Topic tags/keywords: tip router

Last week, I ordered a profile router bit and corresponding setup block from MLCS for a cabinet project I am building.

When the arrived yesterday, I discovered they had shipped me the wrong setup block (there was a one-digit difference in the part number, which, in my book, is an honest mistake), so last night I sent them an email describing the problem.

This morning, I got a response from Denise @ MLCS apologizing for the error. She advised they are shipping the correct part today and that there was no need for me to return the one they sent in error.

Over the last couple of years, I have contacted them a couple of times and I cannot say enough about the fine customer service I have received from this company.

If this were a review, I would give them 5 stars!

Great products.
Great customer service.

They’ll never make it ;-)

My track record with them has been great: excellent products and quick shipping. No chance to test their customer service, yet, but … good to know it’s there, if I ever need it !

2 years ago, I had an MLCS 1/4” straight bit that I could not get to release from the collet in one of my PC 690’s.

There was no apparent problem with the shank on the bit, but I decided to contact them anyway. They suggested the problem may be the shank on the bit, and sent out a replacement (which worked just fine) ... no questions asked.

They solved my problem, and made me a happy camper.

Gerry, thanks for posting this. I was just grumbling last night to myself because a bit set I had ordered from them was defective out of the box. I chalked it up to lesson learned, you get what you pay for, with no intention of contacting them. But I really ought to give them a chance to make it right.

I urge you to contact them. I’ve never been disappointed in their customer service.

Yep, agree with all positive comments. Great products, top service. And rock bottom prices. Usually you get to pick one, or at most two of these attributes, but never all three. I don’t understand their business model, but I dig it.
