Earlier this year I ordered eleven aluminum rings for my router lift. The rings are the ones that lock into the top plate of the router lift and limits the gap between the table and the bit. The ship date when I ordered them was to be July 10th, but since then they have stated that they would have to push that date back four weeks. This item they stated in their advertisement was a special run.
I am kind of disappointed in having to purchase these ring, at least three of them, because I would have thought that a company like WT would have made aluminum rings to go with the PRL to begin. I didn’t even think to ask, because the ring in the picture on the WT site “look” like well made aluminum rings. The rings that came with the lift are plastic, and not even really solid plastic at that.
So I am going to get to my questions for all of you soon. Patience please.
So I ordered eleven rings in April, and the said they would ship by July 10th, and now five weeks later and they are past their extension of three to four weeks, and I am getting more concerned by the day. I also get emails advertising for other special run tools. Like I want to spend fifty dollars for a block to hold my router bits when I am adjusting them.
(Sarcasm, in case you couldn’t hear it in my voice.)
What are your experiences with WT, are they always slow?
Is there another source for solid built aluminum rings for the PRL made by WT?
I have tried to call the number on the web page, but alas, I live on the west coast and I don’t have much time to call due to work schedule.
I was off on vacation last week and I should have called then, but I was hoping that come Monday morning, the fifth week since they informed me of the four week delay, I would have had some news. Good news like, we made what you ordered, we are charging your credit card, and here is a shipping number.
Interested in knowing your thoughts.
I will post this, and then I am off to tonight’s errands. I will try to read any reply’s later tonight.
