I agree with this.
I had something similar happen with a die I got from JD2. I think mine was just mis-marked because it was a half-round, just the wrong size. I realized this on a weekend and was able to tune it up with a boring head on my milling machine and keep going.
I file this under "shit happens". In my experience, JD2 does a very good job, and I have heard the same about Pro Tools, but sometimes stuff slips out the door that shouldn't. It just sucks that you're in Australia...hope you don't have to wait another 14 weeks for a replacement.
