When I called about the 2 degrees of backlash in the "no backlash 4th axis" he actually said "I feel sorry for you" to me on the phone.

Sounds like a great company to deal with, sadly they are plenty of them about and the internet makes it easy, if they get to much bad press they just rename themselves, get a new website and start again until their name gets too bad from burning customers.

I really hate hearing about people getting scammed. Unfortunately it happens all too often. I had a guy call me the other day that bought an imported 'high speed' spindle and it worked fine until you tried to get it to actually go to its highest advertised speed, it promptly burned up. He called the outfit that sells it and got the response, "why you want to go so fast?"

It sucks all the way around, for the guy who got scammed, for the guys at Mach, and for the guys running legit business who lost a sale to the scammers.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

Well said.

Thanks everyone,
Yes it does suck to get ripped for 10k, but it's not all bad, there are too many things to list why this machine sucks but what does not suck is the frame and the table. At its base it is a really solid machine that I would buy again, just without the control box, fourth axis, wiring, computer or the extended warranty. After weeks of replacing all of the wiring, the speed controller, adding a cooling fan, and purchasing a Mach license it is running great. Thanks to Hood and to everybody for the much needed and appreciated help.

Strange part is the cabinet it comes with is really nice and very cheap, I actually bough another one.
