OT: The gremlin trix is MIA (rant)

Well what a day. As many of you know I have been woking on a project gun for a while (the gremlin matrix). Well today my my little project took a turn for the worse.

It got the gun back from milling (by mr2tenths) about 7 weeks ago. Well I then decided to send it off to Max to get anodized. I was orignaly told by Max that it would be 2-3 weeks. Well week 4 rolled around and I had not gotten the gun back so I decided to see what was up. I e-mailed Max and this is the responce I got on July 26th

"The Black parts are being Anodized, and the Blue Parts are finished. It
should be out at the latest Tuesday next week if we have any problems."

No problem I can wait another week. End of week 5 and still no gun so I e-mail max again but this time no answer. Then today I get a call from Ken at K&P and he has some bad news......He ask's if I have checked Max's site latly. I say no and then he drops the bomb shell.....Max is closed, they got bought out.

So I get home from work go to the Max site and this is what I find

"MAX Anodizing is closed until further notice.
We are NOT ACCEPTING new work.
If you have anything in house, please e-mail:
owner@maxanodizing.com
THIS IS THE ONLY WE WE CAN BE CONTACTED!"

Now my gun which I have put months, not to mention hundreds and hundreds of dollars, into is now Missing In Anodizing. I sent an e-mail to the contact on the site, but Im still quite pissed that the previous owner of Max did not get his affairs (i.e my freak'n gun) in order before this happened. Now all I can do is hope my gun gets back to me....

Please dont anyone go e-mailing the crap out of them just yet. This may get resolved quikly and easily with the new owner.

Im mainly just really pissed at the previous owner for not getting the work, which he was already paid for, done before they closed up. I have no doubt Im not the only one getting screwed over on this deal. Max has been screwing crap up latly, guess this is just the final screw over.

I hate stupid people.

I remember a thread on Max (I think) a while back. It wasn't good. This proves that the owner wasn't to good. He should have still shipped the completed projects even after they sold out. On that note best of luck getting it back fast Grem. Can't wait to see some pictures !

They are located in Red Rock Texas. Here is the exact address

MAX Anodizing
582 Bateman Rd.
Red Rock, Tx. 78662

Gremlin,
Using cached pages in google, I found this for their phone number:


Give that a whirl and see if it's still connected.
