I just purchased a good new lathe that cost me a lot of money. I dont want to disclose the name at this time because i dont want to bash anyones product. I took a lot of time and care to transport the lathe and it also cost me a lot of money and time to transport the machine. When I arrived home I put it in my shop and took it out of the crate. I found two spots of rust with pitting on the lathe ways approx. two inches long about a foot up from the head stock. I have waited almost two weeks to get an answer from the manufacturer about the problem. I sent them pictures and they want to know if I would take compensation for the rust damage. Well today I figured I would put power to the lathe and theses are the issues I found 1. The foot brake was off the motor pulley 2. A safety switch was mounted wrong, thus causing the machine not to work ( i fixed this issue) 3. The lead screw is not working. 4. The half nut lever and feed screw lever are not working properly. They are bind real hard and are hard to move. 5. The spindle rotation lever was out of adjustment, Thus causing the machine not to work ( i fixed this problem) 6. The gear box sometimes jumps out of gear. I think i should get another machine delivered to my shop at no cost. They are calling me tomo. to discuss the issues. What would you all do?
