    I heard a horror story about an outfit that had a heck of a time getting back their $$,$$$ die back from a defunct plastic molding shop. It was like an episode of "Mission Impossible".

    I've searched for a while this morning, But cannot find it.

    Could someone point me in the right direction please?

    I appreciate all the help. Though my dilemma has not been solved. I would like to think that a tool company as big and great as Miller, Will provide me with some better help.

    It is a 12-15 year old machine.... and Miller is in the process of putting the part back in production.... All companies have supplier hiccups... but Miller is actively working to resolve this one..
    That sounds pretty responsive to me... what do you expect?? Room Service??..

    Why don't you post a picture of the broken part? I'd be willing to bet one of the guys here can figure out a fix.

    I actually just inspected some raw castings for this today. They look good so we gave them
    the go ahead to send them to be machined. I'm not sure where we are on their schedule so
    I can't give you a hard date but it's a local tooling company that we work with quite a bit
    doing the machining so I don't think it will be too long.

    Sorry thats all the info I can give you right now.

    It sounds as if Miller is on top of this one...may take some time...BUT, if it comes down to it, if you have a broken part and a welder and a lathe and a milling machine and know how they work/how to use them YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING!! That is my "motto" and so far I haven't been stumped!

    Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.
