I’m really curious as to whether this will be honored.

I’ll let you know… just ordered it with some gift cards I had on file.

Botanist – Thanks for the link!

The seller name is Faber Surplus Manuals. Their storefront only shows them as having manuals. Hopefully the return process is not that difficult to get your gift card $ back

The store name was my biggest concern too. If all you get is a manual, I can’t imagine Amazon wouldn’t refund your purchase. But I’d take a screen shot of exactly what’s displayed right now, just in case.

I saw that, and had a chat with Amazon before I ordered it. They said that if only the manual is delivered, they will refund 100% of my money, including shipping immediately.

They misspelled their own name too. LOL Might be worth a shot though. If I had room, I would order it just because I am an addict.

well they are all gone, but i am going to guess all you will be getting is a manual. For those who order let us know if you got lucky and actually got the jointer. It was out of production model and there is a newer model.

Welp, that explains why it’s $20. Probably worth more as scrap :-).

Sounds pretty suspect to me to, but obviously a few people were willing to take a chance as they’re all gone. I was looking for a discharge hose for my trash pump and came across a suction hose that was normally $389 and for some reason priced at $10.84 (with free shipping). I figured it was a mistake and I would later be notified, much to my surprise I received a shipping confirmation less than a week later and it arrive via UPS. The free shipping really surprised me as it was 115lb.

oh well, it was worth a try

Hello, I am writing you concerning your recent order from me concerning the Jet Jointer. An error in the Amazon system changed my offering title from “Jet JJ-6CSX Woodworking Jointer Owners Manual” to “JET 708457K JJ-6CSX 6-Inch 1-HP Jointer, 115/230-Volt 1-Phase”. It also changed the image shown to the above Jet jointer instead of the image of the owners manual that I supplied. On top of that Amazon used the standard listing for the Jet Jointer instead of the description of the manual I was selling. The Amazon computers try to match an new listing to what Amazon has on file, and in this case it thought that my manual I sell was actually the jointer itself. I apologize for the mixup. I don’t sell any equipment, only the manuals to the equipment. I have initiated a cancel order request through Amazon and any payment you have made will be refunded.
Thank you,
Eugene Faber

You should periodically, like once every month or so, just send the guy an e-mail and inform him that you still have not received your jointer.

I asked him if Amazon “magically” charges $125 for shipping as well….

Have your say...
