Yup, still working very well for me. Too bad the initial design was so flawed, I'm getting good prints. My only concern is the c-board.

I just bought a Spectra, so I'll be talking to you soon.

Oh yeah Kirk would have to go down with the ship no matter what happened. There would be no excuse to give to customers that could make many of them understand and I think he knew that. But just wanted to give insight on my end since I knew the guy personally and knew a lot of how the business operated.

That's how it seemed to me but coming from Billy I know I'm getting the other side of the coin and makes sense. Now I know who to blame. Doesn't matter anymore though, it did hurt back when I was 25 and no cash but barely recouped not too long ago but was an experience I will tell you that

Re: T-jet 3 Problems

You're probably right but when the Enterprise ran into trouble it was Captain Kirk that took the heat, not the crew.

Re: T-jet 3 Problems

You got to know that Fresener was not handling everything on his own. He once had 75 employees working for him. He couldn't keep track of everyone and had managers in place. So I think some of these managers could take the blame for some of the issues that customers were having.

Yes Anthony there was free support. At one time I believe there was 25 people working in the tech support department.

Yeah that's how I treat my guys here. Got a gym and all. You have to pay well in this market when you get someone good or else its hard to find a replacement. You guys used to give free support for other printers?

U.S. screen was pretty much forced to shut its doors down. For the last year they were in business they were owned by another company. This company supposedly didn't pay the rent for the last few months on the building and the last month didn't hand out pay checks to the employees so everyone was forced to leave. The company that had bought US Screen was having money issues and of course would try to save itself from that then take care of US. I used to work there so this is how I know.

I remember a lot of people losing a lot of money over Freezer products. Funny how he is still around selling stuff and giving advice.

I wouldn't trust him as far as I could pick his crooked a$$ up and throw him.
I agree, one guy I connected with back in the day was quoted a machine and sent a wire a week before they went out but no machine sent. I have all this proof still by the way and not afraid to say anything public because I still have proof
