« Part 9: Saving the top Part 10 of Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw series Part 11: Wax on, wax off... except for the off part. »

Hi Lumberjocks,

I couldn’t believe what a productive day it was today. Unfortunately, I was working on the Honey Do List not the Unisaw.

However, I did manage to buy a few more things I need. I bought some black Rust-oleum for the parts of the saw that need it. And even though I don’t care for Harbor Freight much I went there and bought a dial indicator and I am very happy with it.

I just returned the one I bought from Amazon. I don’t want to start a rank but I”m done with Amazon. They just aren’t what they used to be.


If I wanted to I could… yeah that sounded believable.


Okay, maybe I do want to start a rant.

I’ll be better in the morning. Hey maybe I should go over to HomeRefurbers.com and post about the home improvements I got done today!

Man I buy a TON of stuff from Amazon (read as 90% of the stuff I purchase) and I’ve never had an issue with them. About the only thing that I don’t buy from there is gas and groceries.

Hi ChunkyC,

Nice guitar in your avatar. Did you make that?

Yeah, I don’t usually have problems with Amazon either so maybe I’m just spoiled. They used but be stellar, now they are just good.

It shocked me when they actually sent a different item than what they had pictured… and the way it was packaged? I should have taken photos.

I specifically bought the dial indicator they showed in the photo because it came in a wooden case and it had a magnetic base similar to the one shown in the photo above. What they delivered was in a cheap plastic box and it had a goose neck magnetic base.

Also, I paid $24 for overnight shipping so I would have it Friday to use this weekend. After I placed the order I got a confirmation email telling me I would get it Tuesday or Wednesday next week. So I emailed them back and asked them to refund my shipping costs (I got an auto response telling me to go to their website and read the help pages to address my concern). Then it showed up Friday as ordered. I decided not to use it because it wasn’t what I wanted (I really wanted that darn wooden case).

Anyway, I don’t mean to sound bitter. I am very happy with the digital one I bought from Harbor Freight and it didn’t cost as much. It doesn’t have a wooden case either but I knew that when I bought it.

I have been wanting to try my hand at box building anyway.

Thanks for your comments.

Take care,

Jerry

Nope. It’s Fender Jazz Bass with 24 frets. She’s the LOML.

Now that I think on it, I have had one issue with Amazon. I purchased a mount for an antenna. The box had obviously come open during shipment. I sent an email to the company (an item not sold by Amazon) and they sent me a complete new assembly, no q’s asked. So I now I have 1-3/64 antenna mounts. lol

BTW – That table top sure does look nice.

Chunk,

I LOVE guitars. I went through a phase a few years ago buying guitars on ebay. I ended up with two natural maple body strats, and six other Epiphone guitars. I starting taking lessons and discovered I don’t have any talent.

I still love guitars but I only have 2 left now. I traded one to a guy so the little woman could get drums lessons. Now I gotta buy drums.

My brother had a 1964 Fender Jaguar plus a couple home made guitars. When he passed they were supposed to come to me but I had to wait until his wife passed. No problem, except when I finally got them the Fender had magically disappeared. I will never no what happened to it since there is no one left to ask.

Take care,
