VERNON's obligation under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement at its option at no expense to the original purchaser (except as to breakdown or failures occurring more than six (6) months after shipment, for which such purchasers shall pay Vernon's labor cost of repair or replacement if necessary) of any components or parts thereof which Vernon's examination proves to be defective. The original purchaser is responsible for shipping charges to VERNON's factory for all warranty repairs.This warranty does not apply to any equipment or component thereof which has been subject to misuse or accident or improper installation, maintenance or application, or to any parts which are subject to wear and deterioration under normal circumstances such as lenses, fuses, lamps, scrapers, electrodes, shunts, emitters, cutting nozzles and the like.
