An Appoligy to Frank Boettcher


Frank,
We have a disagreement on the Unisaw. Our posts got a bit hot and for this I will take responsibility.
I did not in any way mean to cast any ill will towards Delta or the fine employees that manufactured the product.
The information in my posts are from my experience and others experiences posted here.
I did indeed read and have reposted the comments about Delta admitting responsibility for the torqueing problems concerning the trunions and IIRC this was mentioned first by Charles Self. If I do not recall correctly I also apologize to Charles Self. Never the less I was not the first to post indicating that Delta indicated that they were at fault. It was news to me when I read it and it seemed it was from a very reputable source.
Either way, whether it was the fault of the shipping company or Delta, the fact remains that you find more complaints of broken trunions here and witnessed by me about the Unisaws built in the last 10 years than other brands.
I have read and somewhat understand shipping standards and passing those standards. If the Delta factory trunion problem was fabricated by some one else and was not true I can accept that. I do however find it as a sort of "cop out" to blame a shipping company for shipping problems for as many years as this has gone on. I would seem to me that a solution would have been found long before the problem became commonly known by so many. Just because your packaging passes a certain specification does not mean that it is good enough. What were the other manufacturers doing that resulted in less damage than the Unisaws were subject too.
Having retired from the Automotive industry 10 years ago at 40 and not having to work I too enjoyed positions near the top and can fully understand restrictions put upon us by those that we answer to. I am sure you did everything possible with-in your grasp to turn out a quality product but we both know manufacturing costs have their limits and sometimes the product suffers despite our best efforts.
Anyway, I again apologize if I have insulted you in any way as that was clearly not my intention.
