    Couldn't agree more Rick

    Dean has been just about the only thing that's stopped me giving up completely on my machine. His honesty and style is possibly abrasive to some but personally I find it refreshing. I can understand and respect that. He's got a knack for making the complicated simple and that's a gift. Only wish I'd known him before I'd made a purchase!

    Unfortunately people like this often get away with it, seen the same sort of thing in different industries where they don't lose anything personally & just start up again with a different name, doesn't help those that have lost money but if your spending that sort of money on machinery then go & visit the company before parting with any cash & make sure you do your research properly. Having been bitten ( very very big style) 10 years or so ago I'm a lot more careful what I do with my cash & if a deal looks to good to be true then best advice would be to give it a very wide berth.
    The thing that started the alarm bells ringing with me is that, Jazz took one look at it and then reeled of a lengthy list of downfalls, not all cost controlled. If a company is being run to provide for this demand then you would think they would have seen these downfalls in the design stage, and rectified them, Unless they were out for a quick buck that is.. Bloody JAZZ can see it a mile off and points it out (thankfully) to ignoramuses like me.. (Maybe that pic of the GD is really JAZZ!! the sniffer..LMAO)

    These weren't exactly a bargain price, not to the extent where you'd smell a rat. And many of us did visit his workshop and demo. OK the machine design could have been better but still serviceable, however unless you know in depth about such things you wouldn't have thought much less of the machines. Most of the CNC buying public don't give a damn about how they work, they only want to know if it will do what they have in mind.

    Top and bottom. The UK sucks for reasonably priced machines for the DIY, hobby and small commercial sector. Limited choice means you either have to lock yourself in a darkened room for months brewing your own or you take your pick out of a bunch of bad to average machines! That's the truth. Folks like Michael make things that bit worse too.

    I keep badgering Jazz to start selling machines. I'd be first in line I tell ya!

    Jazz is a result of some fool giving Yorkshire electricity, I argued till I was blue in the face that it would be like giving Iranianís nukes, no good will come of it, they are far better off in the dark / ages! But did they listen ? Noooo, now we have Yorkshire wisdom delivered in a nonsense way. Lol !!

    Jazz has helped me out lots of times, I find his attitude refreshing. I have no doubt its alienated me to others on the forums that I take his side on many issues, but hey this isnít a democracy.. oh and by the way if anyone knows of a democracy still in existence please let me know Iíd love to see one in action.


    I wish I had found this forum before I bought the CNC , I may have not bought what I did, but there is a consolation I paid so little for it that as Irving pointed out the whole is worth more than the price and could be adapted or re jigged later, when I have some money.

    Only a Lancastrian could come up with that . . Lmao . . . And anyway I'd still have a working CNC machine without electrickery I'd just have more kids and make it treadle powered.

    This is turning into a bit of a Jazz worship thread and I don't agree with that.

    He won't be able to fit his ugly mug through his workshop door if it carries on

    ... there I have brought some balance to this thread now.
