As far as poor instructions are concerned, there is a moral dilema if not a legal one. A ticking off from Axminster wouldn't go amiss either.  Have dealt with Axminster for many years now and always found them to be most helpful so it annoys when someone clearly takes advantage.  Is there another angle to this?  Selling something without adequate instructions puts the user at risk of an accident, and accidents with this sort of machinery can have dire consequences.  Would HSE have a view on this?

I think you will find on the legal question re instructions. Ask the question " Can the machine be used safely without instructions or the poor ones supplied. If the answer is no then they could be breaking some regulations. Is the machine CE marked?

Phone Ian Styles at Axminster and ask him what he thinks. It would be interesting to hear his response. Also a call to trading Standards might be interesting.

Good luck on whatever you decide to do

I don't think the Lyndhurst people will get much trade from readers of this forum with their attitude. My home workshop looks like an Axminster showroom,I wonder why?
