  • something came in the mail....finally

    Previously I had bought 3 gear cutters from Banggood and they did the job OK, good enough for me anyway. Now I needed a 48Dp cutter but BG only sells Module type so I went with a .5 M cutter as it is very close and will fudge it a bit. So almost 2 months later and no cutter. When I ordered it it was "out of stock" but miraculously it was back in stock 2 days later and according to the notice they sent me it was shipped. They also guarantee delivery within 60 days so a few days before the deadline I emailed them that it had not arrived. I quickly received a reply from "Mitsy" that said to wait 3 or 4 days and see if it arrived. Amazingly on the 59 day it showed up. It gets better, it wasn't from China but made in Thailand and appears to be of a better quality and to get here on time it must have been shipped air express. They must had to find one and have it sent direct from the factory. I don't know if the original one was lost in the mail or didn't actually get sent but they did make good on it.

    Or it was in the postal service pipeline for the entire time. I have had some packages show up 3 months after the order and at that point I have already got the refund from the seller. Typival shipping time to here is maybe 2 weeks but some packages take 6 weeks. Overall I have lost ”forever” maybe 1 package out of 100
