So I ordered a new dust collector system from Festool. It is expensive as heck but Eagle America gives me a good deal on it plus free shipping. I have been ready all day to open the package and use it first thing today when I got home and what did I find? The dust collector is all banged up and the frame was broken from the rough handling.
I couldn’t believe it. I look again at how it is packed and it is basically in a corrugate box but no styrofoam, or anything to help protect it. I thought that was stupid whoever thought this packaging would work. So now to return it. It’s dissappointing that mail and couriers are rough on packages but more so from the people that ship them when they don’t think that this is going to happen.
ps. I had to think of a catchy title so you would read thru my rant. I hope you don’t hold that against me
