You guys hyped up this Iturra Design catalog for bandsaw accessories.
I called a few weeks ago, spoke to a human, asked for a catalog and they
took my name and address.
Nothing in the mail.
Is this just some dude in his garage, smokin weed all day or what? :-)

No, don't call them a second time. I did that, asked the gal to check if it
was mailed. She took my name and address and promised to look. A couple of
weeks later, I and got two catalogs in the mail on the same day.
I just checked the google archives because I recalled someone on this
group could net get through. It was mike-why , back in March (I
know, not you). Did you request your catalogue prior to that time ?
I bought a lot of stuff from Louis and he's very good about getting
orders and catalog requests out. I hope all is well with him and that
he just made a mistake with your request. Give him another holler,
maybe he's just very busy.

for the new edition from the printer?)

It took awhile for me to get one as well. More than a month I think.
Probably he prints up x copies as he gets requests (figure it's
a cost saving) and then mails.
No doubt, it's worth the wait. Be patient and if/when you
call, be nice!
I just got some very good advice from Louis at Iturra about choosing the right
pulleys for my upgrade of my 14" delta band saw with a 3hp Baldor. I'm psyched!
BTW my final speed will be 4600 fpm, up from the standard 3000 fpm.
More speed AND more HP. I don't know what he would say if more HP were
not an option. But I con't see the advantage of more torque. You can
push the wood HARDER into the blade before it slows down, but I can't
see that you could cut any faster, except with more power.
If you get a definitive answer on this, though, please post it, since
I have the same issue. I really don';t want to spring for a new motor.

I just had a very disappointing phone conversation with someone at Iturra D

meone there who couldn't tell me what their website address was or where to
go to download the catalogue. He said that one way to get the catalogue wa
s to place an order, but when I informed him that "it was hard to order som

stions. Not sure how they do much business with such great customer service

Louis has never been much interested in volume; the established
technique is to call and talk with him directly about your problem and
he'll tell you what you need to resolve it.
The "catalog" has been scanned and posted online; it actually has very
few Iturra Design products in it--it consists mostly of other
information or vendors' products for resale--Carter, Lenox, Incra, etc.,
that are pretty bandsaw-specific, but it also has Boeshield, Starrett,
etc., as well.
The last link I have to a scanned version is from 2010 at
But, in general, if you want something from Iturra, basically it'll be
either thrust bearings/blocks, tension springs or the like or it'll be a
recommendation for a specific blade for a purpose from Lenox which can
be obtained elsewhere. I don't know how he makes a living; I suspect
this is simply a hobby, mostly, to support his penchant for playing w/
