When I called up the page it displayed the top banner but none of the drop downs worked. I'll check it again.

and if business is booming and - with the bunch of 'custom' ideas listed - it's entirely possible the company chooses not to bog their production down with a highly specialized build.

sounds to me like your requirements - especially for the electrical set up - is something they do not have on hand, know nothing about, can't build - hence they can't run/test the mill in the shop.

have you thought about ordering it powered ala "standard" and doing the conversion yourself? you could always sell off the internal combustion engine . .

There's nothing worse to a company than losing a customer and not understanding why.

I think you'd actually be doing the Cooks a favor by contacting them. And if I was about to lose $6,000 I'd jump in my pickup and go for a drive...

Once, Saint Teresa of Calcutta took a starving child into market and asked the owner if he'd be willing to give the child some food. He spit on her. She replied, "Thank you for that gift for me. Now, perhaps something for the child?"

You have truly been blessed with awareness and the joy of the Holy Spirit. However, you've also been wronged. It would not be un-Christian to bring the matter up to the owners. Perhaps they can even help you out.

I had a thought. Get a friend to call them and pretend to ask about maybe ordering a mill to the specifications you had and see what they say. If they backpedal they might say why that isn't on the menu.

have you thought about ordering it powered ala "standard" and doing the conversion yourself? you could always sell off the internal combustion engine . . YES, This was all I wanted to talk with the owners about....what was their issue with their options they promised me AND HOW we could negotiate this back into a working order....I have a workable solution BUT Neither OWNER will return a call OR email....it's really sad...I can work around the hieght issue BUT NOT without a sawmill !!!

I think you'd actually be doing the Cooks a favor by contacting them. I've tried NUMEROUS times via phone and email And if I was about to lose $6,000 I'd jump in my pickup and go for a drive... I've tried to give them amble time to check all their resources IF that's what their doing BUT I think either someone is blocking or created a smoke screen. I just don't understand why one of the owners hasn't returned a reply

You have truly been blessed with awareness and the joy of the Holy Spirit.THANKS However, you've also been wronged. It would not be un-Christian to bring the matter up to the owners. Perhaps they can even help you out.
Time will tell soon...we're in the holiday season and it's tough to tell IF it's they're busy with family or ignoring me...It's in the Lord's Hands as to what doors/people will be opened or closed, I ONLY seek the Wisdom to know when to walk through them correctly...Again Thanks All

Have a Blessed and Prosperous day in Jesus's Awesome Love, Tim

Road trip

I made the road trip last night/morning. I won't go into detail....It was a surprise visit. I want to thank the owner Tim for speaking with me. Bottom line is we got this worked out and a gas mill has been purchased.

Thanks all.

Good deal. So they just didn't like the electric motor huh. You could always put an electric motor on it and keep the gas motor for a backup or sell it.

You just described Enron. All the smiling managers kept saying “buy more stock!”

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
