Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

I've been informed that they'll be reversing the charge to my cc. Time will tell.

For what it's worth, I genuinely believe (based on what I've read and my first-hand correspondence) that they want to do right by hobbyists, it just hasn't gone well.

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

Update to my ongoing saga: To recap what I wrote earlier: After receiving my shipment, it was missing a length of 4040. I contacted Misumi, they shipped out a new one. Shipping was free, but I still had to eat the customs charge. Then a couple of days later they charged my cc for the missing part. A...

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

When I first started tracking my original package through UPS, it gave a weight of (don't recall exactly but something like) 1.5 lbs. Eventually the correct weight for each separate package (there were 4 altogether) were shown after a few days. Maybe that's the case with yours, as well.

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

I'll update my ongoing saga. Though let me preface this by saying that support has been responsive throughout, so I expect a (somewhat) happy ending. After receiving my order, I noticed that I was missing 1 length of 1350mm 4040. Contacted them, they said they'd replace it. Awesome, but I also wante...

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

Well, I have the original Shapeoko, and its cutting area is a lot more limited than the SO2. Also, I really want to try my hand at making an electric guitar, the stock shapeoko wasn't going to cut it.

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

I'm expanding my machine to accomodate a 2'x4' spoil board (more or less), so I ordered for a 1350mm x 750mm footprint: HSF5-4040 (1350mm) X 2 HSF5-4060 (750mm) X 1 HSF5-2040 (1350mm) X 2 HSF5-2040 (750mm) X 6 HPTSD5 (2x2 metal plate) X 8 I'm following a design similar to the one proposed by samc99u...

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

I got the invoice tonight. Shipping/freight was 77.77, taxes 29 and change. Though that means I was taxed on both the shipping and the cost of the parts (before discount).

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

Hmm, sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, rcouto. [Chris: my advice is to send a message through their inquiry system on the website.] On my end, things seem to be going well. I've received a UPS tracking number for my missing part and Misumi has confirmed in writing that I won't be charged ...

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

No problem. I filled out an inquiry form on the website and Samantha got back to me letting me know she'd send the missing piece asap. Just waiting on a confirmation number.
