Last week I ordered a Grizzly G1182Z 6" Jointer. I was disappointed when I was
informed it was on backorder for 4-6 weeks, since it
was supposed to be a Christmas present. I decided to go ahead and accept the
backorder and patiently wait it out. 5 days later I
get a call from the trucking firm wanting to schedule the delivery. What a pleasant
It's all set up and works like a charm.
I have found them to be rather conservative on shipping projections. I
ordered my 1023S cabinet saw from them a few years ago. They projected 5 to
7 days shipping. I got a call from the local trucker 36 hours after I
placed the internet order (We live only 250 miles from Springfield).
Similar on other small orders.
There was another bonus, as well. Since I was not going to receive it before
Christmas, I got to order a replacement gift (Bessey
Tradesman Clamp Assortment). I even get to keep it, since it arrived on Monday
(quick and free shipping from Amazon)
I was informed it was on backorder for 4-6 weeks, since it
itemDescription = sqlLookUp(...);
shipTime = sqlLookUp(...);
shipTimeUnits = deriveTimeUnits( shipTime );
printf( "Item %s is on backorder, projected ship time is %s %s\n",
itemDescription, "4-6", "weeks" );
Mebbe they forgot to redef debug?
