Eventually, when I have the $500 it costs to register... I will. Right now, I don't have $500 to pay them for the "privilege" of spending another $100 on blades.I guess I don't understand why you can't purchase them from Wizard directly. I didn't buy my first machine (5000 used) from them, but they've always treated me as if I did. Registering with them should be a quick process, and it really doesn't oblige you to anything.
Thanks for the answer. I knew they had changed some policies, like access to tech support, but I didn't know about a fee for registering a used machine.Eventually, when I have the $500 it costs to register... I will.

Unfortunately, yes. And I get it, I guess. Just want to be up and running making some money so that $500 is a lot easier to come up withThanks for the answer. I knew they had changed some policies, like access to tech support, but I didn't know about a fee for registering a used machine.
Thanks for the reply! One local framer said no because he'd be helping his competition. There are a few others I could try. Steve facilitated the purchase of my machine, and I didn't even think of that.Couldn't you just contact a shop in your area that has a Wizard 8000 with an account and make an offer to them when they order their blades to order more blades including enough blades for you and you will pay the shipping for the whole order or just pay the local shop a little extra?
Not every shop is on the Grumble and you may have a number of local shops that could help you if you contact them directly.

This! I can't stand companies that make you pay a retainer just so that you can buy more of their product. It just feels wrong.Eventually, when I have the $500 it costs to register... I will. Right now, I don't have $500 to pay them for the "privilege" of spending another $100 on blades.
Yeah, "Helping the competition"...."Helping the competition" What a complete ass-hat. Good luck in life fella!
Hoping you got your problem sorted. I unfortunately don't have any =(
I'm glad you got your blades, not so happy with Wizard, though.Yes, I ended up registering with Wizard. Thanks!
You're simply a good person who understands business relationships.Yeah, "Helping the competition"....
We let 3 other shops come in and use our Wizard 9000 and our dry mount presses from time to time.(there must be something wrong with us..)

None of the above, unless you purchase a monthly "support plan" which is $75/month. As I'm just starting out and this is a side job/hobby, I simply can't do that.I realize that we have slipped off-topic, but is Wizard giving you any more than the privilege of buying consumables for that fee? Tech support? Software updates?
And....when I started, there were 8 shops in my town that I could walk to and one that I had to drive to because it was 3 miles away and in the hills. Only one was willing to help me at all. Guess which one is still in business? I always jump at the chance to help any framer. It is FUN, and at worst it is banking a favor I may need in the future.
