Don't you love having to fix something, out of the box, that you bought,
I bought a dovetail jig from MLCS.
I open it up and start to assemble it and there are problems, right off
the bat. You can see in the following pictures that half of the six
bolts on it are bent.
What you can't see is that the template brackets were also bent and the
jig body was out of square. (The jig body holds the stock together at
Of course, they offered to replace it, but I have to ship it back to
them and wait for them to get it, until they send another one back. So,
I have to *pay*
to ship something back and wait a couple more weeks.
Not gonna do it. I told MLCS to make a record of our conversation and
that I was going to see if I could bend the parts back without them
breaking. Those pictures are for the before... for the record.
That's what I did, I bent them back and I'll see what happens tomorrow.
Just venting, I guess.
I get frustrated by having to repair or re-engineer things I buy, new,
just to get them to operate properly. This seems to happen a lot lately.
