I am ordering the parts for a new table I am building, I ordered the 6' rack from Amazon and this is what showed up :cry:

I hear you, I ordered some window channel for some Jeep doors I'm building, and the Channel showed up in the same condition. I suppose you could make a curved table to match your rack. :mrgreen:

There was a $12. difference in price I guess it was discounted. :lol:

Nice! Moore Gear will know what a rack basically is and that care must be taken to ensure safe delivery so the product may be used as intended. Amazon...Well, lets just sell as many as we can. Nothing to worry about.

Maybe you should contact them about drone service. :lol:

That first picture is so wrong since we know what's in it .. On the bright side you can cover all 3 axis from one rail :lol:
