To consider when buying used or second hand button making equipment, button makers or circle cutters:
Most button making equipment is solid metal and quite robust and repairable so buying a used button maker is a good way to go. When buying a machine make sure you use it, test it! It is best to make about 10 - 20 buttons. If those buttons are all good that machine will likely make 1000s and even 10000s of buttons!
If you can get the parts cheaply and easily it's worth looking at a used, second-hand or refurbished button maker or other button making equipment. Look for solid metal machines and don't believe anyone when they say " Takes 2" buttons, yea they're easy to get" Check first! Do not just look online assuming that those button parts will fit, call the company. Avoid Chinese Button Makers, they do not last long, parts are very expensive and difficult to find.
Same with a cutter but with a cutter, does it need blades? or other replacement parts? Also with a button maker; are the parts available, cheaply and easily. Are you sure you can get parts? Also watch out for crazy prices on parts.
