    I'm on a VERY limited budget and was pretty excited about getting the cutting table at JoAnn's with the sale and extra 25% off, BUT, all went well while putting it together, UNTIL it came time to put the hinges on. I'm no slouch with tools, so I really did know what I was doing. The pre drilled holes didn't match. I should have checked all of the before I started, but didn't. My table is horrible and I'm thinking of loading it into the car today, assembled, and taking it back. there was also a gouge in the top. Maybe that is why they were on sale...

    I don't blame you for wanting to take it back.

    definitely take it back - I got that type table maybe 8 years ago & it works fine. You must have rec'd a lemon or quality has declined over the years!

    the store should tell you that it is on sale due to defects. otherwise, i would expect a perfect product. i'd take it back.

    Even after all your time and tears. I would take it back. If you still want one make them take it out of the box and see if everything is ok. I purchased one about 8 years ago and it was great. I guess their workmanship is far below standard now. Sorry you spent all that time to put it together...

    I would take it back...and maybe check the new one before you get it out of the store. My DH didn't realize that the clips on the underside were set where they were so you could slide the legs in so I have to lift mine a bit on one side to get it into the channel, but no biggie. Just a mention if you do replace it, I assume they are still made that way.

    Yea, it seems that everybody who has this table that bought it a few years back definitely got better quality than they are offering now. Too bad, cause it was a nice table.

    It does seem that way. My two have been workhorses for years - and I'm not gentle with them.

    I mentioned on another thread that I did replace the smaller hinges with piano hinges - made them even stronger and more durable for under $20.

    Maybe it was just a bad one. I've heard many people rave about them.
    Sorry for all your trouble though!!

    Okay, I took it back and got my money back. the JoAnn's here is great and the gals are friendly. I'm going to go a different route. Maybe make one out of plywood, but will have to wait. I spent the refund on gas. Dang.....

    I bought one back in November and had some of the same issues. I'm no stranger around tools and how to adjust so I made new holes so that things would match up. I would take it back and ask for another one and this time have the table match up and adjust the holes. If you have a guy (or girl) friend who knows how to fix wood things maybe they can come over to help. Good luck!

    I looked at an Ott light at JoAnns the other day that was deeply reduced. They told me there was nothing wrong with it, just a return with a beat up box. They said it's not returnable so I assembled in the store and the neck of the lamp was broken. Why would they try to sell something like that?

    I agree with everyone else. Take it back. They start to wobble after about 7 uses plus you can never get it tight again.

    They will be happy to take it back and give you another in return. Where I live in Pa., they couldn't be mor accomodating.

    Items go on and off sale all the time and never because they are damaged or seconds. When things are damaged they sell at 75% off so if you can make it work I would ask for the additional discount. And yes nothing, even at expensive stores, is made as well as it used to be.
