Re: Makita Does It Again


Another thread about the Makita cordless planer not having a guide fence.
Yet the model they sell in UK has the guide fence.
The US planer has the hole under the height adjustment dial where the guide fence goes, just they don't give a guide fence.

I thought you were a Grex man?
I read Grex was coming out with a nailer that used plain old AAA batteries.

I wonder if they bought a license from paslode to market those outside the US. It even has the stupid flashing led that runs the battery dead.

I came across the part numbers for a bevel guide and a fence. Forgot to write them down and now I will have to search for them again.
I think I found them on Amazon. uk site.

Re: Makita Does It Again


Ordered this from Amamzon.uk :www.makitauk.com/products/front/?model=GF600SE

I hate Amazon.
I placed the order last week. Shipping was $30 for 10 days and $35 for 2nd day. So naturally paid an extra $5.
At the time of order it said delivery Tues.
Next day it said delivery Mon. I thought great!
Monday comes and goes, nothing.
Take the tracking number and check it on DHL's site and it says the thing is in Madrid.
Everyday I check and Amazon keeps pushing the delivery date back and DHL doesn't change. Still in Madrid.


By Friday I contact Amazon and they agree to refund my shipping charge for the hassle and tell me I will have it this Tues.

Sat. morning email from Amazon...order cancelled and refunded

I get a hold of Amazon again. They tell me DHL sent it back to them and it could have been damaged by DHL or DHL messaed up the shipping label and couldn't read it. They told me re-order so I did.
Now it says "Delivery by Thurs."

We shall see. Fingers crossed.

A thought. Amazon holds on items to increase shipping times. In Vancouver, Amazon prime just means they don't hold on to it for week before shipping.
