Topic tags/keywords: question

Guys, I’m having a way less than satisfying experience buying some products from Eddie Castelin at Big Guy Productions. I bought the Blue II package and expected the bars to look like all the others pictured on that page. The others have recesses cut into them for the carbide cutters, am I unreasonable to expect that the “bars” I bought in the package match the others pictured??? He has offered to refund my money but no mention about it getting fixed on the webpage or even any understanding for my being unsatisfied.

Pat, I can see where you might expect them to be notched, but it doesn’t say so in the description, and there is no photo with that package showing them notched. I think it’s fair of him to offer you a refund. I don’t think there is necessarily anything that needs to be “fixed” on the webpage, although I would agree that he should probably include a photo of exactly what the customer is going to get, just so there will be no confusion.

Charlie, if for no other reason than to avoid this same scenario in the future he should make the changes. I also got square carbide cutters ans now have no way to register them squarely. Thanks for your thoughts, Pat

Just in my fairly limited turning experience, applying the cutter to the spinning workpiece is a matter of feel anyway. As long as the cutter is installed roughly eyeball-square to the bar, I don’t think precision is really important because the hand controlling the handle is automatically going to make the necessary adjustment. Maybe someone else will weigh in here on that issue.
