Would You still waited for parts so patiently after paying full price in advance? And would You still be so supportive for manufacturer knowing that?

Trust me I am so pissed I can hardly stand this anymore, but given the other choices have no choice but to wait. He does answer his phone and does apologize but never seem to get any parts. When they come they will be nice. Everything I have received from Jeff is superb both form and function. The time for delivery is ridiculous at this point though. They say good things come to those who wait...

We all paid a down payment, not a lot if I remember right and I know we will get the parts eventually, but when is the real question.

I could ask my friend if he could make this for you at his machine shop. The work they do is pretty spectacular. There are companies that will only use them to machine their products they are that good.

I'm pretty sure Jeff (machinist) made the CAD files. hence why the wait also.

I ordered full set and paid in advance. But waiting for near TWO YEARS is something that exceeded my understanding of situation. I would understand it but different estimated waiting time was agreed.
I finished my engine build, I moved to different home and my small daughter learned to walk, run and speak...
I am patient but every time there is answer that it is almost ready.

There is simply Zero excuse for this long a wait, just praying that he will eventually finish what he has started.

I'm not involved in any way with this group buy. However, I have met Jeff, he's a stand up guy. He's very busy and he does good work. I do not know the details of this particular transaction, but I belive he's running full load which is why he has not delivered yet. I wouldn't worry about him finishing what he started.

I know Jeff very well and I like him but everyone has their breaking point. Over 18 months now on the ACG, over 2 years on my full pulley and gear set. Good grief!

Here is my story "full pulley and gear set buy": On Thursday, Sept. 29th, 2016, he e-mailed me, ... I need to order bar on monday so I can begin production. ...
On Wednesday, Dec. 06th, 2017 I asked him to admit he is not able to deliver. On Friday my refund was issued.
Furthermore I asked him, if I could have his CAD-files, then I could/would supply him with the needed parts and he could satisfy his valued customers, but he denied. But I found a local supplier, who did the job for me.

Here are specs for the belt grooves, which was the most important thing to know.

HTD 9,525mm (3/8 inch)

Default Refund

Dear Rennlisters,
I kindly asked for full refund due to lack of fulfillment of my order in given time. To remind You all I ordered full pulley kit in October 2016 and at the beginning of 2017 paid full price in advance. Finished product were supposed to be delivered in “next weeks”
Now at 17.06.2018 I receive answer that:
”[...]
I'm just to loose the time and material Karol, on luxury items. That's not how it works. Now I've told you I no longer run these as production. That I now work for a company and my time is limited. You are NOT the only one waiting and I've most all the parts done.

If you don't want the parts when you finally do get them then sell them.
[...]

If I post that I have a kit for sale once I'm done and someone takes them, I'll give you a refund. But I'll not be taken for time and materials and tooling. These parts don't fall from the sky like magic, especially if you expect them to actually work. I've been making these for 15 years Karol, I understand your angst, and disappointment, I truly do. I'm as disappointed, as I have 400k$ worth of machine tools that just sit most of the time now, and I still pay rent on a shop to house them.

My situation is much more disconcerting than your 900.00$ dollars. I can assure you

[...]

Everything has its limits.
I don’t know what kind of financial pyramid I was dragged in but after refusal of full refund and above statements I started to take legal actions.
Again. Everything has its limits.

Dude.....the correct protocol is to display a dose of sympathy, offer up an imaginary solution (ex - "a machinist I know might....."), then go for the buzzard swoop....
