Here’s are thank you emails from recent customers:
Thanks for the prompt and thorough rebuild you did on my early 1990s machine. I’ve had a chance to run it through it’s paces and it performs as I imagined it did brand new — perhaps better.
You are now in my permanent contact list.
Thanks again, Jim
As, for your handiwork, it was worth the two weeks it cost me without the unit (it all became a moot pointe anyway because the unit was not running anyway). The unit runs extremely well and is much quieter (to be read as tighter) than when the unit left my place. And all for a reasonable cost!
So I say thank you for there turn-around time and a reasonable cost to repair. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
And one from a parts store customer:
Part received today(bearing and button) that was shipped Friday. Up and running! Thanks for your quick response and the video for the repair was great!
Thanks! Let me know if you need good feedback Thanks , Norm
