OK, so you all know the saga of the cracked mortiser base, the missing
jointer and mobile base bolts/washers.
Well, today I put together the final part of my order, the 40" G1067G lathe.
Got ready to put the bed assembly on the base, and saw a big ol' 3" crack
down the middle of the face of the bed. Paint actually bends in toward the
crack, so it was painted after it cracked, or as it was cracking, more
CS was nice, as usual. because I want to keep the parts I have already
assembled, they are only sending the bed. I will have to remove the head
stock, etc., and send the old bed back. But, because I am not sending it all
back, I have to pay for the new bed and then will be reimbursed for the old
bed when they get it and confirm the defect.
I understand many of you have had great luck with Grizzly, but I have had
next to none.
