Pro Machine Tools website seems to have been out of action each time I've tried to use it lately, displaying a constant "temporarily under maintenance" message. Anyone else had any luck getting on to the site?

Thanks

Terry

P.S. __ It states under maintenance, so it may be the same page that your were looking at

I jumped to that one via the ebay store :

its an old site - not updated to https but many browsers now require https rather than http thus tend to hang
Alter your preferences to allow http

Thanks all. The one I have been trying is https://www.emcomachinetools.co.uk and. The site is current so I'm certain it's not a security cert issue or url issue, but they are displaying the under maintenance message, so just wondered if anyone knows any more as it's been that way for a while now. I'll try ringing them again to see what the issue is.

Hi Terry,

I've been trying to get on their website too and been having the same problems. I'm wondering if they've gone out of business, so if you have got hold of them on the phone please let me know.

Thanks,

Joel

I have phoned them several times but just get answerphone. Also went to the ebay link posted above and it just quotes same number and points back to the main website. Have sent a message via ebay contact seller to see if they respond. Will report back if I hear anything more.

I contacted Pro Machine Tools Ltd through their Ebay account and they are still trading but are struggling to get parts from the EU which is why their website has been down.
