Yeah I have. Very strange story. I was a 'very good customer' of Adams. He was great. Got me all sorts of things and delivered to Oz in 4 days. Then I made a large order and waited months. Contacted him again, he said ' Yeah yeah it's all packed' then nothing again. Repeated emails no reply. We were on very friendly terms as far as I was aware, exchanged lots of cyber pal emails- he even sent me a Christmas card 2012! I've tried contacting him many times but have given up.
No bad terms, he was doing very well from our business relationship, he just stopped contacting me. I assumed he may have had something unfortunate happen to him, like a case of death or something.
To this day I haven't got a clue what happened. Great service till then even if it's a little 'exy'

What are you particularly after from this supplier?

I can see nothing you can get from him that you couldn't source locally in Australia, or purchase a bit cheaper from elsewhere. Most of the things he has could probably land you in trouble with customs.

Maybe we can give you some pointers about where to get what your after.

I was sourcing other suppliers for fuse mainly, as I don't like getting my supplies from the same supplier, just like to spread around in case the shit hit the fan like when pyro-stuff went (i had a large supply of various fuses get caught up and Aust Post sent me letters verifying if I had received any goods etc.... a bit of wakeup I think).
But now it get my fuse from a couple of sources and the rest of the chems mainly from Oz.
