At FAMTO we believe that a user friendly website for the buying and selling of Machine Tools is long "overdue". With the continuous rise of the internet and broadband speeds set to improve, more and more people are seeing the benefits of transacting online and the Engineering world is no different.

This website caters for everyone wanting to either buy or sell machine tools, whether you are a dealer or a private individual, FAMTO will make it easy to do.

There are 25 main categories, with each having sub categories making it simple to categorise your machine or find the exact one you want to buy. An 'Other Machine's category has also been created for any machines that don't fall into a specific category.

How it works


Follow the simple 3 step process.

Step 1: Decide what machine you need and find the category name within the 25 category options.  If you can't find the category, search the 'Other machines' category.

Step 2: Once you have found the category, you will be asked for more detail on the type of machine to narrow down the search and then you will be asked for your region.

Step 3: Click 'Search' and all relevant machines in your region will be displayed. If there are no matches in your region, then go back and view what is available within other regions too.

An example of how it works.

If you want to look for a specific machine i.e. A CENTER LATHE.

Click on Lathe Category and then Click on "TYPE"  and select "CENTER"



Click "SEARCH" and see what is available in your area.

If nothing is available in your area, go back and Click" LATHE" again then" Center" and view all available Lathes in South Africa.

It`s the same for all categories.
