Walpole Woodworkers - Expensive Lantern - poor quality interior parts, made crooked base....

We bought the Montgomery Lantern over $500 purchase, along with the Hammond Post. Came with flimsy lightweight directions, ABC....GHIJ - left you to figure out how to fill in the blanks. Interior workings of this lantern were inferior parts for the money we paid. Crooked when built, so it sits crooked, we had to shim lantern so it sat level. We waited to install these two items by a few months, so by the time we actually started working on it, it was too late to send it back. Years before, we bought the Sheffield Arbor with bench, one of its lattice panels was total dry rot just painted over, the company did make good on that item, and sent a replacement panel. I recommend waiting to buy till you are sure to install as soon as you receive item, as their items are expensive, and beautiful, but are painted over cheap things that you may have to doctor up, with no clear, well thought out instructions to help their customers. They need to come up in quality.
