Got to AML and saw a large crate with Grizzly Industrial on it and it had to be the one. I noticed that it was too large and then looked at the model number on the end of the box and saw that it was a combo mill/16.5"x31" lathe and not what I had ordered. But it had my name on it so having shelled out more than a few dollars up to this point I took it home since AML had nothing to do with it, so it wasn't their burden. Went to call Grizzly and got their voicemail saying that they knew about the error last week but couldn't stop it in time to keep it off the barge and so they just waited till it got here to make sure it was as wrong as they thought it was. It would have been nice had they informed me earlier and would have saved me showing the strange tourist around town today.
I had wondered why the freight was so much more than I was quoted and it was much larger then I was expecting, but luckily a 15 passenger van is pretty big and I had pulled the two rear seats out which makes it a 8 passenger van with a 6'+ bed inside rated for several tons. So I got to haul the thing back and send it on it's way back South for a lovely ride to Seattle.
Still waiting to see if Grizzly makes it all right. I really hope they don't send me the mill that the University of California got without inspecting it for shipping damage after that long strange trip. You'd think they would send a new mill out ASAP with apologies.
So my excitement continues for a while I guess.
update: new mill on it's way with apologies.
