on october 5th i ordered a whole new set of woodworking tools at a small dealer who was doing extra conditions for an “open door day”.
so i ordered a Robland 4hp tablesaw-shaper combo : http://www.robland.us/gb/nxtz
a Robland 4hp Jointer-planer: http://www.robland.us/gb/planer-thicknesser-xsdb310
a jet square mortising dril 701 to replace the mortising attachement on my current jointer-planer.
the standard conditions were: free 2 hp Robland dust extractor, 2 sawblades, jointer knives, and a shaper rabbet tool. i just managed to negotiate on top of that an extra 16mm drill bit for the Jet (value about €60!)
now the man told me i would have the tools in 3 to 4 weeks, it has been 8 weeks already! i have been calling for the past 5 weeks and get about the same answer; maybe this week, if not next week.
my question is, should i ask for something? or is it normal?
and to make things worse i already promised my current machines to someone for almost the price i bought them. i can’t let them go as long as i haven’t got mine. so this person has been waiting aswell for 5 weeks now. it doesn’t make me feel comfortable to keep him on the line that way.
