    Man, what a move up from my Silent Partner swing.

    I literally called Tim last week to order.

    Whoever the hell said this doesn't have a brake did not get the LF quantum.


    :D

    Good job! Hope you get many years of enjoyment out of your new machine.

    My friend received his last week. It is a sweet machine. Very well-built...the tensioning system is outstanding and the clamps are superior to the ones on my TT. In fact after I saw it in action I was a bit jealous; though I do still like the inner frame mounting and single action clamping of my TT.

    It has a brake? Tim told me it didn't unless you use the lock that is used for shipping.

    What?:confused:, Are you serious? You called Tim last week, and today you got your machine? Were you on the waiting list?

    I was supposed to be on their waiting list since May (I'm sure other people have been waiting longer), but they never e-mailed me that a machine is available for me:evil:. Not sure that I would get the machine anymore, since this machine is similar to my Revo (I inquired about the supposedly revolutionary Quantums before the pictures came out, thinking it would be a different design). You would think though that the least that LaserFibre could do is give the people on the waiting list a chance first, but I guess not. Something is seriously wrong at LaserFibre (I guess we already know that), if this is true.

    Yeah, seems that people who've been on the waiting list for a year, or more, aren't going to be too happy about this.

    Am I the only one who sees this as a joke? I mean, didn't Mansewerz already get a machine?

    I hope you had a very good laugh and a lot of FUN with your little joke here because YOU JUST COST ME MY PLACE ON THE WAITING LIST:evil::evil:.

    I sent LaserFibre a very nasty angry e-mail this morning because I thought they were sending machines to people not on the waiting list. This afternoon surprisingly, I got a response from LF saying that they HAVE NOT sent any machines to people not on the waiting list. They also said that my “choice of words” though understandable regarding my frustration were not necessary, and definitely not appreciated. They said they don’t want to do business with me anymore.

    I was going wait for when LF finally say that my machine is available, to decide whether to go through with my order or not, but I guess you made that decision for me, THANKS TO YOUR LITTLE JOKE. I was not in a hurry to get a new machine especially after seeing the pictures of the supposedly revolutionary Quantum looking like my Revo. But thinking that LF allowed someone to jump ahead of me on the waiting list made me mad.

    Dealing with LF has become a sensitive subject on these boards, and YOU SHOULD THINK CAREFULLY before you play a little joke. A lot of people had difficulty and are very frustrated dealing with LF over the past 2 years. Although I don’t contribute a lot, I frequently read the post here, and am well aware of people’s bad experiences with LF (most recently by smarion2).

    That little quotation you have under all your post… Roger Federer would be disappointed that you are using it, and not really applying it.

    EVERYBODY… PLEASE NO MORE JOKES REGARDING THE QUANTUMS.

    Wow......

    No offense, but I think a sincere apology is needed to KingO, Mansewerz.

    This is a classic case of a joke gone wrong.




    Unless KingO is joking, which in that case I will be upset. : )

    No apologies needed Mansewerz.

    Actually, what I meant was my joke should be the last. LOL!!!

    No! I didn’t send LF a nasty angry e-mail. I did ask them how far down I am on the waiting list though, but have not received a response yet (did you guys really think that LF would respond that quickly).

    Sorry to upset anyone… but he started it!

    Man, you should have waited until he issues an apology to you first before letting the cat out of the bag... That would have been a bigger bomb! :)

    Hats off to both of you. You both got me good, too...:)

    I was really going to wait, but I didn't want to get Mansewerz in trouble with the "powers that be" on these boards. I'm not sure how much joking is tolerated.

    It is true though that LaserFibre stringing machines has been a sensitive subject on here, and we should be careful about making pranks like this thread.

    I'm really sorry KingO. I didn't mean to cost you you're waiting place. I was trying to make this place a little more cheery considering the recent threads on Laserfibre. Sorry I didn't check this thread quicker. I would've apologized quicker. Real sorry man, good luck with your machine endeavour.


    EDIT: A joke on the joker. Very nice. Should've read the whole thread before apologizing haha. Glad nothing happened.

    You just got PUNKED!!!

    No, really. I love jokes just as much as the next guy, but this thread serves nothing else than to ruffle some feathers, sorry.
