I just got a call from the Legal Department at Delta. They recieved my fax(the badly faded reciept included), and they accepted it. So I have a check, for the sum of $348, and change, in the works, being processed.

However, when asked about when they would send a team by to pickup the jumbo sized lemon, she said that “We hadn’t talked about that, but rather getting you a refund”... So my question to them is: What am I supposed to do with this now: Hold on to it, tying up space, or repair it, and have a $50 bandsaw..

Chock it up to another good PR team. Surpisingly, I guess that they do care about their customers… although my next purchase might be from another company.. after this ordeal… :(

If they are giving you a full refund I don’t think you can keep it legally unless they send you a release to do so. If they don’t contact you soon you could set it outside (it’s their problem now) or if you’re really feeling froggie, try charging them for storage space(which won’t fly!). More than likely someone will come to pick it up.

Once I recieve the check, I will call them again, asking if they are sending a grocer for this lemon…

I could care less either way. I think I am going to either upgrade to a Griz 17” or as my grandfather said, get a table saw… he thinks bandsaw’s are useless… but I think he is just jelous…. :)

But for now, I am going to sit on it… Woodworking tools do me no use when I am in the process of metal working… :)

Im not gunna set it outside, cause I dont want the rust stains on my driveway… but I might send them a bill for the storage space.. lol..

Interesting since most bandsaws are built for metal work not woodworking.

I would, without a doubt, Autumn, file a BBB complaint against them, if they did that. Particularly if they didnt reimbuse me for the freight… And if that didnt work, then Small claims works wonders… but thats a mess…

Howie, most arent actually. Two different speed ranges. And metal ones generally dont have rubber tyres..

Well, they called today, they contracted a local distributer, to arrange pickup… So I guess I wont have to worry about the space…

So I added to my XMAS list a BS.. :)

Now I think I am going to clean up my garage, So I can get back to woodworking… I will do all of my grinding/cutting/welding outside… brrr… Good news, is I also added to my list, an OA rig, so I can cut without all those nasty particles…
