I recently moved into a new house, over the last couple weeks I built up
so much flat pack from various places it's untrue. Anyway, two weeks ago
I ordered a 'Toronto' corner desk unit from the MFI, it was delivered
today after a wait of 2 weeks.
I have never in my life attempted to build so an inferior product. It
wasn't exactly cheap at £170 either. The problem is the clam screws just
do not lock onto the clam legs, if you think you've got them locked, a
simple wiggle of the wood will have them come lose again. It's amazingly
hard to believe actually, that something go be so bad.
Anyway, after a couple hours messing around with this POS, half of the
panel are no screwed because tightening the clams split the wood are the
Also, at one point I did lose my tempter(you would have too) and smashed
a couple panels. Looking back now this was probably bad idea but it was
unavoidable at the time because I was so angry.
I tried calling the helpline on the instructions, no answer. I'm now
going to call MFI....what exactly are my options? if I accept another
desk, I will request someone else build it. The desk I got now is
completely screwed, it's scrap basically. Are they going to want to
check it out?
What would you do?
