Shipping

How long will I have to wait to receive an item that I order?

 If the item is in stock and not pre-ordered by others, then it will go out either that day or the next business day via UPS or USPS, whichever is cheaper.  It will take between 2 and 4 business days to reach you depending on how far you live from South Carolina.

Where are you located and is English your native language?

Piedmont, South Carolina, USA and yes, English is our native tongue.  Pour les francophones, je suis aussi capable de communiquer en francais.

Misc

Why do S.T.A.T.E.S. prices appear to be higher than Tech Studio prices on their website?

The prices at S.T.A.T.E.S. include the cost of shipping from Russia.  The advertised prices on the Tech Studio site do not include shipping which is $100 for the K02 Wranglerstar kit and similarly $30 to $50 for even the smallest accessory.  Furthermore, your bank will likely charge an additional 3% foreign bank transaction fee if purchased from them.  Finally, with S.T.A.T.E.S. your card is not charged until your item ships to you.

Why doesn't your catalog have silicon carbide stones?

Because the abrasive holder of the K02/K03 accepts a wide range of stones from 5 3/4 inches to 7 3/4 inches that are 1 inch wide, you have many sources other than us to purchase your stones.  Because the holder accepts 90 degree stones as well as 45 degree backer blanks, you can save money by using unmounted stones.  If you choose to use unmounted stones, remember to put protective tape on the steel support beam beneath the stone to prevent excessive wear of the holder.

Purchasing

Why should I buy accessories from S.T.A.T.E.S.?

We make bulk purchases of accessories and spread the $100 shipping cost from Russia across the quantity.  We ship via UPS or USPS the next business day.  You can save money.  For example, a reinforced spring for a K02 single clamp would cost $8 + $30 to $50 from Tech Studio and take 1 month to arrive at your home.  With us, it would cost $9 + $2 first class US mail and arrive in a few days.

If I buy a system directly from Tech Studio how do I get support?

Please contact Tech Studio via e-mail with your support needs.

Do you sell to Canada and Australia?

Yes, if the customer agrees to fill out all the customs paperwork and pays for shipping.  Shipping via UPS costs about $50 for Canada and $115 for Australia.
