Nightmare

Last night I woke up, unable to sleep for the excitement.

So I went down stairs and unpacked the box and checked the stuff off the list.  Of course, their manual is abysmal, so it is hard to tell exactly what they are talking about, but I felt confident I had everything.

You know, I am just too angry to write anything more tonight.  I am nine hours into deciphering their manual and almost done, when the tension release lever broke.  I was trying to get it into the position that the picture showed and it the connection piece snapped in too.

It isn’t Jeff’s fault.  He doesn’t want to be a pain in the butt to install.  I blame the incredibly stupid people at Powermatic, who couldn’t write a manual to save their lives.  They sicken me.

I am seething, but I take solace in knowing that when I am done, after getting a replacement part, I can tell my tale in every forum on the planet!

while you are waiting for the new part you now have time to go throught all the instructions etc until you understand compleatly.

See #1 of yesterdays comment ! Iguess I left out the part about not looking at the pictures. (note that part 1 came before part 2. which is where you open the box)

My guess is PM will replace the part for free. I'm under the impression that their customer service is right up there with the tools they make. I hope things go better for you today.

Don't sweat it too much.

I sheered the pin that connects the arm to the assembly when I added the riser block to my PM14BS. Putting the puzzle back together isn't too hard, but I will give you this advice: Make sure you take everything apart and know how many parts you need to replace. I had to make two separate orders, because I didn't know there was more than just the pin itself I needed to replace.
