I am currently really, really bummed.
I had gotten a lead on a Northfield 16 HD jointer that might be for sale in late December. I contacted the company that had it and was asked if I would like to make an offer.
I emailed an offer for the jointer and another tool that I knew they had. I then spoke with the gentleman that I had emailed the offer to an was told that the machinery was mine and not to worry about it being sold to anyone else.
I contacted him again today to see if we could arrange a mutually agreed upon time to pick up and pay for the machines and was told that there was a problem. He had been told that the machinery was not available and he didn't know why. He did say that he has seen the machines and they are still on-site. He is trying to find out what the real story is and is supposed to email or call me today or tomorrow.
I am sooo disappointed. I have been looking for a decent Northfield 16HD for over a year. I made an extremely fair offer and thought it was mine.
Sorry, had to vent a little.
