I mentioned that I had ordered ther G1029Z and a couple of you were
interested in how well it gets delivered, so:
Aug 11 - Wed evening, Ordered collector online.
Aug 13 - 9:30 AM Confirmation email received that order was
shipped from Springfield, Mo. Estimated delivery August 18. Shipped by
Overnite. Also receive another confirmation email of 2 "Free Items for the
1029". I expected the seperator lid but have no idea what the second item
is, perhaps the .3 micron bag is being shipped separately. Oh, and a
catalogue was shipped.
Must not have been in stock in Springfield. We live about 250 to 300 miles
West of Springfield. I ordered my 1023s cabinet saw via their web page one
evening and 36 hours later I got a call to pick it up at the local trucking
depot. Been pretty happy with them.
Regarding the freebe, do the offer a "gift" with that size of purchase?
When I bout the saw they offered a list of items from which you could select
up to a value - I think it was $50 for a $800 purchase.
August 13 - ~2:30 Received a voicemail from local Overnite terminal here in
central Virginia stating that they carrier had picked up the shipment and
expected receipt on Wednesday, Aug 18 and wanted to make arrangements for
delivery. (What a great service).
August 16 - ~12:00 noon Received a phone call from Overnite wanting to
arrange a delivery time. I ask if they had it at their terminal and the
lady said she did. I was looking for an excuse to drive over to the valley
(Waynesboro, VA) anyway, so drove over and picked it up.
And so, not counting the order day since I ordered online late at night, it
took FOUR and one half days, two of which were weekend days, from filling
the order in Springfield , Mo. to deliver in Waynesboro, Virginia. I think
that's pretty remarkable.
I assembled the collector this afternoon. Took about an hour. Excellent
workmanship. Only fault I have is the two posts that hold the cyclone are
pretty flimsy. Too bad they didn't add a third leg to make it more stable.
