I am a very big fan of Axminster Power Tools.I think their service and after sales are second to none but today I am very disappointed.I tried to order a new lathe an AW146USW just to be told they are out of stock and are not expected until the middle or end of July.
Either they have been very lucky with lots of orders or their ordering from the manufacturer needs some attention.
The woman on the telephone told me it was the manufacturers fault if that is the case maybe they should review their manufacturer.
The problem I have is that I do not know of another lathe with the same spec for the same money.
I have swallowed my pride and ordered one apparently they have orders for ten and they have ordered thirty from the manufacturer.
