Hi All,

I wonder if anyone else has had dealings with JB Cutting

They seem to suggest that they supply British made Lathe cutting tools.

Have placed an order, they have taken my money,,,,No goods received and no reply to emails sent.

Staring to get a little concerned. Order placed 11th Oct no contact or goods since!

Have bought plenty off them direct at Rufforth Auto jumble over the years, they had a stall there once a month. ( Maybe still do, ive not been in a while)

Very nice people, used to be an older couple, but think the kids took over. Always helpful, and no complaints about their wares or prices from me.

Have you tried phoning them ?

Likely busy packing and traveling to Midlands show where they were today. I've not had problems with them mail order or bought from shows

I ordered four inserts on October 10 and they arrived the following day.It wasn't my first order and I hope it won't be my last.

I've had nothing but exemplary service from them...All orders from them fulfilled without issue, but....then..

I ordered a parting tool for my big lathe and decided it wasnt suitable, called them and they swapped it out no quibble...

The bits I bought from them today, at Warwick, did not particularly claim to be made in Britain. One item had Mitsubishi plastered over it - well at least the packaging did.

So far a satisfied customer, but clearly yet to try them out.

‘Seem to suggest’, to me is a bit ‘woolly’ to say the least.  Maybe read again, whatever you think you read, and be a little more certain?

They where at Stafford classic bike show over the weekend and from Jason's post at the Midlands show as well. Sounds like they have been a bit stretched for time.

+1 for good service from JB.

Both the older couple (no insult intended!!) were on duty today on their stall at the Midlands Show so no apparent problems. JB has been a fixture at ME and similar shows for some years and appear to have many regular and satisfied customers, including myself.

+1 for giving them a ring after the show finishes on Sunday to sort what is hopefully a minor hiccup.

Hi All,

So does anyone have a phone number for them as nothing listed on Website. As they they were ordered on the 11th October its been 7 days without any news!!!

Their phone number is on the website, you need to scroll down and click 'contact information':

JB have a very good reputation, but they will be at the Midlands show all weekend and they may be planning for Monday off. I'm 100% sure they aren't the sort to take your money and do a runner.

It may be something has gone astray, it can happen to anyone, but I'm sure if you email or phone on Tuesday they will get back to you.

Can only concur with others, +1 for JB cutting tools. Have bought from them at last years Doncaster ME show & via post over the years, never had any probs with them. Give them a call after this weeks show, I'm sure there will have been a delay due to show preparation or a simple oversight.

Absolute Beginner :

I simply can't accept that there are grounds for believing J B Tools are messing you about, it's not credible. I've got no connection with them other than as a satisfied customer of many years standing, and have always found Jenny and her husband absolutely delightful to deal with. This is a simple oversight or an email has got lost (it happens!).

Can I suggest someone brings this to the attention of Jenny tomorrow at the show - I know she'll want to sort it urgently. I'd do it myself but I'm not planning to go 'til Sunday.

Can't speak highly enough of them.

As an impartial observer ... I've just seen this on the homepage:


It's difficult to read any ambiguity into that.

I was just going to point that out , you beat me to it. It may, just possibly, be a definite, even a positive, statement.


At the bottom of every "page" of the website there is a row of items. This includes 'Contact information' - click on that and you can email, phone, or write to them.

You will please notice it makes no mention of where the inserts are made, only tools, bars, blades etc.

As a random check, I selected this: **LINK**

I then did as suggested, and 'looked out for the logo'

... at the bottom of the page I found a teeny little Union Flag

dont know Does that qualify as 'the logo' or must we look only for the bigger one, with the text ?

They definitely won't be able to answer the phone before Monday, since they're at the Midlands show. They really are a 'small family' firm, with Jenny and hubby being nearly all of it. They'll get back to you. Just give them time to get past the show.

No relationship to them, but did pick up a few more sharp pointy things from them and have a nice chat today!
