Ordered the X5 6" Delta jointer. Came damaged, a couple small dents in the edge of the outfeed table, but very lapable if that's a word. Called, they sent a new one. Three weeks go by and they email me to say I need to schedule a return for the damaged one. Damn, I could have sold it.
Three days ago the guy comes to get it. I had fully assembled it, but took the beds/cutterhead/fence assembly off of the base to facilitate movement and loading. He says he's only taking the top, and I can keep the base with the motor. He then, literally, dumps the think on the back of the truck like a piece of junk. I ask him what's going to happen to it, and he says they'll probably just throw it out. Wow.
Soooo....any ideas on what I can use a 1hp motor mounted in the jointer base? And what's the deal with Amazon? I suppose I should have asked to keep it, and sent a photo of the damage along or something. What a waste.
