Default Closing shop :(

Hi guys.

Iím closing up shop. Sorry for the short notice. Donít know when or if I will reopen. Got other things I got to take care of at the moment, and I just canít run the business right now.

Iím going to try and get as many paid orders out the door as I can, but if I canít, Iíll refund your money.

Hate to do this to you guys, you guys have been the best customers, and I still am in awe over the success I have had. But Iíve just lost the will to do this right now, and am stepping away from it all for the time being. Iím probably not going to be logging on or checking e-mail or anything. So if you donít hear from me, please donít be offended.

Even if we are sorry to see your products go for the time being, I am sure you are making the right priorities. Hope to see you back when things are less hectic Shawn.

Sorry to hear that, too, Shawn. I am just finishing a build using your GE burner can and I can't believe the level of detail that you put into your work. Hopeful that you get the mojo back somewhere down the road. If/when that happens, I will be first in line to place an order!

I was looking forward to the AN/ALQ-131 pods you were going to put out, but I understand your reasonings, that is for sure. Good luck with everything! I hope all is well with your wife, I know it has to be hard to have her on deployment and being "single dad" for a year. Best of luck to you Shawn. I truely mean that.

It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

Hopefully this is just burn-out, the family is doing well (taking up too much free time), and nothing more serious.
I've always thought your stuff was top notch, among the best.

Sorry to hear this, Shawn

As already said, hope you find the strength and desire to return when time allows. You'll for sure have a loyal customer base for you when/if you deside to come back.

Family is always to priority, so don't worry - you know what is right for you and when
Best regards

I have many of your sets Shawn but had planned on picking up some more. Some of the best stuff around.

Hope you are able to come back in the future when you get your mojo back. Take a well deserved break. Family first, hobby second, that is my motto.
