    Has anyone had their Amiga no returned by amigakit.co.uk?

    Hello,
    Has anyone suffered misfortune or loss of their treasured Amiga on sending it to Amigakit: amigakit.co.uk for repairs? I've waited nearly 6 months to have my Amiga 1200 board re-capped and inspected, and the only response I received 3 months ago was there was a backup of repairs from the Holidays. They don't seem to answer the phone much and their 1-800 number seems disconnected. Is there any suggestion on how I can expedite this, or should I cut bait and ask for my trans-Atlantic shipment to be returned?
    Respectfully,
    Mike

    I've not sent them anything for repair before, but I've purchased from them, and I met Matthew Leaman personally once, and he seemed like a nice bloke, so I'd be surprised if they don't get back to you at all.

    Maybe you just need to send them an email to give them a kick up the backside. Its possible that they might have lost track of things if they've had a backlog.

    I was at the latest LAG meeting yesterday. We had RobertB over from America; apparently it took AmigaKit 3 years to recap his A600 .

    3 years? They used to be fairly active on AmiBay promoting their products and even attended some of our events, but have been really quiet more recently.

    That surprised me, so I'm not sure what happened there.
