Re: Getting ahold of Cannonball

They said they did. They weren't in my regular or junk email folders. Thus, I have no idea. Their answering machine also seemed to work some times, and other times it just rang and rang. Again, I have no idea.

Re: Getting ahold of Cannonball

To complete the circle, Cannonball emailed me yesterday that they were mailing the part. From what I understand from talking with them, they had the castings in stock for what I wanted (the headlight) but I asked for a custom number and I bought the assembled headlight.

Re: Jesse Livingston

I hadn't seen him on the board since 2008. In fact, when I did see him I was surprised because before that he had been gone for a long period.

Re: Getting ahold of Cannonball

I finally heard back from them. They said they emailed me a week ago. I didn't get it. Maybe a computer thing? Oddly, though, they suggested I leave a message on their answering machine but I let it ring for what seems like forever and never got a machine. Anyway, we are in business.

Getting ahold of Cannonball

Re: Women in the hobby?

A bunch of old, crust men yelling and talking probably won't attract women... they only attract other old, crusty men.

One could ask why men aren't drawn more to knitting and sewing.

Re: Tom bee

I ordered some couplers recently and it took two months to arrive. His assistant (a woman whose name I don't have handy) frequently said that they would be shipped "next week." After getting that response 3-4 times, I stopped asking. Then they showed up.

They are great couplers by the way.
