be a spinoff from Etek-Europe. Probably mostly a bit big for this forum but they do list MyData which is popular in all segments.

Hi used Eagle smt Ltd. in Hartlepool for wide range of old spares (2nd user kit), they seem to have some good contacts.
Daletech in Heywood, very helpful with advice on 2nd user kit and spares.
Tsautomation Ltd. Good industry knowledge.

Some companies in the grim north who we have used and found very helpful. As well as some on the list at top... good idea.

http://www.production-technology.com/
http://www.eagle-smt.com/ interestingly seem to also sell new Autotronik Pick and Place and the DEKtek ovens you can also see on stencilsunlimited.com
http://tsautomation.co.uk/ not the most informative of sites, not even the 'New' stuff is identified
http://www.adamtech.co.uk/ sells and services DEK printers
http://www.zpel.co.uk/Used-Soldering-Machines.html reflow mainly


William it could be handy if you could add details for Daletech and your northern people and what services they might offer.
Mike - I think there are a few in you initial list that are now defunct.

epsolutions now seem to use their website to sell sub contract services but I think they do also still sell/broker equipment. I guess you need to contact them directly to see what they have, like Grove they did seem to be prepared to handle low end kit like RV's others seem to stick to big stuff.

I think it goes without saying that the main distributors/manufacturers also get 2nd user equipment on occasions even if they do not explicitly list it.
 Europlacer certainly does, MyData blew very hot and cold in this area, one moment they were saying buy new feeders from us and we will virtually throw in an older serviced machine, then the next it was we prefer it if Shawline/Adopt do that for us.
