I posted this previously about an acrylic extension table for my Viking Designer 1. I went to AllBrands and ordered one before I got a message telling me they were not very reliable. Well, it has been 21 days since I ordered and I do not have that table yet, nor is it on the way, that I can tell. Where else can I get one of these tables without having to wait weeks to get it at an extremely high price? Anyone have an suggestion?

These people were at the Road2CA show. Hope this will help.

I'm surprised that allbrands has a bad rep. I have never had problems with them.

I had ordered one from Allbrands last year. It took a LONG time to get to my house, and I thought maybe the order had been lost. But it did finally arrive. If I remember right, it was almost 6 weeks before it came.

Thanks, maybe I am getting impatient, but I could sure use this table now.

The ones that I looked at on their site specify that they are shipped within 2-3 weeks from a different warehouse. Add the UPS ground time to that, usually 3-10 days for ground. If you ordered a custom one, it's possible that it could take longer.

The only issue I have had with allbrands is about 13 years ago my neighbor and I decided we'd both order a $800 sewing table. She wanted an oak finish, I wanted white. We both placed our order separately about a day apart. We got our tables and loved them. A month goes by and she comments, she hasn't seen the charge on her c.c bill. I told my hubby and he double checked our bill. They charged me for her table too! Very odd! Luckily, we were good friends so I just had her write me a check. We didn't notice the double billing as the charges appeared on two different statements. Not a great way to do business. Charge other people for someone else's order.

That being said, they have good prices and I didn't have problem getting my product...just the billing!

Someone on this board listed a URL that showed 100's of complaints against this company. That was some time after 2/17, when I placed my order. Most of those complaints were from 2006-2008. I don't recall what website that was. I had already ordered my table so it didn't make any difference. I understand that they cleaned up their act since then. This is information only. If I can come up with that website, I will list it. Meanwhile I am waiting for my table and hope for the best.

Hmm. Interesting. I do think 3-6 weeks for these custom type products is reasonable however. Koala cabinets and inserts can take 3-6 weeks for delivery. I don't know what brand you're going with.
