Preparing your Othermill for Shipment

Pack your Othermill in its complete original packaging, including the three rails covers. If you received the original packaging and/or rail covers in a damaged condition, please indicate this when you submit your return or exchange authorization request, so that alternate instructions may be provided. When inserting your rail covers, face the Othermill towards you and make sure that the bed is all the way front, the x-axis carriage is pushed all the way to the right side, and the spindle head is completely down. You may have to hand turn the lead screw of the spindle head to get it to move the spindle head all the way down. The covers will make sure that the bed, carriage, and spindle don’t move during shipping. Any movement could damage the Othermill and invalidate your return.


Please mail products in their original packaging to: 3101 20th St., San Francisco, CA USA 94110, and include your return or exchange approval number in the box before shipping.

You are responsible for paying the return shipping for any item. We recommend using a traceable shipping service and purchasing shipping insurance. We cannot guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
