    I've finally got hold of my makerslide after missed delivery by courier and having to collect it from their depot.

    Looks good. Now just need all the other mechanical parts. Is there somewhere they are available in the UK or do I have to have them made up myself?



  • jons

    Any updates on how the packaging is going?

    I wonder if they're trying to use a repaired version of the original defective die instead of having made a new one (in order to save themselves money). This might explain why even the second die is still not working reliably.

    It probably wouldn't cause any additional delay to change manufacturers at this stage. This current bunch of jokers have still not produced a working die, just two abortive trial efforts, so they are still at the very first stage.

    It may be just as quick (or even quicker) to give the job to a professional company who know what they are doing and who can promptly deliver as per their quotation.

    Just some comments on the latest update.

    I'm not sure I'd accept the position of the extrusion company on this matter. They are supposed to be experts, they had the drawings prior to quoting for the job and knew exactly what they were required to manufacture. Now they have the job they are saying they can't do it, and asking you accept modifications. This seems very unprofessional.

    I'd be asking them why they can't deliver what they promised they would when they quoted for the job. I'd also be asking them why they can't successfully extrude the beam when the US manufacturer appears to have no problem.

    Coupled with their clear lack of attention (e.g. not bothering to collect the die promptly, failing to keep you updated etc) I'd say it's about time to sack this company and go elsewhere.

    If they have any of the money I'd tell them they either deliver what they quoted for, within a very short timeframe, or they return the cash immediately.

    Give the job to someone more reliable and more professional.
