Yes, Don't expect E bay to protect you all the time- they are better than when a guy sold me 3 hard drives and never sent any. Well my .44 awaits meeting him one day and he will not like the profit he made then.

If you can find out the seller's city and state. Tell them you know where they live and to save shipping, you will come to their house and pick up the package because you are going to be in town for a couple of days.
I have used this several times and it has always worked. One guy even upgraded the shipping to Next Day.

Skywave, can you help me with a customer that needs a Revox A77 "looked at". Not sure what's wrong, if anything. May be just a clean and inspect, he pays well...

It is best for those in that state to look for those who do work in their state or close by to them. Why ship a unit all the miles when you don't need to?
I recently got involved in a unit that came from the NW part of the states- it was suppose to be gone through. Well when I put MDS36 the tape it was suppose to be set up for at 0 Vu, I got a saw tooth wave out of it. The thing is some guys show you 2" 24 track decks they work on and if they did what they did to this deck they might as well leave the business. I corrected all the problems but it took 2 hours to do all the stuff he missed.

Fine it looks like like the knumbskulls on a certain TH forum they are trying to chase me away from here- don't worry my black list will expand.

I know you guys are OK but it just takes a few to ruin it for the rest. I have a good idea who CE5 is even though he tries top hide it.

Sam, just say "At least I am not as far behind as Nakdoc." The only way I'm going to get caught up is by retiring and closing the shop. I have a new "hobby" shop space in a friend's house and will be able to focus on cassettes only!

I don't think anyone is more behind than me. This is why I have to take drastic action. I don't know what Nakdocs backlog is at as he has never told me but I keep on sending him clients from down there. I guess not until he gets established again. Hey we all have out problems, Dan called me with a Nakamichi 700 this morning and I don't really have any answers for him. I guess in some decks when the heads get worn they might not show it in frequency response but the noise level goes up.
