Our mail used to go to Salina, then get distributed, they closed the operation in Salina, now it all goes to Wichita, and mail is sometimes way late.  Sent a check for insurance, they still haven't received it, has to have been sent a month ago.
Strange stuff they are doing. Here the local mail used to get sorted, well, locally. They even had different slots in the post office for local and non local mail. You put something in the mail to someone within 50 miles and they had it the next day no problem. Now it goes 150 miles away to some big sorting facility and it takes a hilarious amount of time. Someone towards the tippy top is making dumb decisions and it sure isn't @BandsawBen 
Seriously, the check is in the mail!! ;D

I ordered a new DL timbertech swing blade in late September. Its on the way now and should be here sometime next week. They were unable to build the mill I ordered due the supply chains being broken and parts not available. So instead they built me the next size up mill with parts they had on hand for the same price. Thats what I call customer service. 
Everything seems difficult to get, takes longer, and is more expensive since the shut downs.

Insurance company finally got the check, and sent another bill for 10$ late fee.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

I ordered my LT35 from the Oakboro NC store back in November.  They told me 22-23 weeks😳.  Nothing to do but wait!
I think they should move 1st base back one foot, that would eliminate all those close plays. - John Lowenstein.

I ordered mine from Pascal Metal from https://valleeforestryequipment.com/ back in October 2020.  I just got the call this week that my mill is ready for pickup!-)))

Cant wait to go pick it up and start sawing. 

Although here in Quebec, the weather is not quite ready for sawing in the winter, so might have to wait a bit to start cutting!

Got some nice logs ready to go, Pine, Maple and Spruce.  So no shortage of logs!!
