    I am currently tracking down the shipper for "compensation", so you all should let me know what flavors you want and I'll make sure your ice cream is covered as part of the settlement

    think it will be fine
    Maybe, the issue is the rapid change in temperature from ice cream to california "on fire"....tends to cause water collection on the machine....in your scenario you don't have such a rapid change in air temp and therefore less condensation

    It's like getting a happy ending at a funeral. Yes it costs more, but it's not what anybody wanted or needed.

    Pretty sure TD was being sarcastic.

    And if shipped in a normal air ride when the outside temps at wintertime?
    If you buy a CMM in the UP of Michigan for delivery in January do you expect a heated trailer?
    If you tried to fire it up and run before full temp soak (which will be days) maybe you should not be owning a CMM.
    Also do not put it in the shop where sunlight falls on it through the windows as the day moves. That seems simple and obvious but I've had to deal with this on service calls.

    Wonder if tom can do a xcel spread sheet on this?
    Put in the right data and it will tell us what flavor ice cream it was...

    Yeah I usually realize people are sarcastic /after/ I reply. Rarely fails. Bear with me, I'm a little slow.

    It's going into temp controlled room with no windows, and of course there will be a long break in period.

    Bought an FP4NC Deckel from Canadian government auction in Quebec.
    Arrived in a reefer with frozen food,(shared load)
    Offloaded and placed inside the shop . Opened all cabinets and covers, removed all circuit boards...set aside in still air, relatively stable temp.
    No power for two weeks....
    Machine has been fine, no problems.
    Cheers Ross

    I think it would help to tarp and place a dehumidifier under the tarp for a week
    after receiving it.
