    Ordered from who?
    I ordered a custom ground reamer from Manson. Dave said it would be six weeks and I had it in three.

    Sad deal I detest a Liar. If one cannot tell the Truth it is best just not to Speak. I was getting reamer's from somebody else and this was my first chambering reamer from David Manson. It is dead on to my specs. of which I also had to approve prior to it being made. I personally think the Quality was also quite abit better and I also liked the approach of measure / check twice before doing the work. I did make a few small changes after reviewing the first print sent.

    Which is why it's completely reasonable to expect that when someone says they'll have something done by a certain time, that it will be done at that time. Sure, you might excuse some exigencies, but some people have a habit of over-promising, and under-delivering. If you can't rely on them, they don't deserve your business.

    I'm not sure who the manufacturer in question here is, but I have a pretty good guess...
