I called woodcraft last Friday as it was 3 weeks after the order was to be put in for the new base. The update at that point was no update…. The woodcraft manager said he was looing into what the base was not shipped with the stock order. Well today (4 weeks after purchase and report of the issue) the manager at woodcaft calls me a few min. ago…. the reason for the delay is…. the base is on backorder until sometime in July….. While I know this is not the fault of Woodcraft but I am frustraited beyond belief….. having the base and the body of the bandsaw in the floor of my tiny shop has really prevented me from starting any real projects and it has really discoraged me from this new hobbie I have chosen to pick up….
Woodcraft has said they wold take the saw back completely if I wanted or I could wait it out until the base comes in. I am not sure what I would like to do… I really do like the Bandsaw I bought but at this point 10 days has turned into 4 weeks and now is being put off to sometime next month.. I am kind of starting to wonder if this badnsaw will ever come in and be usable….
So I am really debaiting taking the whole saw back and picking out a saw that is in stock so I can get to making some saw dust… What would you guys do????
