If I hadn't just finished building my own I'd definitely be up for 5 of these. I reckon you'd struggle to make them for this price!

My caps arrived Monday and look fantastic.
Even if i didn't get them on sale they would be worth the asking price for not having to mess around making my own.

Hi Mac,

I gave one of my good mates a still i'm not using anymore and he needs a few parts to complete it and has tried contacting by phone, i understand you are in the middle of a move but he also needs advice on a few products. Can you advise when 5 star will be up and running again? :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Thanks

Hardie

Have you tried using the contact form on 5 star site? If that fails, try the numbers listed at the top of their main page. Sometimes emails get lost in spam filters.

Cheers,
Prof. Green.

I found email through site was no good, but once you speak to Sue or Allen returned emails were no problem.
There very helpful people :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Does anyone know if email is still the preferred contact?

I sent an email a week or so ago and not heard anything back.

I'm thinking no, I sent an email probably 3 months back and never heard back.

I have spoken to Sue and she advised me that email is still the preferred contact method.

Also 5 Star are having some difficulties continuing to operate the business at full capacity due to health reasons and have had to scale back a bit.

So in a nutshell you will just have to be patient. I am sure Sue will drop in when she can to shed some more light on the situation.

I Feel like it would be disloyal to use the resource that is this forum while purchasing somewhere else.

However after trying a few times by email since April and now hearing of Ill health, don't want to be a PITA either.

If I donate some money to ad and buy what I need from another au seller, would that pass muster?

Was really hoping to buy through five star again but as stated don't want to be a PITA for Mac and Sue.
