I'm glad he's still listed there. I was really surprised when I didn't see him listed. I don't know how I missed it.
Anyway, another week has gone by with no response from him. I have emailed him and messaged him on facebook, and he simply refuses to respond. How hard is it to say "Hey, XYZ happened and so your order is going to be delayed by such-and-such a time"? He's actively posting in multiple groups on facebook, so there's no reason he couldn't respond to one of my messages.
I say again, buyer beware. Either he's completely overwhelmed because one of his jigs broke and he's trying to complete back orders, or he's completely content to take your deposit money and ghost with no further communication. There's no way I would place an order with him at this time.
