You aren’t alone. I’m having the same issue with the AFS1000 at my local store. Just so happens, I was in the store the other day and the director of sales or VP of sales from Jet was there. I happen to express my displeasure at the length of the back order and he explained that all the dealers had cut back in their demand and then, out of the blue, in December/January demand shot back up (didn’t help that they’ve had 2-3 sales since then too). With that increased demand they had to restart their suppliers to get the materials back into their production line and then get it on the water to the US.

Sounded somewhat reasonable, but a little suspect too. I would check with your local retailer to see EXACTLY when they ordered it. If they waited a couple of weeks or more to actually order it then you might have been put farther back in line for the back order and not gotten in on the supposed first shipment that made it to their factory in the US from the factory in China (or where ever it came from).

Good luck! I’m crossing my fingers I’ll see mine in the next few weeks. (Did I really save anything buying it on sale and waiting 2 months for it?)
