    Same thing happened to me. I waited 43 days before cancelling my order. I kept getting what I would call excuses. I finally grew tired of waiting. I did receive a full quick refund though.

    These guys got me my Mill in a week.

    I think I got mine from Baileys and it was only days. Being on the East Coast, when I order something out West, it usually goes out the same day. I certainly didn't have to wait for them to make it, Joe.

    At least yours has paint left on it. They must have packed mine while the paint was still wet. Had a bunch of it on the inside of the box!

    Tighten the depth bolts well. Check them after your first few cuts.

    I bought my mill from them. It was on eBay so I messaged them and he said he had one already made in the size I wanted so I ordered it and it took over a month for him to even ship it being already made and didn’t have to make it. And the jigs that bolt to the bar aren’t square you can see at first glance and was told oh it’ll cut just fine lol

    Lololol it never ends with them. He clearly didn't have one made already. You get what you lay for ladies and gents.

    I would miss not having the channel in the rails. Makes width adjustments easy.
    Also, It was very easy to attach a winch into that channel with simple carriage bolts.
    I like the look of the rectangular tube for the posts on this Mill ^^^ Looks super strong.
    It sure looks much "stockier" than the Granberg, ... does it need to be?
    These things are heavy enough!

    Just a quick FYI, I ordered a panther mill from them in April 2018. Five months later and it is September and I still have not had a responce to my phone calls or emails. Still no mill.

    If you have knowledge of this thread before you ordered then you are the only one to blame lol. Sorry. I'd open a case with my bank or credit company.

    Hey guys, new on here and this is an old thread for sure. Wish I’d have found it sooner! Ordered a Panther2 last week and get an automated email saying the time now is 4 to 8 weeks due to medical issues. I have emailed the guy twice and tried to call to cancel order to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Just cancel with the PayPal account you paid with, and order a Granberg.

    Is it safe to say that’s what you did? Ordered mine dec 15th 2018 and everything seemed normal. Six weeks passes and i email the guy and get the automated response.

    I ordered the 72” mill. Cant afford the same from granberg

    I ordered with a credit card...have emailed the guy 4 times and called once, no response. Gonna wait the 4 weeks and then file a complaint with Florida attorney generals office. Probably won’t do any good but what the heck. It’s unbelievable to me that someone in business like that would just abandon any customer service...SMH...
